The people of England have their own version of our Donald Trump. His name is Boris Johnson and he is the mayor of London. Mr. Johnson is very upset because the bust of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill was removed from the White House and sent back to England. I suspect that few Americans under the age of 50 have the slightest idea as to who is Winston Churchill, let alone give a damn if his bust is in or out of the White House, but for Boris this is a critical issue of our times.
According to Boris, “Some said it was aa snub of Britain.Some said it was a symbol of the part Kenyan President’s ancestral dislike of the British empire of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender.”
For the record, Winston Churchill played an important role in aiding America to win World War II. I doubt if Obama knows much about this past nor does he give a damn about it.
