Both politicians and pundits have made many bizarre remarks about the U.S. strike on a Syrian airbase last month, from President Trump’s childlike description of the chocolate cake he was eating at the time to Brian Williams repeatedly praising the “beautiful” war footage on MSNBC.

Now Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has pulled off an impressive feat, combining the Marie Antoinette element of Trump’s remarks and the callousness of Williams’s commentary. During a speech on Monday Ross recalled the scene at Mar-a-Lago on April 6, when Trump dined with Chinese President Xi Jingping as two two navy destroyers launched 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria.

“Just as dessert was being served, the president explained to Mr. Xi he had something he wanted to tell him, which was the launching of 59 missiles into Syria,” Ross said. “It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment.”

The crowd chuckled at Ross’s remark, according to Variety, and he added: “The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment.”

The “entertainment” might not have cost Trump anything, but USA Today calculates that the Tomahawk missiles alone cost about $79.9 million.

  1. Model T leaves nothing to the imagination. Entertainment by bombing. I hold my breath wondering what he will pull off next. I can’t believe the things that he says. The man can’t be sane. Everyday he does something more bizarre than the day before. He praises dictators and I’m wondering if that’s because he wants desperately to emulate them.

    Donald Trump, Showman-in-Chief. He’d take that as a compliment.

    Also, look! It’s Detractor Gadfly in the chorus line!

  3. MOAB Presents…..the yuuuuugest show on Earth! But Conway’s outfit is far too garish to fit in with that line-up.

    Perhaps this is Trump’s way of signaling everyone to quit complaining about his golfing? He needs entertainment one way or another, and if it can’t be golf, it’ll be cruise missiles.

    The MGM lion is a bit of a cliché, but the MGM orangutan makes me miss him already.

    • On second thought, you might be right, Infidel. Kellyanne’s Woody Woodpecker outfit doesn’t fit in. I think Twitler might want Melanoma to put her birthday suit on for the occasion instead. Much more fitting.

      Poor Leo the MGM lion. Turns out that Ivanka’s brother Daryl and her other brother Daryl shot and killed him, because they needed their entertainment. 😥
