Donald Trump canceled his weekend trip to Poland in order to “monitor” Hurricane Dorian.
Yesterday, Trump proved he listens intently to his weather briefings, claiming he’d never heard of a Category 5 hurricane before (four such storms have occurred while he’s played president).
But despite the urgency, Trump managed to get in several rounds of golf this weekend and found time to attack a sitcom star who had slighted him. Because the Eastern Seaboard will fully recover at some point in the not-too-distant future, whereas repairing Donald Trump’s shattered ego is a full-time job.
And, oh yes, people noticed.
“He’s clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course,” [London Mayor Sadiq] Khan, who traveled to Poland to attend a commemoration ceremony on Sunday, told POLITICO's London Playbook.
Khan also took aim at the U.S. president for emboldening racists to speak out from the fringes of society.
“These people have been inspired by mainstream politicians who subscribe to their point of view,” Khan said. Trump “is a guy who amplifies racist tweets; amplifies the tweets of fascists; says things that are deeply objectionable. If I don’t stand up and call that out I think I’m doing a disservice to Londoners who chose me as their mayor.”
And we have exclusive video of Trump’s reaction:
They say a butterfly flapping its wings in Brazil can — given enough time — set off a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. I imagine the torrent of spittle disgorging from Trump’s KFC-hole after he reads those quotes will greatly expedite that process and put our country in harm’s way again soon.
Oh, but don’t worry. Despite canceling his trip to Poland to play that game he insisted he would never, ever play as president, he managed to give a shout-out to the Poles and congratulate them on the anniversary of their being invaded and crushed by the Nazis (second tweet).
Oh, hey, thanks for the trivia about Poles in America! But that had absolutely nothing to do with the question.
You have to ask — does Trump have any idea when World War II started or why?
Silly question, I know.
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.
