Tra selfie o saluti, il cretino è sempre lì

 Although this photo is from an Italian newspaper and took place in Italy, certainly this is an ugly American and not an Italian!

Google translate:

Between selfie or greetings, the idiot is always there

(I would have translated "cretino" as the crazy man, but who am I to judge google or this man? But yes, he is an idiot!)

Actually, 'Cretin' has an English usage that fits this bill.

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

It could be brainless or not thinking and also idiot. My mom always called me a cretino, so I thought it meant crazy in the pejorative sense and there idioto which means idiot and stupido which means stupid and yes my mom called me those things to.

That's OK as long as the other kids didn't think it was your real name...

"Hey! Cretino! Your Mama is calling for you!"

The real name for "selfie" is "narcissistie" but it's too long for most people to spell...

I remember that Obama was fond of selfies, thanks for the reminder.

Googling "Trump Selfie" returns thousands and thousands of narcissisties.

He does everything, by his own admission, bigger and better, dontcha know...?

For the reminder, you are welcome.

THE AMERICAN THINKER

"This media sources is moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. It may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports, and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: American Thinker is a conservative daily online magazine dealing with American politics, foreign policy, national security, Israel, economics, diplomacy, culture and military strategy. The American Thinker demonstrates a right bias through wording and story selection. They have also failed a few fact checks such as this one. (7/18/2016) Updated (6/26/2017)

AND

"American Thinker (affectionately nicknamed "American Stinker" by its fans) is an online wingnut publication that's more or less the poor man's WND or Newsmax. They've published articles by such conservative luminaries as Noel Sheppard (NewsBusters) and Pamela Geller and such climate "experts" as S. Fred Singer and Christopher Monckton, as well as an interview with (and hagiography of) white nationalist Jared Taylor.[2]

The magazine, of course, is chock-full of right-wing conspiracy theories, woo, and pseudoscience. On the conspiracy side, they promote birtherism, "creeping sharia," red-baiting, and still occasionally prattle on about Vince Foster. On the science side, they concentrate on creationism and global warming denialism."

Pamela Geller is a regular contributor to the American Thinker. About Geller has been written: "Pundits from across the political spectrum harshly criticized Geller and other conference organizers for being deliberately inflammatory. “When you embolden people, when you empower people, the haters, you’re going to get violence,” Catholic League President Bill Donohue said after the event. “And so why would anybody who’s morally responsible want to intentionally incite other people?” Fox Newshost Greta Van Susteren added: “Yes, of course, there is a First Amendment right and of course it’s very important. But the exercise of that right includes using good judgement.”AnotherFox pundit, Geraldo Rivera, opined about Geller: “She most reminds me of the Aryan Nation, KKK, racists.”
