Trump "No Politician Treated Worse" Reactions

Trump Says He's Treated "Unfairly" — and the Internet Reminds Him Who's Had It Worse

It gets a bit harder every day to keep up with President Donald Trump's latest gaffes or the next piece of information about his potential shady interactions with Russia. But the internet doesn't let anything slide by, especially when Trump makes it so easy. His latest comments to leave the internet reeling include his insistence that he's the only politician "in history" who "has been treated worse or more unfairly." He also calls the investigations into his administration's alleged ties with Russia the "single greatest witch hunt."

That first remark was made during Trump's commencement speech on May 17 to the US Coast Guard Academy. Trump offered advice to the new graduates, telling them, "Never, never, never give up. Things will work out just fine. Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can't let them get you down. You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams." Watch a clip of his speech ahead.

The internet immediately reminded Trump there are several politicians and leaders who were treated "worse or more unfairly."

Some took the time to remind Trump of his involvement in the birther movement against former President Barack Obama.

But as more news broke on May 17, first of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy "joking" that Vladimir Putin pays Trump and then that numerous people on Trump's team knew former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was under investigation, the president tweeted the following:

This once again prompted another hilarious reaction from the internet, including Representative Seth Moulton from Salem, MA.

Others brought up the Obama birther movement again.
