So there were a few people who were shocked, shocked I tell you, that el Presidente Trumpo could be so dumb, so blind, so tone deaf, as to call and congratulate President Erdogan of Turkey after he gained new dictatorial powers in a shady election. They actually believed the news to be fake, because Trump would never have done that, right?!?!?
Oh man, it gets much worse.
Trump is going to be hosting totalitarian Erdogan at the White House to sup upon the gourmet foods at dinner!!
Donald Trump will host Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on May 16-17 at the White House, in the first meeting between the two leaders.
Mr Trump was recently the only Western leader to congratulate Mr Erdogan on his victory in the country’s referendum that broadened his powers.
EVEN THAT DIDN’T TIP HIM OFF?!
The only other leaders who made official calls to Mr Erdogan were those of Qatar, Djibouti, Guinea and the Palestinian militant movement Hamas.
HAMAS?! The terrorist organization HAMAS?!??
The New York Times reported that Mr Erdogan’s slim margin of victory would “cement his autocratic rule over the country.”
An independent monitor of the referendum vote, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), said in a report that “fundamental freedoms essential to a genuinely democratic process were curtailed”.
Now, some think that he did this because he has a yuge business interest in Turkey – Trump Towers Istanbul.
Thank you Prime Minister Erdogan for joining us yesterday to celebrate the launch of #TrumpTowers Istanbul!

BUT, as much as I think Trump is one shady character, I actually think he just doesn’t know what the heck he’s doing. Pure incompetence is inviting a Muslim dictator to the White House. I bet even Hamas is confused right now.
OH, and don’t forget – after the public furor, they DENIED congratulating him!! LOL!!
