Trump posted an Easter message — it’s the same, but at least MSM isn’t holding back on framing the idiocy as biographer Michael D’Antonio notes the post-president’s continued grifting, and CNN’s Jim Acosta weighs in.
“Yep. It’s Sally Field. You love me. You really love me,” D’Antonio said, referring back to the 1980s Oscar speech from the actress. “And you know, by the time Obama actually was a former president he was already two years into his project called My Brother’s Keeper. President Clinton doesn’t have a personal website. You go to the Clinton Foundation, and you see these initiatives all over the world. There is great value in the presidency if you want to do good. Donald Trump is going to find out, is there great value if you want to try and sort of turn people into gullible customers. Buy my greeting. Buy my tchotchkes. I think we should look for merchandising to start very soon.”
Acosta said he keeps thinking that Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. would come out and join Trump at the wedding. “It’s almost sad to look at. It is sad to look at.
“This would be — this would be his fat Elvis period,” D’Antonio joked. “You know, the president — President Trump used to think of him — himself as an Elvis type of character. And sadly we are in that era for him.”
