Stephen Colbert spotted a moment in a new interview where Donald Trump admitted there’s an insult he really doesn’t like.
The former president told the Christian Broadcasting Network he took a cognitive test because he didn’t like being called “stupid”.
As Colbert noted, the exam does not measure intelligence but looks for signs of cognitive impairment.
Trump, however, rejoiced in his passing.
“It was an amazing thing,” he said, suggesting it forced his critics to admit his intelligence. “They now call me a dictator and stuff, but they don’t call you stupid.”
Colbert was stunned into silence for about 8 seconds.
“He thinks we don’t call him stupid?” he finally said, then dramatically turned to another camera for a close-up. “What a moron!”
