By now, we are all used to trump’s visits to international meetings, where he sulks, broods and fumes, because he has no friends there and he has no idea how to deal with accomplished world leaders. The only joy he gets is when he meets Putin or Kim. Otherwise, his face tells pretty much the full story of his state of “mind”.
Granted, he left for this G7 meeting in France in a foul mood, having created crisis after crisis in national and international affairs last week. Granted his mind must have been focused on what lie to tell his supporters next or what part of the constitution to shred next, given that nothing is working in his favor so far. But, can’t he even pretend to be POTUS for a day?
So, let’s take a look at the visuals of the G7 meeting. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
The look on your face when your wife drags you to a party …

Foul mood with Macron, who tried his best to be Mr. Pacifier on day 1. Looks like Macron did not order any hamberders.

Why the sullen face after the “very special” new NAFTA deal utterance?

trump is shrinking. Who gave him that chair in the corner? And the high (plastic?) chairs to his clean-up crew.
Not happy at all. Where’s Daddy?

Sorry, wrong picture.
Launches of short-range ballistic missiles on Saturday were the seventh by North Korea since Trump and Kim met in June.https://t.co/l4svNzNqn3

He was most happy with his apprentice Boris Johnson. Still no joy or smile on his face. Just trying pretending to be alpha male.
“He needs no advice, he’s the right man for the job.”

trump rummaged through his twitter feed and found this little pacifier — from a month ago –

Watching these leaders pal around with hugs and kisses is enough to make trump weep.

The world’s biggest challenge? trump.
My focus at the #G7 is working with our allies to strengthen the middle class – not just in Canada but around the world as well. We just wrapped up a productive first day in France, tackling some of the world’s biggest challenges. More to come tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/55pIiguuNO

Yes, this was then — when the world respected and admired the POTUS –
Yeah, it’s lonely at the bottom. Reminds me of this parody song by Sandy and Richard Riccardi couple of years ago.
And let’s keep in mind, the only way to end this dystopian nightmare is to elect Democrats. So, let’s donate, volunteer, write, mock, educate, GOTV, whatever we can do in our individual capacities.
