Golden (missile) showers
Anyone who has read Christopher Hitchin’s little book No-one Left to Lie To, which relates Bill Clinton’s propensity for launching missile strikes whilst fighting sexual allegations at home may feel a certain sense of déjà vu. If Hitchins were alive today he would be having a field day with Trump. At home, Trump is once again being swallowed up by, first of all the allegations he had sex with prostitutes (not least Stormy Daniels who was paid $130,000 to shut up) but also former FBI director James Comey’s rehashing the ‘golden showers’ story. This, as you will no doubt recall dated from the time of the Miss Universe contest held in Moscow in 2013 when Trump, staying at the Ritz Carlton hotel, allegedly had five prostitutes urinate on the bed in the presidential suite (where the hated Obamas had stayed). Back in the 1990s, Clinton’s ‘distraction’ missiles didn’t always find their target. As Wikipedia tells us “[The] justifications for the bombing were disputed by the owners of the plant, the Sudanese government, and other governments. American officials later acknowledged "that the evidence that prompted President Clinton to order the missile strike on the Shifa plant was not as solid as first portrayed. Indeed, officials later said that there was no proof that the plant had been manufacturing or storing nerve gas, as initially suspected by the Americans, or had been linked to Osama bin Laden, who was a resident of Khartoum in the 1980s.”
Thankfully for us our Prime Minister acts only on the basis of the very highest moral and ethical standards and can be trusted in every respect - there's positively no chance that she would want to distract us from anything. Is there.
