Just when you think it can’t get any funnier or any more cartoonish, it invariably does.
A couple of weeks ago, Donald Trump invited a trio of highly sought after political strategists to the White House. That trio consisted of:
- Ted Nugent
- Sarah Palin
- Kid Rock
If you missed it, here’s the visual:
After convening over some important papers, Nugent, Palin, and Rock took a few minutes to pose in front of Hillary Clinton’s portrait. They were characteristically classy about it:
Shortly thereafter, Trump was meeting with three Reuters reporters in the Oval Office and, seemingly out of the clear blue, he “interrupted himself” to hand out three placemat-ish maps depicting his Electoral College victory. Here’s the visual from that bizarre spectacle:
What do all of these things have in common, you ask?
Well, apparently Trump has now made that Electoral College map into a giant poster, which he then framed, and which, according to reports, he’s now planning on hanging in the White House.
From The Hill:
President Trump is planning on hanging a map displaying his 2016 Electoral College victory in the White House, according to a report.
One America News Network White House reporter spotted the framed map being carried through the White House by a Trump staffer.
“Spotted: A map to be hung somewhere in the West Wing,” the reporter tweeted.
Trump has often brought up his election victory over Hillary Clinton in the months since he took office. In April, the Washington Post’s White House bureau chief reported that Trump had asked the Post to run the election map on the front page of their newspaper.
Days before, Trump interrupted another interview with a Reuters reporter to pass out copies of the map showing his victory.

So it’s not enough that Kid Rock and Ted Nugent get to pose in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton like they’re doing a photoshoot for a rap album, now Trump is going to go a step further in making a mockery of the White House walls by hanging up a map of his Electoral College win.
Again, “just when you thought it couldn’t get any more cartoonish.”
For a little added humor, here’s a screenshot of the comments string on the Breitbart version of this “story”…
