Trump’s ‘genius’–most evident when he’s ‘mouthing off?

President’s ‘due process’ remark must be taken seriously

“I went from VERY successful businessman, to top TV star…to president of the United States (on my first try),” Mr. Trump said, referring to his “Apprentice” TV show and his real-estate empire. “I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius…and a very stable genius at that!” (“Trump…says he’s a very ‘stable genius'”)

“You have to do something very decisive. Number one, you can take the guns away immediately from people that you can adjudge easily are mentally ill, like this guy.

[I]t takes so long to go to court to get the due process procedures. I like taking the guns early…. So, you could do exactly what you’re saying, but take the guns first, go through due process second.” (President Trump during White House meeting on gun- control policy with congressional leaders.)
