The Greenland Idiocy
It’s hard to even have words about this Greenland idiocy. Who even put this idea in Trump’s head? Did he see it on a map, where it is blown up to 10 times its actual size or whatever, then Stephen Miller told him there were a lot of hot white chicks there, and he was all-in, thinking he’d make the 51st state and it would be The Biggest and The Whitest? I mean, doesn’t this actually seem pretty likely? I’m certainly not going to link to Trump’s Twitter feed but he now tweets (or more likely, whoever is actually controlling it tonight) to say that he’s delaying his meeting with Denmark’s PM since she won’t sell. He and his band of mendacious advisers actually thought this was possible? That they’d go to Denmark, who does not need our money or attention, make the offer and they’d instantly give in because Donald Trump MAKES DEALS? As the stupidest explanation is the most likely one these days, this is probably exactly what is going on. And I mean:
Why? Just WTF?
NEW: Senior Trump officials had discussed offering Denmark a deal where the U.S. would take over its annual $600 million subsidy to Greenland, plus a large one-time payment to incentivize the transfer, @damianpaletta reports: https://t.co/sey61Fx4Ql with @agearan— Felicia Sonmez (@feliciasonmez) August 21, 2019
I hate everything so very much.
