Americans seem to be obsessed with Melania Trump’s IQ. As the new first lady, she remains an enigma shrouded in the cloak of wealth and privilege. A woman not given to frequent interviews or public appearances, Mrs. Trump’s IQ has been a source of speculation since at least last spring, when it became clear that her husband, Donald, would become the Republican nominee for president.
Viral ads on Facebook and other social media sites have lured unsuspecting folks into click bait articles that tease readers with information about Trump’s IQ, but they don’t deliver. News aggregator Reddit has a subreddit called r/SavedYouAClick, on which members post archived links of click bait titles. The archived post from smartied.com promises to show the IQs of famous people, with Melania Trump included. However, the site never gives her actual intelligence quotient, only that she’s a savvy businesswoman with a thriving jewelry line.
