Donald Trump is obsessively jealous of former President Barack Obama and it shows almost every single day. The former reality show star can’t fill his predecessor’s shoes and that makes him feel inadequate. So, he sent out a mass email with the header ‘Better than Obama.’
Trump claimed, without giving a source, that he’s doing a better job than President Obama was on this day in 2010.
“President Trump has a stronger approval rating (48%) today than Barack Obama (44%) did in 2010 on this same day,” the email reads. “But we bet you won’t hear it from the media.”
The email came with the header, “Better than Obama” as if he’s in a contest. Note: It’s addressed to Zilda because I use the name ‘Zilda Snaggletooth’ to get his emails. Don’t ask me why. I have no idea why I did that.
Then, Trump asks the recipients of his ego-email to rate his job performance, giving only the options of: Great, Good, Okay and other.
That is fake news. President Obama was a popular President. Trump is the least popular ‘president’ of any other in history at this point in his so-called presidency.
Trump has made this claim before.
“While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%…and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!” he tweeted in late December.

That claim was debunked by FiveThirtyEight, showing that Obama was well ahead of Trump after almost a year in the White House. Obama had an average approval rating of 49.6 percent through 343 days while Trump came in at 37.7 percent.
