“No politician in history… has been treated worse.” -Donald Trump

Addressing graduates at the United States Coast Guard Academy this morning, our incredibly sensitive President once again took the opportunity to go on at length about his victimization at the hands of America’s intellectual elite. “No politician in history… has been treated worse,” he told the young men and women before him, before launching into a diatribe about how difficult his life has been… And it got me thinking about a few politicians who, one could argue, had it almost as bad.

I could go on, but I’m tired, and I suspect you get the point. For what it’s worth, had I gone on, I would have included Putin critic Denis Voronenkov, but I don’t think many of you would have recognized him.

    You beat the BBC. (http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-39961362)

    “Historians suggest ‘more unfairly’ treated politicians than Trump”

    This include this from Dan Snow‏, though.

    “Well, the Emperor Valerian was captured in battle, enslaved, used as a foot-stool, forced to drink molten gold and then skinned and stuffed.”

    I like Charles Pierce’s comment on Trump’s tweet “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”.

    Pierce replies: “This guy was mentored by Roy Freaking Cohn. What an ingrate.”
