Narcissism is a hell of a drug, and Donald Trump has been high on it his entire life. That is unfortunate for all of us, since we have to live under this crazy, dangerous excuse for a presidency. In his latest rant, Trump goes back to a favorite line of complaint: That the press is mean to him, and that they loved President Barack Obama more.
Taking to Twitter, Trump whined:
“If President Obama made the deals that I have made, both at the Border and for the Economy, the Corrupt Media would be hailing them as Incredible, & a National Holiday would be immediately declared. With me, despite our record setting Economy and all that I have done, no credit!”
Here is the tweet, straight from The Donald’s Twitter account:
This fool actually just suggested that he deserves a national holiday. For what? Making America look foolish on the world stage on a daily basis, implementing policies designed to be as cruel as possible to immigrants, religious minorities, LGBTQ people, women, and everyone who is not straight, white, cisgender, male, and Christian? Emboldening white supremacists and fascists? Generally destroying the nation?
It really does not matter in the end. The way Trump’s mind works is dangerously bizarre, considering that he could literally end the world with one phone call if he wanted. As ridiculous as Trump’s latest Twitter whinefest is, there are things that are much more frightening that he does on a daily basis, and we would all do well to remember that.
