"smart" people can rapidly exchange complex ideas with words. "simple" people trying to follow along quickly get lost. not because they are stupid. but because the topic is outside their world experience. the simple person is aware of this. and promptly labels the smart people smart. the simple person can tell from cues, like being happy, who won the exchange. and hence who is smarter.
smart people talk to trump. quickly get frustrated. cause he's incoherent. he can't complete a sentence much less a thought. smart people get angry call him bad names. like idiot, scumbag, liar, crooked, etc. simple person watches the exchange. quickly gets lost. same as before. determines these two people must be smart. stops listening. starts watching to see who wins the exchange. and hence is smarter. the smart person is unhappy. trump is smiling. seems pretty clear trump won.
