Don’t get it twisted: Trump isn’t thinking on a deeper strategic level than anybody. Ever. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Here’s the New York Times piece that Trump is griping about:

A senator who supports the bill left the meeting at the White House with a sense that the president did not have a grasp of some basic elements of the Senate plan — and seemed especially confused when a moderate Republican complained that opponents of the bill would cast it as a massive tax break for the wealthy,according to an aide who received a detailed readout of the exchange.

Mr. Trump said he planned to tackle tax reform later, ignoring the repeal’s tax implications, the staff member added.

The eternal question is: evil or stupid? Does Trump really not know that the health care bill is a huge tax cut for the rich? Or does he just not want anyone to mention it in his presence? The problem here is that Trump would have to be really, really stupid not to understand that the central provision of both the House and Senate bills is a huge tax cut for the rich. I mean, nobody is that stupid. Right?”*

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)


  1. Paul Ryan is third in line… if you get rid of Trump and Pence.. ugh! We're knee deep in shit with no end in sight.

  2. As aggressive as he can be. As rapey he can be. As much of a bully he can be. The manipulation from his donors is unbelievable.

  3. Well John, he's a president. Are you a president John? Cenk?

  4. With how they treat the opioid crisis, we can def. say if trump is racist its against the human race itself. The disenfranchised groups are easy targets for abuse/apathy bc of peers. But truth is Trump doesn't give a shit about 98% of us. He knows nationalist had hopes on him and doesn't give a shit. Obama cared more for white nationalists than trump did LOL.

  5. Trump is a con artist plain and simple.

  6. Yeah, he's an idiot. That's why he got elected: Americans felt he was one of them.

  7. Get him treatment? He's 70 fuckin' years old … There's no treatment around that will fix that peckerhead. He has zero impulse control, and will continue to behave as he has. It's his goddam enablers that are equally guilty.

  8. I don't even think Donald knows how to use a needle. Let alone threading one. And I don't just mean a metaphorical needle. I doubt that he has ever had to use a needle in his entire life. But if he tried I think he would have an easier time at it, because threading, and using a sowing needle, is always easier when you've got small hands.

  9. I think it's way past time for Pence to declare for 2020. I wouldn't want him to win, but he could still find himself running with the advantage of incumbency. I'm personally hoping Pence becomes president before Xmas 2018, with minorities in the house and the senate. I would myself sacrifice one of my own eye-teeth to have Trump leave the Oval Office tomorrow, for no better reason than serious gastrointestinal pangs. I'd be willing to do that much for America, and only for the sake of America, even though I know it would hurt.

  10. Both hillary and trump are horrible on foreign policy reflecting the cesspool of ignorance that is murica . One makes a war with Russia possible and another war with the middle east ,africa and North korea

  11. These idiots don't see what is in front of them. If someone keeps doing exactly what they want to do and what they say they will do, they are obviously intelligent. President Trump has installed 3 times as many judges than Obama did in the same time and Obama had a super majority that the republicans could not do anything about. President Trump makes you look like idiots when you keep saying he can't "get nominated", "beat Hillary", "get his choice of judge on the Supreme Court", etc. He keeps winning and your heads keep exploding. This is amusing to watch.

  12. The title of this video is enough to understand this channel is just opinion…not actual news.

  13. "He's not even on slow, he's on rewind" ROTFLMAO – Cenk 2017

  14. yea no i'd rather have trump hurt the republicans by being in office than having mike pence

  15. That 3D chess metaphor is HIGHLY ILLOGICAL Spock would agree🤣🤣🤣

  16. Not a fan of the man, but with an IQ of 156 he's among one of the smartest presidents we've ever had.

  17. 3:15 I have to disagree with Cenk's assertion that Trump couldn't thread a needle…I mean, those tiny hands & digits would probably be an asset for needle threading, no?

  18. Trump: 'click' 'click' 'click' 'click' 'click' "King me!"
    Putin: "This is chess…"

  19. I genuinely think he might step down once he gets bored and wants to play more golf.

  20. I'm completely terrified about what happens if theres a war. do you really want the military to have to explain to him what the nuclear triad is if the North Koreans launch an ICBM?

  21. no shit trump isnt playing 3D chess trump is playing nothing thats why he is better then pence and hillary clinton

    see they would be playing give the corporations everything they want and according to you trump couldnt do anything illegal because he is to stupid to it has to be pence so you are saying put the guy who has been doing illegal stuff in charge if anything illegal has been happening

    that makes 0 sense what people need to remember is trump wants nothing done so any time one of his horrible bills gets passed he ruins it by calling it what it is a travel ban if he didnt do that then that bill that pence wanted would have stayed

    trump is playing the nothing game and its way better then obamas tic tac toe game that got us obamacare that trump is to stupid to over turn and obama gave the corporations everything they wanted trump isnt doing that

    thx for this ha bisky vid trump is doing less horrible things then clinton would have and you know that

  22. And yet, he's smart enough to steal the election right under the nose of the Intelligence agencies and the media, right, TYT?

  23. I'm not sure Trump is smart enough to wipe his ass

  24. Don’t you think you’re a little young

  25. Funny, I started watching TYT because I distrusted mainstream media but these guys are just as stupid now.

  26. Funny, because look we got a goddamned peace conference in North Korea right now.

  27. 🌞🌞😂😹😇👼🤴👸🤹🎭🃏🃏🃏🃏🎭

  28. He is King of kings and Lord of lords C says:

    These idiots think trump is dumb😂😂😂😂

  29. The young turks are so blinded by hatred. They are doing exactly what they are accusing republicans of doing i.e using inflammatory language, they are shutting down people and debates without providing alternative options or providing the facts on why someone should shut up, disagree with everything that is not done their way. They are behaving like an authoritarian, communist regime.

    It is very sad to see that in the last 10 years anything from centre right is considered Nazi fascism.

    What has Trump done to you that you pretty much want him dead? So much hatred… You forgot the awards black community gave to Trump, you forgot the women he employed in top positions in his organisation in the 80s, you are forgetting his work for the vets at Mare Lago.
    He is definitely profitted by using loopholes but certainly not from creating a mess in other countries for profit. i.e Clintons, Biden.

  30. Morons can't recognize 4D Chess. That's the point.

  31. It's 4d chess, wut are you dumb as hell or something? lulz

  32. With 4.7 million followers, you are saying that a billionaire don't know what hes talking about? LOL

  33. Trump is so dumb that he can even defeat the Democrats.

  34. If Trump is reelected you can still impeach him. This time maybe the Republicans will do the right thing.

  35. Trump played 1D chess. Listen to his GA phone call to Brad. LOL. That is 1D chess right there….

  36. He is difficulty not playing with a full deck.
