It is insulting. Sadly, there are those who are so loyal to Trump, that they won't care. If anything, some will look at this as "the rest of the world can kick rocks, #MAGA".

And along the way, insist that it's not brutish at all, but in fact a genius plan.

Trump will spread crap over everything he touches, and his followers will - at the same time:
  • Insist that it's not crap, it's sophisticated aftershave, and anyone calling it crap suffers from TDS, yet also:
  • Laugh at everybody for having to smell Trump's crap.

The USA is a huge country. But this isn't enough for some people. It's about that ego.

Trump calls a lot of women "nasty"......a real man would have taken the high road if he felt disrespected.

Unlike most, I've actually been there. Unless you like seal hunting and rock climbing, not much to do.

Actually, it's just that Trump is profoundly upset because an anonymous source has uncovered his true intention for Greenland. Thanks to this anonymous source, the entire deal and evil scheme behind it fell through. Evidently, according to this unnamed source, Trump intended to acquire Greenland and rename it "Liberal Island."

He, in an attempt to hide his mother-of-all-evil schemes, was going to make Liberal Island irresistible for Joe and Jane Liberal (both Xhe, so don't be offended). There was to be free health care, free education, forgiveness for ANY outstanding debt, all the pot, crack, LSD, and opioids one could ever want (no tobacco though, because that's bad for you... oh, and no plastic straws), houses of ill-repute for ANY sexual preference imaginable on each street corner (woof, woof, wink, wink), two Planned Parenthood clinics per block, and a golden statue of Lenin, dressed in drag, in each city center, gender transformation centers aplenty, crying rooms/safe spaces/fidget spinners were to be provided with each flat, all electric autos, no aircraft, and best of all, no middle-aged white males were to be allowed on the island. Imbecile Omar and Occluded Cortex were to run the place. And of course the climate on the island, due to global warming, was to be similar to balmy San Diego. A veritable Utopia... At least that was the claim.

But by God, the cat is out of the bag now. Behind this nirvana-like facade, a horrendously evil plot was in the making--some say it was all Pence's idea, but perhaps Trump is simply using Pence as a scapegoat. Trump's real intention was to build over three dozen cleverly disguised "entry resorts" sporting well-hidden "showers" and crematoriums. These "resorts" were going to be claimed to be ports of entry into Liberal Island's interior Utopia. But in reality, the "resorts" were to be the end of the line for unsuspecting liberals. Luckily Trump's plan to implement what would have obviously been death camps was narrowly averted, thanks to this anonymous source.

So, no deal, Denmark. Sorry.

Of course Trump wasn't President then, democrat Woodrow Wilson was, so that was OK.
Willing buyer, willing seller.

That is not the case with Greenland. Understand the difference?

With global warming, the ice in Greenland is melting. It is believed there are extensive resources below the ice pack there such as copper and gold. Trump is trying to cash in on global warming!
