The US president, flickering like an alt-right Morten Harket, appears like a lovable savant

A pencil drawing of Donald Trump emerges from the white void. He is fully dressed, in his trademark suit and red crotch cloth (his tie), though, given what the film-makers are going for here, I feel as if he should be wearing nothing but a short belly top, like Winnie-the-Pooh.

2. That sounds right.

Every Irish person I’ve ever met was quite clever.
