I get that there is a chunk of America to whom Trump has a visceral and emotional appeal.

I get that he has channelled a certain amount of real anger and real anxiety that does not reflect in a lot of the specific facts and stats like those in an article debunking his claims and checking his facts might reference.

​I also get that Hillary Clinton is a person who a certain chunk of people will never, ever like or vote for and that, despite the fact that her qualifications are vast, her liabilities are real.

But it’s inescapable that Trump is completely incompetent and ignorant about how the world works and how the government works and it’s manifest that he possesses no obvious insight into the matters which impact those who support him and no apparent ability to address their anger and anxiety.

​Put simply, Donald Trump is a charlatan. An utterly incompetent man who is completely out of his depth and impossibly unqualified to be President of the United States.
