GROUP Of 7 (MORE OR LESS)
Trump went up to Canada (arriving rather late)
Told them that G7 really ought to be G8.
Yet with Merkle, Macron, and Trudeau his bonds are very few.
So forget about G7, meet with Putin in G2.
Truth in Satire had a more complicated suggestion:”Re-admit Russia, dump Italy, add China, swap Japan for Norway.”
Stephen Colbert doubted there was ever a chance for success: “Donald Trump imposed steel and aluminum tariffs on all the other six countries in the G7, and now he’s going tm have a summit with them. That’s like saying ”Hey, Frank Bill, Tom, Tony, George, I’m sleeping with all your wives, you still up for the fishing trip this weekend?”
And the New Yorker’s Andy Borowitz had Macron and Trudeau saying they were ”tremendously relieved” Trump had left the meeting early for they’d been planning not to tell him the location of the G7 after party. “Now that Trump is out of here, we’ll really have something to celebrate.”
` All in all it’s yet another illustration of the point made in a cartoon by Lalo Alcaraz showing a cartoonist holding up a sign saying: “Please help SATIRIST. I cannot top our reality any more.”
