Big Praise: Trump Says Elon 'Does Good at Rockets,' Zuck's 'Done a Hell of a Job'

By Whitney Kimball on at

While attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, a few thoughts tumbled across the barren dunes of the US president’s skull space, out through his mouth hole and out onto Squawk Box on Wednesday. He spoke with the programme’s co-host Joe Kernen about tax cuts, the impeachment inquiry, the US Federal Reserve’s balance sheet, relations with China (“President for life – not bad”). And then he turned to starry visions of wingless rocket ships gliding high, like way up high, in the sky.

“I spoke to him very recently, and he’s also doing the rockets,” he said of his friend Elon, a very good boy. “He likes rockets.”

“And he does good at rockets, too, by the way,” he reflected.

“I never saw where the engines come down with no wings, no anything, and they’re landing,” he marvelled.

“We have to protect our genius,” he told Joe.

If you want to play rockets, you have to get backsies, after all. Speaking of Donald Trump’s most favourite dudes, Mark “has done a hell of a job,” and did you hear he’s running for president?

“I heard he was going to run for president,” he told Kernan. “That wouldn’t be too frightening, I don’t think.”

Mark Zuckerberg has never stated that he wants to run for president, but that’s not up to him because Donald Trump is running against him for president now in the presidential Wrestlemania ring in which he resides, and The Zuck’s staring down an ass-whooping. If Trump wants to dance, Mark is going to dance, bro, but he’ll still do dinner, tee hee.

Kernen asked the president some less interesting questions, too. Now that the US economy is doing so well, people can maybe start thinking about “ancillary issues” like climate change, maybe?

Donald Trump thanked him for the nice compliment about his very good economy.

Jack Dorsey is fucking furious.
