It's strange that the author didn't show Angela Merkel in the cartoon. Trunp's harshest words on the NATO meeting were against Germany, "a captive of Russia".

The funniest guy in the cartoon is Validimir. Look at his facial expression, at his gesture. He's entertained by the scene.

One might suppose that Frau Merkel is not in the picture because she's offstage contemplating some way to suppress or counteract the buffoon's antics.

It is strange, but maybe May was more important after Thursday. The cartoon posted was in Friday's paper.

Here's another about NATO and Russia.

And an older one from the Toronto Star when Trump was going on about Canadians smuggling shoes across into Canada, not understanding that tariffs are different from duties. Shoes ARE about the only thing we found that were cheaper in the US but not worth it now with the exchange rate on the dollar. I'm sure some folks do cheat and brought in more than their 48 hour or seven day away allowance, but if you bought American, which we did, there were no duties under NAFTA for shoes. That may change.

The past is to be respected/acknowledged, not worshipped. It is in our future we will find our greatness. Pierre Trudeau
