One More Tax for the Road

Donald Trump can’t be taxed with lacking audacity or political courage… although the most media-obsessed, highly controversial, and now former president of the United States might be charged with a certain “folly”. Pardoning those who risked their careers for him and mistreating, right to the end, those whose lives or lands meant nothing to him, Donald Trump will have settled his accounts before loudly slamming the door of the White House behind him. France, “the stinky cheese”, as a certain General Sylvester might have said, will therefore be “thanked Trump-style”, by seeing almost all its alcoholic imports to the country landed with “one more tax for the road…”
