Trump, Putin and Shakespeare’s Henry V

Yesterday Putin wickedly gave Trump a World Cup soccer ball as a gift. This, of course, echoes the scene in Shakespeare’s play Henry V when the young king is insultingly sends tennis balls in response to a serious matter.

Yesterday, Putin suggested, similarly, that Trump is a superficial fool-dolt who likewise deserved nothing more than a ball to play with and amuse himself. Unlike Henry, though, Trump is, indeed, that shallow, stupid, and frivolous and Putin has figured that out. Trump was significantly ‘zapped’; a malicious calculated gotcha on Putin’s part for sure, showing his total lack of fundamental respect for the president.
