SNL hits Trump on IQ test: ‘I’m the only guy who even knows what IQ means’

“Saturday Night Live” in its latest episode mocked President Trump for offering to compare IQ tests with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

“How dumb is that Rex Tillerson folks, I mean really, what a dumb, dumb dumb-a-rooni,” Alec Baldwin said on SNL, impersonating Trump.

“And he has the nerve to call me a moron. Talk about the pot calling the kettle Mexican.”

{mosads}Baldwin’s Trump said he is “so much smarter” than Tillerson.

“I have a huge IQ. I took an IQ test. Let me just assure you, it came back positive, very positive. My IQ is through the roof and frankly, through many of the clouds as well,” he said.

“And by the way, I’m the only guy who even knows what IQ means. Most people don’t even know what it stands for. ‘Incredible,’ a lot of people don’t know that.”

Trump in an interview earlier this month offered to compare IQ tests with Tillerson after reports that the Secretary of State called him a “moron.”

“I think it’s fake news, but if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests,” Trump told Forbes in an interview published earlier this month. “And I can tell you who is going to win.”

The comment came after a report that Tillerson called Trump a moron and considered leaving the administration.

Tillerson later denied he ever considered leaving the administration. A State Department spokeswoman said he did not refer to the president using such language.
