Closing Thought–13Nov18

As a grad of international relations I find our country’s leaders are woefully misinformed…..this time it was Our Dear Supreme Leader “Trump”……he gets confused easily…….

President Donald Trump confused the Baltic states in Europe with the Balkans—and chastised leaders of the former for starting wars in the 1990s that lead to the break-up of Yugoslavia, French daily Le Monde reported.

Trump reportedly made the mistake in a White House meeting with Dalia Grybauskaitė of Lithuania, Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia and Raimonds Vējonis of Latvia in April.

In case you also are confused let me help out with a couple of short videos…….

In case the confusion is still there….yet another video……

Did any of that help in the understanding?

Class Dismissed!

  1. This stuff with Trump is getting sillier all the time. If the man cannot tell the difference between the Baltic States and The Balkans, he really should not have the right to hold down that job.
    Perhaps they need to instigate a basic test for any prospective president? He would fail mine.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. air force one’s pretty big and europe’s a few hours away–I take it nobody thought to bring a world map and a laser pointer for a pop quiz? On the other hand, that thing on Dump’s head might leap off and chase the laser point instead, so suppose that couldn’t happen.
