Nato officials will ensure no one talks for more than four minutes to keep Donald Trumps attention

Nato will reportedly put a time limit on speeches at an upcoming summit with Donald Trump, in an attempt to maintain the US Presidentís attention span.

Speakers will be limited to between two and four minutes, sources within the organisation told Foreign Policy magazine. The summit of Natoís 28 member countries will be held at the end of the month and the Belgian capital, Brussels.

4. I really do not know whether to scream or cry.

Can we get a petition to have Obama back?
If it were not for Cheney and Rove, I would even welcome Shrub.
28 nations in NATO and they are seriously considering dumbing down the conference because of that moran?

2. What do you want to bet a half to 2 minutes is actually

considered more optimal but officials wouldn't agree to limit themselves that much? Also that they were afraid that might push Rump into deciding to read off Air Force One's menu, and/or schedule, or worse, to pad his visit?

5. When I saw this headline,

my first impression was that Borowitz had moved to The Independent.

But no, this IS real news. What a shameful representative of our country!

6. And limit the vocabulary to a first grade level.

See Don run! See Don run after Vlad! See Vlad smile. Vlad is happy. Don is happy. Vlad and Don are friends.
