The Trump IQ problem
It’s notable that there was virtually nobody defending the President’s alleged intelligence following Tillerson’s trustworthy appraisal. Nevertheless, Trump himself lastly addressed it in an interview with Forbes Journal, saying:
“I feel it’s pretend information, but when he did that, I assume we’ll have to match IQ checks. And I can inform you who’s going to win.”
This may not precisely be an epic contest of wits. Trump has demonstrated repeatedly that he’s woefully disadvantaged within the smarts division. He has the vocabulary of a 3rd grader and can’t appear to retain or comprehend easy information. An IQ check would resolve this controversy within the “actuality present” method that Trump is accustomed to. And it might give Tillerson a chance to show that Trump’s insult to his intelligence was pretend information. By no means thoughts that Trump has beforehand demeaned Tillerson by stating that his diplomatic efforts have been a “waste of time.”
The moron chickens out
Sadly, the large competitors has already been referred to as off. Press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was requested concerning the occasion on the White Home press briefing. She suggested that the President simply “made a joke, nothing greater than that.” He by no means meant to tackle Tillerson. Which is a disgrace as a result of the Mensa Institute had provided to sponsor the occasion.
Had this match gone on it will have been one other fiasco for Trump. He has lately been squabbling with the Republican chair of the Senate Overseas Relations Committee, Bob Corker. Corker expressed concern that the White Home was on the verge of chaos. Trump replied with a flurry of livid tweets. However Corker had the final phrase when he tweeted again saying:
It is a disgrace the White Home has grow to be an grownup day care middle. Somebody clearly missed their shift this morning.

He stated that Trump’s conduct “involved” him and that he feared the President was placing the nation “on the trail to World Warfare III.” He additionally made notice of Trump’s tendency to lie, saying “I don’t know why the president tweets out issues that aren’t true.” And he implied that he was not alone in harboring these considerations. “I do know for a reality,” Corker stated, “that each single day on the White Home, it’s a state of affairs of making an attempt to include him.”
