USA: Ketchup On The White House Wall, Blood On The Steps Of The Capitol – Opinion

Trump couldn’t sit down to eat his lunch without committing a crime

Lucian Truscott Newsletter

We always knew he was a bully and a baby, but testimony today from Cassidy Hutchinson, former aide to Mark Meadows, about Trump’s plate-throwing tantrums in the Oval Office dining room was what they call news.  Hutchinson was testifying about the day in early December of 2020 that the AP news hit the wires with its interview of Attorney General William Barr, who went blatantly on the record that the Department of Justice had investigated dozens of charges of election fraud without finding any evidence sufficient to overturn the results of the election.

Hutchinson testified that she heard “noise” from the opposite end of the hall near the Oval Office.  When she walked down the hall, she found a White House valet in the dining room changing the tablecloth.  He pointed at the wall next to the fireplace mantle and television screen.  “I first noticed there was ketchup dripping down the wall and there was a shattered porcelain plate on the floor,” she said. “The valet had articulated that the president was extremely angry at the Attorney General’s AP interview and had thrown his lunch against the wall.”          Continue reading

USA: Birthday greetings from one July Fourth-er to another: May you find peace and happiness – By Mohamed Hamaludin

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

Probably 60 years ago, after graduating from high school in my native Guyana and became a teacher, I considered emigrating. I do not recall why I set my sights on the United States of America. It was probably because of what I had seen in movies. I started the process by trying to go to a college, probably Rutgers in New Jersey because, if I remember right, the name looked impressive. If that sounds naïve, the reason I gave for applying may seem even more laughable. I was born on the Fourth of July, as was the United States, and I mentioned that coincidence in my application.

I never followed up, though, probably because I may not have been serious and, anyhow, there was no pressing need for me to emigrate. Perhaps it was because, in those days, the focus was more on Britain, Guyana’s colonial power until 1966. The country of Stratford-upon-Avon seemed to be a better place, no doubt because of Guyana’s British-oriented education system, than the American West populated by cowboys and “Indians.” Indeed, it was more appealing to me than Guyana’s hinterland with its majestic Kaieteur Fall, which, at 741 feet, has the sheerest drop of all such natural wonders – and which I still have not visited.        Continue reading
