Historians agree. And Democrats and Never Trumpers are shocked

satire warning

Today a survey of 1000 historians came out (a bigly number) rating US Presidents in their respective centuries and while there is some disagreements as to who the top 3 presidents are of the 19th Century; most say 1. Lincoln, 2 and 3 are varied between Jefferson, A. Jackson, Monroe and Madison.
There was less disagreement about the 20th Century 1 and 2 were Roosevelts (though which was better is disputed), third had four possibles: Truman, Reagan, LBJ and Clinton.
There was no disagreement by historians on the 21st Century US Presidents. They are in complete agreement that Donald Trump is the 3rd Greatest US President of the 21st Century.
"Trump better than Clinton and LBJ!" Sean Hannity began his show on Wednesday night.
"Take that Truman!" Trump tweeted almost immediately after the announcement
"See? Trump is the unanimous pick for 3rd best US President of the 21st Century." The couch sitters exclaimed. With Steve Doocy quickly pointing out, "This is huge! I mean, not even Ronald Reagan is a consensus 3rd best of his century." while the other two nodded in agreement.
"See?! My father is better in his century than Clinton was in his." Eric Trump told friends as they toasted the news with a common man's bottle of the most expensive wine imported from France.
Notables, such as Newt Gingrich, Paul Ryan, John Sununu and some drunken guy were quick to congratulate Trump. While his cabinet all immediately met and fawned over Trump's accomplishment.
"I don't think anyone has ever been given that kind of recognition so early in their presidency." HHS Secretary Tom Price pointed out. While Trump smiled and nodded in agreement.
"Yes. It is a great accomplishment. THIRD greatest US President of the 21st Century. "Just think what they'll be saying in 50 years."

Trump is in the top 50 Presidents of all time.

And will remain in that position for decades.
