‘YOU ARE NOT A KING’ trends on Twitter after Trump suggests otherwise

Donald Trump is king of the bungle, but he’s not, in any formal sense, a monarch.  That didn’t stop him from suggesting it this morning in a tweet, though:

The quote is from a February 1 column by New York Times White House correspondent Peter Baker. Interesting that Trump didn’t quote this part of the article: “Impeachment will always be a stain on Mr. Trump’s historical record.”

Or this: “Even as they line up to acquit him, some Senate Republicans have acknowledged that the House managers prosecuting the case proved that Mr. Trump withheld $391 million in security aid to Ukraine as part of an effort to pressure it to announce political investigations into his domestic rivals.”

Regardless, the lesson that Trump did take away from the column was clear: He’s a de facto royal now.

And, needless to say, Twitter t’weren’t buying it:

Sorry, dipshit. We still have a republic. Though if we don’t vote this doofus out in November, we will be royally screwed.

Nope we’re stuck with him for 4+ more years. The fix is in. All powerful/monied are donating $500K which they wouldn’t if they knew it wasn’t a sure thing. It’s nice to dream though.

Donald is obsessed with money and avoiding prison. A new admin. will have a new Attorney General. Donald isn’t escaping justice and the legal community won’t forget how he abused the rule of law.
