    Trump's IQ is supposed to be 157.

    I think the dumb Bush (W) is supposed to have an IQ about 140.

    That might be his blood pressure, but not his IQ.

    Based on my SAT score, my IQ was about 130 in 1987.

    Eladar's a sucker for right-wing American propaganda.
    Who's stupid enough to believe Donald Trump's IQ is really 156+?

    "Intelligence Commotion
    A chart purportedly showing Donald Trump's IQ ranking compared to other Presidents
    is based on incomplete and inaccurate information."

    "CLAIM
    Donald Trump's IQ, at 156, is comparable to that of the smartest U.S. presidents.
    RATING
    FALSE
    ORIGIN
    A chart purportedly ranking the intelligence quotients of former presidents of the United
    States made the rounds on social media in December 2016, along with the claim that
    the President-elect would rank among the smartest, boasting an IQ of 156:"

    "This chart is based on a real study; however, the claim that Donald Trump has an IQ of
    156 is not. This rumor has been circulating since at least August 2015, when an
    estimation of his possible intelligence appeared in an article published by the web site
    BeforeItsNews.com:

    "Donald Trump graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in
    1968, with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics and anthropology. Mensa
    doesn’t accept SAT scores from after 1994. However Mr Trump was a student at
    Wharton when it was possible to derive an accurate IQ core from known SAT scores.
    Given the usual requirements for admission to a top school like Wharton, I estimate that
    Mr. Trump has a 156 IQ at the minimum.

    he standard description of this level of intelligence is “Genius – Exception intellectual
    ability and capable of looking beyond known facts.” However, the percentile rating is
    more revealing than the raw score. A 156 IQ is at the 99.9905490555 percentile. That
    means that Donald Trump is smarter than 99.99 percent of the people on planet earth.
    Not only does Trump qualify for membership in Mensa but he could join the Triple Nine Society,"

    This article is chock-full of logical missteps and factual inaccuracies. Trump’s official
    school transcripts are not available, so it is impossible to know his actual scholastic
    aptitude scores. While the article’s author used Wharton’s general admission
    requirements to estimate Trump’s IQ, the math still doesn’t quite add up.

    According to PrepScholar.com, Wharton’s SAT requirements are currently set at 1500.
    This roughly translates to an IQ score between 145 and 149, not 156. Regardless,
    Wharton’s admission requirements are irrelevant, since Trump did not enter Wharton
    as a freshman. He transferred there his junior year, and Wharton does not list SAT
    scores among its requirements for transfer students.

    Gwenda Blair claimed in her 2001 biography about Donald Trump and his family that
    the President-elect was admitted to Wharton thanks to a friendly admissions officer:"

    According to Whodey, that proves Obama was smarter than his Republican opponents.
