Another New Entry To The Insult Trump Competition

In the Fire and Fury book (in which there is much to criticise) there is a quote from Gary Cohn (chief economic adviser to Trump)

“Trump is less a person than a collection of terrible traits.”

Partly, this is one is so bad as it comes from someone who is supposed to be on Trump’s side.

Anyway, in case you missed the previous frontrunners I am reposting them below. Which one do you find more apt?

Indifferent to Truth

“America has had 45 Presidents, but never before have we had one that is completely indifferent to the truth. Donald Trump makes Richard Nixon look like Diogenes”.  – Denis Hayes (Coordinator of the first Earth Day)

In case you missed it, here is Donald Trump claiming, in the present tense, to be good friends with Pavarotti.

As the Independent pointed out however, Pavarotti’s widow and family had other ideas on the matter, had asked him to stop using Pavarotti’s Nessun Dorma at Trump rallies and released this statement…

“As members of his immediate family, we would like to recall that the values of brotherhood and solidarity which Luciano Pavarotti expressed throughout the course of his artistic career are entirely incompatible with the world view offered by the candidate Donald Trump”.

Finally, the Independent also noted something about their relationship…

The apparent tensions between Mr Trump and Mr Pavarotti reportedly started before his death, in 2002, when the New York billionaire hired the opera legend for a concert at one of his Atlantic City casinos. After a lackluster performance from the ageing singer, Mr Trump demanded a refund.

Great friends indeed.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 140 – Robert Somynne

img_6585For the 14oth episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I invited journalist, vlogger and self-confessed foreign policy obsessive Robert Somynne to come on the show.

Obviously there isn’t much going on around the world at the moment so we had to talk about that wee thing that happened over in the USA a couple of weeks back.

I think it involved these people, although there have been furious denials about a couple of things.


Hope you enjoy…
