Personally, since I was in Palm Beach County when the Saudi 911 bombers
trained nearby, and lived there, I’m not a huge fan of Saudi Arabian
leadership. Plus there’s that whole, women can’t drive or go out of their
house without a male to supervise them thing. Sorry, but that’s not what
you’d call “endearing” to American women.
But I laughed out loud at the news story about the Saudis giving Trump a
“golden collar” during the president’s first trip to the Middle East . Ya don’t necessarily think of them as having a sense of irony.
They’re gonna have a time of it teaching our perpetually distracted
president to heel, sit and stay though. They’d do better with one of those
“zapper” collars that delivers an electric shock when a pet misbehaves.
That might possibly get the Saudi wannabe owners of Mr. Trump better
results. But they’re gonna have to battle Putin on this one–he’s currently got
bragging rights on controlling our erstwhile Pres.
Maybe Putin and Saudi crown prince somebody or other could mud wrestle
for the right to lead Trump around by his golden collar. (It’d give Putin a hard-to-resist excuse to flash his man-boobs again!)
Lots of people would pay cold hard cash to see that sporting event. I’d put my money on Putin. He sure enough knows how to fight dirty. There’d have to be a written rule–no assassinating opponents; Putin has a history after all.
Yeah, our president–favored lapdog of brutal dictators. MAGA? But which one
would it be? Who’d get the rose? If the high stakes mud wrestling event
were televised it would blow American Idol and Bachelorette ratings off the
court, don’t ya think?
And I’ll just bet that Trump thought that golden collar was an
honor–because it’s expensive.
But, Trump wasn’t just visiting the Middle East, he went to Rome too. (We’ll skip the part where he got confused during a press conference with Netanyahu in Israel and just wandered off!) I was thinking the Pope might once again work his magic, as he did with John Boehner, who resigned the day after meeting with the persuasive pontiff.
Well, except that then we’d have President Pence–another empty suit nitwit.
On the up side he’s more photogenic than Trump, and really good at looking earnest and resolute. Hard to tell if that’d be a real improvement in the long run, but, how much worse could it get? At least he might not spend all day
watching TV and tweeting nonsense. Unlike our current president, Pence
might even have policies and plans that wouldn’t fit into 140 characters.
Does anyone else wonder when the GOP is going to get it that they are
the ones colluding–in making all of us a laughingstock in the world at large that is? Not to mention that leaving a country of nearly 350 million citizens unattended for several years probably isn’t going to work out well.
