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.
