Trump doesn’t understand most things, and that appears to include how giving thanks on Thanksgiving works.
While the rest of America spent the holiday expressing their gratitude for family, health, plentiful meals, loved ones, and a host of other blessings, the President seems to have confused the spirit of Thanksgiving with the opportunity for a #SelfLoveSunday post.
So great that oil prices are falling (thank you President T). Add that, which is like a big Tax Cut, to our other good Economic news. Inflation down (are you listening Fed)!

Like the world’s most petty ass dad, he thanked himself on behalf of all us ungrateful citizens — who, by the way, have ample reasons to express nothing but contempt for him taking credit for allegedly improved oil prices.
President T may not have the humility to express gratitude to anyone but himself, but he also knows he needs to keep his BFF, Saudi Arabia, happy. “Thank you to Saudi Arabia, but let’s go lower!” he tweeted regarding oil prices on Wednesday, Nov 21.
The Saudi Arabian government, you’ll remember, openly admitted to the horrifying murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. That didn’t stop Trump from refusing to condemn the country and its officials for this abhorrent crime against human rights and decency.
Instead, he recently released a statement reiterating his appreciation for his Saudi Arabian allies in light of this appalling act.
Oil prices getting lower. Great! Like a big Tax Cut for America and the World. Enjoy! $54, was just $82. Thank you to Saudi Arabia, but let’s go lower!

Honestly, we’re just surprised President T didn’t refuse to pardon the turkey this year in order to save a pardon for himself. After all, there’s already talk of Congress looking into his suspicious ties to the Saudis — which is, of course, on top of the ongoing investigation into Russian collusion.
You know, this Thanksgiving, let’s all just be really really grateful that the Democrats took back the House.
