During his recent interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News (in which Trump made headlines by claiming he'd accept foreign interference in the 2020 election if it helped him), the President made another, less criminal claim that was nonetheless pretty embarrassing.
The President stated:
"There's never been a time in the history of our country where somebody was so mistreated as I have been."
Of course, it wouldn't be a crazy quote from President Trump if his son, Don Jr., didn't blindly support it.
Of course, the idea that no one in the history of the nation has been treated worse than President Trump is a pretty insane one.
People pointed out quite a few people who have been treated a little worse than the most powerful person on the planet.
Some of them had even been treated badly by Trump himself...
There have even been other Presidents treated worse than Trump has.
History is filled to the brim with people treated badly by people like Donald Trump.
Even today, there are immigrants being held in detention camps against their will that one might argue are being treated worse than the Trumps.
One would think Don Jr., of all people, would realize his dad doesn't have it as hard as some others...
Don Jr. has made his own bed and now he has to sleep in it.
Maybe the President should take a step back and learn some history before giving interviews.
