St. Donald Gives A Press Conference With the President of Finland

So I watched the press conference Trump and the president of Finland, Sauli Niinistö gave today.  It is wonderful comedy*.  If you don't have time to watch all of it, I have picked one clip from the very end for your entertainment.

Are you sitting comfortably?  Now take your mind back to how US presidents used to act in public at press conferences shared with visiting world leaders,  and then click on this:

Another wonderful clip would have covered the Finnish journalist asking Niinistö what favors Trump had asked of him.  When I realized that she had actually said that out aloud I laughed so hard that the objects on my desk shivered.

Trump tells us (including in many places at this press conference) that he is the most unfairly hounded and harassed of all world leaders, ever.  In fact, he has been so pure, perfect and pious in his actions that he will be sanctified while still hale and orange.  St. Donald.

Orange just might be the new shade of narcissism.
