Following remarks in which President Trump told the head of NATO that Germany was too dependent on Russia for its natural gas and not spending enough defense, Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the press their own meeting, which seems to have been hastily scheduled, was going great. Said Trump: “We’re having a great meeting. We’re discussing military expenditure, we’re talking about trade. We
The event has concluded.
Angela Merkel was hit by a tomato that was apparently thrown by an opponent to her policy of letting untold numbers of immigrants from terrorist-harboring regions into Germany, and therefore into Europe. Here she is around the moment the tomato landed. Unfortunately, you can’t really see it being thrown. Okay, I’m not saying it was a good thing it was thrown, just, if it gets
Here they are, meeting in Germany. If you look closely at this video, which is a dumb thing to do but fun so I did it, it looks like she started to try to shake his hand a couple of times, thought better of it, and then finally went for it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VykzrUyeAho Remember, last time, President Trump refused to shake her hand.

A famished German Chancellor Angela Merkel was seen staggering about Washington’s restaurant-heavy Georgetown neighborhood last night looking for something to eat following a State Dinner thrown in her honor at the White House. The portly Merkel had been treated to a healthy meal by Michelle Obama, who has finally begun serving the type of lean foods at the White House she recently put on kids’
Well, fair is fair. We’ve called the first lady on all the fattening stuff she eats and ladles out to her guests even as she campaigns for our children to straighten out their diets and rein in their bellies. But at tonight’s State Dinner, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is to be treated to a tasty yet not particularly lard-heavy meal. There’s fish, salad, vegetables and
President Obama today contradicted his senior economic adviser, suggesting more concern about Friday’s lame jobs report than Counsel of Economic Advisers Chairman Austan Goolsbee has been letting on. During a news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Obama revealed that there must be fear in the White House that the report – which said the unemployment rate had lifted from 9 to 9.1 percent while the
