The thing is that Trump would be Kim if he could. He gets Kim as Trump if Trump could have the government Trump wants.

The people he DOESN't get are the ones like Merkel and Trudeau, who keep insisting that he and his country have to "deal" with them in straight-up deals were everybody gives something and everybody gets something.

Trumps don't do that. They grift you, they skin you, they chump you. There's no "deal", there's just the con and the mark, the grifter and the chump. So if you're NOT the con or the grifter, you're the chump. Those damn Europeans and Canadians who insist on "trade"? That's just a con, and Trumps are the con men, not the chumps. So Trudeau and Merkel? they're just lying and trying to cheat The Donald.

So I can get why Trump loves him some KJU. It's the bizarre nonsense like the "exploding beach cannons" I don't get. That's just freakish, and that makes me wonder if he isn't losing some of his stuffing.


I read Troublesome Young Men a few months back. It's a blow by blow account of how they finally got rid of Chamberlain, and it was rather nauseating. Interestingly, the appeasers were mainly men who had NOT fought in The Great War. They were mainly conservatives, and their big concern was maintaining their power in Parliament, the nation be damned. The ones who wanted to take on Germany were often veterans or young men who were eager to take on the Nazis. (Barbara Cartland's brother was among those.)
