What if you hosted a G7 and no one came?
 
2020-05-21 10:58:05 PM  
Does seem like a good excuse to cancel it this year.

"But White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany declined to elaborate on the response from world leaders."

I bet we all can guess. "Fark that", but in polite diplomatic terms.

If the plan is to hold it at the White House proper (as opposed to Camp David), then the plan almost certainly includes having the ambassadors and diplomats and dignitaries and heads of state stay at the Post Office Motel. Even without covid-19 being a problem, the G6 would be right to tell Trump to eat a dick with that plan of his.
 
2020-05-22 2:25:26 AM  
What if the G6 held a virtual meeting instead and didn't invite Trump?
 
2020-05-22 7:19:34 AM  
I wonder how long the US will remain part of the G7?
 
2020-05-22 7:21:15 AM  
We're still a member?!

"According to the White House, Trump discussed his intentions with French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday. But White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany declined to elaborate on the response from world leaders."

"fark No!" in a french accent.

Although this is a step up from having it at Mar-a-Covid.

Trump would be having flashbacks to being cut out of the NY socialite scene.

Followed shortly by nuclear missile launches.
 
2020-05-22 7:32:32 AM  
"It looks like G7 may be on because we've done well," Trump told reporters Thursday. "We're ahead of schedule in terms of our country, and some of the other countries are doing very well. It looks like G7 will be on-a full G7."


So says the Energizer Bunny of bullshiat and lies.
/jeezus, i wish he would have his rallies, with his followers packed in
like farking whos in whoville at Xmastime.

Guess he wants to try to catch them when they laugh at him behind his back.

Hey World Leaders! Remember the spoiled, petulant c*nt who can take ANY situation and make it worse just by being in the room? Well, great news! He's been repeatedly exposed to a deadly virus, he refuses to wear a mask, and HE WANTS YOU TO VISIT HIM IN PERSON.
 
2020-05-22 7:37:32 AM  
World leaders:  You going to wear a mask?

Trump: I get tested everyday.

WL: Your test aren't 100%.  Tell us you'll wear a mask, and we'll consider it.

Trump: All the time?

WL: Yes, all the time, even in front of cameras.

Trump: You promise no one will make fun of me?

WL: We promise to try to make sure no one makes fun of your mask.

Trump: No, I mean, me, in general.

WL: *sigh* We see you after the election.  Maybe.
 
2020-05-22 7:37:42 AM  
It would make me laugh my arse off if they said no thanks and instead invited Biden and Obama as guests of honor.  The toddler in chief would rage tweet himself into an aneurysm.  Because he's morbidly obese and has tertiary syphilis...
 
2020-05-22 7:38:50 AM  
Lol. What normal person would give up the opportunity to avoid seeing trump in person?

There's nothing that will convince him that this pandemic is nothing more than an inconvenience to him.

Just a photo op for him.  The other leaders can send cardboard standees.  He'll knock one down to get to the front.

CarnySaur: There's nothing that will convince him that this pandemic is nothing more than an inconvenience to him.


I think he may understand the disease is real, since he permits testing and stuff at the White House even if he feels he has to burnish his strongman image in public.

He definitely believes that the economic disruptions and statistics on things like total deaths are plots to sabotage his re-election using the disease as an excuse.
 
2020-05-22 8:09:16 AM  
Donald can wish for whatever he wants.

Doesn't mean other leaders will be stupid enough to follow him.

/they might be stupid enough..sigh

Ahead of schedule?  The schedule was 0 back in March.

That'd be embarrassingly awesome.

"We seem to be having trouble with your feed, Mr Trump. Can you repeat that?"

[no sound, as they have him on mute]

"While they sort that out, let's continue."
 
2020-05-22 8:14:49 AM  
pretty obvious that he's gonna stamp his feet and demand everyone show up, a bunch or all nations say no, what's left of American foreign power erodes a little more.  Obvious enough that doing this is almost purposefully hurting America.

I've seen suggestions in the past that to avoid civil unrest from protestors that they hold conferences like that on an aircraft carrier.

I understand the USS Theodore Roosevelt is available

/ Apology notes will read "Sorry I cannot attend. I have a schedule conflict because I need to attend the G6 around that date"
 
2020-05-22 8:19:19 AM  
they gonna have it at mar a lago ?

i think a lot of the original cover up of #s in florida is a direct result of Mar A Lago being the epicenter of infection in Florida

the # of cases that came out of that place, the # of dignitaries infected etc

Angela called and said that her cat needed waxing at that time so she will need to take a rain check.

Boy, a lot libs here are willing to weaken America standing as the number one nation in the world just to ensure their hatred of a success president doesn't get a few photo ops with world leaders.
 
2020-05-22 8:32:53 AM  
He really wants to go all in on pretending to be president before the election, doesn't he?

World leaders can stay home.  There is no one of consequence in the U.S. government to meet with at the moment.  Wait until January when we start rebuilding the place and have actual leadership again.

Everytime Trump tries to talk, someone's unmuted and typing on a Model M.

Just because I'm telling people I'm having a party doesn't mean anyone will show up.

There are going to be some fingers pointed when Putin shows up in their eventual teleconference on Zoom instead of a physical meeting (someone must have given him the code for the meeting by mistake), and since America is hosting we decide he should stay on since Trump spent most of the 2019 G-7 arguing that they should invite Russia back in.

He's entitled to all the photo ops he wants - in a mask. That's the issue here - there's a global pandemic - and there is no reason that the G7 cannot be held virtually. Don't you think it's better to be safe than sorry? Don't you think other G7 members might be thinking the same thing? Because these are the things that are actually being discussed.

I'm pretty sure that the least thing the actual world leaders want is to hear our tiny-handed obese orange treasonweasel blurt out more self-congratulations, virtual or not. The less a foreign government official has to deal with his nonsense, the happier they will be.

A lot of G7 leaders take commercial flights. They don't have or want an air force one with special pizza freezers and a Gold toilet to carry them around. Is a meeting even possible now?

It got garbled in translation, but what she's having waxed isn't really a "cat," exactly.
