    The soliloquy between Trump and Macron was kind of interesting

    At the NATO meeting Tuesday in London, Trump went looking for Macron who had earlier called NATO ‘brain dead.’ Sitting next to Macron, Trump brought up another sore spot for France: the repatriation of ISIS fighters.
    “And they are all under lock and key but many are from France, many from Germany and many are from the UK. They’re mostly from Europe. And some of the countries are agreeing. I have not spoken to the president about that. Would you like some nice ISIS fighters? I can give them to you. You can take every one you want.”

    Macron deflected --
    “it is true you have a current fighters coming from Europe. But it’s a minority problem of the overall problem we have. And I think the number one priority because it is not yet finished is to get rid of ISIS.
    “And it is not done, I’m sorry to say that. Your number one problem are not the foreign fighters, it is the ISIS fighters in the region and you have more and more of these fighters due to the situation today.”

    Trump replied --
    “It’s why he is a great politician. That was one of the greatest non-answers I’ve ever heard and that’s okay.”

    ^^^Surprised Shifty didn't add that to the impeachment report. Must be impeachable to talk like that to another <GASP!> world leader.

    So now there is a meme floating around that Trudeau Macron and Boris Johnson were "caught" making fun of Trump behind his back.
    Srsly?

    Trump calls Trudeau “two-faced”. Maybe he should have said “two face colored”.

    I am not so sure about this one -- these have to be among the 3 most-hated companies in America right now -- why protect them?

    Is it protecting them so much as a bigger picture F U to Macron not to levy BS taxes like this against US companies?

    OK, but do it on behalf of farmers or steelworkers -- not the world's richest guy who owns a private newspaper that trashes you ever day

    Article from Megan Fox (not the hot one) about NATO --

    "PAY UP, DEADBEATS! Beta Males and 'Mean Girls' at NATO Will Not Deter America's Bully President"
    " .... But Dilbert creator Scott Adams pointed out in his broadcast earlier that to him, it just looked like "every beta male talking about their leader. I saw every lower level employee b*tching about the CEO." Adams continued, "Who talked about Macron behind his back? Probably nobody, do you know why? Was it because Macron did all good things? Could be, but maybe it's because he's not terribly important."

    Adams pointed out that the only takeaway is that Trump is the most important person in the room and it should be expected that he's the one everyone is talking about. Adams also pointed out that the press is trying to make a big deal out of it. Exhibit A: The New York Times' Maggie Haberman tweeted, "Can't get over this video, both for the fact that POTUS hates the thought of anyone laughing at him and for the fact that he long used 'other countries are laughing at us' as an attack against his predecessors."

    Adams thinks she's missed the point entirely. "I'll tell you what none of the leaders of the NATO alliance were doing," said Adams. "None of them were laughing about the United States because what the United States did was elect a bully to go over there and pick their pockets. So while the bully that we elected to go over there and pick their pockets had his hand into their pockets up to his elbow and was rummaging through their wallets to get them to pay more for NATO so that we would pay less, do you think that as he was pickpocketing them they were thinking, 'Ha ha! I laugh at the United States?'" Adams doesn't think so, and neither do I...."

    Awesome time to be an American....... unless you don’t see it or wanna see it. Then it’s still great to be an American because of how entertaining the left are with their meltdowns.

    Still laughing about Joe Biden and his chia leg.
    :popcorn: :lmao:

    Think of how much it must suck to have to hate good economic news
    But this is the position they have put themselves in
    They hate that wages are rising
    They hate that employment is up
    They hate that minority unemployment is at historic lows
    They hate that inflation is numb
    They hate that the stock markets is showing approval
    They hate that the deconstruction of the administrative state and reduction of regulation is helping the economy
    They hate that we are not in a recession
    They hate that targeted tariffs against China did not tank the US econ

    They actually believe that this is just a continuation of Obama's "great" economy.
