No Tangos For Trump

One year ago, the worst terror attack in Belgium’s history occurred at the Zaventum airport in Brussels.  At least 31 people were killed by simultaneous attacks at the airport and the subway systems.

While the Belgians were in the midst of scraping the blood off the walls of their airport, people were still dying.  Others had not yet been found amidst the rubble.

The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer pressed on with his trip to Cuba to watch an exposition game between the Tampa Rays and the Cuban National Team where he was videotaped doing the wave with Raul Castro and danced the tango at a state dinner in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  No Fred Astaire, it was as cringe-worthy as watching Geraldo Rivera on Dancing With The Stars.

Then-candidate Trump tweeted, “The president looks and sounds so ridiculous making his speech in Cuba, especially in the shadows of Brussels.”

Obama was roundly criticized for his stupendous insensitivity and lack of common decency.  He shrugged it off at a press conference with Argentinean President Mauricio Macri saying, “It is important for us to not respond with fear.  A lot of it is also going to be to say you do not have power over us.  We are strong.  Our values are right.”
Macri will meet with President Trump at the White House around 11 AM. Later in the day he is scheduled to hold meetings with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and with House Speaker Paul Ryan before attending an event with the US Chamber of Commerce.

According to Bloomberg, Macri will try to “rekindle a relationship that goes back three decades, but which hit the rocks before the US election” when he openly backed Hillary Clinton.

The report continues, “Macri will be looking to put that diplomatic indiscretion behind him as he attempts to leverage his past relationship with Trump to help open up access for Argentine products in the US market, even as the US leader threatens to re-write the NAFTA agreement with Mexico. As relations between the US and other Latin American countries are put on hold, Macri is in a unique position use the friendship with Trump to Argentina’s advantage.”

UPDATE:  President Trump and the leaders of Mexico and Canada agreed Wednesday to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the White House said Wednesday night. 

"It is my privilege to bring NAFTA up to date through renegotiation," Trump said in a statement. "It is an honor to deal with both President Peña Nieto and Prime Minister Trudeau, and I believe that the end result will make all three countries stronger and better."

The White House added that Trump "agreed not to terminate NAFTA at this time" and that all three leaders "agreed to proceed swiftly, according to their required internal procedures, to enable the renegotiation" of the trade deal to "the benefit of all three countries."

Squeal Team 6 Goes Full Boar

Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, the Ubaid tribe’s chieftain told The Times of London a herd of wild boars overran an ISIS position about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk, Iraq. 

Three fighters from ISIS were near a Peshmerga checkpoint in al-Rashad when some rampaging feral boars killed them.  Some refugees in the area saw the partially devoured bodies on the edge of a farm.

Three days before the boars attacked al-Assi said ISIS militants massacred 25 people fleeing to Kirkuk from ISIS-held Hawija on the road from Mosul to Baghdad.

Weighing over 600 lbs. and equipped with razor-sharp tusks, a group of wild boars will encircle an unsuspecting victim and attack from the rear.  It’s not a pretty sight, just ask Mason Verger from the Ridley Scott flick Hannibal.

Say it with me now:  Allahu Ham Hockbar!

Hey Shakespeare, You’re Mentally Lazy

Democrats still haven’t figured out why they keep losing elections.  When the Party leadership decided to make Tom Perez its chairman it signaled just how ruthless their politics are.

Whatever happened to that “When they go low, we go high” theme?  Perez’s sustained routine of profanity is calculated to motivate the base and bring the Party back into power.  I didn’t think there was anyone crazier than Debbie Wasserman Schultz?  Silly me.

While on a contrived “Unity Tour” in Las Vegas, Perez pointed out there was a child in the audience but kept right on swearing.

A feeble brain uses profanity to express itself forcibly.  When you’ve lost CNN…

Who’s Your Favorite X-Men?

…apparently picking Caitlyn Jenner would be inappropriate.

Via The Hollywood Reporter—Conservative street artist Sabo has appropriated Stephen King’s story It to portray Caitlyn Jenner as the evil clown.  His posters and fake advertisements showed up Sunday in Los Angeles around the Fox News Bureau and Fox Studios in time for Tucker Carlson’s interview of Jenner.

In the faux ads appearing on bus benches for the upcoming movie, Jenner is seen peeking out of a sewer drain, where the clown from It dwells, trying to lure unsuspecting children into his lair. “Tonight on Tucker Carlson: IT,” reads the text. “Based on a novel reality.”

Fox News did not respond to The Hollywood Reporter’s request for comment.

Happy Earth Day From The Hermit Nation (They Really Know How To Celebrate)

The bright lights of Seoul, South Korea (left) as seen from the Hubble telescope stand in stark contrast to the darkness of North Korea. Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, is the small dot in the center. China is to the far right.

About That ”Super-Mighty” Boast From The Norks

Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper for North Korea’s ruling Worker’s Party wrote, “In the case of our super-mighty pre-emptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only US imperialists’ invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas, but the US mainland and reduce them to ashes.”

Some are taking the blustery boasts seriously.  Chickens throughout the tiny hermit kingdom are crossing the road to get away from the tubby tyrant’s long-range missiles.

New In The O’Reilly Series Of Books: Killing Bill

On Tuesday, the day before the Intertoobs blew up over the firing of Bill O’Reilly from Fox News, protesters were demanding the cable news network pull the plug on him.  According to NBC News, the protesters were handing out fliers with O’Reilly’s likeness and the warning “Danger”.  They hung movie theater-sized posters throughout New York City and asked passersby, “Have you been sexually harassed by Bill?”
Fox waited until Wednesday to announce it was parting ways despite rumblings for weeks.  In its statement 21st Century Fox said, “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.”
The attorney for the oustered star of The O’Reilly Factor, Mark Kasowitz said of the decision, “[O’Reilly] is being subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America.”
Kasowitz is being a bit of a fabulist calling the roiling scandal unprecedented.  The cover-up, as they say, is worse than the scandal.
O’Reilly is clearly not a darling of the Left and he doesn’t give the Right any warm fuzzies either.  The consensus seems to be he is very domineering and difficult to work with based on his well-documented tantrums such as the leaked video from ABC’s Inside Edition.
His release from Fox isn’t the first time he’s been fired.  He had a brief stop for an internship at WPLG Channel 10, an ABC-affiliated television station located in Miami.
O'Reilly's most memorably bloody shows have mostly involved liberal targets. And his twin Moby Dicks, the interviews he'd most love and knows he'll never get, are both liberals: Jesse Jackson (O'Reilly has devoted 56 shows, at last count, to probing the finances of Jackson's nonprofit foundation) and Hillary Clinton (for years, a doormat emblazoned with her face sat in front of his office). 
O'Reilly will even admit to lying in bed at night fantasizing about Clinton—about interviewing her, that is. In his dream, he asks half a dozen pointed questions about Whitewater and the suicide of Clinton White House attorney Vince Foster. The seething Clinton finally breaks her silence with a command to her Secret Service escort: "You can shoot him now, boys." 
"That would be great television,” says a wistful O'Reilly, presumably referring to an interview and not the shooting part. "That would be an Event. Jesse Jackson, too. But neither one of them is ever going to happen."
I never much cared for the guy except when he verbally annihilated squishes like Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera.  Those moments I will miss.
