Think about the nicest person you know. What is it about them that makes them so nice?
It could be that they're super thoughtful and selfless and are always looking for ways to make the world a better place.
According to our president, though, it's none of those things. Instead, he believes that the college you attend has a huge effect on how nice of a person you are.
Earlier today, President Trump held an impromptu press conference where he answered reporters' questions on a number of topics. He spent more than 15 minutes talking to the press while a helicopter waited to take him to a Dallas fundraiser.
via: GettyThat the impromptu press conference was held at all was kind of bizarre, but the things Trump chose to say during that press conference were on a whole 'nother level. He talked about the ongoing controversy about his phone call with a military widow. He talked about Senator Jeff Flake. He talked about uranium and Watergate.
He also complained about the way the media portrays him, saying they depict him as being "more uncivil" than he actually is.

Um, what?What does attending an Ivy League school have to do with being a civil person? It's almost as if he had nothing else to point to as proof that he's civil. Surprise, surprise. Trump did not elaborate on his perceived correlation between education and civility.
Needless to say, people are less than impressed with his comments.

During the press conference, Trump also claimed to have "one of the great memories of all time."
