This is kinda borrowed from another comment by Tech Geek:

Boris is smart but wants people to think that he is dumb
Trump is dumb but wants people to think that he is smart

The difference between Boris and Trump is that Boris has a dumb/eccentric persona, but is smarter than people realise, and has a way with people. He has managed to avoid getting backstabbed, and while he is being laughed at he (1) became the first conservative lord mayor of London and then (2) became Prime Minister.
Trump however, isn't pretending to be dumb, he actually is.

"Boris is a moral windsock"

Nailed it.

Author — Yes, I agree


Boris is actually quite intelligent though everything he does is calculated, Trump is straight-up unintelligent. (Not a Boris fan)

Imagine playing a sport that involves kicking a BALL with your FOOT and not call it FOOTBALL but play a sport where you carry an oddly shaped EGG with your HANDS and call it football...
