Your post leads other more interesting topics. As for the Trump tie, that is obnoxious. It is the offensive, showy behavior of the newly rich, not the class and culture of the old rich.

Criticism of Donald Trump among Democrats who served in senior national-security positions is predictable and rife. But Republicans—who are historically ambitious on foreign policy—are particularly pained by the President’s missteps and misstatements. So are former senior intelligence officials who have avoided publicly criticizing Presidents until now.

“The President has little understanding of the context”—of what’s happening in the world—“and even less interest in hearing the people who want to deliver it,” Michael Hayden, a retired four-star general and former director of both the C.I.A. and the National Security Agency, told me. “He’s impatient, decision-oriented, and prone to action. It’s all about the present tense. When he asks, ‘What the hell’s going on in Iraq?’ people around him have learned not to say, ‘Well, in 632 . . . ’ ” (That was the year when the Prophet Muhammad died, prompting the beginning of the Sunni-Shiite split.*)

"He just doesn’t have an interest in the world,” Hayden said.

The point of Trump is to make fun of the petty nobility that have forgotten who feeds them.

Free Kekistan!

!! Trump reminds the nobility of peasants? I guess, etiquette-wise....
