Blame Canada

“Before President Donald Trump sits down with a notorious dictator, he will face what may well turn out to be a tougher crowd — some of America’s oldest allies.” AP: Trump to face tough crowd at G-7 amid tariff fight.

+ “According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a ‘national security’ issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, ‘Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?’ referring to the War of 1812.” (Actually, Canada didn’t even become an independent country until … oh forget it…)

+ Scott Pruitt enlisted an EPA aide to help his wife find a job — with Chick-fil-A.

+ Trump didn’t seem to know the words to the patriotic songs and “a reporter for NBC’s Philadelphia affiliate tweeted that he had asked six people who the Eagles quarterback was during the Super Bowl, and they didn’t know.” Oh, and at least one guy took a knee during the anthem. Other than that, Trump’s Celebration of America went relatively well.
