Was Trump an idiot before he started watching Fox News?

I listened to an interview with Daniel Dennett yesterday in which he quipped that the answer to all chicken and egg questions is 'Yes'. 

Ho ho. It's an explanatory dodge of enormous utility that I recall from my years as a history undergraduate.

In Dennett's case it allows him to slip Darwinian selection into almost any process he cares to. Just don't let the man anywhere near the French Revolution.
