President Donald Trump made excuses for his consistently poor approval ratings, as he readied to depart from a state visit to the United Kingdom.
Trump still has never cracked 50 percent approval rating, and he currently sits underwater in every major poll — with an average of 43.7 percent approval and 53 percent disapproval, according to Real Clear Politics.
The president, however, insists it’s not his fault.
“If the totally Corrupt Media was less corrupt,” he griped, “I would be up by 15 points in the polls based on our tremendous success with the economy, maybe Best Ever! If the Corrupt Media was actually fair, I would be up by 25 points. Nevertheless, despite the Fake News, we’re doing great!”

Other social media users explained why they hated him.
It’s the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Glad to see your priorities. #DDay75

Give it a rest. It's D day today and we're commemorating that. Show a little dignity and decorum for 24 hours. You're the 72 year old leader of the free world not a hysterical teenager bitching about how unfair everything is.

You’re just saying random numbers.

Wow, 15 points, 25 points. I just can't wait for the wholly accurate Donald Trump predictive polling company to finally be announced. 😂

Approval rating is based on more than just the economy. It doesn't matter how good the job numbers look if you're still an execrable human being.

So it’s a bit like the huge crowds that welcomed you in #London ? The only crowds were those demonstrating against you.

Maybe try some politics of inclusion not constant division. Just a thought.

Can you go one single day without whining? Just one day would be nice. Some of us need a break.
