A World Class Leader Meets (air quote) Our (air quote) President

See the world class leader Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, meet “our” President.

See her offer to shake his hand for a public relations drenched photo op.

See “our” President ignore Angel Merkel like she is not even sitting next to him.

Ooh!   See them stand behind matching podiums to make important pronouncements about relations between Germany and the United States.

See them answer questions about important matters of state between her country, the biggest economic power in Europe today, and us.

See Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, behave with poise, grace and a mature demeanor.

See “our” President prattle on about he and Merkel have both been victims of wire tapping by his predecessor, how reporters should ask Fox News about this development, and how Great Britain’s intelligence agency knew about it, and how the media is continuing with their “fake news”, and prattle on and on “Mr.” President…

See Angel Merkel listening stoically to “our” President go on about how everything and everyone is so unfair to him.

See her watch this performance and wonder how we, as a great country, came to this point.

See her wonder, “Really, we lost to this country 72 years ago?” (Okay, so her country was led by a crazed, psychopathic paper hanger, but still.)

She watches, she listens and appears to be every bit like a great, world class leader who would like nothing more than to leap from behind her podium and with claws and fangs bared, rip the face off the front of “our” President’s head.

See her not do this, because she has class.

We’re still trying to figure out what “our” President has, but it certainly can’t be considered class!

Oy Vey!

(Thank you for reading.  Original ending - goading the Prime Minister of Germany to “go for it” - deleted on the advice of counsel and representatives of the Secret Service.)

I should like to thank 'your' President for raising the perceived stature of not just all the foreign leaders he meets but every one of his own POTUS predecessors - Obama without doubt, but also including (dare I say it?) even Dubya!

It's embarrassing seeing him with other world leaders acting like the buffoon that he is.
And he didn't shake her hand because that's not where he grabs women.

Best Meme:
A photo of Merkel sitting beside Complicit, er, Ivanka ____ with a shocked look on her face, and a caption that reads:
What is a handbag designer doing here?

Personally, I think he treated her so poorly because she not doubt read him the Riot Act in private - I'm sure being called a scumbag by a woman would have been a joy to watch. Ah, to have been a fly on the wall.

Thank you, Raybeard. Our President's behavior is even making James Buchanan (considered by historians to be the worst of all time)look better!

Yes, Bob, I'm embarrassed for all of us.

Thank you Dave. Now that would have been a reality TV show episode worth watching.
