Trump Tweets Insane Video Implying He Will Be President Forever

Trump Tweets Insane Video Implying He Will Be President Forever

What does a President of the United States do to cap off a 24-hour period in which he came within minutes of bumbling into a shooting war in the Middle East and was credibly accused of rape for the sixteenth time?

If he is Donald Trump, he posts a web video implying he will remain president unto eternity, forever and ever, world without end, amen.

This is clear trolling of his haters, as evidenced by that “EEEEEEE” you could read as a human shriek that replaces calendar years at the end of that animation. But it is also rather incredible chutzpah from a president whose approval rating has been stuck around the 40 percent mark for his entire two and a half years in office. A president whose odds of winning re-election are notably lower than one would expect for a chief executive with a strong economy. (Though his incumbency still makes him the odds-on favorite.)

At least someone is having fun.
