Lies and slippery slopes

When full-fat, artery clogging lying comes across as the virtuous finger raised against the entitled establishment, it hoodwinks those who are looking for refuge in authority.

Tripping over vintage Trump

In his first press conference since winning the US presidential election, Trump was like the bull being goaded in the ring that tossed aside the matadors’ best efforts. His most savvy appointees will soon learn how to dodge a goring by waving their capes of self-interest with varying degrees of success, depending on what corrida they think is worth winning.
