President Donald Trump is an egotistical douchebag who thinks the world should revolve around him.
For any doubters in the audience, consider this as supporting evidence: He’s been asking White House staffers what it takes to place a president on Mount Rushmore, according to an article from Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman of the New York Times:
“After all, the president had told her in the Oval Office that he aspired to have his image etched on the monument. And last year, a White House aide reached out to the governor’s office with a question, according to a Republican official familiar with the conversation: What’s the process to add additional presidents to Mount Rushmore?”
Rest assured, if there was any possible way Trump could have his own image next to Washington, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Lincoln he would have already ordered that it happen. He’s that much of a pompous ass. In his own warped mind, he’s one of the greatest (if not the all-time greatest) president in American history.
But beyond the massive ego of Trump is the fact that he had to ask others to find out about the process of getting something changed about a national monument. He’s got a smart phone, but he couldn’t even be bothered to do a Google search and find out the answer for himself.
All of this, however, fits in perfectly with other things Trump as speculated about or even said out loud:
- Calling himself a “stable genius.”
- Repeatedly bragging that he did well on a test that a trained duck could pass.
- Insisting that he’s a great businessman who knows “the art of the deal.
When all is said and done and Trump is a former president, he’ll be lucky if anyone names a flagpole in his honor. And even if that happens, that flagpole will have to fly the flags of the United States and Russia.
