That would explain why those calls never got returned.

Can't wait to hear Spicer explain what he 'really meant' and spin away the obvious senile dementia.

Given what he's done, I'm not ever going to actually feel bad for him, but honestly it is pretty sad.  Like not FOR him.  But in a general human sense, just seeing it.  Knowing it happens to other, worthwhile people.  I miss you still, Sir Pratchett.

He's just remembering Pavarotti when he'd turn into Captain Chaos to outwit the socialists in that documentary about the nationwide race.

A preposterous and ridiculous statement.  Everyone knows Trump doesn't have friends.
 
2017-04-21 06:01:01 AM  
I guess that claiming to be a personal friend of someone who's been dead for 10 years is an improvement over claiming to be a friend of one who's been dead for nearly 2,000

You farking idiots sure do not like context, leaving out how he is talking about Italy's history of artistic achievement...and I guess stop calling a person a friend after they die. Such cold-hearted ignoramuses.
 
2017-04-21 06:03:22 AM  
This just proves the theory that Trump is actually a time traveler.  In Trump's time, Pavarotti is still alive.

Does this mean Opera Man is coming back to SNL?

But yeah, call that guy your friend. Not likely that he'll rise from the dead to dispute your "facts"

I think I might come back just to refute that statement.

I'm more offended that he thinks every piece of decor looks better off good colored. Those curtains behind him look shiatty. Trump could just hire an interior decorator to make good decisions for him. Those curtains are so tacky, they look like something someone purchased from a 99¢ store.

He just makes shiat up when he doesn't know what to say.

It's always something like:
Good friend, amazing people, a truly fantastic plan, a really really super something something... And then he doesn't say anything specific that proves he knows what the fark he's talking about.

That's because Trump doesn't speak English like a normal adult.  I'm much more likely to believe that Trump is lying and has no idea that Pavarotti is dead as opposed to him speaking in a more general sense that they were once great friends.

I wish someone had followed his statement up with a question about when he last spoke with Pavarotti.  I bet Trump would have said Pavarotti called him to congratulate him on winning the election and telling him it was glorious how Trump got 306 electoral votes when nobody thought it was possible.
 
2017-04-21 07:23:02 AM  
So when meeting with a foreign head of state, he was literally, "I have an Italian friend"?

I don't... ah. I just. Wow.
 
2017-04-21 07:26:21 AM  
Exactly, that makes him the perfect friend because he's no longer alive to refute the friendship.
 
2017-04-21 07:33:13 AM  
He should deflect this, change the subject.
How about Scotland?
He could remind everyone that he loves Scotland because he is Scotch.
