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.

New Travel Restrictions Arrive Months After Biden Bashed Trump for Same Thing

It’s like they’ve forgotten all about what they said when they were trying to insult Trump.

Oh the hypocrisy of the liberal left; does it know no bounds?

While President Joe Biden hasn’t been quite a contradictory as some of the other high-level hypocrites in his party, it appears that this is only because he really hasn’t done anything as Commander in Chief.  The border crisis remains a horrid, humanitarian stain on our nation.  Biden-flation continues to threaten the all-important consumer spending season surrounding Christmas.  Russia continues to act with impunity the world over.

It’s hard to be a hypocrite when all you do is sit idly by, right?

But now, a worrisome new strain of COVID-19 has threatened to take the world by storm, and Biden’s work to curb the spread here in the US appears to be eerily similar to actions that he once lambasted Donald Trump for taking.

President Joe Biden has imposed travel restrictions into the United States due to coronavirus fears despite previously slamming former President Trump as xenophobic for doing the same thing in 2020.

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted as a presidential candidate last year the day after Trump imposed travel restrictions from several countries including China into the United States. “We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

And he even doubled down on this sentiment:

Biden later attempted to walk back the xenophobic comment and claimed during a debate that he was making a broad point about xenophobia and not directly referring to the travel ban.

“A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted in March of 2020. “Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.”

One has to wonder, if Joe Biden was that oblivious about the needs of the nation back when he was insulting Donald Trump’s leadership, how is he possibly going to right the nation’s wrongs while in power?

California City Votes to Become ‘Constitutional Republic’, Will Not Adhere to COVID Rules

WHOA!

Published

on

There are plenty of ways in which companies and municipalities are working to push back against the government’s highly criticized COVID-19 mandates, and one town in California has just taken perhaps the largest step toward freedom that we’ve seen yet.

In a move that was born out of a need to keep the state government from becoming an authoritarian brute, the city of Oroville, California has declared itself a sovereign “constitutional republic”.

The city council in Oroville, located at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills about 90 miles from the capital of Sacramento, adopted a resolution this week stating it would oppose state and federal orders it deems to be government overreach.

Oroville leaders said the designation was a way of affirming the city’s values and pushing back against state rules it doesn’t agree with, although a legal expert said the designation was merely a gesture and did not grant the city any new authority.

The move had its naysayers, of course.

But the city’s declaration does not shield it from following federal and state laws, said Lisa Pruitt, a rural law expert at the University of California, Davis, who said it was not clear what the designation meant.

“A municipality cannot unilaterally declare itself not subject to the laws of the state of California,” Pruitt said. “Whatever they mean by constitutional republic you can’t say hocus pocus and make it happen.”

Despite the pushback, the measure passed in a vote of 6-1, and there is little doubt that legal challenges will be coming in the not-so-distant future.
