Re: Trump & Co don't know?

"I believe that the average American is vastly smarter than the media folks are prepared to admit."

That is so true! However, the bar is set extremely low by the media.

Having said that, there are some clever USAians who are simply poorly educated or have been fed lies for long they simply don't understand certain things because they have no background knowledge. I've seen it posted here a few times that many, many Americans have no little or no clue about how bacteria and viruses spread because it's either not covered or barely touched on in educational settings lower than university. (Maybe that depends on where in the US they were educated/?) I hear that in some places the theory of evolution is given the same or less importance than the hypothesis of creation.
