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.
Because I ♥ my readers, my latest e-book Dear Pr*sident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump, is currently on sale for a redonkulous 99 cents. It’s my (extended) Valentine’s Day gift to you! It shoots up to (a still-redonkulous) $1.99 two days from now, and then back to regular price (a moderately redonkulous $2.99) on February 21. Meanwhile, you can find all my acclaimed Trump-trashing treatises at Amazon. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief.
