There’s never been any doubt that Donald J. Trump thinks of himself pretty highly. It was apparent all through his campaign for the presidency, of course, but he’s been like that his entire life: Entitled, rich, spoiled, and narcissistic.
But since he was elected, it’s only gotten progressively worse. In fact, you don’t even need to scroll back far on his social media feed to see him retweeting praise about himself from others, something he seemingly can’t live without — and doing a little praising of The Donald himself:
Has anyone noticed that the top shows on @foxnews and cable ratings are those that are Fair (or great) to your favorite President, me! Congratulations to @seanhannity for being the number one show on Cable Television!

Over 90% approval rating for your all time favorite (I hope) President within the Republican Party and 52% overall. This despite all of the made up stories by the Fake News Media trying endlessly to make me look as bad and evil as possible. Look at the real villains please!

“China Trade Turmoil: China Urging a CALM AND RATIONAL Solution.” @MariaBartiromo @FoxBusiness China is doing very poorly while the USA, under your favorite President’s leadership, continues to soar to new heights – and, despite the Do Nothing Democrats, we have just begun!

The Washington Post is a Fact Checker only for the Democrats. For the Republicans, and for your all time favorite President, it is a Fake Fact Checker!

But it’s definitely not the first time Trump has thought he was the best President of all time. In fact, for comic relief, I can’t help but go back to the time that Trump announced to a whole room full of people that one of America’s longest-serving Senators, Orrin Hatch of Utah, had called him “the greatest President in the history of our country,” and was met with the laughter that should absolutely greet a statement that stupid:
Orrin — I love listening to him speak. He said once that I am the single greatest president in his lifetime — now he’s a young man, so it’s not that much. And he actually once said I’m the greatest president in the history of our country, and I said, ‘Does that include Lincoln and Washington?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘I love this guy.’ I love him. He’s a special guy.”
But the thing is, he wasn’t even right about what Hatch had said.
I like to think Trump learned a little something from all that — but looking at his recent Twitter posts, he doesn’t seem to have been disabused of the notion.
