Kim Jong-in is playing with rockets again. Media reports are that Donald Trump was about to dig into an iceberg wedge salad dripping with blue cheese when he got the call.
My first thought, after making sure that North Korea’s latest ballistic missile traveled only 310 miles before crashing into the Sea of Japan (it would take another 2100 miles to reach Guam or Alaska), was whether Trump finished that salad.
It’s something of a presidential test for me
When George W. Bush got the spooky CIA briefing in Texas that, had it been taken more seriously, hinted at planes being used as bombs, he went fishing, tasking Condi Rice with making sense of it (who apparently never got around to it). Only a few weeks later came 9/11.
For me it would be a tough call. I love blue cheese on my salad (with a touch of balsamic vinegar).
