Trump called Rex Tillerson 'dumb as a rock' and everyone is making the same point

Donald Trump's week of relatively good behaviour came to a crashing conclusion on Friday when he went on the mother of all Twitter rants.

Most of his grievances were in direct response to the Robert Mueller investigation, with the tweets being riddled with typos and random capital letters.

In a break from that subject, he aimed a jibe at his Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who had spoken to CBS about his firing from office in March.

In the interview with Bob Schieffer, Tillerson accused Trump of being 'undisciplined' and someone 'doesn't like to read.' He said:

What was challenging for me coming from the disciplined, highly process-oriented ExxonMobil corporation to go to work for a man who is pretty undisciplined, doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read briefing reports, doesn’t like to get into the details of a lot of things, but rather just kind of says, 'This is what I believe.'

So often, the president would say here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, 'Mr. President I understand what you want to do but you can't do it that way. It violates the law.'

Trump didn't take kindly to his Tillerson's analysis of his character and in a rather unsavoury tweet questioned his 'mental capacity' and called him as 'dumb as a rock.'

Now we aren't in the business of pointing fingers here but a lot of people couldn't help but think that this was a bit rich coming from a man that hasn't shown the greatest 'mental capacity' in the past.

People also came to the defence of Tillerson and pointed out some of his achievements which would indicate that he probably isn't as 'dumb as a rock.'

Others pointed out that if Tillerson was so dumb, why did Trump hire him in the first place?

Let's not forget that Melania Trump launched an anti-cyberbullying campaign earlier this year...

This is probably the most interesting point of all.
