Sitting in front of the legendary statue of Abraham Lincoln in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump ranted about how he is treated by the press, saying that he's treated worse than Lincoln. The question he was responding to was about being more bipartisan.


"They always said nobody got treated worse than Lincoln, I believe I am treated worse," he said.

Lincoln was assassinated on April 15, 1865. Trump may feel like he's being shot at by the press, but he's still very much alive.

Twitter responded to the comments with eye-rolling fact-checks and disgust.
