Tillerson was merely suggesting that Der Trumper was not QUITE at the absolute bottom of the IQ scale,

Introduction
Two French psychologists, Alfred Binet and Theodore Simon, created the first "modern intelligence test in 1911, which measured intelligence quotient ("IQ").
Intelligence Levels
As psychologists developed and refined IQ Testing, classification systems were established, and any child with an IQ of above 70 was considered "normal", while those with scores above 130 were considered "gifted."
Retardation Levels
To classify scores below 70, psychologists invented a scale of "retardation"
-M0r0ns, Imbeciles, and Idi0ts:
 
M0r0ns-
Those with IQs between 51 and 70 (adequate learning skills to complete menial
tasks and to communicate)
 
Imbeciles-
Those with IQs between 26 and 50 (unable to progress past a mental age of
approximately six) Clearly Tillerson was being highly accurate in his description of Der Trumper, but for total accuracy we'd need to add EMOTIONAL age to mental age being arrested around 6 years.
 
Idi0ts -those with IQs between 0 and 25 (poor motor skills, extremely limited communication, and little response to stimulus)
 
The m0r0n/imbecile/idi0t classification system remained in use until the early 1970s.

@CriticalThinking  Taking your own thread off-topic here. 

 

The original story has been discredited by Tillerman. Sorry.

 

Of course he's going to deny it; what's he going to do, admit it?  Just look at how many story's we're hearing that are "discredited", but are shown to be far more truthful than fiction.

I say he was too polite, its clearly FAKE news by NBC.

Here are comments from the business page (not a political site). They are not my words

 

  • Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he never considered resigning from his job.
  • He does not deny calling President Donald Trump a mxxxn.

@CriticalThinking  Thanks for adding that link.

 

I just saw the story on Twitter and came back to add the link myself. Beat me to it. Smiley Happy

 

That said, to me this is kind of a yawner. There will be disagreements. That's actually a good thing. So is working through differences. Smiley Happy Annd then there's the video posted elsewhere in which Tillerson claims not to have had any such disagreement, which makes this a huge yawner.

 

And bad reporting if not out and out fake news pushing.

PS This is hearsay (maybe even fake news), this Tillerson non-quote, without names. You knew that. Nevermind.
