“Being President Means I Don’t Have To Die Alone,” By Donald Trump
I think about the end a lot. I guess that’s normal for people my age. But now that they’ve moved me here it’s gotten worse.
I’m cut off from my friends and from all the things I used to do. Jared said this was for the best — that being at the White House would make it safer and more convenient for me than staying at my own place. “It’s the best assisted living facility in the country, dad,” he told me. “It’s where Reagan went.” I couldn’t argue. Still, sitting here with nothing to do except play Parcheesi and order Special Forces raids… you get a lot of time to dwell on your own mortality. The only thing that makes it good is that I don’t have to die alone if I don’t want to.
It’s probably the best perk of being president, you know? If I feel like I’ve lived long enough, and my time is near, I can go out with dignity. On my own terms. And with plenty of company.
The thought of dying alone scares all of us, doesn’t it? The idea that you disappear forever, get forgotten, and that the rest of the world just continues on with its business — all those people getting married or playing with their kids or having fun without you… just like you never existed. Thank goodness it doesn’t have to be that way for me. Not if I don’t want it to.
I haven’t discussed it with Melania, or Ivanka, but I’m pretty sure they feel the same way. And my supporters would do anything for me. That gives me comfort for the years ahead.
Look at me, rambling on and getting morbid! Anyway, I don’t think it’s an issue I have to deal with right now. My doctor says I’m in excellent health, and I have a long life to live. I won’t need to get serious about any of this unless something drastic happens, like a major illness or my approval rating dropping any further.
No matter what happens though, or when… it’s just nice to know I won’t be all by myself when I face it.
TRUMP TALES OF TERROR is about ugly creatures, murderous fantasies, and apocalyptic worlds — and they’re right in America. YOU CAN BUY IT HERE.
