Howard Kurtz of Fox News Media Buzz said he had to “rip up the show” based on new tweets by President Trump. This shows Trump’s ability to turn around and dominate the news cycle.
….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!

Trump’s tweet that he is a genius has been reported all weekend and will go into next week. So now when you think President Donald Trump, you think “genius” because of his ability to link that word with him. The discussion is whether or not he is a genius, it’s not whether or not all these other things that were swirling around last week. He was able to change the narrative by applying a nickname to himself, essentially.
I was on Media Buzz to discuss this and other issues. Segment about Trump’s twitter genius starts at 11:37.
