President Donald Trump woke up early Saturday morning to boast about his intelligence and mental stability -- which naturally set off another round of social media mockery.
The president of the United States was apparently reacting to a scathing new book by Michael Wolff chronicling White House chaos.
“Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart," Trump tweeted. "Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star”
“I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!” he added.
Other Twitter users were astonished and horrified.
