    In a recent interview with Forbes Magazine, US President Donald Trump offered to compare his IQ score with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s in response to reports of the secretary calling him a “moron.”

    Testing Tillerson

    Though Trump called the original NBC report "fake news," The Donald went on to say he and Tillerson would "have to compare IQ tests." While the White House asserted in a Tuesday press briefing that he was merely cracking a joke, it was not too long ago that Trump was bragging about his education and intellect on the campaign trail.

    Could it be that Trump is scared of what an actual IQ test would reveal?
