Tapper Takes Issue with Trump’s Self-Pity

“Every single one of the president’s wounds is self-inflicted. Every single one. I don’t really understand the propensity for self-pity at a time like this.” … “My second reaction is, four U.S. presidents have been actually literally assassinated and killed. But more broadly speaking, when it comes to a president that has been treated unfairly, I mean that president led the charge claiming that the first African-American president was born in Africa. Which is not only a charge that is false, but is not a little bit racist.”

— Jake Tapper, taking exception on CNN at President Trump’s claim that he’s been treated more unfairly than any other president in history.
