President Trump is no longer surprising. In fact, he has very likely depleted the concept of astonish for a number of years.
This is a man who stared directly at the eclipse. A human who simultaneously calls white patriots “very fine people” and experiences a feverish thrill at the sight of a big, big truck. A human who challenged his secretary of state to an Iq test in an on-record interview with a magazine.
The president is a cartoon German son in lederhosen, licking a huge lollipop and telling the neighbors he could have them evicted. A middle schooler playing Risk and setting the board on fire when he loses Australia. Trump is predictable in the sense that you can be sure that whatever he does will be the most unhinged version of the wrong thing to do.
And so, we’ve decided to perform an experiment. We’ve made a list of 75 bizarre things that we believe could be reasonably done by Donald Trump in his time as POTUS.
Go ahead, take a look through our listing and consider how many times you think, “Yeah, that’ll likely happen.”
