The answer is still no.


Donald Trump just keeps REVERSE-WINNING things! He reverse-repealed Obamacare with fellow success story Paul Ryan on Friday, just like he reverse-won the popular vote in the 2016 election, and because he has such a strong business acumen and surrounds himself with the best people, the American people have responded by giving him the reverse-biggest approval rating of all time! OK, maybe not technically the "reverse-biggest," because Trump can't even win when first prize means coming in dead last. But the 36% approval rating in the Gallup poll that came out Monday is pretty bad. Maybe administrations that can't even pass basic legislation when their parties control ALL THE GOVERNMENT, and also that maybe committed treason with Russia, aren't actually all that popular, on balance!

Here, Vox will line up some presidents now and make them all whip it out to see how they measure up:

A new poll released on Monday by Gallup found that Trump’s approval rating has plummeted to 36 percent — 2 points lower than President Barack Obama’s nadir of 38 percent, which he hit in both 2011 and 2014. [...]

Beyond Obama, Trump is now more unpopular than several other recent presidents were at any point during their presidencies, according to Gallup. Bill Clinton’s all-time low was 37 percent, as his first year in office was weighed down by the Whitewater scandal; Gerald Ford only hit a low of 37 percent; and Dwight D Eisenhower never dipped below 48 percent.

Isn't Whitewater when the Clintons were just cold body-counting everybody? NO, IT IS NOT, BERNIE HANGERS-ON, you read that in the fake news memes Russia put in your news feed, because Russia has no manners.

But don't worry, while Trump's approval rating is indeed tiny, and it's virtually UNHEARD OF for new presidents to be sucking this hard before the first 100 days are over, it's not the smallest one America has ever seen:

But while ugly, Trump’s unpopularity isn’t unprecedented, either. George W. Bush sank to 25 percent during the Iraq War; Jimmy Carter fell to 28 percent; and Richard Nixon hit 24 percent as impeachment hung over his head.

Vox adds that Reagan went all the way down to 35% at one point, so Trump should reverse-beat that record by Thursday or so.

And there is even more hope for Trump! If he is president for six or seven minutes longer, we're sure he can get as unpopular as Nixon was right before he resigned! We're all pretty sure the Russia scandal is indeed bigger than Watergate, so maybe Trump can actually make history and tank himself into the teens before this is all over.

Another thing that is more beloved than Donald Trump is George W. Bush when he was letting New Orleans drown in real time:

HECKUVA JOB, TRUMPIE.

Oh well, it's probably just "shrinkage" and "don't worry it happens to all guys," just kidding no it doesn't, you suck, Donald Trump, you really, really do.

How do you do, fellow libs? We come together tonight to cheer and clap and cry and laugh, with our leader, Elizabeth Warren, and her fellow nice people Jay Inslee (the gold standard in climate action), Beto O'Rourke (excellent on being a good ally mostly), Cory Booker (best corny love hippie but also Wall Street, it's weird), Julian Castro (I don't know, people are super into him despite his creepy twinness and his too much pomade), Amy Klobuchar (bad bitch), Bill de Blasio ( ... ), John Delaney (???), and Tim Ryan and Tulsi Gabbard.

We know, the thing we said in our headline is a thing you can say every day, but it's really intense today, maybe because Donald Trump is now filled with fear of the inescapable reality that millions of Americans who have not read the Mueller Report are going to see Robert Mueller testify on live TV on July 17, and Donald Trump will be exposed. Maybe the Big Mac vending machine next to his golden toilet is on the fritz and he hasn't had gotten to eat a Big Mac on the poop chair since last night. Maybe he's just a weak and sad person, a collection of shithole cells God meant to throw in the garbage, but accidentally implanted in Mary Trump's turkey incubator. We imagine that'd lead to a pretty constant state of anxiety and ennui.

Whatever it is, he's totally fucked right now. We were going to write a nice post about Trump's batshit interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo, but we were busy, and by the time we got to it, he had performed so many batshit feats that we're just going to stick them all in this one post.

Let's start with the fight he's trying to wage with US soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who in a now-viral video stated that she has no fuckin' interest in going to the White House to meet that idiot. He got into a quarrel with her on Twitter ... or at least with a Twitter account that didn't belong to her. It's now been replaced, in order that the adult president may shit-tweet at the soccer superstar who hurt his feelings, but Splinter grabbed the original:

The rant continued:

Right. And Megan Rapinoe just said win or lose, she has no interest in meeting your crusty ass, because no decent American would consider that an honor.

Besides, she has already been to the White House to meet a legitimately elected president:

By the by, the owner of the incorrect Megan Rapinoe account saw Trump's whining and told him to grow a dick and set it on fire:

Ya burnt!

But as we said, it was a whole day of batshit from Trump, so let's continue.
