Maybe Joe Pesci should play Trump in the biopic….

This today. And yeah it does seem to fit the “too good to check” box.* I’d appreciate a link to a US news source that verifies it.

*Added Monday morning: Sure enough, German government says this didn’t happen. But I still want Joe Pesci for the biopic.

  1. I've been trying to find a link to the Joe Pesci as Ronald Grump episode but I only get stuff about it. Although I love Pesci, I found the muppet version of Donald Grump better. (Those episodes are on Youtube.)

  2. Roger Cohen partially confirms this in an op-ed in The New York Times today, although it's described as a bill for the future instead of the past. The first paragraph says, "When Donald Trump met Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany earlier this month, he put on one of his most truculent and ignorant performances. He wanted money — piles of it — for Germany’s defense, raged about the financial killing China was making from last year’s Paris climate accord and kept “frequently and brutally changing the subject when not interested, which was the case with the European Union.”

  3. Angela Merkel is used to callous bullying by male statesmen .. Famously, Vladimir Putin insisted on bringing his (large and black) dog to meet her when she visited his home. Merkel is afraid of dogs, and (naturally) Putin claims he did not know.

    His smirk in these photos says otherwise.

    Putin did not intimidate Angela, and I doubt if Trump did either.
