    In the midst of the Golden Globes, as celebrities strolled the red carpet, smiling for the paparazzi, it felt like outside the confines of Tinseltown the world was boiling. Iran had struck an American air base in Iraq, Donald Trump was twittering away stirring the pot, and Australia was feeling the brunt of decades of disastrous climate change decisions.

    On this week’s episode of Inside the Hive, Vanity Fair special correspondent Gabriel Sherman, who was attending the Globes for his show, The Loudest Voice, relayed a story that sums up the Trump presidency and the mess we’re currently living in. Standing near the bar, Sherman ran into Frank Luntz, the Republican pollster, and the two started chatting. Sherman asked Luntz when he last saw the President. “Last week, at the White House Christmas party,” Luntz said. Sherman asked what the two men talked about, to which Luntz replied that he had asked Trump what his middle initial “J” stands for. “Genius,” Trump responded....

    Despite Luntz’s clarification that his oft-repeated comment about Trump’s middle name being “Genius” was a joke, no corrections have been issued. Vanity Fair’s article, podcast, and Sherman’s and Bilton‘s tweets remain online.

    This is not news. Donald Trump has always been an egomaniac and on the cusp of megalomania. That said, he knows the difference between a "G" and a "J". It was Donald being Donald.

    PS
    You risk a summary ban for calling Trump a ra***t. Never use that word

    Yeah, well the Dems thought that a joke by Frank Luntz was real news so there is no summary ban for laughing at the Dems, although it becomes a health issue if you can't stop.

    While I wouldn't put it past Trump to make a sly comment like that, the article indicates he did not, rather it was a joke that had been told and understood as such for years before this true 'jenius' Gabriel Sherman decided it was true.
    From the article...

    Shortly after Frank Luntz, the purported source for the story, got wind of the claims in the Vanity Fair article and podcast, he responded in a tweet of his own on Saturday at 11:30 A.M. E.T.:

    I’ve been telling this joke at parties for years, and @GabrielSherman is the first person to think it was real. That’s what happens when the media wants to spin anything as “Orange Man bad!”

    Gonna be a long 5 more years…
