MSNBC AM Joy host Joy Reid ridiculed Donald Trump over his obsession with former President Obama’s popularity in a tweet he posted on Sunday. Instead of talking about the seven U.S. sailors who died following the collision of the USS Fitzgerald off Japan, he stunk up Twitter with lies about his poll numbers being better than Barack Obama’s at this point during his presidency.
“Trump also tweeted about his poll numbers this morning, citing a new poll that puts his approval rating at 50 percent and saying that’s higher than O’s numbers,” Reid said. She added, “Obsessed with President Obama much?”
Reid then showed a graphic of Trump’s approval ratings in other polls, clearly way below the 50 percent Rasmussen claims. Reid said, “See if you can spot the outlier.” Hah.
By the way, FiveThirtyEight gives Rasmussen a C+. In other words, their polls are shitty.
