Donald Trump Just Reiterated That He’s A ‘Very Stable Genius’ At The NATO Summit

At the NATO summit in Brussels, President Donald Trump took the mic and did what Donald Trump does best. He spoke highly of himself and deflected a rather valid inquiry.

While in front of an audience of people that aren’t his constituents, Trump received a question from a reporter about whether or not the message he was touting at the summit would change once he was back on familiar ground.

“We understand your message, but some people ask themselves, ‘will you be tweeting differently once you board Air Force One,’” the Croatian reporter asked, with good reason.

According to Trump, however, “No, that’s other people that do that. I don’t. I’m very consistent.” 

Then, he followed up with a statement he’s confidently made in the past. “I’m a very stable genius.”

Cue a collective groan from the United States and a hope that he would follow it up with a real answer. Spoiler alert: he didn’t. He just moved on to the next question.

This isn’t the first time Trump was bold enough to call himself a “stable genius.” In January, while responding to accusations of Russian collusion in the 2016 election, Trump boasted about his “two greatest assets” and that he “would qualify as not smart, but genius.”

There was much to say about his NATO summit comments, and you can better the people of Twitter put it all out there.

One user even resurfaced an old Far Side image that fits all too well. 

Another user recalls the G7 summit in June, where Trump did the exact thing that he said he doesn’t do because he’s a “stable genius.”

While Trump’s statement turned heads, the most notable soundbite of the Summit came from European Council Donald Tusk, who addressed Trump about the nation’s complete lack of allies. “Dear America, appreciate your allies. After all, you don’t have that many,” Tusk said in his statement to Trump.

If that isn’t a message Trump will ignore or critique at some point, then we’re not sure what is.
