06 Jan President Trump says he is fit for office and proclaims he is ‘a very stable genius’
President Donald Trump on Saturday in a series of tweets proclaimed not only that he is fit to carry out his duties but also a genius, “and a very stable genius at that.”
“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 lapdogs the Fake News Mainstream Media are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence,” Trump tweeted.
“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!”
Trump was reacting to a book that went on sale Friday describing the first year of his White House administration as being chaotic, with virtually every West Wing staffer questioning the president’s fitness for office. Among the sources for revelations in the Michael Wolff book “Fire and Fury” was former top aide Steve Bannon, who Trump has turned on. Text of President Donald Trump’s statement on Steve Bannon. He fired back at both again early Saturday.
“Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book. He used Sloppy Steve Bannon who cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad!,” Trump tweeted.
Trump also used Twitter Saturday to crow about Friday’s U.S. jobs numbers, pointing especially to African American unemployment, which fell to a 45-year low of 6.8% in the December data.Economy seen on steady growth path despite ‘disappointing’ December jobs number
