Donald Trump humiliated himself during his Coast Guard Academy commencement address by whining that no other politician in history has been treated more unfairly.
Trump complained to the cadets that he had not been treated well as president, the Los Angeles Times reports. Um, no other president in modern US history has been a pathological liar.
Trump said, “Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history and I say this with great surety; no politician has been treated worse or more unfairly.”
Gee, let’s see…. Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, James Garfield and John F. Kennedy were assassinated. Trump led the birther movement seeking to delegitimize Barack Obama. Bill Clinton was relentlessly hounded.
An 'extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @BarackObama's birth certificate is a fraud.

“You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve,” Trump said. Um, yes. Like being president.
Trump also bragged to the Coast Guard grads about t how much he has “saved them” on the F-35 and Ford class carriers. Um, the Coast Guard operates neither.
Mr. Trump chose to use his speech to insult the graduates who will defend their country by whining about how bad the press is treating him. Um, never mind that he has threatened the press on many occasions, even telling former FBI Director James Comey that reporters should be jailed.
Donald Trump continues to humiliate himself and this country every day. How much more can we bear as Americans? Democrats, Republicans, independents, and all in between must agree that this man is unfit to serve as the president. He is a national security risk. Enough is enough.
