Trump to receive Wile E. Coyote Award for being a genius

I’m often criticized by the Trump cult for failing to recognize the so-called good things about Donald Trump. Well, after a time of quiet reflection, I have concluded that they’re right.

Following Trumps Twitter rant addressing the claims made in Michael Wolff’s book, Fire and Fury, which contains quotes from White House insiders who question Trump’s mental fitness, it’s with great pride that we announce the selection of Donald J. Trump as the recipient of our first ever Wile E. Coyote Award for “mental stability and being, like, really smart.” Additionally, Trump was selected for the achievements that helped him reach the self-described status of “genius….and a very stable genius at that.”

The creation of this award originated from an episode of a classic Looney Toons cartoon staring Wile E. Coyote and Bugs Bunny, where in the opening scene Wile E. informs Bugs that he doesn’t stand a chance against his genius.

Trump received bonus points from our distinguished panel of judges (i.e. me) for possessing another of Wile E. Coyote’s assets–a brain. Wile E. firmly believes in the adage “Have Brain-Will Travel.” As you may recall, it was during his campaign that we learned how Trump created his foreign policy only after holding discussions with himself and his “good brain.”

When Wile E. becomes dissatisfied with calling himself a genius because it fails to reflect how truly wonderful he believes himself to be, he begins to refer to himself as “super genius.” In the last scene of the cartoon, Wile E. has become so enamored with himself that he fails to notice how Bugs has put him directly in front of an oncoming train.

In a way, this scene is a perfect picture of the Trump presidency. As is often the case when dealing with individuals suffering from the affliction of narcissism, it’s not uncommon to see them become so self-absorbed that they grow unaware of their surroundings. As the Narcissist-in-Chief continues spending most of his time focused only on himself, it’s only a matter of time before he is mowed down by the trainload of real issues facing America. Sad.

There may be those who question our use of a cartoon character to recognize Trump’s achievement, but considering how childish and cartoonish Donald Trump’s presidency has been, we decided that it was appropriate.

However, this is a time for recognizing something good about the president, and in that spirit I hope you’ll join me in extending hearty congratulations to Donald J. Trump for earning the Wile E. Coyote Award.

Well done, super genius! Well done!
