It’s kind of amazing how many of those urging Twitter to ban President Trump from tweeting are the same ones who feel obligated to reply to each and every one of his tweets. They could just unfollow, but we suppose they consider it monitoring the enemy’s movements or something.
On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted that his career accomplishments might qualify him as a genius, and of course that tweet managed to preoccupy the media/Democrats and celebrities all day long. Here’s Rep. Ted Lieu:
Human experience tells us that people who are geniuses don't go around saying they are geniuses. Same also applies to people who are very stable.

Writer Stephen King didn’t tag Trump in his tweet saying essentially the same thing as Lieu, but the inspiration is obvious.
Anyone who has to call himself a genius…isn’t.

“Dilbert” creator Scott Adams thinks he caught King in one of Trump’s many Twitter traps.

Adams certainly isn’t wrong — it’s all people can talk about, and this is after the mainstream media devoted most of the week to suggesting Trump was mentally unfit to serve after his “nuclear button” tweet.
It’s really is a trap: he tweets, and they’re helpless to ignore it.
Exactly. This is the most entertaining thing ever. https://t.co/GOujp4umFs

Maybe he's just honestly assessing himself https://t.co/EY7zFWAghh

Guys who bring massive, positive change can call themselves whatever they care to call themselves, as far as I'm concerned.

Yes. It's very clever indeed, and @StephenKing was the first dumb carp to rise to the bait. Thanks, Scott.

Yep … all we’ll be seeing all day, even from the haters, are the words “Trump” and “genius.”
I'd say psyop successful. pic.twitter.com/ksiuIV6Glq

That certainly managed to change the headlines from, “Democrats question if Trump mentally fit to serve.”

Sometimes, the best response is no response, and they will never learn. LOL
