Trump: ‘George Washington Would Have Had a Hard Time Beating Me Before the Plague’

President Donald Trump boasted this week that his poll numbers are surging to a point that former President George Washington would have had a difficult time beating him “before the plague came in.”

In an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, the president declared, “And we’re doing very well. I don’t know if you’ve seen, the polls have been going up like a rocket ship.”

He added, “Hey, I was, George Washington would have had a hard time beating me before the plague came in — before the China plague.”

Here’s that clip (starting at 12:30):

The RealClearPolitics aggregated polling has not shown Trump ahead nationally since they started compiling polls in September of 2019. Currently, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a roughly seven-point lead over Trump.

In the wide-ranging interview with Hewitt, Trump also laid into his former national security advisor John Bolton, who has since flipped on the president and written a tell-all.

Hewitt asked Trump about Bolton’s allegation that Trump gave the green light to Chinese president Xi Jinping on putting Muslim minorities in camps.

Trump responded “[Bolton is] a liar, and he’s just a sick person. You know, I put him there. Everyone said don’t, because he’s a nut job. I did it, and frankly, I used him, because every time I walked into a room with this guy, didn’t have too much conversation, didn’t know him very well.”

This is not the first time that Trump has compared himself to one of the Mt. Rushmore presidents. In a recent press conference, Trump declared, “I’ve done more for black Americans with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln.”

The last time that Trump notably nodded to America’s first president was during a July 4th speech in 2019 when he famously praised Washington’s Continental Army and mistakenly said that they “manned the air” and “rammed the ramparts, [the Army] took over the airports, it did everything it had to do.”


  1. I’ll grab the popcorn so I can read all the triggered leftist commenters who can’t take a joke.

  2. Trump knows just what to say to get the Democrats and the Liberal media going. No matter how many times he does it, they still take the bait.

  3. John stopped drinking from the toilet long enough to give us a short delusional comment. Gen. Delusion thinks he knows Washington.

  4. I bet Trumps Air Force is better than George Washington’s too. Likely better than most presidents Air Force too. This guy Trump is just “Has the world by the ass” as a talk show host David Letterman said once in sarcastic reply to Trump saying he was doing quite a lot of business with Russia.. (2013′).
    As well his several marriages keep him in high regards with the evangelical churches…Especially the latest wive posing nude with an automatic rifle. The online nude photos even give a priest thrills…

  5. The creatures who infest this country now have no idea who George Washington was, other then some old white dude who’s statues must come down.

  6. trumpuke is a very deluded TRAITOR with

    his head permanently locked in his rectum.
