On Tuesday morning, Trump finally bestowed upon his predecessor the “honor” of his very own nickname in a tweet oozing with insecurity.
Thank you to Rasmussen for the honest polling. Just hit 50%, which is higher than Cheatin’ Obama at the same time in his Administration.

Notwithstanding the fact that Trump’s actual approval rating is about 40% – Rasmussen, a conservative-leaning pollster, errs as much as 11 points higher than other polls – the nickname was especially ironic. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel pointed out the fact that he called Obama “cheatin’” on the same day that Trump and his lawyer tried to force porn star Stormy Daniels into private arbitration over a $130,000 hush money payment for their affair.

“He called Obama ‘Cheatin’ Obama’ on the day his lawyers are trying to move the case of a porn star they paid $130,000 to not talk about having sex with him just after his wife had a baby into private arbitration,” Kimmel said. “This is the genius of Donald Trump. It’s the ‘I am rubber, you are glue’ principle.”
“Although in this case there was no rubber, at least according to Stormy Daniels,” Kimmel joked.
We could point out that Trump has a guilty conscience, but we’ll leave that to Melania.
