Trump's Tactic: Accentuate the Negative

Trump says he has "low expectations" re his meeting tomorrow with Putin and, whadya know?, I feel a song coming on:

Next time you wait 
To "make America great"
Take a look at your fate
'Fore it's too late.

Just what makes that puffy old dude
Want to schmooze a despot who's shrewd?
Everyone knows with shrewd dude
Puffy will get screwed.

And he's got low hopes.
He's got low hopes.
He's got low/a tale of woe/soften the blow hopes.
So anytime you're thinkin'
To link in Helsinki
Just remember that dude.
Whoops, there goes another Yank gettin' screwed...

Didn't Know He Spoke Russian

This one made me chuckle:

Political Correctness in Montreal Leads to...Bedbugs?!?

Yup. Wouldn't want to exclude the great unwashed (and bug-ridden) from a great public institution, right?

Intolerance In Our Time

In our day, it's primarily a leftist phenomenon, as self-declared liberal Dave Rubin explains here:


Old fashioned progressive tolerance: "I disagree with your thinking but you have every right to express it."

Newfangled "progressive" tolerance: "You conservatives are too evil to even speak."

Don and Vlad's Execrable Adventure--In Song!

Justin Trudeau says NATO has plans to tell Donald Trump that Russia poses a threat.

Why bother, though, when Don and Vlad have a bromance made in Hades--or is it on Broadway?

Arguing for the latter, here are the two alpha males singing a golden oldie by Mr. Porter (and, how perfect!, it first appeared in his show Anything Goes):
Don: If you ever have a scare, I'll be there.

Vlad: If you ever need to flee, call for me.

Don: If you're ever so angry, and Ukraine invade; accolade!

Both: It's bromance, bromance. It's what makes us crow-mance.

Don: When others' bromance have run aground, ours'll still astound.

Vlad: La de la de la de dum dum dum...
