This one came out of nowhere. Quite random, even for him. There’s nothing more Trump than this.

I really do not like these “sources” stories. If a story is based on unnamed sources, it rarely turns out to be factual. This may be just a stunt to get the Israel and Epstein stories from the press. All major news organizations have spent their entire day on this one story.

+ And it’s a non-story.

That’s ridiculous. No one is focusing on this at the expense of anything. This is a sideshow at best. Good for a few cheap jokes, and that’s it. It will be forgotten by tomorrow.

And Trump ain’t smart to calculate, “If I say I want to buy Greenland people won’t focus on the stupid conservative stuff I say and do about Israel, China, immigration, climate change, tax cuts, deregulation, etc.”
They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.
National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.

It happens. We bought Alaska from Russia. We got a bargain too. It only cost us $7 million.

Trump’s so ignorant he probably think it’s called Greenland because it has green golf course grass all over it.

Actually it’s not Trump stupid. After buying Greenland he could turn that listening post into a yuge SAC base. A SAC base will protect us from the giant prehistoric mantises that are going to thaw out of the glaciers, give him an excuse to ban those pesky climate scientists, and after Hillary’s revolution she will have an easy place to attack RUSSIA!!! from.
