A trade war over A$AP Rocky?!  LOOOOOL  Trump makes a bag of hammers look like god-level intellect.
 
2022-07-02 6:15:51 PM  
This is so funny. The Swedish justice minister knew that Trump couldn't just unilaterally do this, so he ignored him and went on with what he was doing. I wonder how many other stories of him doing this are going to come out.

Christ, does he ever not YELL into a farking microphone? Does he not know how they work?

He's like Chris "taking a shiat as I talk" Berman levels of annoying and stupid.

So other than "being briefed by Kanye," and trump being a child, why did this reach the level of presidential attention, much less action..

Trump wanted to use Kanye as a spoiler candidate for the 2020 election. Keeping him happy with this was almost certainly a means to that end.

I hate the fact that first sentence has entered the human vernacular, and actually has meaning. In a sane world that would have been the incoherent ramblings of a schizophrenic.

A$AP and co. said the guy had been harassing them and hurling racial epithets at them well.

So if he'd hurled the epithets poorly, would they have all just become friends and bond ovwr the incident?
 
2022-07-02 6:35:57 PM  
Why the hell is the POTUS personally intervening in something even the state department probably wouldn't get involved in - it was a fairly minor charge, and those dudes in Sweden were being d***s - there were aggravating circumstances.

It was never that serious - dude got arrested, sentence suspended and a one-way ticket out of the country.

Embarrassing for the country....like his entire presidency.

Have folks forgotten that during his run up for the Presidency, he sent campaign solicitations to world leaders to contribute to his campaign fund? Straight up.

The real kicker here is that he was getting advice on who to support from Kayne West.

Let that sink in. Kanye "I Desperately Need My Meds" West was giving Trump foreign policy advice. That's how broken this country is.  We let this happen. It was our watch, and we let this happen.

Thanks for reminding me of how utterly moronic Jared Kushner is. That was his master plan for the election to peel away the black vote from the Democratic Party.

I'd put that right up there with GWB stating ketchup is a vegetable.

I can easily picture drumpf not knowing it was just a candy. He seems to not understand or know of lots of things most normal folks know.

Like injecting bleach is a bad idea and they had to issue a disclaimer telling his supporters not to do it, etc.

Good thing he didn't know about this. He would have done with the dollar sign guy.

California is one of the largest importers of Swedish goods. In 2021, California imported around $1 billion worth of goods from Sweden. In 2021, transportation equipment equated to $524 million of all imports from Sweden. Other goods imported into California from Sweden were chemicals, computer and electronic products, and non-electrical machinery. Though Sweden is California's 32nd largest export destination, California is the second largest exporting state to Sweden in the US. California exported $623 million of products to Sweden in 2021. The key exports from California were computer and electronic goods, chemicals, transportation equipment, miscellaneous manufactured commodities. Exported computer and electronic products to Sweden made up $347 million of the total. US Department of Commerce

Is this about A$AP Rocky?  Because I had never heard of him before Trump took up his cause.  I actually listened to a few of his songs.

I didn't think it was that good, but this verse stuck in my head:

So get up off my YKK
The president a a-hole (F*ck off)
Prayin' for a JFK
All we got was KKK
AKA AK that you target not from Target but from Walmart
Then it's a-ok
F*ck them boys no KY with this SK leave them DOA
AR in the ER its the state of mind of every state
Say your grace you better pray

[gun shot sound effects]

This is the guy Trump vouched for. Isn't he everthing conservatives are supposed to hate? Total gangster thug arrested on aggravated assault?

Law and order president or trying just a little too hard to show that he really wasn't racist and was trying to put America first? He didn't seem nearly as concerned when Jamal Khashoggi was murdered.

I'm 100% American, but I'm 50% of Swedish descent and I don't mind the Swedish Chef on the Muppets and I even enjoyed the "Good Socialism" chapter in PJ O'Rourke's "Eat The RIch", but I'm offended by the attitudes of today's Republicans.

"The Swedes, left wing though they may be, are thoroughly bourgeois. They drive Saabs like we do, know their California chardonnays, have boats and summer cottages, and vacation in places that are as much like home as possible, which is to say at Disneyland." - P.J. O'Rourke

We aren't really that different at all.

This is not a picture of my grandmother but I don't see how she's very different from her.   They both learned the language of the country they settled in but still brought some of their culture with them.

Considering republicans of all stripes make these silly statements (and yes, of course, Ds too, but never to the dumb level Rs seem to manage), it's hard to keep perfect track of which R said which dumb comment.

Yep.  Held, convicted with suspended sentence and given the boot with a persona non grata.  He's lucky the EU didn't follow suit.
