G-20 Leaders Vote Unanimously Not to Give Trump Asylum

Read
============
In an unusual display of unity by an often fractious organization, the leaders of the G-20 nations voted unanimously on Saturday to deny Donald J. Trump’s urgent request for asylum.
Prior to the vote, Trump had been heard asking colleagues ranging from Angela Merkel to Xi Jinping for safe harbor in their countries, sweetening his request with offers of free luxury penthouses in Trump buildings around the globe.
In the most stunning insult to Trump, his closest allies, Vladimir Putin and Mohammed bin Salman, responded to his asylum request by laughing uproariously in his face and high-fiving each other.

2. The most beloved POTUS since Reagan doesn't need asylum thus the humor falls flat

It is true -- lefty just doesn't understand how to do humor any more.

Mere Variations of "orange man bad" don't really count as "funny."

7. That's hilarious.

Maybe the Ecuadorian embassy in London will take him. He loves WikiLeaks. He can help Assange keep his room clean.
