Everyone's a Handwriting Expert — Even The Donald

We know Jack Lew’s signature wouldn’t win any gold stars for penmanship. President Obama even joked that if he’d known Lew’s John Hancock was so loopy, he would have reconsidered his nomination for Treasury secretary.

But self-proclaimed handwriting analyst Donald Trump says Lew’s signature isn’t just bad. Rather, it tells the real estate mogul-turned-wannabe Republican political leader something about Lew’s innermost thoughts.

It’s “extremely secretive,” Trump told Fox News (via Politico).

“It shows he’s a very, very secretive person, unbelievably secretive, which of itself is interesting,” Trump asserted.

And what might “secretive” Lew have to hide? Trump thinks his 2011 testimony to Congress on Obama’s economic plan was “probably false and probably knowingly false.”

Hmmm. Wonder what some Democrats might say about The Donald’s combover hair-do. Maybe he didn’t get enough love as a child.
