Tale Weaver — Genius or Idiot?

B6D26D41-911E-4D97-A338-FA419FF4705AThis week the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver prompt asks us to “consider the notion of what constitutes a genius and how different are they from a person who might be considered an idiot.”

What immediately came to mind to me was how Donald Trump calls himself a “stable genius” when, in fact, he is neither stable nor a genius. What he actually is is a delusional, unhinged idiot.

So in Donald Trump’s case, what are sometimes thought to be polar opposites — genius and idiot — are both rolled up into one man.

Wait! I take that back. There’s no genius involved. Trump is a combination of con man and idiot.

Need I say more?

    I read an article a day or two ago pertaining to things John Cleese (of Monty Python fame — a couple of articles after all) has said. One thing was that he’d have thought Trump would appreciate being called an idiot (a compliment or upgrade considering how he acts).

    Narcissistic is how I describe him, not an idiot, and as such extremely dangerous.
    Everything gets turned around as a personal attack on him by his famed ‘false news’.
    Add his unfettered personal attacks on many?
    Is this at all presidential?

    You’ve only got to have a wander through the foreign press to see the same thing being said again and again.
    His ‘policies’ are ill thought out, his word (and therefore America’s word) cannot be trusted.

    IMHO he is degrading the US’s standing.in the world.

    I’ve got “Wile E Coyote, super genius.” going though my head … he’s that kind of genius, maybe one that doesn’t think things through.
