Donald Trump, still in campaign mode, held a rally in Ohio where he claimed that he is “more presidential” than anyone except Abraham Lincoln.
“And I say – great schools, smart guy – it’s so easy to act presidential,” Trump claimed. “But that’s not going to get it done.”
“With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office,” Trump claimed.
“It’s real easy,” Trump added.

Trump is putting himself on a really high pedestal that he does not belong on. Maybe he forgot about the other 44 presidents that were more presidential than him.
The internet were quick to respond to Trump:

No, Trump doesn't belong on Mount Rushmore.
He belongs behind a prison door.
