Sure, Putin Is a Thug, But, Herr Trump, He's Barking Mad.

The Washington Post reports that Germans have got Donald Trump pretty well sorted out.

It’s official: Germans are more worried about President Trump than Russian President Vladimir Putin.

That, at least, is the result of a poll published Friday by FG Wahlen for public broadcaster ZDF, in which a whopping 78 percent of Germans asked said they were “very concerned” about Donald Trump's policies, up from 62 percent in January. Meanwhile, 58 percent said they were worried about the politics of Russian President Vladimir Putin, while 40 percent said they weren't.

“It sounds tough, but after this memorable press conference one hopes that there's a good medical department in the White House to check whether everything really is all right with this man,” wrote Veit Medick, a Washington correspondent for Der Spiegel.

Euro-oligarchs made a jackpot of Europe with their neoliberal looting schemes they call the eurozone and EEU. If that ain't dismantled before it collapses Germans will find themselves right back in 1932 when a deflationary death spiral was triggered from Hoover recalling loans. Trump is the least of their worries.

Snap. From Merckel to Hitler right before your eyes. And they'll put the blame on the Jews again, too.

So is history there for dumbass barbarians to never learn a goddamn thing?

Not sure how to respond to your comment, Anon. There was some room for thought and for that I'll thank you.
