stuĚpid
/ˈst(y)o͞opəd/
adjective
having or showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense.


The people who believe the demonstrably false claims of Trump and have other misconceptions are very sensitive about being seen as intellectually inferior.

Let's not forget what we all realized in school. We are not all intellectually equal. The kid who invariably gave the wrong answer to the teacher's question was considered stupid. Perhaps the kid was actually intellectually lazy. That's the very close cousin of stupid. There's little practical difference between not being able to learn and not willing or wanting to learn. Nor should we pretend that a stubbornly held false belief is an acceptable alternative to knowing the facts. We shouldn't respect mistaken notions.

If the dunce in class told the teacher that Americans participated in WWII to "free Europe of socialism" we would consider him stupid. That is, by the way, what Sen. Tommy Tuberville claimed.

The stupid people we see on TV, online and in real life who make inane statement are not the same as those with genuine intellectual disabilities. The truly intellectually disabled are generally smart enough to keep their mouths shut.
