Afternoon Briefing: Donald Trump Opens Mouth, Idiotic Word Salad Drools Out
There’s a lot going on with Russia today, but I don’t want to wade into that yet. There’s plenty of bonehead salad in his afternoon press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö at the White House today.
Here, for instance, is Donald Trump not only defending his pardon of Sheriff Arpaio, but telling reporters that he announced it as the Hurricane approached because it would get “higher ratings.”

Let’s see. What else. Oh yeah: He confused two female reporters for the same person, and the Finnish President had to correct him.
On NAFTA, Trump also said that the President of Finland would NEVER sign that agreement.
NAFTA stands for North American Free Trade Agreement.
Finland is not in North America.
The Finnish President also had quite the look for Trump when Donny Trash reiterated once again that Mexico would pay for The Wall.
