Donald Trump wants to be a dictator really, REALLY bad. So much so that the man is positively green with envy and simultaneously swooning in admiration each and every time he comes into contact with one. Literally, his lips are chapped from all the kissing of Vladimir Putin’s ass cheeks and he’s gone so far as to invite Kim Jong Un on a date.
I honestly wouldn’t be a bit surprised if his bedroom were decked out on posters of them.
And according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, Trump fangirls just as hard in front of a dictator’s face as he does on Twitter.
WSJ revealed today that Trump caused quite a bit of surprise during the recent G7 Summit with his fellow world leaders when he rained his praises on the President of Egypt.
“Inside a room of the ornately decorated Hotel du Palais during last month’s Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France, President Trump awaited a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi,” the Journal reported.
“Mr. Trump looked over a gathering of American and Egyptian officials and called out in a loud voice: ‘Where’s my favorite dictator?’ Several people who were in the room at the time said they heard the question,” the publication’s description continued.
The Wall Street Journal noted that they were unable to determine for sure if Sisi heard Donald’s comment.
“Even if lighthearted, Mr. Trump’s quip drew attention to an uncomfortable facet of the U.S.-Egypt relationship,” WSJ added. “Mr. Sisi has drawn criticism for his authoritarian rule since taking power following a 2013 coup. Under Mr. Sisi, Egyptian authorities have been accused of detaining thousands of political opponents, of torturing and killing prisoners and of stymying political opposition, according to reports by the United Nations, U.S. State Department and nongovernmental groups.”
The paper went on to explain that Steve Mnuchin, John Bolton and Larry Kudlow were present as well.
“Within minutes of the quip, Mr. Sisi met Mr. Trump and reporters were allowed in. Mr. Trump, among other comments, celebrated his relationship with Mr. Sisi, noting that the two leaders had begun talking with each other soon after Mr. Trump won the presidential election in 2016,” the report read.
I guess maybe we should be happy that he didn’t just slobber all over his face.
