WaPo: If praising President Trump were a contest, the top contestant would surely be, well, Trump.
“I went to an Ivy League college,” Trump said Oct. 25. “I was a nice student. I did very well. I’m a very intelligent person.”
“One of the great memories of all time,” Trump also said, pointing to his temple.
“There has never been a 10-month president that has accomplished what we have accomplished,” Trump said of his record on Nov. 29. “That, I can tell you.”
But in the Trump praise game, the president faces a worthy opponent — Vice President Pence. During their first year in office, Pence has shown he knows a thing or two about cheering on his boss. During a Cabinet meeting last week, the vice president praised Trump about every 12 seconds for three minutes straight.
