Trump Directly Responds to Questions About His Mental Health

In a wide-ranging and unexpected Twitter rant on Saturday morning, Trump rejected claims that he is mentally unstable and therefore unfit to serve as president.

Trump’s mental condition has come into question again following the publication of Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury,” in which the author notes that everyone around Trump has concerns about his intelligence and stability.

Trump’s response? Well that he’s “a very stable genius” of course.

“Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” Trump tweeted.

Trump railed against the ongoing FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion on the part of the Trump campaign, calling it a hoax by the Democrats and the media. He then bragged about his rise to president.

“Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames,” Trump tweeted. “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!”

However, despite Trump’s Twitter tirades, more than 50 Democrats supported a bill to remove Trump from office if a psychiatrist deemed him unfit to serve, and more than a dozen lawmakers from both parties listened to a briefing on Trump’s mental health from a Yale University psychiatrist who published a book on the president’s mental health.

“We write as mental health professionals who have been deeply concerned about Donald Trump’s psychological aberrations. We believe that he is now further unraveling in ways that contribute to his belligerent nuclear threats” the psychiatrist said in a statement signed my more than 100 mental health professionals.

Trump also tweeted on Saturday morning about positive jobs numbers that came out yesterday and criticized an ABC reporter who has just returned from a month-long suspension over publishing a report on the Trump administration that contained major errors.
