Donald Trump told journalists that he believed he could beat George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in an election.

"I think it would be hard if George Washington came back from the dead and he chose Abraham Lincoln as his vice-president, I think it would have been very hard for them to beat me," Trump told Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.

Rucker and Leonnig recounted the comment in their new book about Trump, "I Alone Can Fix It," according to a review by The Guardian.

Lincoln and Washington are often ranked by historians as the two greatest presidents in US history.

14. Sometimes, it sounds like

he is trying to convince himself more than everyone else. Terribly insecure, Trump spent a lifetime trying to shut out all the voices that told him what an ignorant loser he was. On some level, he knows it is true, so he just talks louder making more outrageous claims.

He only got in with help from Russia and the Relic of Slavery College.

What a fucked-up mind! Every time he spouts off his braggadocio, I think about that old cartoon with the plumber holding a plunger, looking at the toilet, and saying, "Aw, man, this shit ain't gonna go!"

6. I remember that. I was in another forum recently and a poster

Brought that up to show how brave TFG was. It’s incredible that his fans take his insane ramblings a the truth. The are completely divorced from reality. In a sane world TFG would be sedated in a rubber room slobbering on himself and no one would listen or care what he had to say.

13. I don't think he believes that for one minute - he just LOVES to praise himself.

Putin has also paid/encouraged him to say horribly stupid deluded stuff to hurt America and raise up the worldwide right wing (nazi) movement of which he's a part. Putin is the leader of the plot and it's sadly going well for him, right wing authoritarianism is spreading over the world very fast.

they didn't pick it clean. And they both put down wars on our soil, one to create a country and the other to try to hold it together under an insurrection.

Once Fox News, the GOP, and AM radio got done with the founders, they'd be forever labeled Commie America hating self interested hicks that had no idea how to run a business, let alone a country. The MAGAs would rally against them en mass with Trump nicknames like "Stinkin' Lincoln" and "Little Georgie Porgie"..

Dearest Martha,
As we await boarding at Dulles I have found one of my soldiers who likes to be called "THE DONALD" has contracted the bone spur and has decided to fly standby. I am most certain we will not see him in battle.

18. Makes sense to me. Wasn't Washington a DemmyCrat?

Now Lincoln was a Republican. That would be harder for him to win against.


But then again, as pointed out above, he couldn't even beat Joe who was asleep in his basement during the campaign.

After all, Washington admitted chopping down the cherry tree, 45ii wants to rebrand all cherry trees “evil Antifa trees” in live Fox News interviews.
