“I must tell you that Mr. Trump is a man to whose utterances no attention should be paid. He is to all intents and purposes half-witted. Life in resorts, with its lack of intellectual stimulus, has caused his natural feebleness of mind to reach a stage which borders closely on insanity. His relatives look on him as virtually an imbecile and have, in my opinion, every cause to do so.”

(P.G. Wodehouse wrote most of these words in 1929 in his novel “Summer Lightning.”)
