Trump Actually Gets Defended on Twitter After NYT Presidential Survey Naming Him Worst Ever

There are times when it seems no criticism of President Donald Trump would go too far among a large segment of blue check Twitter. But a New York Times-published survey of political scientists just might have done the trick.

In the poll which ran on the Times website Monday, 170 members of the American Political Science Association’s Presidents and Executive Politics section ranked Trump as the worst president of all-time after just thirteen months in office. This ranking placed Trump beneath perennial basement dwellers such as James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, and Warren Harding.

Even some of Trump’s fiercest critics thought this ranking went a bit too far. Here’s a sampling of the reaction from social media.
