According to Trump, "we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen" (him and Chinese President Xi), but I say he's full of shit. I have not and will never see this cake he says is "beautiful". Although I'd be more concerned about how it tastes than how it looks.
So Trump says to Maria Bartiromo (re what he told Xi) "we've just launched 59 missiles, heading to Iraq". Iraq? I'll assume he misspoke, but who knows? Maybe he thinks the missiles were going to Iraq instead of Syria.
Then Trump told a bigger lie. "Anybody that uses gases to do that to young children and babies, it's OK", the Orange sexual-assaluter-in-chief says was Chinese President Xi's response when he told him about the 59 Tomahawks. But that is how Trump feels! Or how he SAYS he feels. But I say he lied because I think he launched the missiles to sell the narrative that he didn't collude with Russia to steal the election (SWTD #374).
Selling this narrative is why his idiot son Eric said (following the strike) "If there was anything that Syria did, it was to validate the fact that there is no Russia tie". Bullshit. I'm not saying there is a Russia tie (although there surely does appear to be one, given all the advisors who communicated with Russian officials/are retroactively registering as foreign agents), only that this action doesn't "validate" that there isn't one.
In the Chinese media, Xi is portrayed as the Adult in the room. And that the Chinese President standing up to the foolish Trump could "help elevate Mr. Xi's stature at home (What Chinese News Reports Tell Us About Beijing's View of Trump).
Also, "soon after the meeting ended, Chinese state media scolded Trump for his military action in Syria" (Trump-Xi meeting concluded without gaffe, but criticism soon followed). The STATE media! Proof that Xi did not agree with Trump. Perhaps he just said he did. Or Trump lied. I'm going with the later. He lied about Xi agreeing with him, just as he lied about the freaking chocolate cake!
Because he is a pathological liar. He cannot help himself but to lie about everything! BTW, CNN reports that Trump's Mar-a-Lago kitchen slapped with 13 health violations "including three categorized as high priority ... [which is a violation] which could contribute directly to a foodborne illness or injury and include items such as cooking, reheating, cooling and hand-washing".
Eat the cake and you could die. Via "illness causing bacteria on plates served in the dining room" (quote from 4/13/2017 airing of "All in with Chris Hayes" guest hosted by Joy Reid). Although probably not. Trump and Xi are both OK.
Unlike what would happen if TrumpCare is ever passed. Then we know for sure that people will die. Possibly an extra 50,000 people a year!
