Oh, God, Here We Go Again: Dear Denmark

Dear Denmark-

I want to apologize, on behalf of all adult-Americans, for the childish and insulting behavior of the Occupant of the Oval Office toward your nation and its leaders.

Please believe that we ordinary Americans have great respect for you, and profound gratitude for your steadfast friendship and alliance in promoting past shared geopolitical principles of advancing world peace, justice, and social equity.

Please know that an actual majority of us STILL share those principles and goals, and are appreciative of your national examples of tolerance and progressive change and non-violent solutions to troubling issues around terrorism, economic inequity and world migration.

We are, for the moment, stuck with the Occupant and his sycophants, but we as ordinary citizens are doing all we can to hasten his departure in a manner consistent with the above-mentioned shared principles.

As you are aware from your educated appreciation of your own and world history, these profound errors cannot be rectified in a day.

We love you peeps, and are grateful for your forbearance.

embarrassedly,
Bright

3. A liberal member of Denmark's Parliament said Trump's comment was "surreal and absurd"...

I think that is a general consensus in Denmark.

8. Has tRump banned us from eating Danish Pastries yet?

Will this become the Freedom Fires of his presidency?

9. Republicans are going to come up with "Freedom Pastries." That will show us.

Like they did with french fries after France balked at Bush's Iraq lies. :p

10. LOL!!

Freedom Pastries!!! The sister of Freedom Fries.

I wouldn't put it past these nincompoops. When you can throw a snowball in the US Senate to prove Climate Change is a hoax? Anything's possible.

11. Should also add:

Sorry that Trump's minions are so stupid that they think Denmark is the land of wooden shoes and windmills.

(I'm in the Netherlands right now and, I kid you not, some guy heard me speaking with a friend last night, asked if I was American, and then asked why Americans know nothing about other countries. It was in relation to mocking tweets about the wooden shoes and windmills. Gotta love the Dutch directness.)

12. Thanks from Denmark!

I have been in contact with my politicians here, with the idea on how to get the best out of this very bad situation. USA has been too pushy in many ways, and now the iron fist is really out of the velvet glove. The sad truth is that USA are no longer able to enforce power, it is just leaking power. In our area this is not to Russia or China but to ourselves.

Trump is now openly threatening close allies as Germany, Greece and the UK with sanctions. In this situation the European countries are finally on the road to finding their own local solutions. With your mad king in front, this is the best time to kick-start this process of more independence. Cooperation is essential, but friends should be treated as friends.
