"Six Against One"


Donald Trump is wrapping up his "Fabulous 2017 Boor Tour" at the G7 summit in Sicily.

The Cheeto Benito emerged to praise the G7 chin wag as "tremendously productive." Apparently the rest of the leaders had other thoughts.

Leaders of the G7 group of rich nations have failed to agree a statement on climate change.

Six world leaders reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris accord, the world's first comprehensive deal aimed at reducing greenhouse emissions.

However, the US has refused to recommit to the agreement, saying it will make a decision next week.

Mr Trump, who once dismissed global warming as a "hoax", has previously threatened to pull out of the accord.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the discussion on climate change had been "very unsatisfactory", adding "we have a situation of six against one".

Mr Trump tweeted: "I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!"

His economic adviser, Gary Cohn, said Mr Trump "came here to learn. He came here to get smart. His views are evolving... exactly as they should be."

Uh, no. The G7 isn't a finishing school for rich dolts, and the other leaders aren't there to teach the boorish moron from Queens as he helps himself to the chocolates. If Trump hasn't learned by now that climate change isn't a Chinese hoax, he's not going to learn it. Trump is 70 years old, he isn't going to "get smart," in fact, mentally it's all downhill for him. He's a stupid, vain, bullying oaf and that's just what his supporters wanted when they elected him.

I think you've summed it up pretty succinctly, Cap.

Trust the leader of the free world to state the situation this succinctly.
