Orange Man Bad, International Version

If I didn’t know better, I’d swear that President Trump asked them to do this.

On Friday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel claimed President Trump’s remarks about the “Squad” — made up of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — “undermine America’s strength.”

[Merkel:]“I distance myself from this decidedly and stand in solidarity with the women who were attacked,” Merkel said in her remarks at a press conference in Berlin, according to CNN. “US’s strength lies exactly in the fact that people of very different nationalities contribute to the strength of the American people.”

[Trump:] “I have a suggestion for the hate-filled extremists who are constantly trying to tear our country down. They never have anything good to say. That’s why I say, ‘Hey, if you don’t like it, let ’em leave. Let ’em leave.’”


[Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:] “I think Canadians, and indeed people around the world, know exactly what I think of those comments … “That is not how we do things in Canada. A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May didn’t like it either. Is she still in office, by the way?

I don’t think that there are three other people in the world who could sound this limp and weak while meddling in our business. Trudeau’s comment is especially pathetic.

And considering Merkel’s method of bringing diversity to her country and the continuing effects of that method, any sane head of state who cared about the well-being of his/her constituents and the cohesiveness of his/her nation who do well to look at Merkel’s actions and do the exact opposite. The same goes for May and most of her recent predecessors.

Simply, these three doormats stand in stark contrast to the POTUS in this matter and in most other matters.

President Trump should send them thank-you notes and, knowing him, it’s likely that he already has.
