WASHINGTON, DC—The news of Donald Trump’s approval rating reaching 45% in one opinion poll has been labelled “historic” by White House officials, who today confirmed the President’s approval rating has risen above his IQ for the first time.
White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, refused to confirm Trump’s actual IQ but acknowledged he was the first president in U.S. history to reach the historic milestone, capping off a year of many firsts for America’s highest office.
“No President has ever done it before and all within his first 12 months. He just keeps surprising us all. It’s remarkable,” Sanders said. “President Trump is incredibly proud of himself and well he should be.”
With this being the only opinion poll to show Trump’s approval rating at 45%, there are also varying reports on the President’s IQ, with estimates ranging from as high as 44 to as low as minus 8.
Regardless, an understandably joyous Trump revelled in the news that he finally had the popularity to match his undoubted intelligence.
“Of course we all know I always had the brains, and OBVIOUSLY the looks, but now I have the popularity too. #TotalPackage” the President tweeted his 44 million followers.
“I’m getting numbers that no President has ever got,” he continued. “Barack could only dream of getting numbers like mine.”
“Obama was so unpopular,” Trump added, of the man with 92 million Twitter followers. “His approval rating NEVER went over his IQ once in 8 years. He never even came close. Pathetic!” Former President Obama did not reply to the tweet directly but did like it.
With such positive numbers across the board, Trump will now focus solely on his golfing handicap having had such little time to spend on the course so far as president.
