Let’s play “Name That Leader!” 

The President of the United States recently met a foreign leader. To leader of which country did he say the following?

“We agree on so many things. I just want to let everybody know in case there was any doubt that we are very much behind [you]. [You’ve] done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation. We are very much behind [your country] and the people of [your country]. The United States has, believe me, backing, and we have strong backing.”

Is it: 

A) England, our longest, strongest ally?

B) Germany, the economic power of Europe and a bulwark against Russian intervention and actively leading in humanitarian aid in the Syrian refugee crisis?

C) Egypt, a country ruled by a tyrant who has actively repressed its people?

D) Myanmar, ditto?

The very depressing answer is C. 

Not only did he not say anything like this to England or Germany, he refused to shake German Chancellor Merkel’s hand and, said that wasn’t insulting enough, handed her an invoice for $374 billion, marking the amount of Germany’s NATO shortfall. Nice guy. Classy guy. Our guy.

    Since he’s an aggressive non-hand washer, perhaps it’s better he did not shake Merkel’s hand?
