    Just look at this video; that is the behavior of an REAL president!

    Here also the rankings:

    Ask Americans who the best president has been in their lifetimes, and one man ranks significantly above all others—though he didn't always. Barack Obama won the top spot in the Pew Research Center survey, based on phone interviews with 2,000 US adults during the week of June 5-12; 44% of respondents ranked No. 44 as either the best or second-best president during their years on Earth.

    Bill Clinton came in second with 33%, while Ronald Reagan ranked third at 32%. Though Donald Trump gained only 19% of the vote, Courthouse News notes those numbers seem to align with how sitting presidents typically do in the Pew survey: In 2011, while he was still in his first term, Obama took in a 20% share.

    Here, the rankings based on the combined percentages of being selected as either a first or second pick:

    • Barack Obama, 44%
    • Bill Clinton, 33%
    • Ronald Reagan, 32%
    • Donald Trump, 19%
    • George W.

    Bush, 14%

    • John F. Kennedy, 12%
    • George HW Bush, 10%
    • Jimmy Carter, 4%
    • Dwight Eisenhower, 2%
    • Franklin Roosevelt, 1%
    • Richard Nixon, 1%
    • Lyndon Johnson, 1%
    • Harry Truman, 1%
    • Gerald Ford, 1%

    Before checking out the facebook vid, I said presidents should act and display integrity and a caring attitude, like Obama, or JFK.

    I’d take Nixon over Trump. That any adult would pick Trump in such a survey underscores the idiocy of the American populace.

    The qualifier is the best president in their lifetimes. One would expect the more recent presidents to rank higher on that qualifier. But Trump ranks only at 19 percent.

    The idiocy of the electoral college, Mrs. Clinton won the popular vote. Besides, no president in years past would act like Trump did today when he met Putin. (except Bush 43) when he invited Putin to his ranch.
