This is what we Europeans so envy about American culture – that disarmingly childlike candour which we are quite unable to emulate in the higher echelons of public visibility. We, too, have plenty of people with infantile mentalities either seeking or hanging around the fringes of power, but we tend to keep them well hidden in order to protect what little reputation we might still have in the world. America, it seems, has no such reservations. Oh to be so free.

Envying the Land of the Free.
I gather Donald Trump’s long time butler – or senior aide, depending on which part of the report you take as being more truly representative of his erstwhile exalted position – has gone public with his opinion of the current incumbent of His Master’s Aspiration. He says that President Obama should either be ‘taken out’ by the military (one of those delightful phrases which he no doubt picked up from movies about US marines kicking ass) or publicly hanged in front of the White House. Only it shouldn’t be called the White House, apparently; it should be called the White Mosque.
