Donald Trump Threw Starburst Candies at Angela Merkel


Well, no matter where you fall on the ideological spectrum, surely we can all agree that it’s been yet another bonkers week in the world of American politics.


At this point, if you were to list all the ridiculous news that’s come out of the Trump White House in the past month, it would sound like you were singing a parody of “We Didn’t Start the Fire.”


Kids in cages, Manafort jailed, North Korea summit fail, Kim Kardashian, Kim Jong-Un, nobody is having fun!


You get the idea.


There’s so much appalling news making the headlines these days (did we mention the kids in cages?) that it’s easy to forget the lighter side of the Donald.


Remember all that goofy, blowhard sh-t he used to say and do before he got into politics?


Yeah, he’s still doing that stuff, except now it’s overshadowed by the fact that he might literally destroy the world.


And that’s a real tragedy, because when he’s at his most infantile, Trump is every bit as unintentionally funny as Tommy Wiseau or Don Jr.


The latest shenanigans from our wacky president come to us from the G7 summit, where the world’s most influential leaders famously stared Trump down and received a doofy Alfred E. Neuman grin in return.


We expect Trump to behave like a petulant toddler on the world stage, but this time he really upped the ante by literally throwing candy at arguably the most powerful woman in the world.


Yes, according to Newsweek, Trump tossed a couple Starbursts at German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and said — we sh-t you not:


“Here, Angela. Don’t say I never give you anything.”

Donald and Angela


Is this guy wacky or what?


The incident was described in detail by Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer:


“Trump was sitting there with his arms crossed, clearly not liking the fact that they were ganging up on him,” Bremmer said.


“And at that point, he stood up, put his hand in his pocket, his suit jacket pocket, and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the table and said to Merkel, ‘Here, Angela. Don’t say I never give you anything,’”


Wow. If those had been yellow Starbursts, we’d be a week into World War III right now. Fact.


Fortunately, Trump carries only beautiful, gorgeous pink ‘Bursts in his jacket.


Just a terrific flavor, folks, really.
