It's the next morning and what Trump said about the Internet sounds no less insane

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s unspeakably bigoted and un-American proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country – including U.S. citizens -- is rightfully garnering most of the outrage and headlines since it spilled from his fevered mind yesterday. But what this dangerous demagogue had to say about the Internet deserves a fair amount of attention as well, if for no other reason than it’s scary as all hell:  

"We're losing a lot of people because of the Internet. We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, 'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people."

Reading the words isn’t enough. Watch him flail and sputter.

Bill Gates … closing that Internet up in some ways … freedom of speech … foolish people … word salad.

Never mind that he’s running for president.

What kind of an adult talks this way?
