Donald J. Trump Presidential Library

What will it look like?

I wonder if these Presidential repositories hold social media activity. There's already a spoof Donald Trump Presidential Twitter Library but no word on whether the real thing will do it.

Art of the Deal, Think Like a Champion, All Quiet On the Western Front, apparently one of his favorite books he didn't write.

Maybe a couple of his photographs as president, Fox News and OANN memorabilia, perhaps a kiosk next to the front door that sells MAGA items.

I expect that the Trump library will have several coloring books that Trump completed while he was attending National Security meetings during his time as president.

I proposed this in another thread.

It should be a nice, tasteful marble pillar. On the front of it should be a laser etched screenshot of a Tweet from Donald J. Trump that reads "This message does not meet the standards of our community."

With some benches around it and maybe a nice reflecting pool because those are always nice.

Photographs? Too banal.

Paintings! Lots of paintings! All done in the style of Thomas Gainsborough's The Blue Boy.

You know we could also do this the other way.

The Donald J. Trump Presidential Library. An absolutely top tier, state of the art library with every major work on the signs of and how to fight fascism, corruption in government, proper pandemic response, the dangers of a post-fact world, cult tactics, etc, etc....

And just do it all 100% straight. Just let the irony speak for itself and never once acknowledge that just makes it so much more delicious.

Presidential Library FAQ by Slate

Presidential libraries are hybrid creatures: part scholarly archive,
part celebration, part privately funded, part run by the government.
Presidential libraries are repositories for the papers and records generated
by a president during his term in office. They are also museums that have
permanent and temporary exhibits, lectures and seminars, and gift shops.

Who pays for a presidential library?

Both private citizens and taxpayers. Before any bricks get laid, a private
foundation is created to raise the money for the both the building and an
endowment to run special programs and exhibits. In order to keep former
presidents from erecting another Great Pyramid in their honor, the government
requires that the bigger the square footage, the bigger the endowment. Once
the building is dedicated, the library is turned over to the National Archives
and Records Administration, which runs it, paying for both the staff, such
as a director and archivists–who are federal employees–and much of the
maintenance.

Oh. I thought Trump had to pay for it all.

He doesn't know what a library is.
He might pay for a museum of sorts to commemorate the golden age of the 2016-2020 President Trump Presidency. It will be devoted to all his achievements, both his actual achievements and those he takes credit for, and the negative portrayal of his enemies, particularly Obama.

Funding will probably come in large part from gullible Trump supporters, and after a few years it will inevitably go bankrupt.

Someone who's never been inside a library, couldn't spell the word, has read a total of three books in his entire life, and whose complete written output takes up an A4 page written in large Sharpie?

This thread should definitely be in Humour - the idea is a joke, and the only people who might go to it can't read.

I have heard that this is the idea of Jared and Ivanka - that it will be basically a museum where they charge for admission.

Yes, it would take Trumpets to not realize the folly of having to pay to enter a library.

You forget his tweets, which makes him more prolific than James Joyce with his Ulysses:

Quote:
In the 1,020 days since he took office, President Trump’s Twitter account has posted 266,055 words. Ulysses, which runs about 780 pages, has 264,564. That’s using the same measure of counting words with the freely available digital version of the tome on Project Gutenberg. (How one counts words is slightly fungible depending on, for example, on how one considers hyphens and contractions, but my figure is very close to various other tallies).

See, this is why it's nearly impossible to make satire about Trump and his family and regime. Whenever you think you have an idea so crazy and unreal it's actually funny, they go and do it for real.

It reminds me of that cartoon I once read where an artist sits at his desk and his wife walks in and says "sorry, but that idea you had for a Trump cartoon just happened".

A4? What kind of pinko commie socialist paper is that? We use proper American 8.5x11, sized in proper American inches!

Mar a Lago will be transformed into his Library where golf carts transport people to each hole where they play through after reading his Greatest Tweets divided into categories like insults to women, insults to politicians, insults to Gold Star families and war heroes, racist dog whistles, voter fraud, Covid 19 misinformation, Hillary Clinton email misinformation, narcissism, sociopathy, etc. At the end, in what used to be his private apartments, I see Trump embalmed like Mao in a glass case so he can be adored by his loyal cult members. It will be the likes of which the world has never seen before. People are saying.

Are you trying to be funny?
It will be a yuge store with a little kiosk devoted to scholarly materials.

I can see the prices now

Adults $40
Children $38
Veterans $45
Gold star parents $60
On-duty Secret Service agents $75 (Trump will make money every time he walks in the door.)

You are all right to think they will milk it as for profit, but you're not thinking either dumb nor big enough.

They'll raise money from their followers for it and improvements. They will apply and be reward grants. They will misuse all those funds, claim to have spent it all, while putting it in a blatantly obvious shell company.

When there are investigations, they will claim persecution from the evil deep state. This will lead to more donations.

It will be the Trump International Presidential Library Hotel and Casino. Built by illegal immigrants paid with donated funds, after multiple refusals to pay and setting for pennies on the dollar. Top floor luxury condos sold out to Russian oligarchs. Shops selling Trump ties made in China and Melanie's Authentic Used Christmas Decorations. Serving Trump steaks and Trump water and an omelette bar with all the ketchup you can afford. An atrium with neon waterfalls and a huge gold statue of Trump. A trophy case filled with the golf trophies Trump has awarded himself, fake Time magazine covers, Nobel Peace Prizes, and his Michigan Man of the Year, Bay of Pigs, and Least Racist Person Who Ever Existed awards. More giant glass chandeliers and gold filigree than a $20,000 a day lawyer can shake a stick at. The absolutely authentic genuine Mona Lisa hand painted by Walt Disney on the River of Blood. With hookers and blackjack.

You know. Something classy.
