WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday rejected an author’s accusations that he is mentally unfit for office and said his business career and election victory showed he is “a very stable genius.”

Michael Wolff, who was granted unusually wide access to the White House during much of Trump’s first year, has said in promoting his book that Trump is unfit for the presidency. He told BBC Radio in an interview broadcast on Saturday that his book is creating “the perception and the understanding that will finally end … this presidency.”

Trump battled back in a series of extraordinary morning posts on Twitter, which appeared to catch some in his inner…

  1. Typical arrogant denials. The tRump administration thinks just because they say something we the people must believe them and agree with it. They are wrong. Hugs

      Yes. Trump’s life has consisted of surrounding himself with people who he felt looked up to him. “Yes” men and women. His retaliatory character of making personal attacks and denigration of others prevented them from telling him the truth. When he feels someone is not in agreement with him, he comes on like a used car salesman and because they walk away rather than argue, he deceives himself to think he is being honest.

      That might have carried over well for him in his personal and business life, but not when he is the leader of the United States.

  2. When I read the quote from T this morning, I just shook my head in wonder. When I read your post, the other meaning of the word “stable” came to mind. Perhaps compared to a chicken, cow or sheep he’s a genius? No, animals seem to have much more sense…

      There’s something very telling about Trump’s statement in his defense. He is conveying that only when he is in a decision making position do those under his authority think he is “smart”. He wants loyalty, not because he has the best interests of the people, but because they are suppose to advance his personal best interests.

        Mz. Xena, This dishonest fool we have allowed to defile the White House is under the impression that because he signs the checks (but does not do that now) that people must be loyal to him! He fails to understand that you can not buy loyalty and any loyalty that a person gives him disappears as soon as the person no longer is under his thumb!
        Did you ever give any thought as to what would happen if some of the settlements that he has made (especially the ones involving sexual accusations) were to be unsealed?

          What you say, I agree with, and will add that his skin isn’t thick enough to be in any position that can be criticized.

          I truly don’t know if unsealing the settlements would persuade his die-hard supporters. Truly, what I see about them is that they only support Trump as the person who beat Obama, although Obama was not and could not run for a third term. They’re using comparisons in a very unfair and prejudicial manner because they do not compare the fixes that Obama did to the harms caused by the Bush administration.

  3. During the campaign, Jesse Ventura supported Trump. He is not speaking out against the wall, and against the violation of state rights pertaining to legalizing marijuana.

  4. ‘Stable Genius’. A legend in his own mind is what he is.

    While listening to him speak today about our Libel laws I was thinking ‘be careful what you wish for’ because no one tells more untruths than he does.
