Trump pressing aides on how to get an airport named after him: report

According to a report from the Daily Beast, Donald Trump is now looking past leaving the White House and querying close aides on what he has to do to get an airport named after himself as part of his legacy.

The president -- who has made a career of slapping his name on buildings and a multitude of products including a failed university and bottles of wine -- reportedly believes his four years in office is worthy of being honored with an airport naming and has been asking how he goes about making it happen.

As the Beast's Asawin Suebsaeng reports, two aides admitted that the president has been sending out feelers, which also include making sure the airport chosen doesn't have "a bad reputation or crumbling infrastructure," and asked if paperwork is needed to get the process rolling.

Maybe he could start his own Airlines off the money he has grifted while in office, call it TrumpAir specializing in one way trips to Moscow

35. If he really insists maybe this one would work

Deemed the smallest airport in America by the Federal Aviation Administration, the Dawson Community Airport serves fewer than 3,000 passengers per year, according to Airport World. The airport has one airline, Cape Air, which operates two daily flights from this airport to Billings, Montana, for $52. Still, the airport has 4.8 out of 5 stars on Google. It might be time to fly out of an extremely small airport.

41. 30 odd years ago

we used to fly in and out of an airstrip we nicknamed Caldera del Diablo. It would be perfect. On an island off of Honduras, Guanaja. A small shed with a light bulb (you had to check in early but could not fly until it was light outside) with an outhouse and a bench that would seat only 2. An old DC3 would fly in and out of there. Funny thing, the inside of the plane was the very same vinyl as the floor in my old kitchen. If it is the same now as it was then it would be perfect.

Even better, the plane had flames coming out of the uncovered hole in the wing where the pilot put the gas. He stopped on the runway (very short coral runway) went out on the wing and stuffed a rag in the hole and we took off. A flying Molotov cocktail!

What could be more perfect to remember Trump by.

Besides, when Covid hit, where was Trump? MIA

When Russia attacked, where was Trump? MIA.

Donald Trump has always been the MIA president.
