When someone welcomes you to stay with them, the polite thing to do is say "Thank you." We don't have to tell you this, right? Well, someone should apparently let the Commander in Chief know. He seems to have missed that particular lesson in manners. On Wednesday, November 29, Trump gave a speech about GOP tax bills when he decided to bring up the people of Asia who had generously hosted him on his recent tour. He didn't have many nice things to say about them, however. At one point, he even appeared to mock them.
Last month, Donald Trump went on a whirlwind tour of several Asian countries. You might be thinking that he had a wonderful time on said tour. After all, he clearly loves saying the word "China."
Wow. Who knew a two-syllable word could be pronounced with such variety?
Anyway, despite the man’s obvious love for the name of an Asian country, Trump’s trip was plagued by several gaffes.
First, there was the fish food incident.
It turns out that the Japanese Prime Minister did the exact same thing, but as we say in the biz, it was still bad optics for Trump.
(We have to wonder: Does he even know what good optics look like?)
Then there was this complete fumble of a handshake:
Then there was the whole UCLA basketball players thing.
While Trump was in China, he apparently pulled some strings so that some UCLA students who had been caught shoplifting would be released.
Then, when he didn’t feel as though he’d been thanked enough by said players, he whined about how ungrateful they were being.
When he got back to the States, he had some trouble with a water bottle while talking to the press about the trip:
OK, OK, so this one actually happened on U.S. soil and not in Asia, but it’s just too good not to include here. He holds it like a sippy cup!
Anyway, On Wednesday, November 29, Trump actually appeared to mock the Asian people who had so graciously hosted him while he was on his trip…
