Donald Trump may or may not have out-Trumped his own ego at a rally on April 25, in which he signed an issue of Playboy which features our least-favorite walking irradiated tumor on the cover.

In short: have we finally reached peak Trump, y or n.

At a rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Trump received the copy of the magazine from a supporter as he greeted members of the audience scrambling for his John Hancock (which I still think is probably at the very most medium-sized).

As CNN reported, Trump took the magazine from a person I can only assume is his number one fan besides David Duke, and then “held it up and showcased it to his nearby supporters.”

The Playboy in question is a 1990 issue in which the billionaire and presidential hopeful posed with Playmate Brandi Brandt.

As they cheered, members of the crowd “[clamored] to shake the candidate’s hand.”

Amid the fervor brought on by a picture of a leather-skinned tanning enthusiast next to a 90s Playboy model, Trump then signed the issue and gave it back to its owner.

I am guessing said fan will have it framed and place it in the Trump shrine he has in his closet, right in the lap of a Trump effigy he has made out of his own masticated chewing gum.
