No, he's literally "rewarding" the Penguins (owner) for showing up to the White House (and being white)

As if you needed another reason to dislike Canadaball, now it's Two Scoops' favorite sport.
Must be all the Russian players.

I wonder if Trump knows that there are more Canadians than any other nationality (including Americans) playing for the Penguins.

How would this require a renegotiation? This has been current operating practice over the last decade

How many white players are playing for the Penguins (or any other hockey team) compared to non-white players? Because I can guarantee you that that's the only reason Trump is even pretending to care about the Penguins; the other is the fact that they won the championship and Trump has a deep-rooted pathological "need" to win.

/speaking of penguins.... :(

Does Trump know when he speaks out loud, it's not going directly to twitter?  Does the guy know he can use more than 140 characters when he talks?

so sad

Odd. Burkle is a Democrat. Lemieux is the Penguins owner with the more conservative bent.

I hate that if this were any other president, this would be an obvious light hearted joke. Like, "Hey, your team is doing great why don't you come help me with me job" and everyone would laugh.

But with Trump it's a serious plea because he's got no allies. Everyone knows what a Michael Corleone he is and now he's grasping at random past friends who are just visiting to save his ass.

Oh, and he's running the country. Thank fark Obama did such a good job with the economy.

No, silly. Trump acting like a retard isn't the reward...

The reward is two-fold,

1) people who submit to Hirocheeto get to be in Trump's prescience
2) you get to grift extra hard, in this case by leading the negotiating of a new NAFTA

Trump should have just hired this guy to write him a good speech.

The only people who should be taking less business advice from Donald Trump than professional sports team owners would be people who run casinos.

Kim Jong Il was a notorious consumer of western culture, especially movies. Word is his personal collection of American movies was on par with the stock at an average Blockbuster. Not surprising the apple didn't fall far from the tree as far as liking American goods.

Casino managers already have a book based on his advice: "Don't do what Donny Don't does."

I'm thinking it's because they're maybe the only championship team that actually visited him without a fuss. But as stated earlier, most of those guys are from Canada. What do they give a shiat? Most probably thought it would be funny to laugh at the dumb American.

Every time I see a two scoops reference, it reminds me of raisin bran, and bran has fiber, and fiber helps you shiat, kinda like the posts on these boards, and raisin brand is made by post, the circle is complete.

Two scoops in raisin bran seems to help me shiat in real life and helps many a farker shiat on politics threads, i think pence is the bran though.
