No really. He did. Seriously. This man is INSANE.
Expect organized revolts in the State Dept.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

"“I want to thank him because we're trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I'm concerned I'm very thankful that he let go a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll,” Trump said. “There's no real reason for them to go back. I greatly appreciate the fact that we've been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We're going to save a lot of money.”

We could save millions if 45 would just quit. I'd vote for that payroll reduction.

He was trying to make a joke from the Reagan playbook but he didn't have the brains to pull it off.

No real journalists at the WAPO anymore. Or editors. Just a bunch of dimwits punching buttons on their keyboards. It's truly amazing that they lack the language skills to recognize sarcasm. Thanks Jeff Bozo! FWIW, I delivered this paper back in the 70's when it was a serious newspaper. I built some serious leg muscles riding my bike. It was not the NYT, but like most papers back then, they employed very good investigative journalists. It's just astonishing that anyone would even read or give credence to the crap they publish today.

No, see, if there's organized revolts Trump can call in the National Guard to put down the insurrection. With. Fury. And by ending the revolt violently, payroll will be reduced - and all those annoying "career statists" will be eliminated as well. It's a win-win.

I've watched the entire clip from trump twice. I honestly don't think he meant is humorously or sarcastically.

WaPo has been doing some of the best investigative journalism over the Russian scandal. I cannot think of a better modern paper - not even the NYT. WaPo also needs to sell papers, so they've adopted some standard fare too, but I ignore it.

Yup. And as evidenced by his performance at the Al Smith dinner, he is incapable of telling a joke even when it is scripted.

The US only has between 200-300 American diplomats in Russia. The majority that are being "expelled" are Russian citizens who work in the embassy. Technically they are considered to be diplomatic employees.

I second this - thank God for the WaPo. It's really become the preeminent real news source during the Trump era.

Silly rabbit. After the current State Department had a cow, it turns out Trump was just being ironical:

President Donald Trump was being "sarcastic" when he thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday for expelling hundreds of American diplomats from the country...White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday.

Geez. Where it comes to international relations, people just can't take a joke any more.
