Interesting, and a cute photo although rats scare me generally.

After watching your pathetic "idiot" address the UN General Assembly and being late to boot, plus of course the derisive laughs by the delegates, maybe as Trump has German heritage he is the ultimate "Hanover Rat" ??
I'm bloody sure the residents of the Duchy of Hanover would be aghast at this thought - my apologies to them!

Loved to watch the US delegation sitting there in awe and wonder at their leader. Sarah Hucklebee-Sanders would have made Paul Joseph Goebbels proud. Paul's top student from the Uni of PJG's Class of "Lies and Crap".
Make America Great and Patriotic - more like make the USA the laughing stock of the World!

President Donald Trump boasts of ‘very large brain’
DONALD Trump says the UN was laughing with him - not at him - during his speech, and China has “total respect” for him and his “very, very large ... brain”.

Could someone in the US, just put this disillusioned "clown" in a straight jacket??????
The old matrons of the Tea Party looney tribe could administer to his needs..........what's he like doing with women - "Groping sexual parts of their bodies!" And he is on record BOASTING all about this.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Pinky and the Brain are the only rats I like. And, Remy the chef.
