Several things are immediately striking about this episode. First, it’s a measure of how low we’ve all sunk that, in trying to explain why the president of the United States is making a consequential decision involving an official state visit, we’re forced to choose between two competing rationales that have nothing whatsoever to do with international diplomatic considerations or our national interest.

Oh, well now see, what you're engaging in there is that whole noRMaLiZATioN trope, which we all know is just HYsTeRIa.
This rates a lulz.

tiny has more "nasty" women to deal with.

Trump told reporters at the White House later: “I thought the prime minister’s statement that it was an absurd idea was nasty.

Not to be outdone....Villy Søvndal, a former foreign minister, said the decision “confirms that Donald Trump is a narcissistic fool”. Søvndal told the Danish newspaper Berlingske that Trump’s decision showed he was unaware of the basic rules of diplomacy. “If he had been a clown in a circus, you could probably say that there is considerable entertainment value. The problem is that he is the president of the most powerful nation in the world,” he said.

The trumpublican party is letting our allies know what they think of them. When all the foreigners see how tiny and his brain trust handle an economic recession they will be even more impressed.

Fortunately, none of this is new. Other presidents have, um, spoken words before.

....extraordinary even by his standards....

This stream of consciousness seems off the rails but he is the King of Isreal and the chosen one so he gets to do a few victory laps now and then and again and again. And his cult loves it. The party of trump has reached their defining times.

tiny's reaction when Obama shows up in Denmark next month to a hero's welcome, should be breathtaking. By that I mean we will be gasping.

For future reference 'Chosen One' should always be capitalized.Show some respect for the Office of the Presidency.

I worry too much

It's these sandpaper eyes
It's the way they rub the luster from what is seen
It's the way we tell ourselves that all these things
Are normal till we can't remember what we mean

It's the flicker of our flames
It's the friction born of living
It's the way we beat a hot retreat
And heave our smoking guns into the river

So tiny prepares to go to the G7 and disrupt it with bragging about how great his stewardship of the economy is going and how everyone needs to sit down and shut up and listen to him.......and Xi drops the Dow 150 points. OK, so let's talk about letting Putin back in then.

And there is one less Koch.

The Greenland story was especially bizarre, and headlines (“Trump postpones Denmark trip after prime minister declines to sell him Greenland”) brought online cracks like this from Columbia University journalism professor William Grueskin: “I give up,” says every editor at The Onion.

And this was before he "ordered" all US companies to find new suppliers and boycott China.

The answer is "never". This is the real trump derangement syndrome.

So we have a new trade deal with Japan that the Japanese aren't aware of and the Chinese are begging us for a trade deal although they haven't said it out loud but the one thing that was said out loud is the idea that maybe we should try dropping a nuclear bomb on a hurricane to blow it up. If we try that hopefully we can get the nuclear fallout cleaned up from the grounds at Mar-a-lago in time for tiny's sleep over with the G7 leaders and Putin next year.

Have we bought Greenland yet? I saw it was listed on eBay now.

"Why" and "How?" are going to be the two big questions when they write this era in the history books. My guess is the answers will focus more on the people who knew better and either laughed it off, tried to minimized it out of embarrassment for their party or said nothing at all more so than the actual idiots who supported/continue to support him.

Yeah but if Hillary had been elected, fast food franchises would be serving us all fake meat burgers by now.

When tiny gets reelected he and the GOP will kill SocSec and medicare. The upside is we can then start producing Soylent Green at an affordable price for consumers right here in the US of A.

Soylent Green is real meat!
