Trump Claims A Pollster Told Him “If George Washington And Abraham Lincoln Came Alive From The Dead And Formed A President And VP Team” He’d Beat Them By 40%

You couldn't make this nonsense up if you tried.

Listen, there’s quite literally hardly anything that Donald Trump does or says that doesn’t work all over my last nerve. Seriously, just knowing that the man is walking around breathing every day is extremely annoying to me — and I don’t even have to physically, personally hear it happening. Just the knowledge of it alone is like nails on a chalkboard every time I think about it.

But, from a personal standpoint, I don’t know if there is anything more irritating about that washed-up, scandal-ridden has-been than his God-forsaken “Sir” stories.

Pretty much every single public speaking event that I have witnessed from this man (which is a whole lot, by the way, doing what I do) it never fails that he pops off to the crowd with one of these ridiculous stories about some person or another, who always, always apparently calls him “Sir,” heaping their praises on him — usually while simultaneously shitting all over his enemies like Joe Biden or even Ron DeSantis.

My guess is that just short of 100 percent of these stories are absolute made-up nonsense, half-cooked from Donald’s dementia-fried brain, as part of his never-ending and increasingly desperate effort to keep himself relevant by whatever means necessary. But nevertheless, he just keeps telling them. And now, it seems he’s gotten to the point that he’s started to recycle them.

Over the years, we’ve listened to Trump brag on several occasions that he could supposedly beat a presidential ticket consisting of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. He’s popped off with that ridiculousness more times than we can count now.

But nevertheless, during his speech at the Hispanic Leadership Conference this afternoon, he declared it yet again.

“I believe I remember a very famous pollster, very well-known, John McLaughlin, came to my office just prior to the plague coming in,” Trump told his crowd, “He said, ‘Sir if George Washington and Abraham Lincoln came alive from the dead and formed a President, Vice President team, you would beat them by 40 percent.”

I’ll give you three guesses as to how social media reacted to this one. But let’s be honest, you only need one:

Someone at least get this fool some new material, for Pete’s sake.
