Comrade Trump: ‘Blame Canada’ (UPDATED)

What he said.

“In closing, I want to be very clear about one thing: Americans remain our partners, friends, and allies. This is not about the American people. We have to believe that at some point their common sense will prevail. But we see no sign of that in this action today by the U.S. administration.”

To which the mango-hued shitgibbon replied,

“The United States has been taken advantage of for many decades on trade. Those days are over. Earlier today, this message was conveyed to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada: The United States will agree to a fair deal, or there will be no deal at all.”

So what happened?

Walking termite buffet and Vice President, Mike Pence demanded a five-year sunset clause that would let the US to cancel the deal—for any reason whatsoever— in 2023, and seriously, who would agree to such a thing? To have to go through this BS every five years? They are already in something like a year+ negotiation right now.

Of course the Fourth Reich knows this, so clearly Comrade Stupid wants to kill the deal, and blame Canada (and Mexico) for being unreasonable, bigly.

So get ready, Red States: you are about to get eff’ed in the dark like you’ve never been eff’ed before. Any astute politician would know that the best place to leverage an idiot like Comrade Stupid is to punish his base, which means largely the midwest and the south are gonna get the hammer. The EU (who also got hit by YUGE tariffs) are already making the list of things to be taxed on import, and they are all from those states.

UPDATE 1: Tiger Beat – Wingnuttia Strikes Back!

“Republicans are bitterly protesting the Trump administration’s decision to impose sweeping tariffs on U.S. allies — alarmed that the White House ignored their frenzied lobbying campaign and afraid that the party could suffer at the polls in November. … Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) called it ‘bad news’ and predicted imminent retaliation from the key U.S. allies.

“Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said there is ‘mounting evidence that these tariffs will harm Americans.’ And Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) warned that similar policies 90 years ago sparked the Great Depression. ‘This is dumb. Europe, Canada, and Mexico are not China, and you don’t treat allies the same way you treat opponents,’ Sasse said. ‘“Make America Great Again” shouldn’t mean “Make America 1929 Again.”’

    Trump’s own businesses have a considerable presence in some foreign countries. If those countries really want to play hardball, they could retaliate against his business interests on their territory. That’s what he gets for ignoring the emoluments clause.

    In the meantime, I won’t mind being able sit back and see how much effage the Trumpanzees can absorb before they start getting it through their antediluvian skulls that putting this idiot in charge was a mistake.

      He has a considerable presence in China, and the Chinese have already figured out how to manipulate Trump and it doesn’t have to do with retaliating against his businesses, it has to do with funnelling bribes to him through his businesses.

  2. ‘Make America Great Again” shouldn’t mean “Make America 1929 Again’ – this is almost poetic.

    • Oh, the consequences are very MUCH intended by the people whispering in Trump’s ear. This kind of chaos in the west is just what Putin, Xi, Bannon and Miller want, albeit for different reasons.

      Fascism über alles They all want to go back to the 30’s, and demolish the international cooperation state built since WWII.

      But I think that the R’s are starting to twig that it’s gonna be their turn in the barrel., and I say throw ’em a few thousand anchors.

      Anchors wrapped in barbed wire.

      With rags soaked in gasoline.

      Lit gasoline….

    Yeah, Republicans are all “no problem, Great President,” while he’s cutting corporate taxes and screwing over the country’s health care and going after immigrants like they were a disease. But when he’s causing a pinch to their own states’ economies, well, whoa, Nellie!

    In for a penny, in for a pound, fuckers.

    Don’t you wish you had Trudeau instead
    of Trump? At least there’s no trading
    off the two leaders. We’re quite happy with
    your leader. And are you with yours?
