A+ In the White House, F- Everywhere Else
The president’s self-proclaimed gold star shines once again. In recent news, Donald Trump rated himself a 10/10 effort for his response to Puerto Rico’s hurricane disaster. Trump’s ’10’ rating still leaves 78 percent of the island’s residents without electricity and only 72 percent have access to drinkable water. One can only imagine, if Trump gave a mere 9 effort by his standards, Puerto Rico wouldn’t even exist anymore. That being said, here’s a comprehensive list of the times Trump was truly 10 out of 10.
10. Diplomacy with North Korea
Because his predecessors couldn’t deal with Kim Jong Un or his dad for the last, uhm, 25 years, was it? Obviously, 10 out of 10 for the Don for taking out his nukes for measurement.
9. Repealing and replacing Obamacare
Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare with the Graham-Cassidy bill died on the floor of the Senate this past month. According to Trump, the bill failed because one of the votes was in the hospital and there wasn’t enough time. Besides that, the bill surely would have passed.
8. Draining the Swamp
It appears Trump never put the stopper over the drain…down goes the swamp and everyone else, too. Sean Spicer, drained. Stephen Bannon, drained. Reince Priebus, drained. Michael Flynn, drained. Katie Walsh, drained. The Mooch, drained. And that’s just to name a few of Trump’s swamptastic staff to get sucked down the drain.
7. His Golf Stroke
Hole in one.
6. His Inauguration
By Donald Trump’s standard, his January 2017 inauguration was the most attended inauguration in the history of, like, ever. So packed even, that people had to fight for standing room.
5. His Handshake with Emmanuel Macron
10 out of 10 because it lasted longer than 10…seconds. And 20.
4. Twitter reaction time to NFL protesters
Reaction time on fleek, President Trump never misses a rating, or a chance to scold grown men for protesting their rights.
With Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have “tanked,” in fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!

3. Helping the LGBTQ community
Since his promise to fight for the LGBTQ community, Donald Trump has out-shone his efforts. Just take banning transgenders from the military: why fight when you could just be fabulous, he says.
2. Signing Bills
In the first 100 days, Spicer claimed Trump had signed more bills than any of his predecessors. Roosevelt signed 76, but that’s beside the point. Though Trump has signed a good number, none of the 28 bills were major pieces of legislation, meaning they’re essentially worthless to the American public.
1. Dealing with Climate Change
Trump’s 10 out of 10 response to climate change simply means ignoring it exists. Can’t get a bad rating if it’s not real, amirite? Stephen Hawking said Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement “could push Earth over the brink.” Psshhh, what does the smartest man on the planet know?
