The story about Trump not having anywhere to stay at the G-20 meeting is hilarious to me because given what an unreconstructed racist our dear leader is, it is surprisingly close to the plot of the 1963 Soviet animated propaganda film “Mister Twister,” about a wealthy American capitalist who is outraged that he has to […]
