It is a truth universally acknowledged that Donald Trump admires dictators, since he envies the power they have.
His Chief Mouthpiece and Badmouther of All Democrats, Sarah Huckabee Sanders (daughter of former Theocratic Party presidential candidate and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee) said just the other day that Trump “loves Kim Jong-un.”
He also admires Vladimir Putin, whom he publicly invited, during his 2016 campaign, to investigate Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Just the other day, Trump hosted Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi for a photo-op.
When Chinese president Xi Jin-ping made himself president for life, Trump indicated that was cool.
In recent days, protesters in Khartoum, the capital of the Republic of Sudan, have been demanding the end of the dictatorship of Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir, who ruled Sudan with an iron fist from 1989 until yesterday, when he resigned and was placed under house arrest.
In the middle of the night, associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones was at Trump’s pleasure palace, Mar-a-Lago, when al-Bashir was politely escorted from an official US Air Force plane at Fort Lauderdale’s airport by GOP operatives, who, under cover of darkness, drove al-Bashir to Mar-a-Lago.
Only an hour later, Trump, who seemingly spends most of his time either at Mar-a-Lago or at any one of his other resorts, welcomed al-Bashir with open arms.
“Omar,” Trump began, “I hate Muslims in general, but my close personal Egyptian buddy, al-Sisi, told me when he was with me in my Oval Office that he admires your ability to stay in power.”
Al-Bashir thanked Trump for his hospitality and asked him whether he has any harems at Mar-a-Lago, but Trump immediately deflected the old goat’s question by praising William Barr, who is, nominally, his Attorney General, but who is acting more as his personal attorney, for accusing the FBI of spying on his 2016 campaign, and for refusing to tell Congress yesterday whether he has already handed his boss a copy of the Mueller Report (https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/10/barr-fbi-spying-trump-campaign-1266531; https://www.politico.com/video/2019/04/10/barr-mueller-report-067974).
Later today, we will also post on why Ecuadorian President Lenin [sic!] Moreno asked Prime Minister Theresa May to expel WikiLeaks’ Chief Jerk, Julian Assange, from the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London.
