Donald Trump cancels trip to Denmark because they refuse to sell Greenland to him.

I bet you thought i made that shit up in my headline, but nope he really is that stupid.

Courtesy of WaPo:

President Trump on Tuesday abruptly called off a trip to Denmark, announcing in a tweet that he was postponing the visit because the country’s leader was not interested in selling him Greenland.

The move comes two days after Trump told reporters that owning Greenland, a self-governing country that is part of the kingdom of Denmark, “would be nice” for the United States from a strategic perspective.

Trump’s announcement suggests that, despite his denials, the central purpose of his trip had been discussion of a U.S. purchase of the massive, glaciered island, which holds increasing value as melting sea ice opens new parts of the Arctic to shipping and resource extraction.

The episode was also a rare window into secret White House national security planning, albeit with a Trumpian dealmaker’s twist and an element of the surreal. Trump touts his real estate background as a primary job qualification, promising voters he can negotiate better than his predecessors and spot a good deal. But the notion of buying a part of another country was widely met with surprise and bafflement when news broke last week of Trump’s interest in the island.

This is one of the most batshit crazy things I have ever read, and remember I covered Sarah Palin for nine years.

And perhaps the craziest thing about this is that it may in fact not be the real reason that Trump is canceling his viist.

Courtesy of The Local:

Former US president Barack Obama will visit Denmark for the second time in 12 months to give a talk in Aalborg at the end of September.

Obama’s September 28th stop in North Jutland would have fallen in the same month as the now-postponed official state visit of his successor, Donald Trump, on September 2nd and 3rd.

Now as crazy as this also seems, it actually makes more sense that a guy obsessed with crowd size would not want to to visit a destination in the same month that Barack “Everybody loves me” Obama visits. 

You just know that the headlines would be all about the protests that greeted Trump and the adulation which Obama bathed in during his visit. 

Can you imagine being so embarrassed about the real reason you are canceling a trip that you wwere willing to make up an excuse which made you seem like a spoiled toddler?

    I hope another country does to us what Trump did to Denmark. They should make a ridiculous demand, like “Give us Hawaii” then when Trump says no, cancel all meetings.

    Not that Trump would learn anything by being treated the way he treats people. He’s incapable of learning.

      The problem is that Don the Con would probably say, “For how much?” And then he’d ask, “What’s in it for me?” Besides, if he sold Hawaii to another country, he could then bleat all the more that President Obama was not born in the US.

      I would prefer it be Alaska (no offense Gryph, but if we save the planet by limiting fossil fuels, AK is fucked economically.)

        “The Eielson Air Force Base Regional Growth Plan commissioned by the borough and published last fall concluded that 532 new housing units around North Pole would be needed by 2022 to accommodate normal growth and demand by F-35 families. The first F-35 is scheduled to arrive April 2020. The rest will follow over two years. A small number of personnel dedicated to the F-35s have already arrived.
        Two squadrons of F-35, and 54 aircraft in all, have been assigned to the base”

        ‘limiting fossil fuel con*sumption – ‘AK is fucked economically’…Right…

    Don the Con characterized the Danish Prime Minister’s response as “nasty,” a word that he reserves for women. I sighed a great sigh of relief that none of our Danish friends would have put up with Trump’s presence in their country. I emailed one of my Danish friends today and told her I was relieved that Denmark would not have to suffer the burden of a Trump visit next month. Remember how unhappy the British royal family seemed in his presence last spring.

    I strongly suspect that Putin, via one of his Don the Con contacts, put the bee in Trump’s bonnet about Greenland. Otherwise, I doubt very much that Don the Con could find it on a map or globe. I also think he would be sorely disappointed to learn that the native population of Greenland is not made up of blond Norwegians, who seem to be his favorite people.

    Iceland’s leader are not going to meet with Pence either!!

    now that the mentally ill occupant of the WH has declared himself the King of Israel, is he going to resign and move to Jerusalem and do us all a favor?

    Question to all:

    My father a veteran of WWII and Korean passed away on Sunday, i understand that there is some ceremonial letter from the president available, does anyone know if I can wait until the mental case is out of the WH? I know my dad did not want any letter from trump and I certainly don’t either!!

      Call the LOCAL office of your US Congressperson. If they don’t know the answer they probably can point you to someone who does.
      Congressional staffers handle requests like that all the time.

      Piss, spit. Shit, if I still menstruated I’d throw a dirty tampon on it too. Blow my nose and leave the tissue. Toenail clippings, too. Earwaxy Q-tips.
      I hate him.

      I predict that they will either have to bury him in an unmarked grave or put a portajohn on top of it to avoid sanitation issues in the vicinity.

      Many of us have mailed symbolic tampons with red food coloring on it to Pence on a monthly basis since he singed the fetus funeral bill – after all, we wouldn’t want to be in violation!

    Bet he sees Greenland in the “Mercator Projection” version.
    That’s the kind of map that flattens out the globe and makes areas that are far north or south appear MUCH bigger than they actually are
    (as in Greenland appearing to be the size of Africa when it is 14X smaller).
    He thinks it’s YUGE and there to be taken advantage of for profit. BET on it.

    And now this!

    Trump is now demanding that all US automakers, or he called them “politically correct automakers,” lower car prices by $3,000 across the board.

    Trump tweeted:

    “My proposal to the politically correct Automobile Companies would lower the average price of a car to consumers by more than $3000, while at the same time making the cars substantially safer. Engines would run smoother. Very little impact on the environment! Foolish executives!”

      He can demand whatever the hell he wants but they don’t have to do it, they are private corporations!

      • anon August 21, 2019 at 9:52 pm

        They all took a trillion in bailouts a decade ago. Why? So we can kill the planet by making more cars? Those fuckers should give us all free cars.

    “The task became critical this week because Gov. Mike Dunleavy decided to make it impossible for tens of thousands of the poorest people in the state to get basic dental care under Medicaid, ending a program that began 13 years ago.

    The Dunleavy Dental Director, to be paid up to $225,000 over the next three years, “will develop oral health program priorities in a written Oral Health Action Plan with assistance from tribal programs to identify gaps in oral health services to Alaska’s most vulnerable populations.”

    The work is 20 hours per month for up to three years, about $300 an hour.”

    Sam Seder pointed out that Obama was set to travel to Denmark not long after Trump’s planned visit, and the current president didn’t want to be humiliated by his predecessor.

    “It is my understanding that Obama is going to be in the country,” Seder said. “Maybe he feels like, I don’t want the baby blimp and then the next week they’re throwing roses at Obama.”

    Trump threw a tantrum and got his feelings hurt because the Prime Minister called his idea of buying Greenland absurd.

    “Cotton reportedly boasted that buying Greenland had been his idea all along.” – “I told the president you should buy it as well,” Cotton bragged, though he later conceded that Trump had also heard the idea
    “from some other people as well.””

    Not only that, but he invited himself to Denmark in the first place.
