    Trump Compares Himself To A King

    We all knew for a long time that this POS didn't think of himself as a president serving the American people, he's such an egotistical narcissist that he thinks of himself as a King, and likely has wet dreams of being a real dictator some day. His cultist worshipers are thrilled to kneel for him, they have some worth in their lives now.


    President Donald Trump compared himself to a king Saturday with a quote by American philosopher and writer Ralph Waldo Emerson warning: “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.”

    Trump actually wrote “the king.”

    Critics went wild.

    Trump picked the quote in a tweet from a piece in The New York Times early this month warning that the angry, vengeful president would be dangerously unleashed once Senate Republicans acquitted him in the impeachment trial.

    For extra measure after the Emerson quote, Trump added: “The Greatest Witch Hunt in American history!”

    “Ralph Waldo Emerson seemed to foresee the lesson of the Senate Impeachment Trial of President Trump. ‘When you strike at the King, Emerson famously said, “you must kill him.’ Mr. Trump’s foes struck at him but did not take him down. A triumphant Mr.Trump emerges from the.....

    This may be the most sinister tweet Trump has ever posted. He is comparing himself with a king and threatening to use his powers for revenge on those who questioned his abuse of power. This after AG Barr said Trump’s tweets make it hard for him to do his job. Any response Mr. AG?

    He has a habit of actually being honest in the rare case he's admitting his flaws. It's kind of weird, I assume related to his narcissism. He seems to be rarely telling the truth here, that he agrees that he's vengeful and happy to abuse his power against his enemies list - anyone who followed the law against his crimes.

    I think Trump loves trolling the left.

    He does. It's what he spends his time and energy on instead of being President.

    Isn't it lovely that his supporters hate the left so much that they're happy to cheer on direct assaults on the pillars of democracy?

    Denying and disparaging the Constitutional authority of the House and the Senate as Congress assembled, from oversight and more formal Impeachment inquiries should be automatic grounds for Impeachment and removal from that Office of Public Trust.

    Agreed.

    No doubt you are correct because Trump is a troll.....and according to this thread, he considers himself King of the Trolls.

    Problem being he lacks the requisite intelligence for that. He as no filters, and just brays whatever pops into his head.

    It's why his team refuses to ever have him testify under oath.
    Well, he see this one particularly hot chick and not does she bag he slackjawed, but he lets a "Whoa" slip out

    Trolls aren't known for their intelligence. If they were, they wouldn't troll, they'd simply use logical and persuasion to convince others of the rightness of their actions.

    Consider the Communication skill differences between Alpha Males and Beta Males. It's easy to see Trump is a Beta Male and, therefore, why he uses Trolling instead of leadership, logic or intelligent persuasion.
