Symbolism!

Melanie and Melania Trump with President Emmanuel Macron and Mme. Macron

You cannot make up stuff like this:

A tree that the presidents of the U.S. and France planted together as a symbol of friendship has died — just as the relationship between the two leaders shows signs of withering. Last year, when French President Emmanuel Macron visited the White House, he presented President Trump with a gift of an oak tree sapling from the site of a World War I battle in France. Together, they planted it in a ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House… Ironically, their “friendship tree” came from Belleau Wood, a northern French forest where 2,000 American Marines died in battle in 1918.

    So, the tree was placed in a concentration camp, er, refugee holding area, er, in quarantine, where it expired of “unknown causes.”
    Sounds kinda suspicious to me. After all, tRump is well-known for Tweeting from his gold-plated toilet (allegedly gold-plated!) at the god-awfulest early hours of the morning, a time slot that is also well-known to those with a criminal background who like to commit their crimes under cover of complete darkness, so it’s easy to speculate that he might have snuck into the quarantine facility and MURDERED the poor tree at 3 or 4 AM, when no one else was around.
    Who’s in charge of the investigation? The FBI? Secret Service? The groundskeeper?
    WHAT!!! No investigation is planned, let alone underway?!?!?! I know a Special Investigator who’s not busy at the moment…

    The poor tree was dug up after planting because it was ‘imported’ and hadn’t been quarantined for bugs and pests and stuff. Just like Cheeto boy I might add.
    The tree never made it back to real dirt.
    I feel sorry for it, it wasn’t its fault.

    They didn’t water it, I guess.

    Can’t have immigrants getting all our sunshine and all our atmospheric carbon dioxide. That’s for real Americans.

    That poor sapling died of embarrassment. It was part of a fake ceremony by a fake president honoring a fake alliance. They should have just used a fake tree.

    Orange Foolius really has that ‘special’ touch in that everything in his orbit eventually turns to sh*t.

    The tree was a victim of over-raking. At least it didn’t burn.
