Most of them are probably Russian.

Desperate Trump is desperate

Rhyno45: Most of them are probably Russian.


The rest are too Canadian to be impolite enough to turn down an invitation anywhere.

They know there's no Tim Horton's at the White House, right?

Please to inform that they're all Canuckians

8 of 24 are Americans.

Canadians are Americans also.  It's just that they're Trump's favorite Americans -- white.

I hope the Canadians bring LaBatt with them.

That's french for "the bat", right?

Please to inform

I'm sure that's just a euphenism.
 
2017-09-24 07:47:33 PM  
I'd love it if they decide not to show up now.
 
2017-09-24 07:56:20 PM  
better brief the secret service so that they can keep an eye out for any ringers, particularly a rather short number 11 with a suspiciously prolific scoring record

Penguins are half black just like a good President.

So what's the over/under on the team kneeling en masse on the White House lawn right in front of him?

They can bring him one of these.
 
2017-09-24 08:38:48 PM  
Donnie...maybe after rescinding invites you should maybe just NOT invite people to the White House for a bit. I mean...just on the off chance that you get stuffed on that sort of thing...again...

How does the whole twitter feed thing work?  If I click on the link, the replies to Trump's tweet that I see are all obliterating Trump.  Is that the same for everyone or is there some kind of facebook like algorithm that goes on so that different people see different things?

^ Both of these.

/ I wish they wouldn't go, though
 
2017-09-24 08:41:27 PM  
Like most of Trump's base, they're missing a lot of front teeth.
 
2017-09-24 08:42:29 PM  
So he's celebrating foreigners who took jobs from hard working Americans?

Everyone sees the same thing.
 
2017-09-24 08:44:59 PM  
Hey Donnie, it's not about you.

But keep thinking it is. It will be useful to illustrate just how corrupt and pathetic this administration and you are.
 
2017-09-24 08:45:22 PM  
Out of curiosity, do the non-Americans bother to go? It seems kind of strange for them to really care about being "honored" by the American president, even if it weren't a dipshiat like Trump. I guess you might go just to say you met whoever was in office at the time.
 
2017-09-24 08:45:40 PM  
Demand to sing "Oh, Canada" first

/real anthem isn't "oh, Canada"
//it is "As Canadian as possible under the circumstances"
///I kid, I kid and I wished I lived there

I would want to go visit the leader of any foreign country.  Except maybe North Korea.

Depends.  Is it a country I'd like to plead for sanctuary in?

No surprise Trump suffers from conservative capitalization syndrome. "Ceremony" doesn't need a capital. Neither does "champion."

Just Malkin actually. A Finn, two Swedes, a German, a Swiss guy, and 9-8 Canada to USA.

Also should have been "pleased to inform," not "please to inform."  Trump is a farking menace to the English language.
 
2017-09-24 09:09:20 PM  
"Please to inform"?

Jesus, it's like he's some kind of racist Asian stereotype from the 50s. Can we get this dipshiat to lock himself in the panic room, or something? Nobody will figure out where he went for a year or two until the dipshiats who voted for him have all crawled back under their rocks? That sounds like a sensible solution.

Actually it should have been "I am pleased to inform you". The man dropped like half of the sentence.

I'm willing to overlook certain abbreviations due to the nature of the medium (though it's also why I don't use Twitter---140 characters is almost never enough to say anything meaningful).  Lots of Twitter users have learned to type up longer statements, screenshot them, then post those statements as images to Twitter in order to get in more characters.  That's what a president SHOULD be doing to make sure that everything reads correctly and doesn't make the poster look like a moron.

And really until this year, it was just part of the job and a short photo op. No different or difficult than team calendar photo day, a fan fest, or when you have to deliver tickets to fans. The Canadians might even be curious to compare with Justin Terrific.
