John Fugelsang Pulverizes Trump With One Perfect Tweet

Twitter explodes with hilarity and condemnation in the wake of Trump’s latest Twitter tantrum, with John Fugelsang leading the charge.

All hell has broken out this week in the wake of the publication of Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

Questions regarding Trump’s mental health quickly emerged as news reports started quoting excerpts from the book.

Trump took to his Twitter on Saturday morning, posting a 3-part series of tweets addressing those concerns and defending his intellect.

“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,” Trump began.

He concluded, tweeting: “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.”

Apparently not yet satisfied, NBC News reported that: “Trump on Saturday cited his resume and success as both a television personality and a businessman as proof that he is — and always has been — in great mental health.”

Speaking at a wide-ranging, impromptu audience with reporters, Trump said he felt compelled to fire off several tweets defending his mental state after the publication of Michael Wolff’s tell-all book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

Asked why he posted that Saturday morning Twitter tantrum, Trump responded:

Only because I went to one of the best colleges. I was an excellent student, came out, made billions of dollars, became one of the top business people, went to television, and for 10 years was a tremendous success, as you have heard, ran for president one time and won. and I hear this guy who does not know me at all, by the way, did not interview me — he said he interviewed me for three hours in the white house, it is in his imagination, and what I was heartened by because I talk about fake news media, is really the fact that so many of the people that I talk about in terms of fake news actually came to the defense of this great administration, and even myself because they know the author and they know he is a fraud. when I saw some of the people say, and do look at some of his past books, able on Rupert Murdoch — a terrible expose and falls, so much false — I consider it a work of fiction, and I think it is a disgrace someone is able to do something like that, the libel laws are weak in this country. it a were strong, it would be very helpful and you would not have insight that happen where you can say whatever comes to your head. just so you know, I never interviewed with him in the white house at all. he was never in the oval office. we did not have an interview. I did a quick interview with him a long time ago having to do with an article, but I do not know this man. I guess sloppy Steve brought him into the white house quite a bit, and that is like sloppy Steve is now looking for a job. who else?

However, it was actor, writer, radio and television personality, and political satirist, John Fugelsang who came up with the perfect response to that Twitter melt-down.

“Today POUTUS angrily denied having dementia by comparing himself to a POTUS also accused of dementia
who turned out to have actually had dementia #stablegenius,” Fugelsang tweeted.

Other celebrities were quick to respond as well — such as horror writer Stephen King, who frequently takes to Twitter to ridicule Trump.

“Anyone who has to call himself a genius…isn’t,” he tweeted.

Filmmaker Rob Reiner and actress-singer Bette Midler each tweeted jokes about donkeys along with actor Kal Penn who served as Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement for President Obama.

Actor Albert Brooks tweeted that the 25th Amendment “literally jumped out of the Constitution,” in response to Trump’s online tantrum:
