A Lonely VIP in Paris

This is just so wonderful that I have to share it, from Bloomberg Politics. Thanks for sending it to me, you know who. Just in case you don't know, Macron is the newish President of France and Prime Minister Jussy Trudeau of  Canada is the longest senior politician among the trio. I don't have to tell you who Trump is.

“Macron appeared to form a special bond with Trudeau, with television cameras lingering on the two Generation Xers strolling down the hill conversing in French while Trump, at 70 the oldest G-7 leader, stayed behind to wait for a golf cart to give him a lift through the narrow cobbled streets.”

  2. I know right! He's such a chump! I wonder if he regrets his decision, he probably, like most of the civilised world, didn't think he had a hope of winning.. who knew there were so many chumpsters in the US!

    1. Grace, there must be rather a lot of people in the US saying, what was I thinking.

  3. I though Macron while shaping up very nicely until he wanted to create a First Lady position in France. What is that nonsense about?

    1. Hels, I don't know about this. A president is elected, not his or her partner.

  4. I now have an image of Trump being taken down a cobbled street by handcart. I wish!

    1. VA, it seems they probably did, in their minds.

  6. I suspect the voices in his head kept him company as they applauded him and told him that Paris loved him. Bigly.

    1. EC, he does often seem puzzled that people have issues with him. He is either disingenuous or does not pick up on feelings at all.

  7. It is interesting to watch Trump in his unguarded moments at these international gatherings of world leaders.

    He looks like the sad schoolchild at kindergarten who isn't invited to play with the other kids and who pretends to be busy doing nothing with no-one.

  9. I have a ultra conservative friend who loves Trump now making excuses as to why she voted for him, while still supporting many of his rather extreme campaign promises. He still enjoys the support of an entire group of Americans, mostly the ultra religious and the uneducated working poor and gun loving classes or disenfranchised America, who have to have someone else to blame for their problems. He did lose some of these supporters when he tried to rescind the AFA (Affordable Care Act) when they realized if it happened, their health insurance would vanish.

    1. Strayer, good to hear a personal experience. He seems unable to muster enough support for his more extreme policies.
