Donald Trump really wants to be important. Well, he really wants to be a dictator. But with that comes importance, right?
Donald’s ego has a tendency to swell to such proportions, fairly regularly, that we often literally end up with viral hashtags on social media reminding him that “YOU ARE NOT A KING.” This is the United States of America, and no matter how badly he wants it to, that’s just not how things work over here.
So to soothe his poor, hurt feelings over the fact that he’ll simply never quite stack up to the likes of his idols such as Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin, living in a world where people idolize and revere him at the risk of beheading should they not, Trump has been forced to look for other ways to pacify his ever-inflating ego.
And it seems now that he’s looking to placate himself in a place he knows he’ll be surrounded by his own people — the Daytona 500.
Fox News Chief White House Correspondent John Roberts reported that Donald is itching to take his presidential limo, dubbed “The Beast,” for a lap around the Daytona International Speedway before the race gets underway:
SCOOP: Multiple Sources tell @FoxNews that @realDonaldTrump is planning to take a lap at the @DISupdates Daytona International Speedway in the “Beast” presidential limo ahead of the Daytona 500. It’s not 100%, but that is the plan at the moment.

Fox Business has also reported that Trump will be serving as the grand marshal of the NASCAR Cup Series season opener.
Unsurprisingly, social media users had a plethora of thoughts:
nothing more badass than riding in the back of a limo while it drives around in a circle!

People are dying because they can’t afford insulin. And this is how Trump spends his time. Disgraceful.

Apologies in advance to the race track for the weight damage this will inflict

Can’t this guy just give us all a break from the endless attention seeking. It’s exhausting.

If NASCAR wants to guarantee my Democratic Dad doesn’t watch their races again, this is a great way to do it.

It seems as though Trump is doing his best to live it up in the few safe spaces he has left. He knows he’ll be booed out of pretty much anywhere else he goes.
