Self-professed “genius” and all around good guy President Trump is such a poor communicator that he is last on a list of the last 15 presidents compiled by Factbase. Trump is the worst communicator since Truman. It is potentially the least surprising news in the world for those who have been “treated” to one of his rambling monologues.
Analysis of 30,000 words spoken by the president reveal that Trump’s speech was equivalent to a fourth-grader. Of course, to those of us who have had to listen to his unintelligible rambling, we may think that even that is generous. It is so far unknown how the egomaniacal president will react, but if one thing is likely, it’s that it will not be very well communicated.
The president has never been rated highly for his speech. He has a tendency to repeat and contradict himself several times in almost any conversation. His speech is almost as well regarded as his ability to take insults. It is surely only a matter of time until the thin-skinned one takes to Twitter to bemoan his fate once more. Predictably the report is “fake news” and he will urge his supporters or “base” to look at different sources to try and misdirect them once again.
Renowned for his glass ego, Trump has been active on Twitter in the last few days to lash out at a devastating book about his presidency. Trump reminded people on the social media platform that he was elected “on my first try.” Clearly, Trump was forgetting about his brief run 18 years ago.
“I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!” He also tweeted that “throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart.”
….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…..

Commentators around the world have been quick to blast Trump for his “stable genius” remark which has offered them no end to their punchlines.
