I have now seen the video and read about "it" in the Washington Post but I still can't believe it.

Donald Trump brushed some "dandruff" off the President of France's
shoulder on a live t.v. feed and then said, "let me get that piece of
dandruff .... now you are perfect." Afterwards he called Kim Jung Un
"an honorable man."

WTF is wrong that man?

How it got on Macron's shoulder is anyone's guess.

6. I think

The ass was trying to belittle him by saying that out loud and brushing away so called dandruff.

It’s to bad later when the they were outside
Macron didn’t turn to Trump and say
“ hey man you got some bird shit in your hair you should really have someone get that out for you”

Also since Trump seems to have a handshake problem world leaders should wear those joke hand zappers the first one at least would get away with it and after that Trump would be s bit leary of a hand grab.

And he told King right on the show that he had bad breath. This is how he belittles people to get the upper hand, except it makes him look like the asshole he is.

8. Like when they lean in for the two kiss hug.


Macron ought to tell him his breath smells like an ox fart. And be sure it is loud enough to be picked up by the microphones.

I am still stunned he would say it was dandruff he was flicking off. Why couldn’t he say lint...if he said anything?? What an ass. He just wanted to say something embarrassing. I dare him to do that to Little Rocket Man.

16. I don't think Macron need say a thing.

He needs no type of grooming assistance a 71-year-old man with candy-floss sculpture hair plugs can provide. The President is jealous of Macron, so he's handsily trying to assert dominance by invading his space bubble, hoping some of that will rub off on him.

12. You have to know arrogant men to get it

Bullies act that way.

Most men grow out of bullshit dominance play like that by the time they leave high school.

But you still get some of it with men walking down the hallway and refusing to move, shouldering around other men at bars, etc.

It’s a guy thing. A guy thing that sucks. You have to know arrogant asshole men to see this kind of behavior, but it’s not that rare.

21. What's wrong with Trump?

Well, if you have a few days we can discuss it, but it's a lengthy and deeply troubling subject. There's nothing wrong with Trump that a few decades of intense psychological therapy can't make a dent in it. There will never be a "cure", he'll always be a narcissistic piece of shit, but he can get a little better. Nothing near "normal", ever, though.

22. Betty Bowers explained it on twitter:




“When the aging gorilla is confronted with the much more virile, new alpha-male, he shows submissiveness by grooming the alpha-male, but the gesture is actually a vain attempt by the old gorilla to humiliate his much younger rival.”

and lack of human dignity, personal humility and thimble shallow intellect should be enough to sully America’s standing and reputation in the world for modern history.

But we have to live daily with the tortured knowledge that this dense, twisted narcissist punk is enabled, supported and manipulated by the most corrupt, thieving, anti-earth, anti-humanity, $ worshipping, corporate ass kissing, country destroying, Republican political scum, ever.

And millions of Americans are proudly STUPID and hateful enough to validate his empty soulless values.
