Trump, Awaiting Egyptian Counterpart at Summit, Called Out for 'My Favorite Dictator'

Source: Wall Street Journal

Inside a room of the ornately decorated Hotel du Palais during last month’s Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France, President Trump awaited a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi.

Mr. Trump looked over a gathering of American and Egyptian officials and called out in a loud voice: “Where’s my favorite dictator?” Several people who were in the room at the time said they heard the question.

The witnesses said they believed the president made the comment jokingly, but said his question was met by a stunned silence.

It couldn’t be determined whether Mr. Sisi was present or heard the remark.

3. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt

Although I guess with tRump it doesn't matter, there has been no doubt whatsoever for quite a few years now.

9. Republicans love authoritarians of any sort.

They're sort of fond of psychopaths, too.

Trouble is they can't seem to keep their pecking order straight......

12. He thinks he is so cute and funny, but he's just a crashing bore.

He's a constant embarrassment and a complete loser in every sense of the word. I have never seen anyone who is so awful and hated who has such a sense of high self-regard.
