Before he left the NATO summit in Brussels for a planned stop in Great Britain, President Donald Trump decided to hold an impromptu press conference. When it was over with, White House staffers were probably wishing the president had skipped the presser and boarded for Air Force One instead.

At the press conference, a reporter asked Trump if perhaps he was planning to say nice things about NATO and then say the opposite on Twitter once he had left:

“We understand your message, but some people ask themselves, will you be tweeting differently once you board the Air Force One?”

Trump’s reply will likely make you laugh and roll your eyes simultaneously:

“That’s other people that do that. I don’t. I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.”

….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!

This isn’t the first time Trump has used the “stable genius” line. In January, he tweeted out:

Asked about his upcoming summit in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump suggested the Russian dictator isn’t his friend or his enemy, but a “competitor,” adding:

“He’s representing Russia. I’m representing the United States. So, in a sense, we’re competitors. Not a question of friend or enemies. He’s not my enemy, and hopefully someday, maybe he’ll be a friend. It could happen, BUT I just don’t know him very well.”

It remains to be seen if Trump will give Putin everything the Russian leader wants, including an end to punitive American sanctions which were imposed last year in response to the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election.
