NATO is “preparing to deal with a child”

Heads of state from all 28 members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), including our own national embarrassment Donald Trump, will meet on May 25th and preparations are underway to accommodate the toddler-in-chief.

Officials have been instructed to keep it brief and dumb it down.

“It’s kind of ridiculous how they are preparing to deal with Trump,” said one source briefed extensively on the meeting’s preparations. “It’s like they’re preparing to deal with a child — someone with a short attention span and mood who has no knowledge of NATO, no interest in in-depth policy issues, nothing,” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “They’re freaking out.”

Nothing to add.

    The GOP cares about nothing. Obviously. I think even Nixon would have a problem with this.

  • Michael B. Conway

    I truly doubt he even knows what it means. National Atlanta Trade Operation?

    • Victor the Crab

      Probably thinks Neat-o Awesome Trump Outfit.

    Luckily, no one in the Trump administration reads Foreign Policy. I don’t think they’d find the assessments in this article flattering to The Dear Leader.

    If we make it to June without Donald Trump declaring war on Belgium or handing Angela Merkel another phony bill, we can count ourselves fortunate indeed.

    Keep Trump pacified in his crib with a
    bevy of urinating blond pussies to grab.

    I don’t think they should dumb anything at all down for him. Conduct the meeting for knowledgeable, thoughtful adults, and don’t cater to his nasty temper as he grows more and more agitated because he doesn’t understand a damn thing. Make him miserable.

    The ONLY concession to the fact that we elected a bad-tempered egotistical incompetent moron to the highest office in the land should be for someone from NATO to take whoever is the highest ranking person besides trump aside and tell them in no uncertain terms to keep the bloated orange toad’s stubby little fingers the fuck away from the nuclear codes.

      Yes!

  • How incredibly mortifying.

    Obviously this is just the “FAKE NEWS” spin. The truth is NATO is in awe of Dear Leader Trump’s very good brain and they are having difficulty deciding on how to respond to his oration skills in which he ruthlessly deploys words, the best words.
