Oh, I thought it was a "pining for the fjords" joke. Still funny, though.

The difference between Trump and Greenland?

Greenland's not for sale

Trump wants to buy Greenland for one reason and one reason only: to rename it Trumpland.
 
2019-08-18 2:59:20 AM  
Only when the National Enquirer finally turns on Trump will he realize that the stupid shiat that comes out of his piehole has consequences.

Such a strong manly leader, not a laughing stock apology machine like that Obama feller.
 
2019-08-18 4:17:41 AM  
Either Trump will deny that it ever happened, or he'll say that he's in deep negotiations and then forget about it.
Later on his idiot followers will claim that Trump added a 51st state.

Thank you!

Let's at least try to give credit to the Clobberchair staffer who came up with it.

Are you feeling respected, America?
 
2019-08-18 4:25:31 AM  
WINNING!
 
2019-08-18 4:27:40 AM  
Is Mexico paying for this too?

Trump was right about one thing. I am tired of all this winning. But boy, he has an odd definition of what counts as a win.
 
2019-08-18 4:28:59 AM  
Greenland has mineral reserves that will be there for the picking when the ice melts ... but Trump doesn't publicly believe in climate change, so he can't officially state that is the reason.
 
2019-08-18 4:33:28 AM  
Now that is a long callback.  Well done indeed.
 
2019-08-18 4:40:26 AM  
Joke shmoke, anything that encourages, or even better, accelerates his demise is A-okay with me.

I must hsve mised that particular nugget of idiocy. When did trump say he wanted to buy Greenland, in what context and why?

/don't doubt it

I was expecting something more like "ORANGE SUB-HUMAN IN WHITE HOUSE"

But then I remembered that was the Post, and the Post has Cheeto lipstick.

Probably his best idea to date.  Greenland is looking like a hot piece of real estate.

Ah, the good old days when the Dow was sub 1k, so it would have been about a 1% drop. Serious buckages to be sure. You could have filled your gas tank just about twice for that

There are better stories on the web . . . but Fark did have a link, so that's what ya got. Regardless, you're welcome for the link.

I'm Generation X and more informed than most people and I'm still trying to piece this together...

But I'm sure it's good.

"Hot piece of real estate"

I heard that Alaska salmon are dying in the heat.

The question is, will it put him off? People like Trump tend to be incapable of understanding that "it's not for sale" sometimes actually means "it's not for sale" and not "offer me more money".

I'm sure it was never HIS money he was offering, anyway.

We should just take Greenland by force

//Maybe we can just take Greenland by declaration

It would be extremely easy to pivot to a "climate change is happening but humans can't do anything about it" (and therefore get in position to exploit newly exposed resources). That's already the position held by many conservatives. Any attempt to reconcile it with his previous obstinance would just be ignored.
