Washington, DC, United States (4E) - Donald Trump defended his fitness for office in the wake of the personally demeaning allegations against him in the book, "Fire and Fury," by praising himself so maniacally as to confirm the book's diagnosis of his psychosis.
Trump's tweets over the weekend described himself as "a very stable genius" and "like, really smart," a childish reaction to the book by Michael Wolff that's now the number one on Amazon's bestseller list.
Trump began his day on June 6 with a series of provocative and unhinged tweets that extolled himself as a genius. The first tweet read:
"....Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. 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...."
He followed this up with:
"....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!"
Later that day at Camp David, the media confronted him about the bizarre tweets.
"This morning you were tweeting about your mental state," said one reporter. "Why did you feel the need to tweet about that this morning?"
"Well, only because I went to the best colleges, or college," replied Trump.
"I had a situation where I was a very excellent student, came out, made billions and billions of dollars, became one of the top business people, went to television and for 10 years was a tremendous success, as you probably have heard."
Trump then launched an attack at author, Michael Wolff, whose book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," which was released Jan. 5, or four days ahead of schedule because of public clamor to read the tell-all book that confirms Trump's insanity.
When asked about the book itself, Trump said, "I consider it a work of fiction and I consider it a disgrace."
Wolff said he's heard from sources in the White House Trump is "bouncing off the walls" with anger over the book.
"I hear that the president is very angry, or, let me be precise: I hear that he is truly bouncing off the walls," said Wolff.
