Donald Trump had the audacity to give his work in the White House over the last year an “A+” grade of Fox News on Thursday.
Asked during an interview on “Fox & Friends” what kind of grade he would give himself, Trump started ranting against the special counsel investigation into his administration’s connections with Russia before eventually saying, “I would give myself an A+.”
“Nobody has done what I’ve been able to do,” he said. “And I did it despite the fact that I have a phony cloud over my head that doesn’t exist.”
Trump once again pushed the tired rhetoric that there was no collusion with Russia, and that the entire investigation is a “hoax” and a “witch hunt,” despite the fact that 75 charges have been brought against 19 “witches,” four of which are cooperating and five of which have already pled guilty.
“It was what the Democrats use to try to make an excuse for the loss of the election, for their loss of the Electoral College,” Trump said on Thursday. “This was an absolute, total beating in the Electoral College.”
But the reality is, Trump isn’t as popular as he’d like to think.
A recent survey concluded that some experts have minimal satisfaction with the president. This survey placed President Donald Trump dead last in a ranking of American commanders in chief.
The 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey asked experts (current or former members of the Presidents and Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association) to rate each U.S. president on a scale of 0-100 for overall greatness.
The incumbent president claimed the bottom position with an astoundingly low average score of 12.34. Unsurprisingly, his scores fared much better among those voters who identified as Republicans or conservatives. According to them, he was ranked the 40th greatest president of all time.
This isn’t the first time the delusional imposter has given himself higher marks than he deserves.
Last year, during his first few weeks in the White House, Trump claimed:
“In terms of achievement, I think I’d give myself an A. Because I think I’ve done great things — I and my people, but I don’t think we’ve explained it well enough to the American public.”
“I think I give myself an A in terms of what I’ve actually done,” Trump added.
