President Trump has begun a 13-day trip through Asia, starting in Japan. His meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe seems to have gone very well.
Mr. Abe presented Mr. Trump with hats saying, “Donald and Shinzo…Make Alliance Even Greater.”
But of course, in the eyes of the liberal media, the president must never be allowed a success of any kind.
So the press invented a “gaffe” for Mr. Trump.
At one point during his visit, Messrs. Trump and Abe both fed koi, i.e., Japanese carp.
But reporters ridiculed the president for ultimately dumping the remainder of his box of food into a pond.
CNN, in particular, went nuts on this theme.
It is hard to imagine anything more trivial, but for the press, no opportunity to smear President Trump can be foregone. This is via Twitchy.
