Trump brings greatest genius on the planet and his brilliant wife to White House, to help him run the country

President Donald Trump is known for his intuitive, even instinctual, grasp of complex problems and their solutions. While it took him months to select a secretary of state and to fill other key cabinet positions, he was led by blinding instinctual insight to choose two of his most important and intimate advisers.

While others might have taken months or even years to find the most brilliant man on the planet and his brilliant wife, Trump through his extraordinary power of intuition found the genius and the genius’ wife in almost no time at all.

He put the young man quickly to work, meeting with the Russian ambassador and even a high-level Russian banking official, all before Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was confirmed. Even after Tillerson was sworn in, there was little need for haste in filling out the upper echelons of the State Department, or the Pentagon, as the young genius had everything under control.

Trump came to rely heavily on the young genius, particularly after his National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, was chased from  office because he told a little lie to Vice President Michael Pence, who took the whole thing very seriously.  Unjust, the president thought. For telling a little lie to Pence. Flynn had not lied to the young genius or to him.

The greatest thing about the young genius was his brilliant wife, who was not only beautiful and charming, but also seemed to have her finger on the pulse of the younger and more normal poeople who made up such a large percentage of the electorate.

The young genius was charged with solving the Arab-Israeli and Middle East problems, general tutelage in the area of foreign policy, and now—one of the president’s most brilliant ideas—leading government reform by applying principles from private business to the government of the country.

The president, himself from the world of business, had been absolutely amazed to hear from his advisers that this new concept had never been tried before.

As for the wife of the young genius, the president was delighted to use her on any and every problem where he needed advice. The genius and his brilliant wife were particularly useful to the president in mediating between the various power centers which had grown up, almost like mushrooms, in the corridors  of power leading to the Oval Office.

When outsiders called the president’s attention to the fact that the young genius was his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his brilliant wife the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, the president shrugged his shoulders and simply observed, “Sometimes genius and brilliance surprise you, and turn out to be closer than you would ever think.”
