One Lump of Stupid or Two?

Noted deal maker not playing with a full deck

It is widely reported and generally accepted that Lord Damp Nut believes himself to be a real estate mogul, a buyer-seller-trader par excellence. Which of course was why he was trying to buy Greenland at the urging of a cosmetics heir and at some point offered to trade Puerto Rico for it. In other words, he sees the world like the board game Monopoly.

Anyway, we read with some interest that one of Prznint Stupid’s other proposed real estate swaps was to give the West Bank (home to Palestinians) to Jordan (and we presume that there must be “first, a favor” from our former Mob Boss in Chief):

President Trump once offered what he considered “a great deal” to Jordan’s King Abdullah II: control of the West Bank, whose Palestinian population long sought to topple the monarchy.

“I thought I was having a heart attack,” Abdullah II recalled to an American friend in 2018, according to a new book on the Trump presidency being published next week.

“I couldn’t breathe. I was bent doubled-over.”

I generally don’t write about international politics because I generally don’t understand it, but I do understand that this is insane.

    Funny I don’t remember any rules in Monopoly about declaring bankruptcy, stiffing your creditors and keeping your cash and properties…

    Greenland is still part of Denmark. I don’t think they or PR would go for it.
    Puerto Rico (and DC) should be states.

    Israel has spent 55 years (since the ’67 war) colonizing the West Bank. They now have the Palestinians crammed into little Bantustans where they need permission to travel to another one.

    No way Israel is giving it up.

    The San Juan airport is a zoo and a half. One time we saw 4 Russians tag team a gate agent for something, yelling at her. She stood her ground knowing she had all the authority. They called our flight so I don’t know how it turned out. We hoped security dragged them away.

    One time in Paris, we were late and all the gate agent would say was “closed” and wouldn’t budge. We had to take the next flight to Madrid. I think they gave us a meal voucher though.

    I am a bit confused. Was King Abdullah II thinking he might be having a heart attack because he was laughing so hard? Likely, although the way this is phrased I could see numbnuts claiming it was a sort of swooning at the generosity that tfg was offering him.

    Sorry it took so long, but i propose calling that Boebert thing Wonton Barbie
    I live in the country, and sometimes we think slowly.
    It is not our fault.
    Of course we would make our usual wonton dumplings

    but for this one it would be bitter melon and chiltepines
    with pork that she stole
    It would be served with garlic sauce, because we are curious if this thing is a vampire or not?

    Apparently at one point LDN commented that Greenland was “massive, look at the map” (or words to that effect), and that was the main reason he wanted to get it.

    I would be prepared to bet a medium amount that he was looking at a standard Mercator projection, which wildly exaggerates the size of Greenland. (Although, to be fair, it IS larger than Puerto Rico.

    • Oh god STOP MAKING ME REMEMBER ALL THE LITTLE GORY DETAILS!

      At this point I don’t know whether to blame covid or LDN for making the last several years feel like a century.

      Yes, he did say that and I’d bet the house on him looking at a mercator map at the time…

    I’m no expert on international relations, but now I understand that I understand them better than Stilladick Donald ever will.
