President Donald Trump released a hilarious video on his Twitter account on Friday that essentially declared himself to be president forever, in what is a giant troll aimed at the media and the Democratic Party.
The video features a cover from TIME Magazine that shows Trump campaign yard signs lasting well beyond 2020. The video then alters the cover to show the campaign campaign yard signs extending thousands of years into the future while “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from Peer Gynt, by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg plays in the background.
The video may be in response to Politico report today that once again speculated that Trump may not leave office if he loses in the 2020 election.
Alleged journalists, leftists, and members of the Democratic Party freaked out in response to the video.
Anya Parampil tweeted: “What I want to know is WHO conceptualized this insanity?!”
Emma Vigeland tweeted: “I’m not one to get riled up over Trump tweets, but this one is pretty damn scary. This man doesn’t believe in a democratic form of government, and now he’s putting feelers out there. He has to be defeated.”
Kathryn Watson tweeted: “What is happening”
Brooke Binkowski tweeted: “‘It’s just a joke'”
Rabia O’Chaudry tweeted: “Tyrants and narcissists always think they will live forever”
Seth Abramson tweeted: “What Trump and his fans misunderstand—because they experience reality on a different continuum—is that voters and media would allow basically any POTUS of either party to quip once or twice about a third (or more) term. Trump gets heat because THIS continuum thinks he’s unstable.”
Jeet Heer tweeted: “You know who else wanted to be a God-Emperor till the end of time?* Correct answer: Leto Atreides II. Baron Vladimir Harkonnen could also work.”
Steve Kiggins tweeted: “Are we a dictatorship now? What is this?”
Sasha Stone tweeted: “Never forget, folks. Trump didn’t WIN. We lost. We failed to stop him because we are purity seeking, deeply privileged, entitled folks who do not know how to suck it up and get the job done. Until we do we will keep losing.”
