Serbian nationalist leader Vojislav Seselj, who is wanted for war crimes by an international tribunal in the Hague, called on Serbs in the U.S. to support business magnate Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.Seselj, once an ally of the late Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic during the wars that split apart the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, was temporarily released from detention in the Netherlands in 2014 after an inconclusive 11-year trial. He has ignored an order by the tribunal in March for him to return to custody. He appealed to the hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens who claim Serb ethnicity via Twitter to support the Republican frontrunner.
“I invite brothers who live in the U.S. to strongly support Republican candidate Donald Trump in forthcoming presidential election,” Seselj said in a Jan. 3 tweet. He didn’t elaborate.
Holy ethnic cleansing, Batman.
In other Insult Comedian news, 560,000 people have signed a petition urging parliament to bar Trump from bloviating in Britain:
MPs are to debate calls for the US presidential candidate Donald Trump to be banned from the UK following his controversial comments about Muslims, after more than half a million people signed a petition.
The government signalled last month that it would not refuse Trump entry after he was widely criticised for saying that Muslims should be banned from entering the US.
However, the call for the sanction to be imposed on the businessman will now at least have a hearing in parliament after the House of Commons petitions committee announced on Tuesday that it was scheduling a session in Westminster Hall on 18 January.
…withdraw investment worth more than £200m in a South Ayrshire resort and £500m in his golf course in Aberdeen after it emerged that MPs will debate banning him from entering the UK over his pledge to ban Muslims from entering the US.
Suzanne Evans, whose online petition triggered the Commons debate on 18 January, dismissed Trump’s move as “sheer hypocrisy”. She said: “Here in Aberdeen, we have seen these wildly inflated figures bandied about for years, and he never invests as much as he claims.
That’s the Insult Comedian in a nutshell. He’s the exact opposite of his fellow New York rich kid Teddy Roosevelt: he speaks loudly and carries an eenie weenie stick.
Finally, the National Memo’s Joe Conason describes Trump’s crawfishing away from the Clintons after decades of sucking up:
Like so much of Trump’s loud talk, his disparaging remarks about Bill and Hillary Clinton have scant credibility, at least to anyone who knows anything about him. Whatever he claims to think of them now, he has spent years sucking up to the Clintons in the most abject way. His one-sided courtship of the former First Family goes well beyond Trump’s ridiculous insistence that they attend his wedding to his third wife in Florida.
Although he now claims to deplore Bill Clinton’s misbehavior, Trump awarded the former president a free membership at his Trump National Golf Club, just a few miles from the Clinton home in Westchester County. Still a member to this day, Clinton has long enjoyed all kinds of special privileges at the club, where he maintains a locker in a special VIP section near those of former Yankees manager Joe Torre and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.
That’s right, ladies and germs, your favorite populist rabble-rouser is just another starfucker. Anyone who has ever watched the dread Celebrity Apprentice knows that. Do we really want to elect a President who sucked up to the likes of Gary Busey and Meatloaf?
I haven’t suggested a theme song for the Trump campaign yet. I think Starfucker would be a good one for a misogynistic Insult Comedian. Plus, Mick Jagger had a thing for Mrs. Thatcher so he might not veto it:
