Donald Trump Saturday morning turned to his latest propaganda tool — Twitter — to proclaim he’s not only “stable” but is a self-declared “genius.”

Under fire from aides, mental health professionals and critics for what many see as signs of mental illness and instability, Trump had to use three “tweets’ to bypass the service’s limits to claim:

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 lap dogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming 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…..

….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!

That’s the claim by a president who has been caught in more than 2,000 lies in his first year in office, according to fact-checking services.

Brandy X. Lee, forensic physicist at the Yale School of Medicine and editor of The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President, thinks Trump’s latest claims create more reason for concern.

“The level of concern by the public is now enormous,” Dr. Lee says.  “They’re telling us to speak more loudly and clearly and not to stop until something is done because they are terrified.”

A dozen members of Congress invited Dr. Lee to Capitol Hill last month concerns from the mental health community about Trump’s stability.

She has more meetings scheduled.

  1. It’s hilarious and sad at the same time. Shakespearian and Mel Brooks at the same time. Like a Richard II always plotting revenge against those who would challenge his royal prerogative.

  2. Actually, we’re still working on that Russian collusion thing. Has not been proven either way (except for Mr. Papadopoulos who pled guilty…) What has been studied to death and found nothing was alleged ‘massive voter fraud’ (nope, the only frauds were the ones at the polling places illegally turning voters away) and Hillary Clinton’s emails (nothing significant found, and she had nothing to do with the tragedy in Benghazi). Somehow I didn’t hear much about getting ‘over’ those (even though the commission has quietly disbanded, mostly because it was getting sued out of its pants).

    And Ronald Reagan was no great brain either. Alzheimer’s disease had eaten him by the end of his Presidency, and before then was best known for “Bedtime for Bonzo”.

    Actually, it seems that Republican Presidents haven’t been known for being really bright for some time. Gerald Ford, anyone? George “Dubya” Bush ‘went with his gut’ because he didn’t have anything else to make decisions with. George H.W. Bush, however, I’d agree was very smart – and very nasty. One doesn’t get to be Director of the CIA without a heaping dose of both. Richard Nixon could be argued was from the same mold.
