Democratic Lawmaker To Introduce The ‘Stable Genius Act’ And Require Candidates To Take Mental Exams


Since the primaries for the 2016 presidential election, enemies of President Donald J. Trump have attempted a longstanding smear campaign by referring to the national leader as “ignorant,” “dim-witted,” and just plain “stupid.” However, no legitimate person of power has put forth legislation that would regulate the ability of mentally-deficient presidential candidates in the future. That is, until now. 

In a duo of tweets on Saturday morning, Trump shared the following with the entire digital world: 

“Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and t heir lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming metal stability and intelligence…
“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!

Whether or not the President’s claims of stability and ingenuity are self-evident or entirely lacking, there is certainly something amusing at place, as one man has decided to follow up on the tweet. Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA), a Democratic lawmaker, announced that he would introduce the “Stable Genius Act” in the House on January 9, 2018. The act would force presidential candidates to file a Federal Election Commission (FEC) report, “certifying that he or she has undergone medical examination by the medical office under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Navy.”

While in reality, the legislation appears to be perfectly reasonable, it is humorous when one acknowledges its origin: in a tweet from  Donald J. Trump. Would the presiding President of the United States pass such an exam? According to him, he is more than capable of doing so. But what are your thoughts?
