Doddering

When Ronald Reagan was president he was asked by an investigating committee if he had secretly sold arms to Iran (which was illegal) and used the proceeds to fund a covert war in Nicaragua (also illegal).  His reply was, “I don’t recall.”

Seriously!

And there were people who leapt to his defense, saying a president couldn’t possibly be expected to remember every little detail of every little thing that went on in his administration.

So just imagine how much damage Donald Trump could do if his image was that of a kindly, doddering old fool.
