Missing Tree Monday

1a

Trump, Macron plant a tree at the White House to begin state visit.

Pictures taken by a Reuters photographer appeared to show that a tree planted at the White House this week by Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron has vanished.

The tree, an oak sapling from the site of a pivotal first world war battle involving the US marines, was a gift presented by the French president as part of his state visit to Washington.

The tree came from Belleau Wood, north-east of Paris, where 1,811 Americans died in a ferocious battle in June 1918.

In a tweet, Macron said: “100 years ago, American soldiers fought in France, in Belleau to defend our freedom. This oak tree (my gift to [Donald Trump]) will be a reminder at the White House of these ties that bind us.”

Macron and Trump planted it on Monday, using golden shovels and with wives Brigitte Macron and Melania Trump looking on.

    I saw an article earlier this morning about the missing tree. Eeek, it was YOUR article. When I boot up my computer, open my Google News page I skim down the headlines. That’s where I saw the Guardian article.

    Diane leaving tomorrow for home. Today we’re meeting Jill and Brian for Margaritas. Diane is still in bed at 10:41, lunch is at 1:00. I told her to GET UP!

    I’m on my second cup of coffee.

    I caught that Michelle Wolf thing at the Correspondents Dinner. I’ve never watched that in my life, but Diane and I were sitting in the LR, I turned the TV on and left it on low on MSNBC. It was the dinner, so I turned the TV up, scanned the crowd for people I would recognize, then Michelle Wolf closed the show.

    I didn’t like a lot of the things she said. I especially didn’t like the things she said about Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway and they’re two women I can’t stand. However, she wasn’t all bad. Trump is outraged and that’s laughable. He’s the meanest guy in the country. There’s hardly anyone or anything he hasn’t put down or called names. James Comey is a “slime ball.” Meryl Streep is an overrated actress. I like soldiers who didn’t get captured better. That’s the tame part of the list of shit that comes out of THAT man’s mouth.

    Tree mystery solved! It was ceremoniously planted then pulled up and put in quarantine just in case any French bugs (Illegal aliens) traveled along with it.

      Typical trumpian behavior, close the barn door after the horses got out, in this case the bugs flew off and infesting all the other trees by now.

    I heard it’s supposed to be pretty warm tomorrow. When we got back from Margaritas, we sat outside on the back deck for several house, no coats, a beautiful day.
