Default "American Idiot" song on chart for Trump's visit

https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/10/enter...rnd/index.html

You Brits have a great sense of humor.

"American Idiot" by Green Day

Don't wanna be an American idiot
Don't want a nation under the new media
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind-**** America
Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue
Well maybe I'm the faggot America
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda
Now everybody do the propaganda
And sing along to the age of paranoia
Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue
Don't wanna…

Donald Tusk (President of the EU if you didn't know) for the first time ever said something today that I agree with. He said, "Appreciate your allies, Mr Trump; you don't have that many".

Years ago when Bill Clinton visited the UK, I actually got off my arse and went into Birmingham to see if I could catch a glimpse of him, just because I rather liked him. I didn't see him, as it happened. As far as Trump goes, I wouldn't cross the road to see him even if he was giving out free tickets, travel, free booze and accommodation included for the World Cup Final.

Yes, I read that story earlier. It has rather a Kafkan ring to it, describing the young children in the courtroom in giant chairs. Translators are available for clients without English skills -- but who can translate for a pre-language toddler?
I hope something good comes from this chaos, but I don't know... Even at Ellis Island, they kept families together!

This morning's developments just confirm to me that the title "American Idiot" is nothing but a complete fit to President 45. First of all, he is wrong on the facts (surprise!) in pretty much everything he said about Germany being "captive of Russia" and secondly, he told a military alliance (NATO) to look into the trade practices of a member country. The only way this can be explained is if he does not know the difference between the EU and NATO, something I wouldn't past him at all, actually.

"American Idiot", all the way. I hope it gets to number one. On another thought, maybe they should change the lyrics to "Russian Puppet".
