Norway.....really?

From Bernie Sanders website:
"Donald Trump wants the United States to take in more people from Norway. The problem is: there are now more people leaving the United States for Norway than the other way around.
And for good reason. Norway is a country which, like other Scandinavian social democracies, has a stronger middle class, a higher life expectancy and a more vibrant democracy than we do. The government there provides universal and virtually free health care, free college tuition, and strong pensions. In other words, it has a governmental system that tries to represent all people, not just billionaires. Last year, Norway soared to the top slot in the World Happiness Report. The U.S. was 14th."

Under the title of:
More Americans migrated to Norway than the other way around in 2016
Emigration from Norway to the U.S. hit its peak in 1882 when almost 29,000 mostly poor Norwegians crossed the Atlantic. In 2016, however, only 1,114 Norwegians moved to the U.S., while 1,603 Americans moved to Norway.

So, so the rest of you don't have to, I looked online, which gotta be the truth, what Norwegians might want to make the move to trumpland. Turns out there is a white supremacist group, Vigrid, which combines nut-ism from the KKK with Norse mythology, about maybe 500 of them, and they just might be willing to live in say, Mississippi, Alabama, etc. They'll be white, you can be sure, bet they'll be GOP and NRA supporters. 
So go gettem' trump. Your people, just waiting across the pond. 

Meanwhile, I'm figuring out finances for the Norse countries......

    We are the shit hole right now.
    I wonder if I could develop a taste for lutefisk...
    We really are the laughing stock of the world right now, and I'm really getting impatient.

  2. Figuring out finances for the Norse countries--good fjord fishing, no doubt, though spring doesn't come any sooner, I think.

  3. The list of countries this moron has offended keeps growing. What's worse is that none would ever take him.

  6. Who knows how great the continent of Africa could be if they had been allowed to keep their own people and resources.

  7. No matter what he says or does, it is forgotten. It is because he is always doing or saying something worse the next day.

  8. Why on Earth would any Norwegians want to come to a shithole country like this?

  10. I wouldn't mind visiting Norway and, you know, if things work out, I'd swipe...wait, which way do you swipe if you like something? And also Tinder has the opposite connotation as Norway, doesn't it? I might not be hearty enough for Norway, but I'd give it a spin. Is there pizza there?
