In­tel­lec­tual drivel

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - INBOX -

Phillip Adams’ col­umn is gen­er­ally spot-on. But when it comes to Don­ald Trump (“Van­ish­ing act”, May 12-13), in 88 years I have never seen so much in­tel­lec­tual drivel. Is it that we ex­pect the leader of a world power like the US to be rea­son­ably in­tel­lec­tual? Adams, a for­mi­da­ble in­tel­lec­tual jour­nal­ist, has fallen into this trap. No, Trump is not in­tel­lec­tual but by our ob­ser­va­tion is highly in­tel­li­gent and clever. We, the in­tel­lec­tu­als, must have the in­tel­li­gence to ac­cept that we were wrong.
