Trump Tantrum: If Tillerson Called Me a Moron, We Can Compare IQ Tests and ‘I Can Tell You Who Is Going to Win’
Is the president supposed to act like an egotistical child throwing a temper tantrum? This is just sad. Trump put Tillerson in power.
Trump was asked about Tillerson referring to him as a moron in an interview with Forbes and this was his response:
CNN – President Donald Trump, scorned by reports that Rex Tillerson called him a “moron” earlier this year, told Forbes in an interview released Tuesday that he has a higher IQ than his secretary of state.
The comment underscores the volatility between the two men after multiple reports that their relationship has frayed over the secretary of state’s comment. Trump and Tillerson, along with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, will have lunch together at the White House on Tuesday afternoon.
“I think it’s fake news, but if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests,” Trump said. “And I can tell you who is going to win.”
Trump was aware before the report earlier this month that Tillerson had referred to him as a “moron” at the Pentagon this summer, a source familiar with the conversation told CNN, but it’s unclear whether Trump discussed the remark with Tillerson. Trump was not present at the Pentagon meeting where the comment was made.
Trump and his administration have looked to discredit the initial NBC report, despite the fact that other outlets have since confirmed Tillerson made the comment.
LOL! Trump always has to defend himself by asserting how much more “awesome” he is.
… I think this ‘moron’ insult will continue to eat at Trump until he finally gets rid of Tillerson. In my opinion his days are now numbered.
