Boris and the Donald – Two Clowns Admiring Each Other from Across the Pond

As many of us here in the Northern Hemisphere pray for Autumn to come, like by tomorrow – sadly, the heat ravages on and deludes many a mind. How do we know this?  Easy. We read the following:

‘Talented Mr. Johnson’: Trump says his friend Boris would make a ‘great’ UK Prime Minister

Boris Johnson would make a ‘great prime minister’ and Theresa May made a bad Brexit deal by ignoring his advice, US President Donald Trump told a British tabloid.

The US President described the former foreign secretary as “a very talented guy.”

“I like him a lot,” he said. “I have a lot of respect for Boris. He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me. I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point. I think he is a great representative for your country,” Trump told The Sun.


A budding bromance?

But you have to hand it the guy with orange hair.  He has the uncanny ability to pick out and appoint deranged nutjobs to high posts in his administration. Pompeo, Haley, Haspel, Bolton – need we go on? His pick for Prime Minister (no matter that it’s Britain) – Boris Johnson…sure, why not! The world is full of clowns (Boris Johnson in particular) and the nuttier or more mad they are – the more they are duly awarded with positions to make a complete mess of that in their charge – a cause for celebration in Gehenna.

One never knows what one is going to get with the dawn of each sweltering day from the Donald. The only ones who admire his every utterance, without question, are fawning TV and radio talk show hosts, who have the ability to ignore the truth day in and day out, and thus adore anything that escapes from the Donald’s pursed lips.

Others, on the other hand, take a more proactive method of protecting themselves when the Donald speaks.

Some cover their ears and yell; others run out into the streets screaming madly when they hear his voice and protest ‘something’. The more patient types listen, and then wonder just how many of their brain cells have been mutilated.

All we can surmise is that, basically, no matter what he’s yapping on about…everything the Donald undertakes will be huge or great, take your pick. Whether, in reality, any of the success he boasts about actually comes to pass – well, it’s kind of like the wondering whether anything Washington tries to convince us of, has even a tender chicken nugget of the truth about it.  Most of the time, it’s not chicken, just filler.

But good news…it appears there is hope that the budding bromance isn’t just a one-sided affair of two clowns admiring each others grease paint.

This from just a month ago…


Britain’s foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, told a closed-door gathering of conservatives that he had become “increasingly admiring of Donald Trump” and that he had “become more and more convinced that there is a method in his madness,” according to a recording of the discussion which lasted over an hour obtained by BuzzFeed. – via



What’s next for these two clowns?

Who knows.

Maybe a waltz around the dance floor?
