President Donald Trump called into Fox & Friends on Thursday morning for a sprawling interview where he blasted former FBI Director James Comey, brought up old gripes about the 2016 election, and praised Kanye West.

The president also suggested to those watching that he didn’t get First Lady Melania Trump a birthday present–only a “beautiful card.”

Trump, who was practically screaming on the phone at points, seemed to relish the time to speak directly to his supporters through the program. The Fox hosts tried at multiple points to interject, but the president jumped from topic to topic that seemed to be on his mind.

The last question from the Fox & Friends was about how Trump would grade his presidency so far–and his answer was exactly what you’d expect.

“I’m fighting a battle against a horrible group of deep-seated people,” Trump said, adding: “I’ve been able to escape that cloud… I would give myself an A+. Nobody has done what I’ve been able to do and I did it despite the fact that I have a phony cloud over my head that doesn’t exist.”

It was a lot to take in.

Fox & Friends host Steve Doocey ended the interview by saying the president “had a lot to say.”

He’s not wrong.
