Lieu: 'People who are geniuses don't go around saying they are'

Lieu: 'People who are geniuses don't go around saying they are'
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) responded on Saturday to President Trump's claim that he's a "very stable genius," arguing that people who are, in fact, genius don't feel the need to boast about it.
"Human experience tells us that people who are geniuses don't go around saying they are geniuses," Lieu wrote on Twitter. "Same also applies to people who are very stable."In a series of tweets on Saturday, Trump lashed out at critics who have raised questions about his mental health, saying that he's not only "really smart," but a "very stable genius."
"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” he wrote in one tweet. 
The tweet came after the release of a new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by New York media writer Michael Wolff, which includes provocative and unflattering claims about the president, including doubts among Trump’s senior aides about his mental fitness for office.

  1. The problem with this ..."Human experience tells us that people who are geniuses don't go around saying they are geniuses," ...is that Trump doesn't/didn't go around saying he was a genuis.

    What happened is the media were attacking him (as usual) and calling him stupid and unintelligent (not to mention other foul things)....so he replied, as any genius would have, by stating that he is in fact a genius!

    So this story is just more fake news!

    1. Correct. While I agree with the statement that genius rarely identify themselves as geniuses, its clear Trump was doing what he does best, trolling the easily triggered.
