Disgusting Tyrant is obsessed with rating people and recently said that General Mattis is “the world’s most overrated general” He should check his own ratings here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_rankings_of_presidents_of_the_United_States#Siena_College_Research_Institute,_Presidential_Expert_Poll_of_2018 . The presidential scholars in the survey rated him the third worst president in US history. I maintain that he is overrated because he had a high score in the luck category. Luck? I have trouble understanding why luck should be a consideration. If not for that category, DT’s rating would be much lower.
