MONTAGE: When Trump Brags About His IQ [VIDEO]

This morning Trump challenged Rex Tillerson to an “IQ test” and guaranteed that he would be the winner. Later in the day White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders essentially told reporters that they are too fucking stupid to know that Trump was joking.

However, as the montage broadcast this afternoon by CNN demonstrates, Trump is as obsessed with bragging about his alleged intellect as he is with bragging about everything else. Therefore, we all know he’s lying. Watch below.

            You see, I suppose that I’m kind of your old-fashioned, sit on the porch, and drink a nice glass of lemonade sort of Queer. So for me, well, I prefer the term “whore” or nothing at all. It rolls of the tongue, the w has a silent mystique, and it has that certain auditory quality.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          ;p; lol me

        It’s exactly as true as Trump’s claims. Probably by about the same percentage, too. Hint: Trump is a moron.
        I’ll provide pictures when Donny provides evidence of his high IQ.

      If Sarah Huckabee was being eaten alive by boll weevils I’d feel sorry for the weevils.

    • Mark Née Fuzz

      I dont care whose daughter she is. She’s a big, fat liar without an ounce of integrity and therefore to be despised regardless of parentage.

      • AJ Drew

        Yeah, I usually hate the whole “apple/tree” thing, but in this case… errrmmmm…

    • another_steve

      Sarah Huckabee turned me gay.

  • paganguy

    I guess that means he’s not going to take Mensa up on their offer. Pity.

    • NZArtist

      Mensa is a bunch of pretentious wankers.

      • paganguy

        The only person I know who joined is, but I wouldn’t presume to say all. But my comment was based on this:

        http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/354718-mensa-offers-to-host-iq-test-for-trump-and-tillerson

      • Their IQ test is also garbage, sold to the gullible who want their egos fluffed.

        • AJ Drew

          OH yeah? Well, back in the day, “Who’s Who” invited ME lots, and I mean LOTS of times to be included in their index of important people… and if wasn’t for that absurdly large fee they wanted, I would SO be in those books.

        • NZArtist

          It’s a good test of who is good at doing pattern-recognition tests under certain conditions….

      • JWC

        I once went to a psychologist and took a battery of tests. When I was finished and we reviewed the results he had 2 questions to ask me 1) Why was I in the job that I had and 2) Would I consider joining Mensa the answer 1) the job was fun 2) an answer much like yours

      • Friday

        This is largely true but they can go ahead and be pretentious at Trump. 🙂

    • DonnaLee

      I’d like to see someone shame him into taking one. He wants to talk about his uncle’s intelligence…and that means he comes from smart genes. I’d like to see him given several tests….and the results put online!

      • UrsusArctos

        I’d settle for a basic psych panel followed by treatment in an isolated safe environment. Never hearing a peep/tweet from 45* would be great.

  • Jim Maloney

    That’s “Breaking News”? Sad.

  • lymis

    It’s unfair to say that just because he keeps repeating it that it’s not a joke.

    His intellect IS a joke.

    Everything about Trump is a joke.

        • David Walker

          It’s a show I heard about but knew nothing about. Now I think the Pottstown Community Theater should stage it.

    • I’ll say this much: That ‘fucking moron’ comment from Tillerson really, really got under his tissue-thin skin.

      I’ve a feeling that “you’re a goddamned idiot” was one of Donald’s father’s favorite go-to insults for him.

      • Todd20036

        Have to agree with daddy on that one, but dad’s no prize, either.

  • Lakeview Bob

    Anybody’s hemorrhoid has a higher IQ than the Furor. And you can believe me when I say that.

  • The dementia might be new, but he’s been an Aryan-style eugenicist his entire life. He truly believes his genes are superior to just everyone else’s.

    And his dad was arrested while ‘berobed’ at an illegal Klan rally in NY.

    In any case, he’s always bragged about his supposedly genius-level mind, often employing the vocabulary of a language-challenged child. He claims to have graduated at the top of his business class at Wharton. However his academic records tell another story, and acquaintances recall him as being a sub-average student who argued with his teachers.

      • Steverino

        I like to refer to gay conservatives as bitched, buggered, and befuddled.

        • Todd20036

          I’ve never knowingly buggered a gay conservative.

          • Prost Seattle

          • Todd20036

            Hence the qualifier, “knowingly”

          • Steverino

            Good. You have kept yourself pure.

    • vorpal 😼

      His median sentence length is about three words, with one of them referring to himself: hardly on par with genius-level.

      • Todd20036

        I’ve never heard him use vocabulary words that befit even a high school freshman

      • Chris Baker

        People with high IQs rarely go around announcing it. Unless they have some sort of social disorder where they don’t understand it’s not polite to brag about oneself.

        I seriously believe that Trump is more than just a narcissistic a-hole. He seems to have some sort of disorder where he doesn’t understand what’s appropriate and what’s inappropriate. (I am not a doctor, but my brother has Aspergers, so I have a lifetime of watching someone who doesn’t ‘get’ social norms and boundaries. And my brother does have an IQ of 120, so he is above average IQ, but he’s a bit of an oddball and I certainly would not want him having control over any part of anyone’s life.)

        “I’m a very smart guy. I have a beautiful wife. I am a very rich guy. I am a great businessman.” Normal people don’t need to go around reminding everyone about these things.

        • Todd20036

          Especially when Trump’s wife is an illegal alien made out of silicone and wouldn’t know a moral if it fell on her and offered her dinner, Trump inherited his wealth – he didn’t earn it from scratch, he’s such a crappy businessman that if he left his money in stock funds he’d be a wealthier man today, and he’s so insecure that he needs positive reinforcement from complete strangers.

          In other words, Trump knows, deep down, he’s an idiot fraud despite his upbringing, and it maddens him

        • vorpal 😼

          It’s really a classic case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, from what I’ve seen. People with NPD feel the need to go around telling everyone how great they are all the time, and they have huge egos, but those egos are incredibly fragile and susceptible to criticism, which is exactly what we’ve seen with thin-skinned Trump.

          I know some genuinely intelligent people who do feel the need to go around broadcasting their intelligence instead of letting it speak for itself. It’s extremely socially awkward and usually rather pathetic.

          I think sometimes that Trump is one tiny insult away from declaring all-out war.

    • Gerald Parks

    People who are truly smart don’t tell people how smart they are.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      People who are truly “big” rarely talk about size, either.

      • Robincho

        They don’t have to…

        • Todd20036

          Obama didn’t have to convince people he was smart by saying so.

          And the only one who would care about his “size” is Michelle. Given how happy she is to be around him, I’d say whatever Obama’s endowment is, it’s enough for Michelle.

          And that is all that is important.

    If you want to shut up someone who is typical of Trump’s base, ask them what is Mensa. They’ll eventually call you a libtard and walk away.

    • Steverino

      Or they will say it has something to do with “that time of the month.”

      • Oh honey, you are giving them WAY too much credit. Just how many of them would even be remotely familiar with the word “menses” ? If anything they’d probably assume that “mensa” is some kind of furrin gobbledegook.

      CNN has a good piece today: eleven of the best Trump insults from a new Eminem song. Here’s a sample:

      “1) ‘A kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust’

      Here’s the full verse: “We better give Obama props ’cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust while the drama pops, and he waits for s— to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around till the bombing stops.”

      Here, Eminem is likely referencing Trump’s war of words on social media with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, whom the President referred to as “little rocket man.””

      I love how CNN explains the lines afterward, because it’s rap and naturally hard for regular people to understand.

    • grindstone

      This is some evil shit right here. Hillary should shut up, shut up, go away….why hasn’t she denounced Weinstein????

      Uhhh, because it has nothing to do with her? CNN basically just shot at her feet and said, “dance, bitch”.

  • Henry Auvil

    Remember how many times Barack Obama bragged about his intellect? Me neither. I just enjoyed the eight years when he displayed it daily.

    • AJ Drew

      And, I feel it must be said… remember how many times Barack Obama’s (and his wife’s and his family’s) honor, intellect, and truly their “equality” were attacked, but he NEVER rejoined with sophomoric barbs, insults, or juvenile challenges (ahem, in current parlance, “jokes.”) Never.

      The idea he and Michelle would have sent Malia to intern for someone they knew was a predator sickens me.
      And yet people still push that absurd line.
      When people say everyone knew, no they don’t.

      • Lazycrockett

        But I highly doubt that Malia as an intern had any interaction with Weinstein.

      • AJ Drew

        How do you know the Obama’s knew about Weinstein’s abusive history?

        • AJ Drew

          Right or wrong, it’s optics, though, and having been POTUS he coulda, shoulda, woulda known? So, Ninja’s comment that “he’ll still get torn to shred” does apply, though I’m with you about disagreeing that they actually somehow truly knew.

    Boasting about IQ means you don’t understand what IQ actually measures or how little it correlates with other evidences of intelligence. It’s a sure sign of the Dunning-Kruger effect in action. Score whatever on the test, but if you have to brag about you’re obviously a socially inept fool.

    • Treant

      This. I’ve tested with an IQ that’s through the friggin’ roof. But frankly, I never really use any of it if it’s even there. I’ve always tested well and, barring time to do the math, my intuition serves me well enough to pick an answer out of four possible selections.

    • Michael R

      • AJ Drew

        And more to the point, a low-IQ person considered a useful idiot by outside influences might, um, become POTUS.

    • AJ Drew

      EO’s are tricky, legally, though, and in this era of Corporations are People (and good gawd, my mortgage company has renamed itself “Mr Cooper” but that’s another topic,) it depends on if anyone wants to enforce DT’s EO’s or not. We’ll see.

      • JAKvirginia

        EO’s generally apply only to Fed employees. They’re not law. Obama had some shot down by the SCOTUS for overreach. if the ACA (law) covers pre-ex, his EO don’t mean shit. And he would be undermining a law and that gets into high crimes and misdemeanor territory.

    Hey Sarah, next time you visit daddy you should ask him about how your god feels about lying.

    Seems like there’s something REALLY IMPORTANT in the book about it. Not that I’d know anything about that – just 30 years of my life in a cult that makes you look progressive 😛

    • andrew

      The Judeo-Christian god drowned almost every living animal and human on the planet, slaughtered the first born of every family in Egypt, told his followers to kill all the living things in many of the cities that they captured, ordered the execution of all who worked on the Sabbath, committed adultery, practiced sorcery, cursed their parents or worshiped mythological gods besides him etc etc. I don’t think that lying would bother such an amoral mythological creature.

      • Treant

          • Treant

            That’s not sorcery, that’s just a little Druidic magic. Trivial in terms of blood requirements, really, although the patterning of oak and elm, holly and yew, alder and ash…that’s a bit more trying…

          • Furface

            I stand corrected, good sir. May y’all have many more seasons honing your druidic skills and sharing the beautiful results with us.

  • Ninja0980

    Let’s be blunt here.. we all know that behind the scenes, if you are a woman, POC or LGBT, Hollywood has NEVER been as liberal as people think it is.
    I had a friend who wanted to go to Hollywood and be the next star but was told by someone he would have to lose his boyfriend (now hubby) and keep his sexuality under wraps or he would never get work.
    On Hawaii Five-O this past year, two of the main characters who were Asian left the show when it became clear they would be lowballed compared to their white co-stars.
    Could go on and on but to put it bluntly, Hollywood’s chickens are coming home to roost and in some ways it’s deserved.
    Can’t call out Trump and others if they don’t clean their house too.

    • Lazycrockett

      If you watched Rachel the only reason Weinstein is going down is because he is no longer seen as a Top Player in Hollywood. This isn’t going to stop the casting couch.

        • Adam King

          I do, and they are.

          • BeaverTales

            The score only matters in primary school, while there’s still time to shuttle you into a smaller special class that supposedly maximizes your potential. That privilege typically applies whether you are at the thin part on the left or right, actually.

            Once you hit high school, you have to hide any score outside the first standard deviation or risk “social suicide”.

        • Treant

          Maybe they’re throwing it intentionally to protest Trump? Or in the hopes that he’ll fly off the handle, visit Trinidad, and get sucked dry by vampire bats.

And at the moment I’m not breathing through my nose so well as there’s about the same amount of swelling inside. 🙂

    It’s minor, and he did say it’d be up and down for a week, but I can still pass air more easily than I did before the surgery and I’m in, effectively, absolutely no pain.

    Oh my – the Weinstein (Trump) types don’t just pick on lil’ cute girls for their dominance games – check out the thread on Terry Crews’s Twit page – for those who don’t know, Terry is a large, buff, handsome, accomplished black man – President Camacho, ffs! – and yet this was done to HIM – so sick, so deliberate, the only point to humiliate and undermine

    • Lars Littlefield

      My stepsister was CFO of Donna Karan for ten years from 1987 to 1997. In addition to keeping Donna Karan from bankruptcy almost every year she had to baby sit Donna who is one fucked up woman. She hasn’t had an original idea since 1989. I’ve seen Donna Karan have a temper tantrum in Marilyn’s office, needing to be calmed down with horse tranquilizers. The woman is not to be trusted. Her existence is chemically induced. She’s a big fan of SSRIs, benzodiazepines, and vodka to complement her cocaine habit. Anyone who buys into her fantasy gets what they deserve.

      Lepto in *humans* is rare in the US, but it’s not uncommon in dogs and it’s one of the rare infections that dogs actually can transmit to humans. (Still a rare occurrence, but increasing.) Transmission to dogs (and thus to humans, potentially,) is via urine of deer and other critters. It’s not uncommon for it to be lethal for dogs, and very unpleasant (though rarely lethal) for humans.

      So… got a dog that you run in the woods, or walk in a neighborhood where deer travel about… there’s a Lepto vaccine that Vets are offering. It ain’t cheap and requires multiple dosing, but, consider it if anything above applies. On the other hand, if your Vet tries to push it and your dog does not encounter deer nor run free in the woods, don’t bother with the expense.

    “At first blush, you’d think that Iowa might be one of the Trump administration’s favorite states. After voting for Obama in both 2008 and 2012, Iowa gave its 6 electoral votes to Trump in 2016. Both its senators, three of its four congressmen (including the nativist Steve King), and its governor are Republicans. The state legislature is controlled by Republicans. But it certainly seems like the Trump
    administration is fundamentally—and intentionally—messing with the well-being of Iowa’s economy.

    Who gives a shit about IQ anyway. If it’s not used the right way, IQ is wasted. I know some people who are very smart and also complete assholes. I cannot stand them. Other people with ‘normal’ IQ have much better people skills, leader skills, curiosity, creativity, varied interests and hobbies, etc. They’re humans, with empathy and care for others.

    Obviously there are smart people who also are good people. But they’re the ones who don’t rub their intelligence in your face all the time, because they’re GOOD PEOPLE and they know what really matters.

    • I give a shit about IQ! And I truly believe that those running for public office should have to have an IQ that is well above what idiots like trumP and Gomert and Steve King probably have. An EQ (Emotional Quotient) test is in order also. There should be certain standards for those who wish govern, fuck this shit about “Anybody can grow up to be president!” No! Especially a president/senator/member of congress should have above intelligence and compassion for all people not just their own.

            As the moment I am listening to a lot of Serrat who I am sure you know. The very best of both Spain and Catalunya (he was actually born just across the street here from me). An important figure in Puerto Rico too apparently. Though outspoken over the years in his defence of Catalunya and the Catalan language, he does not support independence. Anyway this song always reminds me of why I moved here in the first place.

            If I may, what work do you find to do? I was a plaster caster there in the early 70’s, a souvenir sort of manufacturing. Things that looked like they’d sell in Tijuana or some border crossing town or another. Curious place. Pipes of hash at each work station and a communal meal, then siesta. Each bowl full of the stews the guy made had a full head of garlic that would dissolve in the mouth, only the paper skin remained. Just about a liter of vino rojo each. The Roma seemed drawn to us. Someone said it was because of the garlic reeking thru our skin and on our clothes.
            Barcelona was so dream like.

            Long time seeing your comments.

            In spite of what I can not imagine happening there, maybe tonight’s full moon will give you some distraction.

            Cuidate.

            So,

            As I lay me down to sleep
            I pray the Feds are poised to leap
            If they indict before I awake
            I pray Don Jr. is the one they take

    AS PUERTO RICO RECEDES FROM THE HEADLINES: A reminder from journalist Garrett Graff: “The extent the US media (and politics) has moved past Puerto Rico astounds me. If Iowa was 85% without power, would still be 24/7 news.”

    • i’m sure everyone here knows how the media treat people in iowa and PR, and how it’s not the same…

    • SoCalGal20

      Flint STILL doesn’t have clean drinking water. So while IA would probably still be in the news, others probably not so much.

      And if PR were 85% closer to the US mainland, or 85% more Republican for that matter, we’d still be hearing about it.

    I”m all ‘why bother?’ and will not cast a mayoral vote for the first time. Other matters sure. But these goombahs?

      MOOSE!

      I can understand why. de Blasio is no winner, you certainly can’t vote Republican, and Dietl looks kind of crazy. If you did, I imagine it would be de Blasio with a serious protest. 🙂

        Sal Albanese is on the ballot, and we’ve always voted for him. I’m glad he wasn’t in/on the debate, tho he’s always been a reasonable voice on matters. At least there are three proposed measures on the ballot. Time to do some homework.

    OT. Apparently today’s National Coming Out Day. I lose track of these things…

      So that’s why my stamina trainer outed me in front of some other clients . . . was our last session together. And he really had no need to do so, I’m always of the “why would you assume I’m straight?” MO.

    Happy National Coming Out Day 😉

    According to Politico, this is what caused Tillerson to call Trump a moron…
