We are now at a point in the life of the Republic where the president loves a foreign country more than he loves the country of which he is president. You can imagine that happening to the fellow in charge of Italy, looking at how nice they have it Switzerland, and you can imagine that of the fellow in Sweden, looking at how things are run next door in Norway, but I would never have imagined this. Not in a million years.
All you can do is shrug and wait for the next horrible news story to emerge. Someone needs to slap the cheap phone out of Trump's hands and try to restore some semblance of order and dignity. These things have clearly disappeared from American public life.
