Donald Trump Claims Orrin Hatch Said He Was the Greatest President in History
"It`s no surprise to anyone that President Donald Trump loves to boast about how great he is. But he seemed to take things to a new level on Thursday when he suggested that some people are saying he`s the best president in American history. He attributed that extreme bit of praise to Orrin Hatch, the longest-serving Republican senator.
`He said once I am the single greatest president in his lifetime, now he`s a young man, so it`s not that much,` Trump told Congressional Republicans at their annual retreat in West Virginia. And apparently it wasn`t enough that the 83-year-old from Utah said that he was the best president in his lifetime. `He actually once said I`m the greatest president in the history of our country,` Trump told the lawmakers in his next breath. `I said, does that include Lincoln and Washington? He said yes.` The commander in chief clearly enjoyed the praise very much: `I said, I love this guy.`"
President Donald Trump likes to compare himself with the "late great Abraham Lincoln," but when historians render their verdict he`ll be compared with Richard Nixon.
Trump`s default mode is to exaggerate, if his personal physician told him "Don`t worry the length of your penis is only slightly below average," he would boast "My doc just informed me that Ron Jeremy would envy my presidential pecker."
Nobody in his right mind, not even Trump`s most deluded sycophants, would claim that he is the greatest president in history.
What Senator Hatch actually said was that Trump can be the greatest president, but never that he actually is the greatest president. Hatch said that he would like to work with the president to make this the greatest presidency in history for the American people.
Of course even that statement is patently ridiculous, it most be noted that Hatch uttered those ridiculous words in the immediate aftermath of Trump`s tax plan becoming the law of the land. When we are drunk with victory we utter all sorts of nonsense.
Trump is a blithering idiot and a world-class narcissist, I can`t wait for him to be impeached.
