Trump, on Important Call With Trudeau Over Tariffs, Drops Hilarious One-Liner

Never a dull moment with POTUS 45, is there?

I would have loved to see the look on Trudeau's face.

Oh, Trump. I really do often wish that libs weren’t so psychotically upset that he’s in the White House, because love him or hate him, he is a hilarious president.

And what he just told Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the phone as they discussed the highly sensitive issue of trade tariffs is just about the most Trumpian thing ever.

Speaking of leftists who can’t take a joke, however, this story was broken by CNN who breathlessly delivered the super special report on the top secret joke that Trump dropped on the PM.

According to CNN, who got it from an anonymous source, this is what supposedly transpired in a May 25 phone call between the two leaders about new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports Trump has imposed on our neighbor to the North:

According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a “national security” issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?” referring to the War of 1812.

LMBO.

“Unfortunately, as CNN makes sure to point out, Trump got his facts a little crossed up: Yes, the White House was set ablaze during the War of 1812, but it was the British who were lighting fires. And like most Trump mix-ups, there’s a kernel of truth somewhere in there,” the Daily Wire explains. CNN oh-so-helpfully clarified that:

Historians note the British attack on Washington was in retaliation for the American attack on York, Ontario, in territory that eventually became Canada, which was then a British colony.

CNN, eager to milk this story for all it was worth, asked its sources how Trudeau received the Trumpian quip.

“To the degree one can ever take what is said as a joke. The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the US won’t be a laughing matter,” replied the source, who we can certainly confirm cannot take a joke themselves.

Maxine Waters Escapes Censure, Goes on MSNBC to Gloat

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Waters has learned her lesson.

Maxine Waters is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to her vision of the role of violence in the political process. Back in 2018, the California Congresswoman told a group of constituents that they should confront staffers for then-President Donald Trump. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Then, just days ahead of the jury’s deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial, Waters again suggested that Americans should be “more confrontational” regarding the case. This comment drew widespread criticism from her colleagues in Congress, and Maxine was soon facing a censure by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Now that this effort to admonish Waters has failed, the longtime Democrat seemed to take a victory lap on MSNBC. On MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Tuesday, Waters knocked the censure efforts led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The vote to table McCarthy’s censure resolution was 216-210 and split along party lines. “Of course, I’m criticized all the time, and of course, the Republicans make a target of me, but as you know, I am passionate on these issues,” Waters told host Joy Reid. “I’m so sorry that it causes pain oftentimes with my colleagues. Many times they’re in these districts where they are frightened, where they have a lot of racism, where they haven’t moved to the point that they can have a decent conversation about these issues and sometimes it’s very difficult for them. “But they stood up with me today,” she added. “They put…
