"The Derp is Strong With That One"... Trump Edition

Speaking at the Milken Institute Global Conference on Monday, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross recalled the scene at Mar-a-Lago on April 6, when the summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping was interrupted by the strike on Syria.

“Just as dessert was being served, the president explained to Mr. Xi he had something he wanted to tell him, which was the launching of 59 missiles into Syria,” Ross said. “It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment.”

As the crowd laughed, Ross added: “The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment.”
  1. How much of a sociopath does one have to be to equate a military strike to an after-dinner act?
  2. Did Trump pay for those 59 Tomahawk missiles with points from his credit card (or with S&H Green Stamps)? Because unless he did, that missile strike cost the American taxpayer around $80 million or more, given that the replacement cost of those missiles is about $1.6 million per.

"The thing was, it didn't cost the president anything to have that entertainment."

Is this an admission that Trump has paid no taxes during the procurement period for those missiles?
