I'm impressed. I'm so impressed, I'm breathless. I'm so impressed I'm taking Xanax.
Mexico is our third largest goods trading partner. Don Donald decides to make them an offer they can't refuse and they promptly refuse it.
I read "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo. I saw all "The Godfather" movies. I even read "Fool's Die" by Puzo. I enjoyed the books and the movies. Did they teach me anything about international politics? No, but I am sure that if Donald dons the role of a Don and sets out to represent the United States, he won't do very well.
The Italians actually have a few words for this. They are "asino", "somaro" and "ignorante". You could also use, "sciocco", "stupido", "fesso", "buffone" and "imbecille".
Oh yeah, after playing the fool (fare il buffone), Don Donald follows up by pretending that the decision to cancel the summit with Mexico was "mutual". Sei veramente cosi stupido? Quanto stupido si può ottenere?
