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.

According to a February 2019 decision by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment means that a woman may go topless in any place that a man may go topless.

This earlier court ruling was the basis of Effie Krokos' argument when she was ticketed—months after the decision—for being topless in her fiancé's front yard in Loveland, Colorado.

Most of the time, dress codes are there for a reason. Sure, there are the unfair instances of "no spaghetti straps at school" and "no jeans at the office". But at the same time, there are certain work environments that don't call for inappropriate wear. And when you go in for that first interview, you've got to leave a good impression.

Nothing gives you a shock to the system quite like moving away from home for the first time. Maybe you're one of many in a college dorm. Perhaps you're living with roommates somewhere. Or you might be enjoying the pleasure of having your own place for the first time.

On a recent visit to Toronto, Tom Felton—the actor behind Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise—shared a hilariously self-deprecating shot from his visit to a Harry Potter exhibit.

While there, Felton donned a Slytherin robe and posed next to a picture of his younger self as Malfoy, looking...well, a bit rough around the edges.
