Trump fetes sumo champ in Japan; goes golfing

Trump had been spared the agony of watching the last five bouts of the 15-day tournament in the customary manner – seated cross-legged on a thin cushion. Instead, sumo authorities broke with tradition and provided near-ringside armchairs for the president and the first lady, Melania, and the Japanese prime minister, Shinzō Abe, and his wife, Akie.

The sumo crowd of 11,500 had been instructed to applaud the VIPs’ arrival and warned not to hurl their seat cushions into the ring – a traditional show of appreciation for a particularly exciting bout or when a high-ranking wrestler suffers a shock defeat.

Some in the crowd shook hands with Abe and Trump as they left to join their wives at a robatayaki restaurant for a casual dinner of meat, fish and vegetables cooked over charcoal. Kyodo news agency noted the president’s love of beef but added that, were he to be more adventurous, the restaurant’s menu included such Japanese delicacies as “salmon roe with grated radish and marinated sea cucumber guts”.

Abe and Trump began the first day of a largely policy-free four days with a round of golf ... The leaders practised their swings in front of photographers before teeing off. No scorecard information was provided.

1. WTF is wrong with Abe?



...on a side note, the sumo's bosoms are bigger than the average woman's, yet the pic is SFW?

5. He's so "presidential"



Look at that stupid fuck! He's pouting again because he isn't the center of attention. I hate him so much.

4. Abe got what he wanted

Great progress being made in our Trade Negotiations with Japan. Agriculture and beef heavily in play. Much will wait until after their July elections where I anticipate big numbers!
