Donald Trump has it bad. Nobody has it worse. Terrible. And he wants new graduates to know it.
“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,” Trump said in a commencement speech at the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut on Wednesday. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.”
No politician in history. Please don’t fact check that.
“No politician in history… has been treated worse.” – Trump

Stop treating this man so unfairly, everyone. Sure, his team knew Michael Flynn was a paid lobbyist for Turkey when he was made national security adviser, and also he reportedly disclosed highly classified information to the Russians, and he nominated a man with a brutal authoritarian streak to serve in the Department of Homeland Security, but we all make mistakes.
Plus, that news is from the ancient past, as in the last two days. President Trump, and I say this with great surety, won’t do anything like that again until probably at this very moment in time, right now.
