Bootlicking Montenegro PM Says 'Grateful' to Trump for Shoving Him

Says he appreciates the opportunity to make Montenegro famous for bootlicking

Montenegrins used to be known for being big on fighting, tribal honor, and not allowing the Ottoman Empire to establish itself in their desolate mountains.

Their PM is working overtime to try and change that. He told Politico he is "grateful" for Trump for shoving him out of his way at the last NATO meeting because this "made Montenegro famous":

“I have to say that I’m very grateful that this incident, so to say, took place. Because this is what made us so famous.”

“This is what made Montenegro so famous.”

I don't think becoming famous for being butt-kissing toadies to the Ottomans of today is a step up in the world -- but then how would a guy who joined NATO after it killed Montenegrin children eighteen years ago ever know that?
