GOP senator gets humiliated after touting Trump’s 43 percent approval rating

Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn is getting worried about his chances of being re-elected in 2020, and that’s making him cling to President Donald Trump like an infant holds tight to a blanket.

Tuesday morning, Senator Cornyn thought he’d try to life the spirits of his fellow Republicans by tweeting out a poll showing Trump’s approval rating reaching 43 percent:

Problem is, that same poll shows that 54 percent of Americans disapprove of the president, suggesting that math isn’t Cornyn’s strong suit, not to mention that 43 percent won’t win a national election.

Also, a look at the poll shows that while 56 percent of those surveyed said they approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, only 42 percent are pleased with the job he’s doing on his signature issue of immigration. A mere 37 percent said they’re pleased with how Trump responds to corruption in government.

Most presidents are much higher than 43 percent at this point of their first term in office, and that fact led many on Twitter to humiliate Cornyn with some basics when it comes to numbers:

Only in the upside-down world of GOP/Trumpian “logic” is 43 percent considered impressive. Makes you wonder what Cornyn will have to say if the number reaches 33 percent. He’ll probably want to have a ticker-tape parade.
