Shouldn’t POTUS know these things?

By JOHN KANELIS / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

I want to ask a question that should have been asked of Donald Trump at the Miami town hall session he held last night.

Trump received a question about conspiracy theorists, such as QAnon — the right wing goofballs who back his candidacy for re-election. “I don’t know anything about QAnon,” he said. It’s a familiar dodge that Trump has employed whenever he gets asked about, oh, white supremacists, or the KKK, or any of the loons who want him re-elected.

The question that never seems to get asked is this: As president of the United States, arguably the most powerful position on Earth, shouldn’t you know about these groups?

Trump seems all too willing to fall back on some sort of “I know nothing” defense of what I believe is the indefensible.

What also is indefensible has been the media’s reluctance to challenge him directly on what to me looks like an obvious follow-up question.

One thought on “Shouldn’t POTUS know these things?”
