World leaders gathered in Paris over the weekend to commemorate Armistice Day. It occurred 100 years ago. French president Macron used the occasion to trash Trump’s idea of nationalism. He called it a “betrayal of patriotism.”

So President Trump went into a snit. He insisted his helicopter couldn’t fly in the rain and skipped a cemetery visit.

Earlier Macron and Angela Merkel embraced patriotism for an E.U. army that would stand up to China and America.

Oh, and a 101 year old French woman mistook Chancellor Merkel for the 60 something wife of the the 40 year old Macron.
