People who are geniuses do not normally go around telling people how smart they are. Yet, our braggart president has always been fond of patting himself on the head and saying “really smart.” Donald Trump has been an embarrassment throughout his campaign, but he managed to humiliate himself even further on the world stage.
During his impromptu press conference after the NATO summit, the Donald reminded the world that he was a “very stable genius:”
‘Asked if his comments at NATO will change once he leaves Brussels and starts tweeting again, President Trump says no and he’s a “very stable genius.”‘

A reporter asked him if he planned to tweet once he was in the air on Air Force One. He responded:
‘No, that’s other people that do that. I don’t. I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.’
The tweeter-in-chief told the crowd that he had forced the other NATO members to “substantially up” the amount of money they spent on their defense. Awkward for him, foreign leaders immediately contradicted him.
Early this year, people were questioning Trump’s fitness for office. He responded saying he was “like, really smart,” according to The Washington Post:
‘Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart.’
Then, the commander-in-chief could barely contain his excitement about seeing his role model, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
The Twitter world went nuts. Check out some of our favorite tweets below:
