This probably could have been saved for after the election, but the Donald is nothing if not bold.

That's why few should be surprised when Trump decided he'd rate his children during a call-in interview this morning.

On Election Day.

It's a good a time as any, right?

Calling in to “Fox & Friends,” Trump talked about how proud he was of all of his children—even Tiffany—just “to a lesser extent”:

“I'm very proud of my children. I mean, I'm just looking at them right now as an example... but I'm very proud 'cause Don and Eric and Ivanka and, you know, to a lesser extent 'cause she just got out of school, out of college, but, uh, Tiffany, who's also been so terrific. I mean, they work so hard.”

Sorry, could you repeat that?

In fairness, Trump did say that he meant he was only less proud because she had just finished college, meaning she has less experience under her belt.

But parents generally don't feel the need to make such distinctions to others, many people would argue.

Especially if you're a presidential candidate.

In an election cycle that's been full of them, apparently it's still never too late for another November surprise.
