During my daily browse of the news – call it doomscrolling or a natural interest in the world – I came across several reports of White House staffers effectively stealing more or less valuable items from the hallowed halls.
Commenters coloured themselves ‘surprised’, which leaves me with two questions.
1.) How on earth are you still ‘surprised’ about this man?
2.) Could there possibly be a more poignant picture than the mad emperor’s underlings ransacking the temple scrambling to plunder its glorious past?
And past it is.
