Trump eats McDonald’s so he won’t get poisoned: book
By Ruth Brown

President Trump doesn’t just eschew the White House’s gourmet kitchen for McDonald’s because he prefers fast food — he’s also paranoid about being poisoned, according to a new book.

“[Trump] had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s — nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” writes Michael Wolff in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” out Jan. 9.

The notoriously germaphobic president also forbids White House staff from touching his belongings — especially his toothbrush — and from changing his bedding until he’s stripped the sheets himself, according to the tome.

Housekeepers once picked up his shirt from the floor of his private bedroom — Melania has her own — and he blew his top, Wolff writes.

“If my shirt is on the floor, it’s because I want it on the floor,” Trump berated the staff.

Trump’s Mickey D’s order is “two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted,” former aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie wrote in their own recent book.

Trump: I’m ‘Like, Really Smart,’ a ‘Very Stable Genius’
The president hits back against concerns about his “mental stability.”

President Trump boasted of his “two greatest assets” on Twitter early Saturday, saying he is known for his “mental stability” and “being, like, really smart.” The president began his early-morning tweet storm by slamming the “fake news mainstream media” for scrutinizing his “mental stability and intelligence.” “I went from VERY successful businessman to top TV 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!” The president’s self affirmations appear to be in response to Michael Wolff’s upcoming book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Citing White House insiders and Trump aides, the book paints a picture of utter dysfunction under Trump, who is said to alarm some aides with habits described in the book as signs of low intelligence and mental instability.

Trump defends mental health: I'm a 'stable genius'

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/06/trump-wolff-mental-health-327116

Politico
The president takes to Twitter to condemn speculation over his wellbeing
and governing style in wake of Wolff book release
.
By ANDREW RESTUCCIA and CRAIG HOWIE
Updated01/06/2018 11:09 AM EST

Enraged by widespread speculation about his mental state and fitness for
office, President Donald Trump defended himself on Twitter Saturday
morning as "very smart" and "a stable genius" amid allegations contained
in an incendiary book about the Trump administration released this week.

Questions about the president's mental health had for months been
relegated to the sidelines of the country's political debate. But a
damning new book by journalist Michael Wolff has thrust the issue into the
mainstream, forcing White House aides to address it head-on in television
interviews and at the daily press briefing.

Even Fox News, the conservative news channel and the president's most
vocal media cheerleader, has started to acknowledge the questions about
the president's state of mind, running a segment early Saturday morning
titled, "Media questions Trump's mental state."

Trump unleashed his Twitter rant just minutes after the Fox segment,
further elevating the issue and ensuring that the topic gets more
attention than ever, even as the White House tries to focus on crafting a
legislative agenda.

“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.....”
the president tweeted at 7:19 a.m., hours before a scheduled meeting with
congressional GOP leaders at Camp David.

Several minutes later, Trump added: “...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!

Although Trump seemed to imply that the questions about Reagan's health
were political smears, Reagan died of complications related to Alzheimer's
disease and there is speculation that that its early stages could have
afflicted him in office. Reagan's son, Ron, wrote in 2011 that he noticed
"something was amiss" with his father while he was still in the White
House, and even some Reagan aides contemplated the possibility of invoking
the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which allows for the removal of a
president who shows a lack of competency.

Four of Reagan’s doctors, however, told the New York Times in 1997 that
they never detected signs of Alzheimer’s or other mental illness during
his presidency.

Trump is scheduled to undergo his annual physical exam on Jan. 12. The
White House aides have not said whether the exam will include mental
acuity tests.

Trump had spent much of Friday attacking Wolff, whose book “Fire and
Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” has captivated Washington. In a
late Friday night tweet, Trump branded the author a “total loser" who
had written a "really boring and untruthful book."

Wolff’s book, which has sold out in bookstores across the country, has
rocked the Trump White House with its portrait of Trump as possessing a
child-like attention span, unwilling or unable to process written
information and presiding over a West Wing staff that ridicules and
derides him.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said the book is
ridden with falsehoods and is “complete fantasy and just full of tabloid
gossip.” Wolff said Friday that he stands by his reporting.

The book has also plunged the president into a public feud with his former
top strategic adviser and campaign chief Steve Bannon. The president, who
is known for his colorful sobriquets when targeting foes, labelled Bannon
"Sloppy Steve" in multiple tweeets since the book's release. Late on
Friday, Trump tweeted that Bannon "cried" when he was fired, and "begged
like a dog" to keep his job, having previously tweeted that Bannon had
"lost his mind."

Bannon, a firebrand conservative with his own following on the hard right,
has since been disowned by prominent backers and Republican donors,
including the Mercer family, which issued an unusual public statement
cutting ties with him Thursday.

Trump is meeting with Republican Party leaders at Camp David over the
weekend to plot strategy for the 2018 midterm elections. House Speaker
Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, among others, will
deliver presentations on the party's path forward in an electoral
landscape where the president's controversial actions and public
statements loom large.

Trump began tweeting at 6:49 a.m. Saturday by touting the statistic
contained in Friday’s jobs report that African American unemployment had
fallen to 6.8 percent, which the president said made him “so happy.”

He followed that eight minutes later with a tweet attacking ABC reporter
Brian Ross, who misreported in December that Trump’s fired National
Security Adviser Michael Flynn had sought meetings with Russian officials
before the election (it was later revealed to be early in the transition):

“Brian Ross, the reporter who made a fraudulent live newscast about me
that drove the Stock Market down 350 points (billions of dollars), was
suspended for a month but is now back at ABC NEWS in a lower capacity. He
is no longer allowed to report on Trump. Should have been fired!”

ABC news apologized for the report and suspended Ross. It was reported
Friday that Ross has been demoted on his return to the network.

'Genius' Trump speaks at fourth-grade level
The current commander-in-chief has the worst vocabulary of any modern president, according to an new analysis.
Nina Burleigh, Newsweek•January 8, 2018

President Donald Trump—who boasted over the weekend that his success in life was a result of “being, like, really smart”—communicates at the lowest grade level of the last 15 presidents, according to a new analysis of the speech patterns of presidents going back to Herbert Hoover.

[Couldn't copy the chart]

The analysis assessed the first 30,000 words each president spoke in office, and ranked them on the Flesch-Kincaid grade level scale and more than two dozen other common tests analyzing English-language difficulty levels. Trump clocked in around mid-fourth grade, the worst since Harry Truman, who spoke at nearly a sixth-grade level.

At the top of the list were Hoover and Jimmy Carter, who were basically at an 11th-grade level, and President Barack Obama, in third place with a high ninth-grade level of communicating with the American people.

The Flesch-Kincaid scale was developed in 1975 for the U.S. Navy to assess the relative difficulty of training manuals biased on word length and sentence length. A database of Trump’s words, compiled by the incomparable factba.se, ran the comparative analysis yesterday, in response to the president’s claim that he is “a genius.”

Trump has been swinging back hard against on the record allegations in Michael Wolff's bombshell new book that members of his own team called him “dumb” and “a dope.”

In a Saturday-morning tweet, Trump reminded people that he was elected to the presidency “on my first try.”

“I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!” He also tweeted hat “throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart."


In comments at Camp David later, he added that he was “a very excellent student” and “came out and made billions and billions of dollars ... ran for president one time and won.”

Factba.se has collected interviews, speeches and press conferences from previous presidents, using material publicly available from presidential libraries, and including the University of California, Santa Barbara’s American Presidency Project, which contains presidential press conferences going back to Hoover in 1929.

The website excluded communiques issued by the last two presidents on social media and limited the study to unscripted words uttered at press conferences and other public appearances.

Very Happy Trump must speak at this level. He's talking to politicians.

Good point.

Though some politicians are smarter than others. Like in Animal Farm, "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others." shameless grin
