Trump planned to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 in a bizarre way. He was to secretly host the Taliban co-conspirators of 9/11 on American soil (at Camp David) for the usual Trumpy schmoozing, and undoubtedly photo-ops, with the terrorist leaders. Alas, per some bizarre, not-so-secret Trump tweets, the secret meeting was cancelled at the last minute. Seems the terrorists unexpectedly acted shockingly terroristy and took credit for an attack that killed an American soldier and 11 others.
We should be grateful that Obama had Osama bin Laden killed, before Trump could become pals with him. A man capable of falling in love with North Korea’s murderous despot Kim Jong-un is capable of loving anyone.
In Trump’s world Kim Jong-un is a great leader, child molesting monster Jeffrey Epstein is “a lot of fun” and convicted rapist and wife beater Mike Tyson is a “tough guy” whose endorsement he loves. By contrast, Trump regards the Prime Minister of Canada as basically in league with Satan.
Of course, there is always a Trump tweet for every occasion and this episode’s iteration certainly does not disappoint. It seems that Trump once suggested negotiating with the Taliban was akin to treason. Of course that’s when the black guy was supposedly doing it.
The white President being willing to do far more to accommodate the Taliban is different though. Just ask any Trumper.
