President Trump held another huge rally yesterday … this time in Panama City Beach, Florida. One consistent element in all the President’s rallies … he loves to push the buttons of the liberal press, and this time he joked that the media would go crazy if he said he would still be around as President in 10 or 14 years.
“See he is a despot, he is a despot,” Trump joked as he mocked what he envisioned to be the media’s reaction.
Watch for yourself, as the President baits the hook, throws out the line, and even warns the “fish” what he’s doing to them …

CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted that Trump was joking, but he really didn’t seem so sure …

One response to Acosta was on-point …
He just says that to bother idiots. Did it bother you?

And another …
He literally predicted you would tweet this and you still walked right into it. pic.twitter.com/sxsrY0amfq

Nothing like a joke aimed at the haters, conjuring up images of a Trump era lasting beyond two terms.
The President’s rally comment seemed to be a follow-up to his Sunday retweet of a post that suggested time be added on to his presidency to compensate for the length of the special counsel’s investigation. Trump also then later tweeted …
Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stolen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back…..

The lefty media predictably melted down earlier this week as a result, so it seems probable that Trump had the idea that he could stir that pot again on Wednesday just for the fun of it.
It has certainly created pandemonium among the social media zombies …
We NEED a patriot before all is lost. Trump has pulled press passes.He talks about not leaving office for 10-14 years. He has private convos with Putin.Refuses any congressional oversight/ignores subpoenas. He laughs about shooting asylum seekers. He is going full authoritarian https://t.co/eubBIkA4Rv

You are losing your country. Every day Trump tells us what he is going to do. And then he does it. And everybody is stunned, surprised, angry …
Trump will start a war in some country and then try and stage a coup in the US. He will stay on 10-14 years.
It’s coming ?

Anyone knows he is not joking re his comments about China and the extension of power there, or with his I need 10-14 years in office, etc. https://t.co/1RYB6Cvphn
The sad thing is, his base and @GOP enablers will continue to support and cheer him over the constitution. https://t.co/qvyWFrVriF

Every single day the Dems don’t DO something, he’s further emboldened & enabled, now even talking about staying 10-14 years.
Even if we get rid of Trump, what about the next guy?

This should not be treated as a joke. Remember, he also said that he could shoot someone in 5th avenue and won’t be arrested? He think’s he’s Teflon and can do anything he wants. #ImpeachTheMF https://t.co/vMvvyJu00G

I just like have to say if you don’t understand how I N S A N E it is that Trump “joked” that he might stay in office for maybe 10 or 14 years you did not pay attention to history. He wants to be a dictator. He wants to change who we are fundamentally as a country.
