While it's generally a given these days that the stuff President Donald J. Trump's stubby digits tap out to the Twitterverse often seems to rival lines from the movie Idiocracy (covfefe anyone?), sometimes it's all too much for even Twitter users to bear. This was the case early Saturday morning when, in a burst of inspiration, our fearless leader decided to make the case for his own mental stability and intelligence.
....Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. 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.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2018
....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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2018
When Trump tweeted “I am a very stable genius“ this morning the 25th Amendment literally jumped out of the Constitution.— Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) January 6, 2018
Regardless of the comments by Twitter users and political pundits on the talk show circuit, it seems Trump still hadn't learned his lesson.
Trump, asked why he tweeted about his mental stability this AM, responds: "Only because I went to the best colleges... I had a siutation where I was a very excellent student... Ran for president one time and won. And then I hear this guy that does not know me..." (via CBS) pic.twitter.com/zmZwyNrNNV— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) January 6, 2018
