Trump Refutes Claims of Mental Instability by Saying 'I'm a Very Stable Genius'
In a series of tweets, Donald Trump addressed the recent claims by psychiatrists that he is mentally unfit for office.
Well, Trump's enemies asked for it and they got it.
Trump followed up this morning by meeting with reporters.
"I went to the best colleges, or college," he told reporters. "I had a situation where I was a very excellent student, came out and made billions and billions of dollars, became one of the top business people, went to television and for 10 years was a tremendous success, as you probably have heard, ran for President one time and won. Then I hear this guy that doesn't know me at all, by the way, didn't interview me, said he interviewed me for three hours in the White House. Didn't exist, it's in his imagination."
Trump continued: "I never interviewed with him in the White House at all; he was never in the Oval Office."
Wolff told "Today" show host Savannah Guthrie on Friday that he "absolutely spoke to the President" while working on "Fire and Fury."
"Whether he realized it was an interview or not, I don't know, but it certainly was not off the record," Wolff said. "I've spent about three hours with the President over the course of the campaign, and in the White House. So, my window into Donald Trump is pretty significant."
The remarkable spectacle of Trump defending his mental stability comes after the President and some of his top officials spent the last few days countering claims in author Michael Wolff's new book, "Fire and Fury," about Trump's mental fitness to serve as President. The book, which went on sale Friday, also paints the picture of a President who neither knows nor cares about policy and doesn't seem to perceive the vast responsibilities of his role.
CNN has not independently confirmed all of Wolff's assertions.
What is so fabulously disconnected from reality about the entire "Trump is a loon" meme being advanced is that the Democrats are tripping over the criticism of Trump they've employed since he was elected.
Is Trump an evil Hitleresque mastermind who colluded with Russia — just like Hitler colluded with Russia! — or is he a demented old man who didn’t even want to win the election and was surprised when he did?
Colluding with Russia because he didn't want to win the election would be evidence of mental unfitness for the office. It's crazy, but at this point, it may be all the Democrats have.
