Newly released video by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes shows billionaire Bill Gates mocking Donald Trump in front of a live audience.
Apparently, Trump didn’t even know the difference between two medical terms, one being HIV and the other HPV.
HIV is the virus that leads to AIDS while HPV refers to the human papillomavirus, which can cause genital warts and even cancer.
Here’s the zinger Mr. Gates gave:
“He wanted to know if there was a difference between HIV and HPV,” Gates says recounting a time he spoke with Trump. “So I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other.”

Gates then mocked Trump for wanting to make a grand entrance in a helicopter, trying to look cool. In this case, Trump was already on the property talking to his wife, but he left in order to return in a helicopter.

Gates just completely tears into Trump here. He mocks him for talking to him in the third person.

In case that didn’t sting, may we also point out that the joke came from someone with a net worth of 92.2 billion.
As of this writing, Trump’s wealth stands just at 3.2 billion – that’s 30 times less. If there’s anything Trump doesn’t hate more, it’s being made fun of by people richer than he is.
That aside – what really hurts is the fact that Trump really didn’t know what the difference was between the two.
The other thing is that Gates and former President Barack Obama share something in common and that’s their love for books. Trump hates books. He prefers his Presidential Daily Briefing to be far shorter than almost any president to ever hold the office. He says he’s “too smart” to read the same thing over and over again.
