Donald Nero

"You know when Abraham Lincoln made that Gettysburg Address speech, the great speech, you know he was ridiculed?" Trump said during a rally in Billings, Mont., citing the speech that Lincoln gave on a battlefield near Gettysburg, Pa., during the Civil War.

"And he was excoriated by the fake news. They had fake news then. They said it was a terrible, terrible speech."

Trump said the speech only became widely revered 50 years after Lincoln's death.

"Fifty years after his death they said it may have been the greatest speech ever made in America," Trump said. "I have a feeling that's going to happen with us. In different ways, that's going to happen with us."

50 years after your death, people will be ridiculing you for your ineptness, your narcissism, your inhumanity, and your tiny, tiny hands.

I think Trump has the best chance of any president of being remembered 100 years from now. He will go down as one of the biggest jokes in history…

A lot more people know the names Nero and Caligula than the names of any quietly competent Roman Emperors.
