I don’t really want to spend any time on Donald’s bully-boy obsession with North Korea. There’s a simple reason for that: I can’t take it. It makes me queasy. Whether he’s just full of himself and the Kim Jongs understand that, or we’re seeing some very dangerous shit, I’m too close to throwing up. I’m not going to engage any of it.
Instead let’s look at this.
President Donald Trump today thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for demanding the US Embassy eliminate roughly 755 jobs — Putin’s response to the United States’ newly imposed Russia sanctions.
Trump is something.
“I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I’m concerned, I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll…I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’re going to save a lot of money.”
I’ve never seen a U.S. president go all prissy-pansy on a foreign leader. Is there a sort of *thing* going on between them? Is Donald spending his weekends at the Kremlin? Is he now Vlade’s ‘special friend’ or something?
Weird. Not that I just noticed ‘foreign policy’ uses the vocabulary of dominance and submission. But might I make a humble inquiry? Is Trump sucking Putin’s cock? Because that would explain a bit.
