Trump Just Lied About His Approval Rating To Prove He’s Better Than Obama

Former reality show star Donald Trump has always had an obsessive jealousy of former President Barack Obama. Trump called on his followers Sunday to stop watching networks that say he has a ‘somewhat low’ approval rating, then he cited the conservative-leaning Rasmussen pollsters but his numbers are wrong.

“Rasmussen and others have my approval ratings at around 50%, which is higher than Obama, and yet the political pundits love saying my approval ratings are ‘somewhat low,'” Trump tweeted.

“They know they are lying when they say it. Turn off the show – FAKE NEWS!”

The internet pounced.

In fact, Rasmussen Reports has Trump’s approval rating at just 44 percent, not 50 percent. The majority of other pollsters have Trump’s approval rating between percentages in the high 30s and low 40s. Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling and that is not ‘fake news.’
