In today's edition of delusional people saying crazy things about the American people, I bring you Omarosa's statements about Donald Trump.

Frontline has a special airing next week and a newly released clip focuses on when they believe Trump decided to actually run for office. When was it? The night President Obama made Trump a public joke at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011.

This was the moment his feelings were hurt so bad, so deeply, so terribly, that even the longest and most adjective and exclamation point laden tweetstorm wouldn't have satisfied his petulant, child like temper tantrum.

It was, at that moment, that he appears to have decided to show them all, prove that he was the best, the smartest, the most successful man in the room.

Multiple people were interviewed for the piece. The best quote? Omarosa saying:

"Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President (Fuhrer) Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”

And that is the end game for him. To win just to say he won. This man has zero desire to actually *be* President. He just wants to say he could have been President because he won but it didn't pay enough or the White House wasn't glamorous enough or something.

Do American Presidents actually aspire to this job purely because they want people to bow down to them? Isn't that the antithesis of American politics? Seems more a dictatorlike position, similar to say, North Korea or Russia, right?
