To which he received the passive aggressive response:

So did NBC lie or perhaps run with a rumor that they believed to be real? Did Tillerson call the president a moron?

Tillerson says he did not, and called it “petty nonsense” that such reports would even come out.

State Department spokesman R.C. Hammond, also backs Tillerson’s claims, and said he did no such thing. He said that he never called Trump a “moron” and that he never thought about quitting over the past summer.

The Hill reports:

Tillerson pushed back on the report during an impromptu news conference on Wednesday.

“The vice president has never had to persuade me to remain as secretary of State because I have never considered leaving this post,” he said.

When asked whether he called the president a moron, however, Tillerson said, “I’m just not going to deal with petty stuff like that.”

Trump appeared to take aim at Tillerson in a pair of tweets on Sunday, saying the Cabinet official was “wasting his time” if he continued to engage in talks with North Korea.
