In the early hours of Saturday morning, Trump took to Twitter to defend his mental capacity in a series of tweets where he unironically referred to himself as a "stable genius."

The tweet flurry seemed to be in response to some of the bonkers revelations from Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff's brand new tell-all book detailing Trump's time in the White House. While people have certainly questioned Trump's mental capacities before the book was released on Friday, its release has spurred a new line of questioning around the president's mental health and stability.

The book itself takes cues about the current administration and Trump himself through the accounts of several White House members, all of whom portray Trump as erratic and unstable.

In an attempt to aggressively defend the honor of his own mental stability, Trump posted a series of tweets this morning dispelling doubts about his cognitive health.

As you can imagine, people on Twitter had a lot to say about Trump's aggressive and seemingly unhinged defense of his own mental capacities.

It's safe to say that Trump's flock of defensive tweets did far from prove his point about stability to much of the public.
