I yearn for the days when my blog may once again turn its attention to something other than the disaster that is Donald Trump. I cannot begin to tell you how ashamed I am that this man, the leader of my government, presumes to speak for me. His words and actions embarrass me to the marrow.
The trope “Ugly American” originally described those Americans who traveled overseas and imposed their arrogant expectations of service, privilege and obeisance upon the peoples and places they visited. Trump has managed to bring the Ugly American home, modelling for us how Americans can be ugly to each other. This he has nailed.
