Trump to Egyptian president: 'Where's my favorite dictator?'

Sometimes the shit he says and does is so gobsmackingly weird, I almost feel like I've fallen into a wormhole when I write these.

But, alas, I’m still on Earth — and it’s still fucked until at least 2021.

From the Wall Street Journal via Raw Story:

“Inside a room of the ornately decorated Hotel du Palais during last month’s Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France, President Trump awaited a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi,” The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

“Mr. Trump looked over a gathering of American and Egyptian officials and called out in a loud voice: ‘Where’s my favorite dictator?’ Several people who were in the room at the time said they heard the question,” the newspaper reported.

“Even if lighthearted, Mr. Trump’s quip drew attention to an uncomfortable facet of the U.S.-Egypt relationship,” The Journal reported. “Mr. Sisi has drawn criticism for his authoritarian rule since taking power following a 2013 coup. Under Mr. Sisi, Egyptian authorities have been accused of detaining thousands of political opponents, of torturing and killing prisoners and of stymying political opposition, according to reports by the United Nations, U.S. State Department and nongovernmental groups.”

Hmm, personally I don’t have a favorite dictator. But if I did, it sure as shit wouldn’t be Donald Trump.

Of course, Trump probably viewed this “joke” as a compliment, because in his mind dictatorship is the summum bonum of civilization and the logical endpoint of evolution.

Jesus Christ. How much more of this?

Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its breathlessly awaited sequel Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
