The guy that called Bitcoin the ‘best investment of his life’ right before it tanked has copped it on social media after claiming the United States is the greatest country in the world.

Yes, in a year that has seen deadly mass shootings in schools and the abolition of some pretty major and basic rights for women, Jake Paul reckons America is apparently the best place there is.

“America is the greatest country in the world, no nation compares even when times are bad,” Paul said on Twitter.

“Happy 4th and God bless America.”

People were pretty quick to point out that other Western parts of the world don’t struggle with the slaughter of children at school.

Others pointed out that women aren’t having their fundamental rights revoked in Australia and the UK.

One Twitter user said: “Can’t even lie the UK stomps on the US, better healthcare, better education system, better standards of living and we probably have far more equality than anywhere else.”

Another added: “I don’t know how exactly to determine which country is the best… but maybe start with a country where children aren’t hunted down and slaughtered in schools? A country where blacks people aren’t being publicly executed purely for being black. Just a thought.”

A third just went straight for the jugular by listing the problems faced by the US: “Highest rate of poverty in the developed world. Highest rate of infant poverty in the developed world. 400 per cent more likely to be murdered in the USA than any other developed nation. No healthcare. A child is more likely to be murdered at school than anywhere else on planet earth.”

Another simply stated: “Your women can’t even decide what to do with THEIR bodies.”

Some branded Americans as the ‘blind victims of propaganda’.

One user said: “It’s literally free, most places don’t even have freedom of speech. It ain’t perfect but it’s the closest you’ll get from having total freedom which is extremely important.”

Another added: “What country do you have more freedom? In no other country do you have the freedom of speech.”

Some just chucked a link in the comments to the World Freedom Index, in which the US does not even make the top 10 freest countries in the world.

Paul, however, put that tweet out into the world and just dipped. Is he trolling us? Or just here to start fights? It’s hard to tell. Maybe he’s off buying more Bitcoin.
