I ask this question in a genuine manner, becuase the prevailing consensus from a whole bunch of educated thoughtful people is that former United States President Donald J. Trump is not “smart” concerning so many matters.  But, like it or not, Trump, you, and I have some things in common.  We are all human beings.  And as a member of the human brethern, we do have strengths and weaknesses, to be sure. It’s not that Trump is stupid or smart.  It’s more like his stupidity and smartness is amplified in a way that outshines any of a mere mortal’s assets and liabilities so much more.  To coin a well worn phrase, Trump’s outlandish and boorish personality is much larger than life.
