I don’t often go political, but in the wake of retroactively creating airports to take over for the US War of Independence this is worth more a mere note:
Britain’s ambassador in the United States has described President Donald Trump and his administration as “inept” and “uniquely dysfunctional”, according to leaked diplomatic memos published by the Mail on Sunday.
Ambassador Kim Darroch reportedly said Trump’s presidency could “crash and burn” and “end in disgrace”, in the cache of secret cables and briefing notes sent back to Britain seen by the newspaper.
“We don’t really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept,” Darroch allegedly wrote in one dispatch.

The ambassador’s memo is unfortunate in that it is accurate.
A leaked cable from the British ambassador to the US, sent home to the
British Foreign and Commonwealth Office has the ambassador calling Trump
“insecure,” “incompetent” and “inept.” In the ambassador’s defense,
it’s completely true. Trump has not yet commented on the news.

And this isn’t even the most egregious thing of which to be aware of with this administration, sadly.
