Russian state TV is openly laughing at Trump's pathetic deal-making skills

2 min read

Julia Davis, the indefatigable Russia media analyst who regularly monitors Russian state TV, unearthed this gem yesterday, and it proves that the world is no longer heartily laughing at the United States.


I’m not sure if that’s technically true. By the looks of it, McDonald’s upsells him on the combo meal pretty much every day, and he gets a big price break on the third pound of fries. 

But as for stuff that fits his job description — yeah, he’s pretty much oh-fer-infinity.

He can’t get his wall built, and he definitely can’t get Mexico to pay for it.

His trade war with China has been a disaster, especially for many of his most loyal followers, and negotiations appear to be stuck in neutral as China considers where to hit us next

He couldn’t get Obamacare repealed nor replaced (it’s a relief when evil flails and flounders, isn’t it?).

During their high-profile negotiations, he and Kim Jong Un have looked like a couple of fat carp flopping around on the bottom of a rowboat while desperately trying to figure out how to spawn.

And after rescinding the Iran nuclear deal, he’s done nothing but rattle sabers — leaving Iran with little choice but to consider restarting its nuclear program.

So, yeah, lots to laugh at — especially if you’re a Russian. We Americans? We try to laugh through the tears — but that’s getting more and more difficult every day.

Is Trump still singeing your sphincter? 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 salve you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And you can get them for less than the price of a cup of coffee … or a black-market Xanax … or five minutes of therapy. It’s time to heal, my friends. Buy now!
