Make Danes Great Again

“The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!” With that quote, we have reached the news singularity (the moment at which real headlines and headlines from The Onion become indecipherable). WaPo with the header for the ages: Trump postpones Denmark trip after prime minister declines to sell him Greenland. (Add Denmark to the stops on what will someday be the next American president’s endless apology tour.)

+ Go Gentile in That Good Night: Trump took his offensiveness to biblical proportions with some advice for the Jews. “I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty, alright?” (Forrest Trump accusing Jews of lacking knowledge? I’ve heard it all now…) Trump added to his effort to make sure he’s the topic the high holiday sermons in every synagogue when he quoted a conspiracy theorist’s take on the matter: “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world . . . and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel … They love him like he is the second coming of God.” (This reminds me of an old Yiddish saying: STFU.)
