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.

‘National Teacher Of The Year’ Makes Call For Violence Against McConnell

Published

on

A man who was named the “National Teacher of the Year” back in 2019 by the Council of Chief State School Officers recently tweeted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s neighbors should rip a page out of the playbook the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul and violently attack McConnell. According to Rodney Robinson this would make such an individual a “true Kentucky hero.” The neighbor who assaulted Sen. Paul left him with six broken ribs which made it necessary for doctors to remove a part of his lung. Robinson tweeted, “Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.” https://twitter.com/KyleKashuv/status/1344435826688745474 via Daily Wire: Paul’s wife Kelly Ashby Paul issued a fiery response, tweeting, “I am so disgusted by this I have no words. The 2019 ‘National teacher of the Year’ is celebrating the violent assault on my husband that resulted in 6 broken ribs and part of his lung being removed. This hateful thug is calling for more violence on Sen McConnell.” Robinson eventually deleted the tweet and posted a response to the backlash, which he blamed on “conservative bots“: “I made a Mitch McConnell joke today and the conservative bots are real angry. It’s funny because the joke was made early today and no one said a thing until I promoted black medical awareness.” When he was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2019, the Council of Chief State School Officers said of Robinson, “He creates a positive school culture by empowering his students – many of whom have experienced trauma – to become civically minded social advocates who use their skills and voices to affect physical and policy changes at their school and in their communities,” CNN noted.
