Donald Trump sure has some flattering friends.

During a televised town hall with Fox NewsSean Hannity on Thursday, the president claimed a pal had told him he has to be “the most perfect person” because he was not brought down by the Russia investigation.

“Isn’t that true?” Trump asked a small audience packed with enthusiastic fans.

Trump did not name the friend. But the praise certainly sits up there with the president’s own previous self-aggrandizing descriptions of himself as “an extremely stable genius” and “really smart.”

Trump has also in the past compared himself to a king.

People on Twitter inevitably took the president to task over the boast:

His friend must have been the guy who looks him back in the mirror every morning.

Even Sean had trouble with that answer.
