President Trump has said that he is "like, really smart."

This reminds me of a question I sometimes ask people.

If, given the choice, would you rather be smart or wise?

OK, I admit this is a trick question.

If you are "like, really smart" (you know lots of "stuff"), but you are not wise, what good is that?

On the other hand, how can you be wise if you don't know "stuff" (or enough of the right "stuff")?

Yes, I guess a person could be both, but we don't seem to elect them.
