The Fins are buying American fighter jets!!!

Actually, no they are not.  No details Donny announced the big purchase by Finland of Boeing built warplanes. The only problem is the Finnish military has not made a decision from the five planes on their acceptable list and three of them are not made in America.  An added plus for those of us who enjoy watching the daily incompetence by the POTUS?  The double take by the Finnish president. If nothing else, circus Trump is entertaining....embarrassing, but entertaining.  The video of Trump mixing up reporters is pretty funny too. 

 

 

Finnish president Sauli Niinisto appeared startled and immediately looked in Trump’s direction upon hearing the comments. Niinisto later pushed back against the comments in a tweet Monday that translates to “the news of the purchase of the F-18 fighter planes is a duck.” He used a Finnish word “ankka” commonly used to describe a falsehood, similar to “canard” in English, or maybe fake news in the U.S. vernacular.

“The cultural interpretation: a ‘news duck’ in Finnish means the news is totally not true,” said Sanna Kangasharju, a press counselor with the Finnish Embassy in Washington.
