Is he just not getting it that his accomplishments are absolute BS? There goes that peace prize he claimed everybody wants to present him. Perhaps someone will offer a can of split peas or chickpeas since he like those chicks so much.

Anyone with a half brain would have realized that too much talk giving himself credit was not helping, but never a stable genius. North Korea hints at a failed president, so should there be any apologies for The American people?
