Trump Boasts About His ‘Unparalleled Intellect’. Immediately Gets Torched
Just when you thought president Trump would be done with nonsensical remarks for the day, he blurs out another ludicrous claim: “I’m a very intelligent person,” Trump said Wednesday, citing his Ivy League education as proof he’s a civil person.
Asked by MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson whether he should behave as a more civil leader, the president took the opportunity to brag about his about his unparalleled intellect, touting his “Ivy League education” as proof he’s a civil person, and blaming the media for their “lack of understanding.”
“I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am,” Trump said. “You know people don’t understand. I went to an Ivy League college. I was a nice student, I did very well.”
“I’m a very intelligent person,” he continued. “I really believe, I think the press creates a different image of Donald Trump than the real person.”
As expected, the Internet had to issue a response, and people didn’t hold back.

Wait, #MAGA alert! An Ivy League college, you say? I thought that makes him one of the dreaded “East Coast Elite”, who I’ve been told are “as bad as ISIS.” I guess that’s any Ivy Leaguer who’s not him, then? https://t.co/tXtabiX55D

And an elitist Ivy League College, nor a good education is relevant in any way to civility https://t.co/qZEYEyQGio

There a lot of stupid MFers who went to Ivy League and got there off the backs of legacy and money contributions.

Attending an Ivy League school does not make you smart. See also: the president's son-in-law. https://t.co/0B5Js5MCDi
