Trump is Erdogan's Bitch

Which follows on the news from yesterday:
Not that there was any doubt, anyway:
And clearly "Friend" doesn't mean what Trump thinks it means:
“I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look,” Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.

It makes me think of the line in The Lion in Winter, when Henry II taunts Eleanor of Aquitaine only with Trump its like he's an anti-democratic draw bridge. He'll put out for any gangster he figures he can get money from. I once told someone I couldn't think of Melania without thinking of her as "The First Prostitute" but I think it's just as true for her husband. Mr. Prostitute.
