The Hill reports:
President Trump did not imply he was smarter than Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, his top spokesperson said Tuesday, claiming his offer for both to take an IQ test was a joke. “The president certainly never implied that the secretary of State was not intelligent. He made a joke. Nothing more than that,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Tuesday. Sanders said the two men “had a great visit at lunch” and reiterated Trump has confidence in his secretary of State.
Huckabee Sanders GOES THERE:
“He made a joke. Maybe you guys should get a sense of humor and try it sometime.”

A joke like making fun of a disabled reporter? Or a joke like encouraging law enforcement to bash the heads of suspects?
So many jokes!
