You have become extremely famous all over the world

I think Trump is getting stupider every day – noticeably stupider, strikingly stupider.

He called up the governor of Guam to tell him the North Korea thing is just wonderful for him and for Guam, because it’s making them famous. They’re celebrities! Tourism will soar!

You think I’m exaggerating for sarcastic effect as usual. I wish I were.

The threat by North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, to create “an enveloping fire” around the tiny United States territory in the Western Pacific will boost Guam tourism “tenfold,” Mr. Trump is heard saying in the recorded conversation with Gov. Eddie Calvo.

The recording was put on the Republican governor’s Facebook page and other social media accounts.

Mr. Trump said: “I have to tell you, you have become extremely famous all over the world. They are talking about Guam; and they’re talking about you.” And when it comes to tourism, he added, “I can say this: “You’re going to go up, like, tenfold with the expenditure of no money.”

And it’s all thanks to Trump! He is so awesome!

Mr. Trump had threatened to rain “fire and fury” on North Korea for any provocation. Alluding to Mr. Kim, he told the governor, “You notice he hasn’t spoken recently. He doesn’t talk so much anymore. We’ll see how it all works out.”

He added, lowering his voice: “This is between you and I. But you don’t talk like they talk. You can’t do that. You can’t do that with people like us.”

Ok first the small item – it’s between you and ME, bozo.

Next – it’s between you and him? Because you lowered your voice? I think you’ll find that’s not quite right.

And finally – that’s how a street corner tough thinks and talks. That’s how a prickly impulsive self-absorbed neighborhood bully thinks and talks. Trump is supposed to be on a larger stage now. He should have moved beyond narcissistic injury by now, to think about the safety and welfare of seven billion people and however many trillions of animals and the planet.

But he hasn’t. His mind is shrinking rather than expanding. He’s getting more narcissistic and idiotic every day, not less.

I mean seriously. He’s recklessly gambling with the lives of billions of people, and he’s babbling about making a few of them famous? How divorced from reality do you have to be to say a thing like that?

While Guam is generally calm about the escalating threats of a missile attack, some were not thrilled by the tone of conversation between the two men.

“Listening to that call left me feeling disgusted,” said Andrea Nicole Grajek, a local artist from Dededo village. “I was so shocked I was actually crying. They’re leaders discussing a rise in fame and tourism, while the world is watching our island carefully to see if we’ll still be here tomorrow.”

But the lunatics think it’s all going swimmingly.

Mr. Calvo, however, told Mr. Trump that he had “never felt more safe or so confident than with you at the helm. So, with all the criticism going on over there from a guy who is being targeted, we need a president like you. So I’m just so thankful. I’m glad you’re holding the helm.”

Mr. Trump responded, “We’re going to do a great job. You don’t have to worry about a thing. They should have had me eight years ago, somebody with my thought process.” He added, “And frankly, you could’ve said that for the last three presidents.”
