On Friday, President Trump released a hilarious video proclaiming himself president forever.
That would be “4EVA.”
It’s called…what’s that word I learned last year? Oh, yeah: trolling.
And man, you know it’s gonna burn some people up.
Surely many won’t get the joke.
The video showcases a cover from (doubtlessly) Trump’s favorite magazine — Time — touting the billionaire’s presidency in 2028, 2044…foreva and eva! For thousands of years!
He’s the perpetual president — as they’ve all feared he’d be!

Ahhh, I’m laughing myself right now.
As pointed out by The Daily Wire, the clip may be in response to a Politico story of supreme goofiness:

But it doesn’t have to be: Nuts have been cautioning us about an eternal Trump presidency from the beginning (check out this craziness). Even nuts in Congress.
Here are some of the online responses.
What I want to know is WHO conceptualized this insanity?! https://t.co/wKcUxxE9Y6

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. https://t.co/nPyXQqxdOY

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. https://t.co/uAmfZX2UBo

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. https://t.co/sv08bz3u0w

Is that a threat? Are you threatening the Constitution and our Government? This will not end well. You can lie cheat and steal (apparently Barr says that's OK and we are still waiting for Congres to address this) but you will never end Democracy! pic.twitter.com/RPZCONNhzD
