    No, he did not. He said he never thought about resigning. The whole point of the story is that when directly asked about calling trump a moron, he evaded the question. He did not deny calling trump a moron.
    Our President is a moron and even his top Cabinet official, the Secretary of State says so.

    A spokesman for the Department came out a bit later and issued the clarifying statement that Tillerson never called Trump a moron. I don't really think he was evading the question. He was pissed that the conversation had even sunk to that level; that's what he was trying to convey, but he needed a bigger head of steam to get that message across effectively. Telling a bunch of reporters that they are acting like morons needs a bit of wholehearted disgust and derision.

    It was a weak denial by a "spokesperson" and does not even qualify as a real denial. The spokesman said the Sec. of State does not use that kind of language and would not call the President a name. There was no categorical denial or evidence to dispute the report that I saw.

    He himself could not deny it, so as it rests he obviously did call T a moron (as far as I'm concerned). The spokeswomen was doing her job which she gets paid for.

    Yes he doesn't lie as easily as T does.

    Bullshyting your way by evading a direct answer and deflecting is not honesty.
