Stepehen King is conducting an unusual IQ Test for Trump on Twitter
Donald Trump once again bragged about his IQ in front of the media and humiltaed himself! he said in a Forbes interview published Tuesday that he would win against Secretary of State Rex Tillerson if they compared IQ scores. Trump made the comment after dismissing reports that Tillerson called him “a moron” this summer. “I think it’s fake news, but if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win,” said the president.
NBC News first reported last Wednesday that Tillerson called Trump “a moron” following a July Pentagon meeting. The president, who three days earlier had tweeted criticism of Tillerson’s approach to North Korea, slammed NBC News and the report on Twitter. In a press conference, Tillerson denied that he planned to resign as secretary of state but shied away from denying using the word “moron” to describe Trump. A spokeswoman for Tillerson subsequently denied the claims.
Internet is celebrating the IQ jab of President Donald Trump, many people and personalities have expressed their opinion through hilarious tweets. In the morning former Mexican President has conducted an online IQ test for Donald Trump on Twitter now Stephen King has come up with a new idea.
He tweeted “Molly, aka the Thing of Evil, says she’s ready to test her IQ against Trump’s. “Bring him on,” she says.”

CNN’s Chris Cillizza, like Benen, points out that Trump has a habit of highlighting his IQ scores. “This is hardly the first time that Trump has cited his reportedly sky-high IQ – and the relatively low IQs of his political rivals – to make a point or win an argument. In fact, it’s one of his favorite pieces of rhetoric,” Cillizza notes before listing 22 examples of Trump citing his IQ.
Philip Bump of The Washington Post finds that Trump once again defaulted to his “point of security” when talking to Forbes. “Trump uses his IQ like he uses his net worth: It’s always higher than you might assume and there’s no way to ever pin it down,” argues Bump.
Hot Air’s Allahpundit imagines a situation in which Trump and Tillerson compete in a televised IQ competition that would result in the loser resigning. He suggests, “Tillerson would find it beneath both his personal dignity and the dignity of the presidency – but he’d sign on too, as it’d be a perfect opportunity for him to exit the administration. All he’d have to do is take a dive.” Back in reality, Allahpundit says that Tillerson should resign at his Tuesday lunch with the president.
