President Trump used his second commencement speech as an opportunity to whine about his own misfortunes which he manages to do whenever he takes the podium for any purpose.
As he spoke during the commencement ceremony in Connecticut for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Trump decided to speak to the graduating cadets who are heading to active duty and to use his own plight as a life lesson.
“Now I want to take this opportunity to give you some advice. Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not fair,” Trump told the audience who surely was expecting what was to come next. “You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Things will work out just fine.”
He then launched into his story of woes talking about how his treatment by the media has been historically unfair.
“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history — and I say this with great surety — has been treated worse or more unfairly,” the President began his whining. “You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”
And then he went to tout his election victory, “I guess that’s why I want to thank you. I guess that’s why we won.”
The remarks come as the fallout from the latest scandal embroils Trump’s administration and increasingly threatens his presidency. Just a day before, revelations surfaced that former FBI Director James Comey created contemporaneous memos of disturbing conversations that he had with the President. Excerpts from one of the memos, which were reported by the New York Times, if true, could amount to obstruction of justice on the part of the President.
