Both includes Trump being a genius. He knows some things, but is very limited in his abilities and cannot learn anything.

At first figured his personality flaws were somehow quaint cute in the crazy weird uncle way to his supporters. That was the root of his popularity. Still might be.
Do know it is evident their is a percentage of around 30% ignorant enough to believe him to be the savior returned.

He's as ignorant and boorish as the cultists who are devoted to him. That's what they like about him.

Neither, he's a vindictive intuitive demagogue motivated by flattery powered narcissism.
His success says much of his supporters' non-existent ethical standards and ethno/egocentric world construct.

I think that we should not use the word "genius" in the context with Trump. Not even ironically.

Remember genius people:

Edison
Bach
Leonardo

et. al.

As much as I disdain Trump, there's no getting around he's very good at some things.

1. Generating fear.
2. Solidifying a base.
3. Leveraging that.

But I don't know if that makes him a genius?
