That’s been my take as well. I’d be willing to accept him as a genius if someone could show me how. They use his excuses for his behavior as justifications for his actions but none of this sells me on the idea that he’s a genius.
I’ve said it many times: I’ll buy your product/service/ideology if you successfully me sell me on it. I’ll listen (until my BS detectors can’t take anymore). But nobody’s successfully sold me on him yet. I usually end up being called a few names at the end.
