After humiliating himself this thoroughly, a self-respecting president would allow Canada to annex the United States and enter self-imposed exile at Mar-a-Lago. Trump will wait until he’s alone with members of Congress to whine about a hand-shake rigging conspiracy and claim Ivanka was admiring Trudeau’s taste in Trump-branded menswear.
