In recent days, the newly-released book “Fire and Fury” has stirred much controversy and driven an even deeper wedge between the political parties of our country. The details in the book present President Trump in a negative light, but several members of the Trump administration have assured that the majority of the “facts” in the book are completely false.
According to The Citizen, the book questions Trump’s mental fitness. On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump took to social media to defend his mental stability and called himself a “genius.”
Trump stated, “Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart...I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star, to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!”

Many people appeared to have an issue with Trump’s remarks. One well-known name who spoke out against Trump was country music star Tyler Hubbard—one half of the popular duo, "Florida Georgia Line."
Hubbard (right), who just welcomed his first child in December, posted a screenshot of Trump’s tweets and asked his followers, “Anybody got any good advice on explaining to your child the state of our country in which she was born into?”
He added several hashtags that said “sad,” “scary,” and “needing prayer.” He has since deleted the Instagram post, but the comment and link are still available on his Twitter account as of Monday morning.
It is assumed that Hubbard potentially deleted the post after he faced backlash from fans. One user stated that the country singer was disrespecting our country and she even threw out all of his CDs. Others insisted that he should stay out of politics.
