MSNBC Panel Bursts Into Laughter At Donald's 'Extremely Stable Genius' Claim

While trumpeting his tariffs and lauding the farmers for their "patriotism," Trump volunteered that he was really an "extremely stable genius." Yes, he really did!

During a staged press opportunity to watch Donald Trump crow about his tariffs and pretend he cares about farmers, he took a moment to dump on Speaker Nancy Pelosi and stroke his own ego.

Unprompted, Trump said, "I haven't changed very much. I've been very consistent. I'm an extremely stable genius."

This was said in the context of an also-unprompted slam on Pelosi, where he called her a "mess," a quote MSNBC's Kelly O'Donnell was anxious to send out to her devotees on Twitter and which Pelosi jumped on immediately:

When the “extremely stable genius” starts acting more presidential, I’ll be happy to work with him on infrastructure, trade and other issues.

Speaker Pelosi knows where all the soft spots are, and she's jabbing them, like she did earlier when she suggested his family and staff stage an intervention.


At any rate, watch the entire panel laugh their collective butts off before Eugene Robinson observes rather drily that anyone who declares themselves a "stable genius" is certainly not one.

It wasn't just the MSNBC panel either. Twitter really enjoyed the fun:

I don't throw the term emasculation around much but that is *exactly* what Pelosi does to Trump. She's got his balls in a vice and this is the second time she's gone and crushed them, and he's squealing like a stuck pig.

Spoiler: he is neither stable nor genius

And the toady from Louisiana:

Responding to the president calling himself “an extremely stable genius,” Sen. John Kennedy told me that Trump “very well may be” a genius. He said Trump is “very, very smart”

It's just fascinating to watch Pelosi push him closer and closer to a full meltdown. For the first time in 2 years, I want to pop some popcorn. Unsalted, of course.

Ed. note: A previous version of this story erroneously identified Eugene Robinson as Eugene Scott. We regret the error.
