As you can see from the Tweet storm above (read in reverse order for full effect), President Trump this weekend declared himself a “very stable genius.”
Which I’m sure settles the matter in his mind. In my mind, I’m thinking: “Who does that?” Doesn’t the mere fact that he’s saying he’s both stable and a genius in pretty much tell us exactly the opposite?
I sure think so.
One of my favorite food guys, Anthony Bourdain, put it this way:
He’s right. Think about your friends. If one of them said they were a stable genius and didn’t seem to be kidding, wouldn’t your reaction be along these lines?
Now picture Eisenhower. Or Jefferson. Or, heck, even this guy (bonus points to those of you who can guess which prez this is):
Wouldn’t one of those guys declaring himself a “stable genius” pretty much scare the snot out of you, especially considering Trump can do this:
Yeah. Me, too.
(That was Taft, btw. But then I’m sure you knew that.)
