Trump don't trust the airplanes


Add modern aviation technology to the list of technological advances the President of the United States distrusts.
“Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly,” President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better. Split second decisions are needed, and the complexity creates danger. All this cost for very little gain.”


Not sure I entirely disagree with him. Look at some of the weapons systems we’re struggling with, like the F-35, the New Ford Class Carrier for ex.


Trump can’t figure out an umbrella, so of course he disrespects trained pilots.


When yer rolling out on final in a driving rainstorm and lots of wind in the dark - just tell the controller to turn the ILS off - you’ll do it by the seat of yer pants - see how that works out

Okay, I paraphrased some of his past claims.


If he was a decent person he wud go fix Mudours power problems




Well, I knows everything there is to know about sciencez. More than anyone has ever known. Let me tell you all about gratuity. You’re gonna love it. Gratuity is so beautiful, but sometimes gratuity makes the big beautiful planes fall. But that’s mother nature. You win some, you lose some. Well, not Trump. Trump wins, you’ll see. You’ll get tired of winning! Lock her up!
