“On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump characterized himself as a “very stable genius” who is “like, really smart” in a series of tweets fired off from the Camp David presidential countryside retreat, where he was supposed to be meeting with lawmakers about 2018 priorities such as infrastructure, the budget, and health care.
Apparently reacting to a new round of questions surrounding his mental health, the president used Twitter to defend himself in the weekend’s early morning hours. The tweets seemed to be spurred by a Fox News segment.
On Friday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders fielded questions about suggestions that Trump might be mentally unfit to serve as president; she characterized them as “disgraceful and laughable.”
Later that evening, the president tweeted from Camp David, calling the author of a new book about him a “total loser” and describing a former top adviser’s firing as being “dumped like a dog.” By Saturday morning, still at Camp David, Trump was having a field day online; he fired off several tweets about his mental stability. (He also tweeted about the unemployment rate and an ABC News reporter suspended by the network over a reporting error.)”
