How fortunate to have a 'Stable Genius' president
The American people should be thankful that Donald Trump is president. Not only is he a great leader, but also an amazing teacher. On Jan. 22 he single-handedly corrected decades of history and science textbooks and other sources of factual information by telling us during an interview that we must protect our geniuses, such as Elon Musk and Thomas Edison.
I'm sure that my textbooks and teachers from Harbor School and Bulkeley Junior High in the late 1950s and early 1960s stated that Thomas Edison died in 1931 and, consequently, neither he nor his inventions need protection. Thanks for the correction, President Stable Genius.
As for protecting Elon Musk − who the president eloquently observed "does good at rockets" − I've been worried about his safety for years and I'm glad the stable geniusis going to get the government to help him.
I was also taught in the obviously inadequate public schools of New London that the wheel was invented in about 3,500 B.C. in what is now Iraq by an unknown person or persons. But, no, the stable genius implied in the interview that it was invented in the United States. Who knew but the stable genius?
