      So, looks like the Islamification of Turkey is set to continue. Only a matter of time before women are compelled to wear the burkha.

        western women used to have to wear a bra…apparently.

  1. 20% tariffs on cars from Europe is a huge whack of tax.

      Hmmm, that’s a questionable characterisation of Obama’s decision.

      Obama decided to retaliate after the election to avoid appearing as though the White House was putting its thumb on the scale in favour of Hillary Clinton.

      So you could as easily say good intentions, not very well executed.

    Is this racist?

      Nah I wouldn’t call that racist. Some people will no doubt, but it’s more a play on Obama’s & Trudeau’s perceived personalities & style than on their skin colour. Pretty low grade humour, not a belly laffer.

        I rated it a chuckle. But certainly not a belly laugh.
