Oh Noes!

This just in:  Fake newspaper makes up fake news about the world coming to and end because *gasp* Donald Trump isn’t doing things the way he’s supposed to.

How Trump’s Calls to World Leaders Are Upsetting Decades of Diplomacy – NY Times

You need to read the whole thing for the full, hilarious affect of the nonsense that the ostensibly “most important newspaper” in the country is spewing, but here’s a taste:

Dec. 2
Mr. Trump talks to the president of Taiwan, becoming the first
U.S. president or president-elect to do so since 1979.
Why it matters:
The call with President Tsai Ing-wen risks infuriating China, which considers Taiwan a breakaway province governed by Chinese rebels. By honoring the Taiwanese president with a formal call, Mr. Trump’s transition team implicitly suggests that it considers Taiwan an independent state. The U.S. has declined to recognize Taiwan since 1979, when it shifted recognition to the government in Beijing. Taiwan itself has yet to declare formal independence. Mr. Trump tweeted, “The President of Taiwan CALLED ME today to wish me congratulations on winning the Presidency.”
How dare Donald Trump risk offending a country of communist tyrants that have bullied Taiwan for decades??!
Nov. 17
Ivanka Trump joins a meeting with the Japanese prime minister.
Why it matters:
Rather than inviting State Department officials to staff his meeting with Shinzo Abe, Japan’s prime minister, Mr. Trump invited his daughter Ivanka. The meeting alarmed diplomats, who worried that Mr. Trump lacked preparation after a long record of criticizing Japan. It also blurred the line between Mr. Trump’s businesses, which Ms. Trump helps run, and the U.S. government, with which she has no role.
No, diplomats weren’t “alarmed”, the New York Times is “alarmed” because they’re still coming to grips with the fact that regular Americans have good bullshit detectors and consequently are using the NY Times to line birdcages.
The message that the Fake News New York Times sends with this piece is that every other country in the world is helmed by a leader that’s ready to start mashing the nuke button furiously if Donald Trump uses a salad fork to eat a piece of steak.  That’s not how the world works and that’s not the temperament of these people.  Only an idiot would believe the nonsense.
It’s propagandistic tripe like this that’s going to result in the Fake News New York Times being sold off at pennies on the dollar and the staff’s bodies harvested for organs.  My bet is that it happens within five years.  The first part anyway.
