  1. Hey, let’s be correct now…he did say he didn’t like American soldiers who were losers.

     ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    (and I’m still stunned that he would ask “who were the ‘good guys’ in WWI”.

    I know the answer to that is “None of them, Katie” because WWI was the death throes of the Old World order, brought about by Inbred cousin royal idiots in power ordering inbred upper-class morons to go to war over an absurdly stupid and rigid alliances with no meaning, gleefully joined with the Greatest Scientific Advances In Slaughtering People the Industrial Revolution could produce…to slaughter millions of people in a war that ground to a standstill in the smoking bloody ruins of Europe with the battle lines almost exactly where they started.

And how he kept bragging about how he was going to do exactly that? How they OWED us that much, at the very least?

He was also the first adult to show us Guernica and this:

    Just tell Trump that the British Empire, the French Empire, the Russian Empire and Rumania were on one side while the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Bulgaria, the Ottoman Empire and the German Empire, and eventually, the Americans were on the other.

    Then stand back and let him try to pick out which were “the good guys.”

    Lord Dampnut’s confusion about WWI may be the result of his German heritage. His Klansman daddy explained it all to him.
