Though it may sound like something you’d read in The Onion, President Trump is now saying that if Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him a moron, an IQ test would provide evidence he isn’t.
The thin-skinned man-child president told Forbes in an interview that Tillerson never used the “M” word to describe him, but then seemed to suggest he might have after all:
“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.”
As if Trump could even hope to win an intelligence standoff with a brain-damaged fruit bat.
Later in the same chat with Forbes, Trump also attempted to take credit for the accomplishments of his predecessor, Barack Obama:
“I am having fun. I’m enjoying it. We’re accomplishing a lot. Your stock market is at an all-time high.
“Your jobs, your unemployment is at the lowest point in almost 17 years. We have fantastic numbers coming out.”
Uh, you haven’t even passed your first budget yet, Donnie, so don’t break your arm patting yourself on the back. You inherited a strong economy.
While he was only to happy to claim credit for the economy, Trump blamed any problems with Obamacare on the former president:
“It’s a total mess. What we’re doing is trying to keep it afloat, because it’s failing. I mean the insurance companies are fleeing and have fled. They fled before I got here. But with that being said, no, Obamacare is Obama’s fault. It’s nobody else’s fault.”
Nothing is ever Trump’s fault. He may brag that he likes to grab women by the genitals and kiss them against their will, but that’s not his fault.
Someone as delusional as Donald Trump should not have the power to launch nuclear weapons. He’s barely competent enough to use a damn cell phone.
