Left-leaning Twitter erupted on Saturday after President Donald Trump defended his “mental stability” and called himself “not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!”

The memes came fast and furious, with everything from Wile E. Coyote to SpongeBob Squarepants to broom-pushing horses (“stable geniuses” — get it?) quickly tossed into the internet mix.

“Trump is the college applicant who is trying to convince the admissions board that he is a genius, but they know he is reading below grade level and is failing math,” tweeted one commenter.

Trump launched his Twitter storm on Saturday to defend his mental capacity and fitness for office in the wake of questions raised by senior White House officials in Michael Wolff’s explosive new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

“Throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” Trump wrote.

“I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star …to President of the United States (on my first try),” he wrote, neglecting to mention his short-lived bid for the presidential nomination of the Reform Party in 2000. “I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!”

Here’s a sampling of the internet’s reaction:
