The Germans know something about having a cataclysmicly bad leader. So it’s probably no surprise that German newspaper der Spiegel took advantage of President Trump’s foreign tour to rip him a new one.
Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn’t read. He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.
And that was just the lead graph! Opinion writer Klaus Brinkbäumer goes on:
He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly. He is a danger to the world.
This comes on the heals of Trump getting getting dissed by French President Emmanuel Macron in a tense battle of handshakes and then a public swerve to German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Macron himself shared on twitter!

When you’re faced with an orange-haired man-child who shakes people’s hands with such force their knuckles start to turn white, what’s the best way to greet them?
Not greeting them at all, of course.
France’s newly elected young President Emmanuel Macron walked up the red carpet towards a group of Nato leaders yesterday and visibly swerved to avoid Donald Trump at the last second.
It’s a spectacularly not-so-subtle power play.
Unfortunately for us, Trump is also spectacularly embarassing for us as a country.
