Trump Makes Creepy Twitter Post Thanking Pundit For Being Ready To ‘Die Happy’ Thanks To Him

Concurrent to the president obsessing with going after anyone who dares speak a word against him, the president loves to soak up praise wherever he can find it. He went so far as to hold a series of rallies after winning the presidency that certainly facilitated such a thing on his part.

Against that backdrop, the president took to Twitter early Sunday to thank a particular pundit for expressing support for his administration.

This pundit, Mary Matalin, switched to the Libertarian Party in 2016, but now she says that she supports the president to the point of saying that she can “die happy now.”

Like some sort of creepy wannabe messiah, the president touted that comment from Matalin in a Twitter post this Sunday, writing:

‘“I can die happy now with Trump Job performance,” stated Mary Matalin. “A great overall President, stunning!” Thank you Mary.’

Is the president unaware of the creepy overtones here, to put it bluntly? It is as if he is eager to either become ruler for life or have his supporters just go ahead and “die happy” in the meantime.

That kind of devotion should be at least a bit disconcerting for a member of a democratic society, but here the president is touting it as essentially what he wants and is happy to accept.
