‘Ready to be nuked now’: The internet pounds Trump for retweeting fake poll showing he’s more popular than Obama
President Donald Trump tweeted a six-day-old, unscientific poll that shows he’s more popular than former President Barack Obama.
The president tweeted out a complaint Thursday morning against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for his inability to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and he then retweeted an Aug. 4 post by Progress Polls before retweeting a “Fox & Friends” post about escalating tensions with North Korea.
Who is a better President of the United States? #ObamaDay

It is so embarrassing that Trump re-tweeted this absurdly bogus Twitter poll. And it reflects his all-consuming obsession with Obama. pic.twitter.com/wJrnRCiDzn

Trump retweeted a Twitter poll asking who was a better President between himself and Obama. The man is obsessed with Obama – so pathetic.

Trump is retweeting a fake online poll because all the real polls have him at 38% or less (one at 32%!) and the crybaby can't stand it! LOL

Waiting for Trump to tweet results of a self-generated Twitter poll next.

Can you imagine Obama tweeting this stuff? Trump is so classless it's unreal. That poll was rigged by 4chan bots btw
