How smart is Trump? Although his genius as a huckster is unquestioned
skepticism in all other spheres is warranted, given that
he has aggressively suppressed information about his academic record
(even while calling on his opponents to release theirs) and never
addressed the considerable evidence that paints him as deeply unlearned
To some extent, however, the question of his intelligence does not matter
because his overpowering, pathological focus on self steers his
decision-making far more than intelligence.
