Trump declares himself a 'stable genius' after book author says 100% of his team questions his mental state

President Trump defended his intelligence and mental stability on Saturday morning, saying in a series of tweets that his "two greatest assets" have been "mental stability and being, like, really smart."
He added that he believed he was "a very stable genius."
Trump's tweets came on the heels of Michael Wolff's explosive new book about the Trump White House.
Wolff said in an interview Friday that 100% of the people around Trump question his intelligence and fitness for office.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday morning to defend his intelligence, which he said was smeared by Democrats and the "fake news" mainstream media.
"Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence..." he tweeted.
"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart," he continued. "Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star ... to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!"
Trump's tweets came following the release of author Michael Wolff's explosive new book about the inner workings of the White House, "Fire & Fury: Inside the Trump White House." Wolff said the book was based on over 200 interviews with the people closest to Trump but warned that he isn't certain all of its content is true.
And after some questioned the explosive book's veracity, Wolff said he had dozens of hours worth of interview tapes with top officials to back up his reporting.
In the book, former White House chief strategist and head of Breitbart News, Steve Bannon, is quoted eviscerating Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., his daughter Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Bannon, according to the book, called Ivanka Trump "dumb as a brick" and unleashed on Kushner and Trump Jr. over their Russia-related activities.
And in one noteworthy exchange during an interview with "Today" show host Savannah Guthrie, which may have prompted Trump's Saturday tweets, Wolff said that every single person around Trump, including senior aides and family memers, questioned his intelligence and fitness for office.
"Let me put a marker in the sand here: 100% of the people around him," Wolff said.
When Guthrie asked what else people around Trump said about him, Wolff said it was that he is "like a child."
"And what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification," he said. "It's all about him."
Trump and his allies quickly hit back at Wolff and Bannon following the book's release.
In one of his most scathing statements as president, suggesting "Sloppy Steve" Bannon had "lost his mind" and was "only in it for himself."
"Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was," Trump said. "It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books."
He also called Wolff "a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book," adding that Wolff used Bannon, "who cried when he got fired and begged for his job."
"Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad!" Trump said.

Every stable genius walks around tweeting about it.

What a fool.


Pretty much has proven Wolf's book right.

He has lost it, if he ever really "had it".

Well, if he tweeted it, there is no reason to question it. It's not just his opinion, the dragons in his kitchen told him the same thing.

"Very successful businessman" is a relative term....Seems by most accounts he's very successful at hiring good accountants, tax attorneys, etc. and accepting money to bail himself out of his numerous failings from taxpayers, banks, oligarchs, the mafia, etc. looking to launder money through his various entities.

I'll give him this, he's got the balls to violate the legal system at every opportunity in order to save himself. Here's the thing, however; his ego that drove him to become president and to go to any measure to win, may be ultimately what puts him in prison. That of course being that Mueller, while not being able to prove collusion, could eventually find the evidence to prove years of illegality with Trump's finances.

Once Trump is out of office the feds and even various states Attorney's General could indite, prosecute and jail him. Obviously Trump's years of questionable and potentially illegal activity may very well drag some of his family down with him as well. All of which could take years and cause significant financial and mental anguish on a person who clearly is already unstable.

No matter what Trump actually accomplishes as President, he may, in the end, pay an extremely high cost that he never could have imagined when he decided to run for the office. I think deep down this realization has hit him square in the nuts.

Mr. Ed was a stable genius.

trump, just a horse's azz.

A really smart person doesn't have to attempt to tell others how smart he is. Trump's tweet is nothing but a series of words from an insecure fool.

What are you talking about? We have a poster in here who tells us how smart he is and how stupid we are. Are calling him a liar?

3 more years? Think he can make it, both from the outside and within?

I've always thought the worst thing about Trump wasn't necessarily his lack of knowledge and how things work, which is pretty big I know, but I thought the worst thing was how often he would show and remind everyone how little he knows. I remember saying something on here during the primaries that the worst part about him was when he opened his mouth. Mouth, fingers, tweats, all the same.

I don't know where the legal issues are going to end up for him, but I do not think he runs for reelection. For one, the potential of him losing from an incumbent position might be too much to bear. Losing as somebody who didn't appear to have a chance to win the first time around is one thing, losing when defending the office you achieved - I think he bows out to not have to go through it. For two, the establishment Republicans are going to try and undermine him again and if he does try for reelection, I could see him having Republican challenges in a primary, which would be pretty interesting. Seeing parties fight among themselves is pretty fun. Costs money though, money that otherwise would go towards defeating the Democrats, so that would really be interesting to see how the party would handle that. For three, does he really have it in him to do that all again? The trick and show worked once, is campaigning and debates and all that comes with that...is he really want to do that again? Does he even want to be President for a second term? I doubt he runs again.

Oh, he'll run again because he honestly thinks he's done a great job. Is there a chance he could be impeached? Maybe, but it's not likely unless the Democrats can take the Senate in the midterms, which will be tough considering how many seats they need to defend in red states this time around. This would put Republicans in a tight spot, as I'm sure they would prefer their chances with Pence on a presidential ticket rather than Trump, but I'm sure that would upset some of Trump's diehards who might sit out the election all together like some Sanders supporters did last time.

Well, he's right that Trump is a master of distracting the media. Not sure if that makes him a stable genius though.

"Stable genius". Good lord. That is unnerving to hear a president say .Man, I hope we get through this.
