  1. seems the more that american media try to leverage a narrative about the president being what they want, the less credible their entire significance to be taken seriously by the public becomes. this was obviously a political condition prior to the president ever being enthusiastically elected for all the right reasons he is correctly administrating by executive office, but its counter effect compounds when they begin to frenzy with their unelected opinions. its more than institutional insecurity and corrupt democrat disgrace, but its also not a climate this president cant constructively confront in more unconventional ways. in basic format theyre still dr ford trying to subvert the law, but if the democrat press can be helped more by the public also, they might gain a bit of stability.

  2. More propaganda from Democrat owned CBS … in case you haven't noticed, the US has been shattering economic records over and over again… all thanks to Donald Trump and Republicans.

  3. "'A Very Stable Genius' portrays President Trump as dangerously uninformed." – right, right, so exactly like he portrays himself every time he opens his mouth…or tweets…or does anything, really…

  4. Let's see, when trumpy first came into office what did they criticize him about ?, he doesn't read the Intel reports, watch's T.V. shows like Hannity and listens to Limbaugh, and goes by his gut "shoot from the hip"… It turns out to be true…

  5. If Trump is so dangerous, why is the economy doing well, our enemies fear us, many are rising our of poverty, and economic pacts like NAFTA have been overturned? If that's dangerous, then bring more of it on. This woman is a sweet sounding, smooth talking looney.

  6. Maybe Trump being uninformed is a good thing. Probably why he gets so much done as opposed to those that drag their feet all day year after year playing politics on Capitol Hill .Trump has shown what he can do by what he has done. He has done at least half of what he promised when campaigning. Hooe he gets 4 more years.

  7. So the Resist movement said in the New York Times they are actively flouting Trump's agenda and Carol Leonnig blames the chaos thus created on Trump. Can someone explain that one to me?

  8. John Kelly should have told Trump that Pearl Harbor was in 1741 when many clams throughout the world's oceans rose up against America, invaded America's harbors, and demanded reparations and all of their pearls back from the jewelry of American women. The war was long and bloody, but, in the end, America beat back the clams and kept its pearls. This was also how America invented New England clam chowder.

  9. PS..Susan Gordan former security specialist, Asst Director of National Security council was responsible for briefing The Don daily. Her recent interview was all telling. She resigned in August. She had briefed President Obama as well.
    We lost another powerful and smart public servant.

  10. everybody getting rich quick off Trump, media ratings thru the roof, books & newspapers flying off the shelves, you would think they would love the guy for keeping their pockets fat

  11. Lol this is hilarious. Trump plays dumb to throw off his enemies. Then the enemies (purported geniuses) come in and show us their hand, further defeating themselves. These "geniuses" need to read the 48 laws of power.
