A meeting of the minds

Another step toward what I call the reality-TV-ification of everything: today’s Donald Trump–Kanye West meeting. Here’s a transcript of some of what West said.

How glorious to have two proud non-readers of books in the Oval Office at the same time.

[Yes, Kanye West is on record as “a proud non-reader of books.” Donald Trump says that he reads “passages,” “areas,” “chapters.” Not books.]

And by “chapters”, he means the infograph captions in USA Today.

Very complicated captions. The New York Times once reported that National Security Council staff were told ”to keep papers to a single page, with lots of graphics and maps.” Like restaurant placemats for kids.
