Trump says he may build his presidential library on one of his own properties

Because why should he stop grifting us all just because he’s out office?

I didn’t watch the entire Donald Trump/Chuck Todd interview because I’d scheduled a colonoscopy. I wasn’t due for one, but it seemed preferable to watching this, and the horse vet was able to squeeze me in at the last minute. So to speak.

But I have watched clips and read excerpts.

Somehow, amid the raging tempest of shart-slurping crazy, this bit slipped under the radar:

TODD: Have you thought about a presidential library?

TRUMP: I’m so busy, I know a lot of people mention it to me, the presidential library. I’m so busy …

TODD: Do you know where yet you’d want it?

TRUMP: I have a lot of locations, actually.

TODD: I know you do.

TRUMP: The nice part, I don’t have to worry about buying a location.

TODD: Would you want it at one of your properties?

TRUMP: I’ve been treated so great in Florida, you know the win in Florida. I’ve been treated so great in so many states.

TODD: I take it you’d want your library where your people would go.

TRUMP: Well, my people are going to a lot of different places. My people are great. I think somebody said, I read this morning, I had the greatest base ever in politics, and I really believe that.

A few notes:

  1. You are not busy, Tweets McGee. Sell that twaddle someplace else.
  2. Maybe they can put his presidential library in that Ark Adventure theme park. They need the business, and it’s the same customer base.
  3. After an arsonist burns down your house without permission and then sends you a bill to cover his per diem, you sure as hell don’t want to keep paying him extra fees for the rest of his life.
  4. Why would there be a Trump presidential library? Way to confuse his followers. “Let’s see, it says ‘Trump’ on it, but it also says ‘library.’” It’s like having Larry the Cable Guy open for the Vienna Philharmonic.
  5. Is Mike Pence physically shrinking? He looks like the third Russian nesting doll down from Original Mike Pence. Does one’s body shrink in lockstep with one’s soul?

Sadly, Trump is lowering the bar so much, we may never recover. President Camacho would actually be a marked improvement at this point.

Udey, Qusey, Sparkle P***y, & Natasha. White Supremacists as pall bearers. David Duke can give the eulogy. Empty streets as far as the eye can see. Interred in his Library in Siberia with books of tweets.

If Trump builds his own library (which presumably would not, then, be run or managed by the National Park Service), it will assuredly be a P.R. display, not in anyway, shape or form an historical presentation. HOWEVER, since the papers of the U.S. President belong to the United States of America, it is doubtful that the National Park Service and historical entities of the US would agree to giving Trump total control over the “message” and tone of the thing that Trump wants to build. So we would have an impasse. What could Trump create if he could not have… Read more »

He should build it in Moscow, you know that place he never has, never did, and never will have any business going on.

Just so long as the Presidential Library does not use one dime of public funding. Of course, the contents of tRump’s library will be so private that there will be no public admittance due to Fifth Amendment concerns.

If he does ,he will bill the government. And charge admission.
And who would want to go there ?
And it’s a bit presumptuous to speak of
a library at this time . He could post his “wall “
of his lies. That would require a large area to
properly display them . He could also post
a list of “his best people”. And ladies that accused him of rape , Like wanted posters on wall in the in the FBI BUILDING!!!

I hope he builds it soon so I can vandalize it while I still can. A brass plaque in front with some of his biggest whoppers on it would be fitting. A library for in honor of a guy who has never read a book is a bit of a head scratcher.
