When Americans think of presidential behavior, the name Donald Trump does not spring to mind at all.
But Trump stood behind a podium in Youngstown, Ohio on Tuesday and threw his shit all over the place in a desperate and pathetic effort to place himself higher than even the Founding Fathers.
According to Trump, he is “more presidential” than every president except Abraham Lincoln and claimed that behaving presidential is “easy.”
“And I say – great schools, smart guy – it’s so easy to act presidential,” Trump bellowed. “But that’s not going to get it done.”
“With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office,” Trump continued. “It’s real easy.”
Here’s the video via YouTube.
Trump literally claimed that his behavior as president is better than George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, and even conservative god Ronald Reagan. Seriously.
That is a complete insult to the presidency and the legacies these men left behind when their presidencies ended.
Trump’s claim is totally laughable and is yet another embarrassing display by a small man who knows that his own legacy is one of failure, whining, and lies.
We’re talking about an orange shitgibbon who will most likely be impeached or put in prison long before he serves a full term. We’re talking about an imbecile who insults our allies. We’re talking about a traitor who colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign. We’re talking about a crybaby who throws a temper tantrum every time he is criticized. A thin-skinned petulant child who couldn’t handle the fact that his inauguration crowd was smaller the President Obama’s. A wind-bag who displays his narcissism every chance he gets. A creep who brags about grabbing women by their genitals without their consent.
Donald Trump is a lot of things, but presidential is definitely NOT one of them. And Americans should be outraged that Trump would insult our past presidents in this way.
