Trump touts his 'consensual' presidency

Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence.....

....Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star.....

....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!

________________________________________________

US President Donald Trump has deleted a Tweet citing his "consensual presidency" after the typo was caught by the Twittersphere.

Trump initially misquoted conservative columnist Michael Goodwin with two tweets citing Goodwin as saying:

"'His is turning out to be an enormously consensual presidency. So much so that ... there has never been a day that I wished Hillary Clinton were President. Not one. Indeed, as Trump's accomplishments accumulate, the mere thought of Clinton in the W.H., doubling down on Obama's ... failed policies, washes away any doubts that America made the right choice. This was truly a change election, and the changes Trump is bringing are far-reaching and necessary.' Thank you Michael Goodwin! (Please read entire column) mgoodwin@nypost.com"

On his second attempt, the President replaced "consensual" with Goodwin's actual adjective -- "consequential" -- and included the columnist's reference to Trump's "missteps."

"His is turning out to be an enormously consequential presidency. So much so that, despite my own frustration over his missteps, there has never been a day when I wished Hillary Clinton were president. Not one. Indeed, as Trump's accomplishments accumulate, the mere thought of...

Indeed, as Trump's accomplishments accumulate, the mere thought of ... Clinton in the WH, doubling down on Barack Obama's failed policies, washes away any doubts that America made the right choice. This was truly a change election -- and the changes Trump is bringing are far-reaching & necessary.' Thank you Michael Goodwin!"

Goodwin appears to have retweeted Trump's initial post, thanking the President on his Twitter feed above a box that Sunday night read, "This tweet is unavailable,' before retweeting Trump's replacement version.

Others on Twitter denied that they had "consented" to Trump's leadership and a number included the hashtag #StableGenius when commenting on Trump's typo -- referring to the President's series of weekend tweets proclaiming his sanity.

Citing his unlikely trajectory from businessman to reality television star to US president, Trump wrote: "I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!"

The thing is that everything he writes has a possible double meaning of which he is obviously unaware. "Stable genius" makes sense if he means that if he were transformed into a horse he might be welcome in a stable. It is also ironic because the New York Military Academy in my home town from which he dubiously graduated has a horse brigade which was traditionally an attraction for many potential students. (I do not know if Trump himself was part of that, but if he can handle horses that is just another point of jokery against him.) Then don't get me started on the permutations available with regard to any ignorant use of the term "consensual."

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

Wonder if his base would forgive him if when he meets up with Mueller he got Mueller out on 5th ave and took out a pistol and shot him. Regards, Len :(

Cognitive decline, rather than ignorance, might better explain Trump's frequent word garbling. His physician might be able to identify it this Friday even without a psychiatric or neurological evaluation, especially if he is on the alert.
