How smart is Donald Trump?
A few days before his inauguration, Trump visits the White House to meet with Barack Obama. After a dinner together, Obama says:
“Well Donald, I don’t know who you’re going to to put in your administration, but the politicians in mine are all bright and brilliant.”
“Is that so?” Trump asks.
“Oh yes,” Obama says, “they all had to take a special test before they could join the administration – hold on for just a second.”
He waves Joe Biden over and asks him:
“Tell me Joe, who is the child of your father and mother, that isn’t your brother or sister?”
“Ah, that’s easy, Mr President” Biden replies, “It’s me!”
“Well done Joe,” Obama says. Trump is duly impressed and nods approvingly.
On his way home after the White House visit, Trump starts thinking about the level of intelligence of his future administration.
Once he gets home, he calls Mike Pence and asks him to meet him in his office. Pence arrives quickly.
“Hello Mike,” Trump says in a sly tone, “Tell me: who is the child of your father and mother, that isn’t your brother or sister?”
Pence frowns, thinks intensely about the question, but is unable to find out the answer.
“Can I have some time to figure it out?” Pence asks.
“You have 24 hours,” Trump replies.
Pence heads back to his office and spends rest of the day deep in thought. He calls his assistants and Rick Perry to his office, but they are unable to crack the riddle.
When 20 of the 24 hours have passed, Pence starts to panic. Suddenly, he gets an idea. He’ll ask James “Mad Dog” Mattis for help.
Pence calls James Mattis.
“James, you’ve got to help me here,” Pence says, “Trump gave me another of those impossible riddles and I think my spot in the administration is one line.”
“What’s the question?” Mattis asks. Pence replies:
“Who is the child of your father and mother, that isn’t your brother or sister?”
“That’s easy,” Mattis says, “it’s me!”
“Ah, yes, of course!” Pence says, and heads over to Trump’s office at breakneck speed. He has barely gotten inside the door when he yells:
“Donald, I know the answer! It’s James Mattis.”
With a satisfied look on a face, he sits down in the chair across from Trump’s desk. Trump, with a tired and disappointed look, replies:
“I’m sorry Mike, but your answer is incorrect. The correct answer is Joe Biden.”
