Trump says cabinet's IQ highest ever, EPA pick disproves it

Donald Trump today said his cabinet has the highest IQ of any such grouping.

Two things.

1. We have learned that when Trump speaks with his signature exaggeration, he means just the opposite but can't see the truth because his narcissism is blinding.

And he'd probably read this critical editorial in, as he is wont to say, the 'failing' New York Times: 

Within a 24-hour period Tuesday and Wednesday, three of the most controversial and quite possibly the least qualified of these nominees paraded across the screen in a cavalcade of misstatements, lapses of judgment, conflicts of interest and from time to time spectacular displays of ignorance and insensitivity.
2. His pick for EPA administrator just gave the lie to Trump's accolade:
Donald Trump's pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged Wednesday that he isn't familiar with basic science on the health effects of lead. At his confirmation hearing, Scott Pruitt was asked by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md) whether he believes there is any safe level of lead in the human body. "That's something I have not reviewed nor know about," Pruitt responded. He went on to say that he would be "very concerned about any level of lead" in drinking water or human consumption but added that he had "not looked at the scientific research on that."
Four-letter words come to mind.

Also, one five-letter word.
