Trump challenges Tillerson to ‘IQ test’ after secretary of state calls him a ‘moron’

Published

President Donald Trump challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an “IQ test” while talking to a reporter at the White House.

The secretary of state reportedly called the president a “f*cking moron” during a Pentagon meeting in July, although his comments weren’t reported until last week, and Tillerson didn’t quite deny making them.

The secretary of state, however, insisted the president was “smart” — but he refused to answer a specific question about whether he’d insulted Trump’s intelligence.

The president disputed the NBC News report during an interview with Forbes published Tuesday, but he also took a shot of his own at Tillerson.

“I think it’s fake news,” Trump told Forbes, “but if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests — and I can tell you who is going to win.”

He continued his public attacks on Tillerson’s diplomatic work with North Korea, which he said was helpful to the secretary of state.

“He was wasting his time,” Trump said. “I’m not undermining, I think I’m actually strengthening authority.”

Nikki Haley busted by Civil War historian after claiming the Confederate flag was once a symbol of ‘heritage’

Published

Former South Carolina Governor and Trump United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley on Friday stirred controversy when she claimed that the Confederate flag was once a noble symbol that only lost legitimacy once it was "hijacked" by a mass murderer.

During an interview with talk show host Glenn Beck, Haley described how she reacted after white supremacist Dylann Roof murdered nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

"Here is this guy who comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag," she said, referring to Roof. "And [he] had just hijacked everything that people thought of. We don't have hateful people in South Carolina -- there's always the small minority, that's always going to be there -- but people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage, but once he did that, there was no way to overcome it."

Conservative stunned Trump is allowing Giuliani to create more evidence against him

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Jennifer Rubin was appalled -- but not surprised -- that Donald Trump is turning a blind eye to the fact that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is overseas trying to dig up dirt on Joe Biden despite the fact that the president is facing impeachment for exactly that abuse of power.

As Rubin puts it under a headline, "Trump creates evidence faster than the House can draft impeachment articles." Rubin first notes that the President has been conducting government business on unsecured lines, writing, "President Trump in the 2016 race made one argument against Hillary Clinton more than any other: Her sloppy handling of emails using a private server disqualified her from holding office. Someone that negligent with U.S. security could not be trusted."
