The problem is that Trump thinks everyone is stupid. He believes, “with great surety” that he is the smartest guy in the world. And he points to the fact he is President to prove it.

During a discussion on how to cover Trump, the former New York Observer editor, Elizabeth Spiers, claimed she told Kushner that she had serious problems with Trump’s repeated claims that Obama was not born in the U.S., to which Kushner allegedly told her: “He doesn’t really believe it, Elizabeth. He just knows Republicans are stupid and they’ll buy it.”
