Congressman Just Introduced ‘The STABLE GENIUS Act’

In a statement that clearly proved the opposite, Republican President Donald Trump recently declared about himself that he is a “very stable genius.”

In a move aimed at preventing people as mentally unfit as 71-year-old Donald Trump from ever assuming the presidency in the future, a Democratic Congressman introduced the “STABLE GENIUS Act.”

In a tweet so ridiculous it would not have been believable had Trump not written it himself, President Trump defended his mental competence by posting, “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!”

This infamous tweet inspired Rep. Brendan Boyle of Pennsylvania to craft and propose the Standardizing Testing and Accountability Before Large Elections Giving Electors Necessary Information for Unobstructed Selection (STABLE GENIUS) Act. Boyle introduced it by stating, “The President believes he is a ‘stable genius.’ I do not. President Trump’s reckless, erratic behavior has exposed a critical flaw in our existing election process. Before voting for the highest office in the land, Americans have a right to know whether an individual has the physical and mental fitness to serve as President of the United States. While it is necessary to take the current President’s concerning behavior seriously and I support legislation to address these ongoing concerns, I believe we must also be proactive and do all we can to ensure a situation like this does not arise again.” The Democrat continued, “My legislation provides a much needed safeguard to ensure that future presidential candidates meet the basic standards of a proper, uniform medical examination, and that this information is available to the American public before voting for the Office of the Presidency. While President Trump apparently considers himself a ‘stable genius,’ the American people deserve a thorough, standardized procedure to allow a medical professional to determine this.” Do you support the STABLE GENIUS Act?
