I'll Give Him a Bay of Pigs Award

Bizarrely, Trump has been bragging about receiving a Bay of Pigs award from a Cuban exile group in Miami: Apparently, he conflated a 2016 endorsement by a group of Bay of Pigs invasion operatives with an award. Well, I'm going to give him a Bay of Pigs Award. The Bay of Pigs invasion was an ill-conceived attack on a nascent revolutionary country, conducted on the behalf of American corporations and the wealthy. It was poorly executed, with little support, and it failed. The failure set back American foreign interests worldwide for decades, and gave the Russian government a greater foothold in the Western Hemisphere. A failure, on behalf of the rich, which sets back American interests for a generation or two, and increases Russian influence worldwide? What could be a better descriptor for the Trump Maladministration? Give that Pig a Bay of Pigs Award already!

He's a pig, alright, what could be more appropriate?
