Fort Trump - if you want respect from US media piss them off


President Duda's, president of Poland, visit yesterday to the White House was a phenomenal success. Judged at least by the number of snarky comments after he announced that if US builds a permanent military base in Poland it will be called 'Fort Trump.'

That comment set, as Huffigton Post put it, Internet ablaze. After all, how dare they? Nobody should be allowed to be friendly with Trump "The Retrobate". On top of that, calling a military base Fort Trump is the worst thing someone could come up with, ever. 

But the idea sunk in their minds and that was the point. I would say: President Duda went "full Trump" on them.
