One thing you can say for sure, if you need to tell people you are a stable genius, you most definitely are not.

"I'm smart! Not like everybody says... Like dumb... I'm smart and I want respect!" -Fredo Corleone

Only other person to have famously used the word "like" in a pathetic defense of their intelligence level. Disturbingly appropriate company.

"a very stable genius."

t has been my past experience working with psychiatric patients that only people who harbor mental disorders of some kind seriously refer themselves as "geniuses". I'm quite serious.

He's not a 'former' reality TV star; he still is. Re 'former' developer? The world can only know when he releases his tax info.

Well, this "reality TV star" just completed one of the most successful and effective 1st years in Presidential history, and is well on his way to a second term already.

Oh, by the way, he released his tax info. Just ask Rachal Maddow.

-12 ( +3 / -15 )

@clamz Oh, by the way, he released his tax info. Just ask Rachal Maddow.

Yes, Maddow showed parts of his tax info. Why won't he release his full info? He must be hiding something. Investments in uranium mines? War industries? 'Loans' from international 'financiers'? Personal debts?

Well, this "reality TV star" just completed one of the most successful and effective 1st years in Presidential history,

In what ways has he been successful? When the majority of Americans disapprove of what he has done, how could he be successful?

The issue isn't President Trump, or Russians,

For a minority of Americans that might be true. Re the Russian connections, the majority of Americans believe it is an issue and want to learn more.

If this were true, it wouldn't need to be stated by the person himself or his followers, the media would already be all over it.

So who are you trying to convince? Those with blind faith don't need convincing, and the rest of us already see it for the baseless blustering it is. Seems like a pretty useless statement overall. Something a stable genius may say.

Little thing called the economy. You should look into it and its ramifications for everyone.

Sorry. That is factually wrong. The majority don't care because they believe it to be "fake news". Even leftist rag Newsweek admits it;

President Trump is following through on every campaign promise and in short order.

Demonstrably false.

As Stranger said, those that are, do; they don't go around mouthing off about it.

I just don’t get how someone close to him failed to recognise this genius and called him a “( expletive ) moron”.

Perhaps this kind of genius is best observed from a distance.

He is a very successful businessman. Just ask Deutsche Bank. (Well, Mueller is, anyway.)

He seems to be equating being a successful con-man with being a genius, and if he fails to shut down the FBI investigation into his business and political dealings, he won't be a successful con-man for much longer.

As evidenced by the stock market? Obama tripled it and kicked off the current bull market.

Like making Mexico pay for a wall that hasn't even been begun? Repealing Obamacare? Draining the swamp? Wait. None of that has happened yet.

I think many Brits see the Trump news stories and feel that little bit better about Theresa May as PM.  "Well, at least..."  Anyone else think so?  Not much positive about Brexit but far less negative than the continuous mess Trump is making of the US and his 'foreign' policies.

I keep thinking of the TV drama Scorpion and how often they quote their own IQs so we don't forget.

I don't blame the President for giving a stupid statement to a totally stupid answer. I would do the same thing. The media keeps trying so hard to punch him and the man punches back and good on him. As if the man is going to say, I'm not that smart, who would say that, No One.

And his devotees said amen.

Those who’ve been waiting to call Godwin’s Law, you can do so now. (from Wikipedia): A big lie (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously."

Well President Trump is certainly not stupid....far from it actually, however he is in no way a genius.

I would classify him as a megalomaniac who is not particularly fit to be in office. The author of the book appears to be a real "doozy" also as he has admitted making some of the stuff up.

In the end there are plenty of practical and real examples demonstrating his incapacity to be the Commander in Chief.

@Tokyo-Engr

Good post. I also think ‘stupid’ is the wrong word. He does say and tweet stupid things but that is usually because he is throwing a tantrum. However, he is ignorant and spectacularly uninformed about issues that matter. He’s incapable of speaking at length on anything of substance - I remember one observer comparing Trump’s speech patterns to watching a released balloon flying chaotically around a room.

So one of the ‘revelations’ of this book is that Trump is like a child? This has been patently obvious for a very long time.

This spoiled brat, tantrum-throwing ignoramus should not have the nuclear codes.

Trump is truly an idiot's idea of a smart man. No wonder he attracted such failures are white supremacists to his banner.

Maybe, although I have a pretty sizable bet on Trump not completing a full term. The odds have tumbled since that bet was struck. I’d recommend putting your money where your mouth is given your degree of certainty.

However, regardless of the effect, the idea of Trump attracting white supremacists is factually correct.

clamenza: "Little thing called the economy. You should look into it and its ramifications for everyone."

You obviously have no knowledge of how the economy works. All of the positive effects on the economy at present are the result of the Obama era kicking in. The ONLY effect Trump has had is with news of the tax plan passing some companies are making immediate, short term changes. The effects of his plan and what companies will continue to do will not be seen or felt for some time, and already economists are predicting there could be disaster (everyone knows the middle class will be paying more tax, not less, within ten years).

In any case, no one says "I am a genius" unless they are not, and unless they are a three-year-old child. DEFINITELY no one says, "I'm stable! I am! I'm stable!!!" unless they are the opposite. I also love how the moron claims he ran for president successfully for the first time after claiming mental stability, and forgetting he ran once before! haha. No, genius he is not, and mentally stable, anything but. God bless the United Shshshshs.

I wouldn't say 'far from it'. I really do think that he's intellectually limited, often comes up with simplistic and one-dimensional strategies/policies/tweets etc. Thing is his 'limits' are probably overshadowed by other traits/issues he has (egomaniac, impulsive, unnecessarily mean/aggressive etc) so in a way, yes, he's more of a sociopath than a village idiot. He's a weirdo.

@Clamenza

Just trying to do you a service. I think my chances of winning the bet are about 50-50 and the current odds reflect that estimation. It’s just that you are using words like ‘will’ when talking about Trump winning a second term, never mind completing his first term.

I just think this degree of certainty warrants a bet.

You are really that sure, aren’t you?

The Dow Jones skyrocketed when Obama left the White House after 8 disastrous years.

The Dow Jones went from about 8,000 to over 20,000 in the 8 ‘disastrous’ Obama years.

Some people made quite a lot of money. One of the criticisms of the recovery under Obama was that it disproportionately benefitted the already well-off.

Looks like another one who missed the boat. There does seem to be quite a few Trump supporters who seemed to miss this boat.

What do these people read or watch? I shudder to think.

@Ray Payne Lets clear up a few things for you there... Trump is a professional successful businessman..if you call stiffing contractors and going bankrupt 3 times successful good for you others would call it criminal hence he has so many huugee court cases pending.

Ray Payne: "Trump is a professional successful businessman"

Hahaha... yeah, how many times bankrupt? And where did he get his money to begin with? He's about as big a success story and hard worker as Eric Trump. Like him, Papa Trump got his money from daddy, and failed with it time and again. Trump can't even pay off his lawyers on the myriad of lawsuits against him, has a failed university, dodged the draft several times, and is now making millions off middle-class taxes. Everyone who supports him is a "stable genius".

Trump is to undergo the first physical examination of his presidency on Jan. 12. The exam was announced on Dec. 7 after questions arose about Trump's health when he slurred part of a speech announcing that the United States recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Some good news at least.

I read a report today where it said - shock, horror, the author of Fire and Fury said whatever he needed to get access to the White house.  And then I thought, who else did that?

Best comment though was on the (booming) NYT, cant recall word for word but it was along the lines of:

Expecting President trump to do the best for America is like demanding your cat do the dishes.

Trump is a professional successful businessman

Except for the two qualifiers, I'd agree.

Trump is the most dangerous American president in history. Unstable, mental and psychological deficiencies, immature and childish behavior. A moral bankrupt. More of a loose nuke in the White House than a loose cannon. The world will remain a more dangerous place while he remains in office.

Nothing wrong with that. Just because your parents give you something by inheritance or you learn the family business doesn’t mean you have a cake walk.

Like him, Papa Trump got his money from daddy, and failed with it time and again.

He did? Looking at his life, his money, property in business’s having multiple properties, golf courses, a helicopter, a private jet, a very lucrative TV career for 14 years and now the Presidency, if that’s a sign of ultimate failure, I really wanna know what success looks like!

Trump can't even pay off his lawyers on the myriad of lawsuits against him, has a failed university, dodged the draft several times, and is now making millions off middle-class taxes. Everyone who supports him is a "stable genius".

I don't know it's fair to describe as dumb, semi-literate, mentally ill and stupid person by journalist because he didn't like him and he didn't like his policy. However, I do know such as baseless description and the allegation was cowardly make by hidden behind the freedom of the press was appalling and disgusting. Such as a person who tried to make money by writing a fabricated story about President is cowardice and low life person.

Does Michael Wolff believe every word come out from Steve Bannon were true and correct? If he says so and then he was the one who should call himself an idiot stupid.

Michael Wolff and his colleagues set up Bannon with dinner and squeeze him to talk about his experienced in the White House and with President Trump. Peoples like Steve Bannon will exaggerate and lie when he told his story to other peoples and make him himself smart and look good. So peoples like Michael Wolff too. For him, meeting with Bannon and getting the story from Bannon is golden opportunity for him to make money and prove himself to wife as he was someone else. Also, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for to make himself one of the greatest investigates journalists in history

The left wing liberal journalist losers are trying to destroy President Trump because they have lost in fair and free Presidential Election. President Trump’s policies are against their Left wing liberalism. They don’t like President Trump’s anti-global warming, anti-Muslim and anti-immigration and Middle-East policy as well as Trump recognition of Jerusalem as Israel Capital. So these peoples are trying to destroy President Trump’s character, mental stage and everything they don’t like about him except his life by dirty left wing liberal journalism.

I’m Buddhist. We Buddhist believe and accept Karma is very important in our lives. We believe in Karma or not, but when the time has come the Karma will come and knock our door regardless. We can't hide and we are the only person beneficiary of our own good and bad Karma, which we have done in the past.

We have to wait and see how Michael Wolff life has changed after he wrote this book, bad or good he is the only person beneficiary of his Karma.

Jealousy won’t get liberals anywhere. I would never apologize for being affluent or I don’t think anyone should, whether I got from my folks or passed it on t my kids. So yes, one of those stories, I was lucky I was able to get a kickstart to get to where I am and there’s no shame in it. And if Trump was able to get a loan from his father because of his wealth, good on him.

Ok, so you're not going to apologize for something no one asked you to apologize for. Got it. Have you got a list of things you aren't going to do that no one asked you to, or is that it?

As for Trump, he doesn't have to apologize for something no one asked him to apologize for either. But neither does he get the credit for building building a business from nothing without getting a boost from his father, because he has not built up a business from nothing without getting a boost from his father.

There has never been a socialist president.

We do. I like moving my money around by buying houses in different places. I also use it to upgrade to business class when I fly out to cover breaking news or to visit my family in Europe or to meet up with my family that are in the FBI. I'm so rich and smart.

I don’t think they’re that ones that missed the boat, I think most liberals are just bad at math.

If you want to focus on the last 5 years, do you accept that the stock market also improved in the last 5 years?

That was never the issue. We are going by how the exiting last President left the economy, so yes, Obama did save the economy from further tanking for the first 3 years and after that, it was all downhill. 

I regard these things as facts based on every source I’ve come across on stock market performance in the Obama years. If you don’t accept this, please post links to figures which show otherwise.

Again, I already did and once again, I wasn't talking about the first 3 years, but the rest of the years spiraling downward after that. But if you want me to give the man credit, fine, faulty stimulus, inflating the economy and bailing out the banks and car industries is an indication of success, inflating the economy and turning it around and increasing the entitlement culture.... I guess.

I see, but all jokes aside, what else can the Dems do? Trying to be funny is not liberals strongest virtues, but on the real, what will they run on? What’s their platform?

All jokes will be aside when Trump is off the world stage before long. He's the biggest joke you guys have ever produced.

In 7 more years you can party like its 1999. So tell me, besides imposing taxes and taking other people’s money, why are the Dems good at? The way things are going now with the economy and with each passing day, even the people that don’t like Trump will at least tolerate after seeing the markets keep overflowing with cha-ching $$$

The economy booming like never before, unemployment and food stamps at historic lows, Muslim travel ban in place, wall being built, FBI closing in on Hillary, L'il Kim groveling on his knees, UN payments slashed....

Keep the jokes coming', baby!

I see, but all jokes aside,  thats just it , would be a joke if it wasn't serious, Trump may be many things but hes far from genius and certainly its that stable.

The economy booming like never before, was also booming leading up to the 2008 GFC, nearly all respected economist state Trumps 1st year in office isnt solely or even mainly the reason for the strong economy, his tax cuts haven't even taken effect yet.

Muslim travel ban in place, hardly.. Saudi Arabia the home of the most notorious Muslim terrorist is free to come as they please. those Muslims with relatives in the US are also free to come and go.

Wall being built, more like a fence which was already being built when Obama was in office, and Mexico certainly isnt going to pay for it.

Obamacare still there , hasnt been replaced.

FBI closing in on Hillary, like Hillary even matters since shell never be POTUS, Even if Hillary is found guilty wont stop the FBI investigating Trump.

L'il Kim groveling on his knees, hardly, hes still got nukes and the missiles to deliver them.

UN payments slashed.... and yet the UN is still functioning and most dont even agree with Trump. lol

Keep the jokes coming', baby! dont need to Trump makes them up as he goes along. LOL

*The economy booming like never before, **was also booming leading up to the 2008 GFC, nearly all respected economist state Trumps 1st year in office isnt solely or even mainly the reason for the strong economy, his tax cuts haven't even taken effect yet.*

Yes, that is true, but after that, the last 5 years of Obama’s Presidency welfare increased more than any other President since the war to about 41%, over 43 million Americans were living in poverty, 13 million on food stamps, one of the worst recoveries since the 40’s, lowest labor participation rate since the 70’s, So if you call that booming, I hate to see what a failing economy looks like.

*Muslim travel ban in place,** hardly.. Saudi Arabia the home of the most notorious Muslim terrorist is free to come as they please. those Muslims with relatives in the US are also free to come and go.*

Yes, it’s bad, I totally agree, but as in the case with China, we need the Saudis, so dealing with them is like swallowing bad medicine, we need their oil and I don’t know about you, my car doesn’t run on French fry oil and when I paint on my canvas, oil does come in handy. That’s just politics.

*Wall being built,** more like a fence which was already being built when Obama was in office, and Mexico certainly isnt going to pay for it.*

Where exactly? Is it made out of light bending reflective materials?

Obamacare still there , hasnt been replaced.

Not yet, the year just started, but at least the dreaded mandate is gone. Hallelujah!

*FBI closing in on Hillary,** like Hillary even matters since shell never be POTUS, Even if Hillary is found guilty wont stop the FBI investigating Trump.*

No, it won’t, but it doesn’t look like after more than a year of investigating that anything will happen to Trump, if there was a smoking gun, we would have known about it already. This group of Democratic witch hunters are trying their best to find anything and so far nothing, so they can keep going and waste more tax payer money or bring this slowly to a close, if Trump felt that bad, he would have and could have fired Comey a long time ago, but he didn’t. As for Hillary, even if she doesn’t go to jail, but to at least know how corrupt she was and to reveal that to the world is more than enough.

*L'il Kim groveling on his knees,** hardly, hes still got nukes and the missiles to deliver them.*

Yes, but we do have tons of Nukes and like Trump says, at least his button works, so if Kim wants to keep his country, he needs to make a choice, either way, Trump and Mattis are determined one way or another to protect the homeland and if Kim makes one wrong move or even blink, that country will cease to exist.

*UN payments slashed....** and yet the UN is still functioning and most dont even agree with Trump. lol*

It’s not about of the U.N. can function or not, of course they can, they just won’t get money from us 22% of that and that will hurt in the long run.

*Keep the jokes coming', baby! **dont need to Trump makes them up as he goes along. LOL*

He is indeed a funny man, got give him credit for that.

Yes, sir. How many conservatives are on Mueller’s team out of 22? How many of them donated to conservative candidates or causes? Why isn’t there a single conservative investigator on his team. Ok, now Try your best to spin this one, I promise as much as I can to hold from bursting its laughter.

"How many conservatives are on Mueller’s team out of 22?"

You have to love these fair-weather "Americans." The entire system is rigged unless it is doing what they want. The FBI agents cannot execute their duties under the Constitution with impartiality unless they are vociferous conservatives. Next, the trumpettes would demand that any agents involved in investigations undergo racial purity screening to ensure that none of them have Mexican ancestary because anyone in anyway connected to Mexico is not allowed to sit in judgment of the Annointed, self-proclaimed genius.

Nice spin, nice speech, but that’s not the same fairness talk that was going on when Bill Clinton was being investigated. The Democrats didn’t like the investigation one bit and tried everything to get Ken Starr off Clinton’s back, the anger, hatred and scorning the man received from Dems was of deep anger and frustration. Now we have another investigation going on with a Republican President and we need to wait it out and shouldn’t disturb Mueller, he’s a patriot and a good man. But now Sessions is trying to reopen the investigation of Hillary to see whether there was pay for play going on in the Uranium One Deal and once again the Democrats are angry and don’t want it done. Democrats are hypocrites pure and simple. Investigate as much as you like and all day as you like,it’s a Democrat, wait, this is. Absurd, nothing to see here, how dare you and the spin continues from them. Amazing.

we need the Saudis, ....... when I paint on my canvas, oil does come in handy.

You use fossil-fuel-based paints? Not linseed oil, or other crop-based oils, like every other artist does?

if Kim makes one wrong move or even blink, that country will cease to exist.

You say this as if it's normal. You seriously believe a blink by one man is justification for destroying a country?

He is indeed a funny man

You've got him beat every which way, bass.

Mueller, he’s a patriot and a good man

I hope you'll stick by that opinion when he lays out all the dirt against the Trump team.

So you have no specific evidence of any of these guys doing their job improperly?

So if you call that booming, I hate to see what a failing economy looks like. well Trumps only into the 1st year, if you think this boom will somehow continue his entire presidency then you know something most stock brokers dont. Trumps tax cut wont be sustainable indefinitely, actually its not even sustainable now and is expected to add another $trillion to the deficit that Trump said hed fix.

Why isn’t there a single conservative investigator on his team. Ok, now Try your best to spin this one, I promise as much as I can to hold from bursting its laughter. so your basically saying the FBI isnt an professional independent investigating organisation, but political bias with an agenda. IF you can say yes to that then every other US government organisation is politically corrupted also, except when its full of Republicans!? It wouldn't matter if Mueller and his team were all Republicans, their professionalism and the law should make them follow the evidence to its conclusion whether it shows Trumps illegal doings or not. Any other political agenda by them to manipulate the investigation away from the truth will also find them in prison also.

I saw the press conference where Tango Man said:

"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart," said Trump, a former reality TV star and developer.

"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!"

I nearly wet myself laughing... seriously, what is wrong with this joke of a president? Theresa May, my country's PM, comes out with rubbish fairly regularly (she's not a great public speaker) but it's nothing even remotely this insane.
