Donald Trump Claims He’s a “Stable Genius” Amid Mounting Questions About Mental Health
Washington, January 9 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter to defend his mental health, as an explosive new tell-all book portraying Trump as unfit for the presidency sold out from coast to coast after going on sale over the weekend.
The publisher, Henry Holt, is rushing to print more copies of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” by journalist Michael Wolff. The book has been number one on the Amazon best-sellers list since Wednesday last week, when excerpts of the book were published online. In these excerpts, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is quoted portraying his former boss as wholly unprepared for the presidency, accusing Donald Trump Jr. of “treason,” and predicting Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation will find evidence of money laundering.
Bannon has since tried to walk back his comments, claiming his treason comments were a reference to Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, not Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr. Bannon also says he has unwavering support for the president. Late last week, President Trump tried frantically and unsuccessfully to stop the publication of the book, with his lawyers sending cease and desist letters to Bannon, author Michael Wolff and publisher Henry Holt.
But after failing to stop the book’s publication and distribution, President Trump took to Twitter to try to defend his mental health, tweeting: “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!”
