Comrade Trump Goes To NATO!

I saw the other day that Green Day’s 2004 hit American Idiot  has bounced up the pop charts in the UK, you know, to welcome Comrade Przninit Stupid to old Blighty later this week, where the very polite Brits will be trying to keep Trump Baby away from, well, the Trump Baby.

Axios morning email thingie:

“This is about making Trump feel good about Britain. [A planned visit to] Blenheim [Palace] is about flattering him by association with Winston Churchill — Trump feels he’s a latter day Churchill. And of course he and Melania will be thrilled to have tea with the Queen.”

We were not amused to learn that even before the short-fingered vulgarian had left The Swamp, he was living up to Green Day:

…which prompted this response:

Members of the alliance do not pay the United States, so they cannot be delinquent for many years in payments, and they do NOT need to reimburse the U.S.

It is true that members of the alliance vowed to increase their defense spending levels to 2 percent of their G.D.P., the deal was to do it by 2024, not whatever timeline our Grifter-in-Chief prefers (or to pay him in small, non-sequenced Ameros). Now, one cannot assume intelligence from the American Idiot that he would know these things, but one can assume his goal is tearing NATO apart; he and Pooty-Poot are two hearts that beats as one. (Forgive me, Scissorheads)

And with that, the American Idiot flitted across the pond to the NATO meeting, where we hear from Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie that things are just going as expected: to hell.

“AT A MORNING BREAKFAST WITH NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump said that Germany is a captive and is “totally controlled” by Russia because it made a “massive oil and gas deal” with Vladimir Putin’s country — an apparent reference to the Nord Stream II pipeline. He essentially said the U.S. is paying to defend Germany, as Germany makes Russia richer. Other presidents have been opposed to this situation, Trump said, but no one has been as forceful about it. Trump mentioned that former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder is an executive with the company, hinting that the deal was not totally on the level.”

And of course there was some fun trolling of the American Idiot:

“Funny @jensstoltenberg. Asked how the breakfast with @realDonaldTrump went, he smiled and said: ‘We had excellent orange juice and toast. We had a good breakfast. Paid by the US.’ #NATOSummit2018 #germany #bashing”

Ouch. But excellent snark.

Tiger Beat continues:

WSJ’S REBECCA BALLHAUS in BRUSSELS: “A NATO official said that expectations were very low for the summit, given Mr. Trump’s unabashed criticism of Germany. ‘The mood ahead of the G-7 was also quite bad and still it ended worse than expected,’ the official said.”

Axios morning email continues:

Breaking … President Donald Trump, in a “startling public outburst” at the U.S. chief of mission residence in Belgium ahead of the NATO summit, said “Germany is a captive of Russia” and “totally controlled by Russia” because of energy purchases.

 

And meanwhile, back home: The Senate yesterday overwhelmingly cleared a resolution supporting NATO. It passed 97-2. So no mixed messages to Europe from us.

    Trump accused Germany of being controlled by Russia.

    The Germans must think they’re living in a Twilight Zone episode.

    It’s clear all those furtive phone chats between Putin and his puppet are paying huge dividends. Talk about a win-win for Vlad: he gets to sell oil to Germany at higher prices, thanks to Trump, and he gets his puppet to make the argument that because Germany buys Russian oil, there’s no need for NATO.

    Dear Europe:

    There are still castles here and there in your continent, so if could you find one with a deep, dark dungeon, arrange a tour, and conveniently “lose” our peerless leader there, never to be seen again, well……….I don’t think there would be any serious repercussions on our side of the pond.

      He could probably be tricked into it voluntarily. Just tell him it’s a new money-making property he needs to visit and show him his name on top in huge gold letters.

    McFaul doesn’t seem to understand The Mustache of War is waiting for 45 to give him the war he was promised and until TMoW realizes that Trump is showing him a carrot on a stick he’s not going to do jack.

    Plus explain something to 45? It is to laugh.

      Explainer: “It’s like a Home Owner’s Association agreement – but the dues just go right into upkeep instead of going to the association.”
      Trump: “If it’s like HOA rules then what are all these black people doing here? And why would anyone have HOA rules if they don’t get to keep all the dues?”

    Did Germany give US a shot at piping in natural gas? Nooooooooo! I’m sure Trump could order up a trans-Atlantic pipeline just as quickly as he closed his denuclearization deal with NK!
