Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso sparked outrage Tuesday after suggesting that the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, who persecuted millions and sought the extermination of the Jewish people, had the “right motives.”

United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley refused to comment this morning on a report about North Korea, saying, “I can’t talk about anything that’s classified.”

Japan woke up on Friday morning to intense scrutiny of its First Lady’s proficiency in English.
I’ve seen all sorts of snarky articles suggesting that Akie Abe chose to pretend that she couldn’t speak English to avoid Trump. Does that really seen plausible to so many people that an otherwise polished and professional woman would play bitchy little games like she was a member of the Trump family?

The internet is praising her pettiness.
Or Cheeto in Chief assumed she couldn’t speak English and then never gave her the chance to prove otherwise. Which does seem, you know, equally plausible and explination.
