If you guessed the former Grifter-In-Chief and Biggest Sore Loser of Them All — the 45th President of the United States of America — you’d be right.
Donald Trump’s incessant boasting is one of his most obnoxious traits — another is the fact that much of his bragging is based on lies — the size of the crowd at his inauguration, for example.
But here’s an achievement Trump has chosen not to boast about. In October 2019 he became the most unpopular president in the history of polling, according to ratings compiled by Gallup.
“The idea is to die young as late as possible.”
— Former President George W. Bush, quoted by the Washington Post, delivering the eulogy at his father’s funeral.
“Did we ever think we would see the day when we would say, ‘Please bring back George W. Bush?’ We really did work together.”
— House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), quoted by the Texas Tribune.
“That was some weird sh*t.”
— Former President George W. Bush, quoted by New York Magazine, at Donald Trump’s inauguration in January.
I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. We needed the media to hold people like me to account. Power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive, and it’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power.
— Former President George W. Bush, in an interview on the Today Show.
Good news: People have caught on. Bad news: Donald will be even more determined to start a war in hope that, like Bush did in 2003, he’ll gain approval as a war-time president.
