Now, however, that ignorance has reached the highest levels of American governance. Did The Great Trumpkin really sign an executive order without knowing what was in it? Did he really reportedly have to ask what Vladimir Putin was talking about when the Russian president brought up an arms-control treaty in a phone call? Is his Twitter feed really a blizzard of embarrassing misspellings? Was there really a misspelling in his official inauguration poster? Did his Education Department -- repeat: his Education Department -- really misspell "W.E.B. Du Bois" and then, misspell its apology? Did he really praise Frederick Douglass, stone cold dead since 1895, as "an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more?"
