He can’t read!

As in actually functionally illiterate. Sam Bee explains-

— Donald J. Trump

Ten pages! tl;dr. Proper form is lots of cartoons and pictures and charts and favorable mentions of the awesomeness of Donald J. Trump from Faux and Fiends. And then there’s this-

Breaking with tradition, Trump skips president’s written intelligence report and relies on oral briefings

He rarely if ever reads the President’s Daily Brief, a document that lays out the most pressing information collected by U.S. intelligence agencies from hot spots around the world.

Trump has opted to rely on an oral briefing of select intelligence issues in the Oval Office rather than getting the full written document delivered to review separately each day, according to three people familiar with his briefings.

Reading the traditionally dense intelligence book is not Trump’s preferred “style of learning,” according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

And that despite the fact they deliver it in the proper form.

He can’t read! A totally real, 100% valid theory.
