Donald Trump Challenged Rex Tillerson To An IQ Test Because 2017 Is A Garbage Fire We Cannot Escape

What even is happening.

GUYS IT HAS BEEN A TIME. We can all acknowledge that, right?

But honestly, raise your hand if you did not expect to wake up to the goddamn president of the United States challenging the secretary of state to a goddamn IQ duel.

(Raises both hands and feet and elevates slightly off the ground in amazement at the current political kerfuffle).

It all started when Tillerson ~allegedly~ called Trump a "fucking moron."

When asked about the "moron" comment during a press conference, Tillerson said "I'm not gonna deal with petty stuff like that. The places I come from, we don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense. It is intended to do nothing but divide people and I'm not gonna be part of this effort to divide this administration." MMKAY.

Welp! Trump responded presidentially by just ignoring it and concerning himself with important policy decisions.

JK! He offered to compare IQ tests to see who would "win."

"I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests," Trump said in an interview with Forbes magazine on Tuesday. "And I can tell you who is going to win."

And because we are living on the darkest, most dystopian of Twitter timelines, Mensa — a society for people with high IQs — is interested in hosting an IQ test battle between the two.

Naturally, they did it over Twitter.

If only there was an organization known for measuring IQ... 🤔 https://t.co/xbOKnW63ta

To be sure, this is not the first time Trump has boasted about his IQ.

I know some of you may think l'm tough and harsh but actually I'm a very compassionate person (with a very high IQ) with strong common sense

And then, at the end of it all, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it was all a joke.

In a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, she said "He made a joke, no more than that."

Of course, people are pretty much foaming at the mouth to see these IQ test results.

But what if you DID take on Trump in an IQ contest, and you lost? What happens to your life after that? Where do you go? Who will love you?

There was a lot of speculation.

How much you wanna bet we find out Trump's IQ score is literally a banana

And bargaining.

I'd empty my life savings to watch Trump take an IQ test https://t.co/4L9o6cEZ3C

At the end of the day this is probably what most of us are feeling about the whole damn debacle:

Me hoping that Trump and Tillerson really do take an IQ test challenge! :)
