TRUMP CAUSES A REAL bRUhAhA
As we all know, US President Donald Trump is a master at courting controversy.
Just when you think he is beginning to act rationally and statesmanlike, such as normalising relations with North Korea’s rocket man, Kim Wrong-Un, he drops a clanger somewhere else in the world.
I’m not talking about his roundly condemned decision to pull the US out of the Iran Nuclear Deal.
No, it’s his shocking decision to ban Irn-Bru, Scotland’s other national drink, from his golfing resort in Ayrshire, Trump Turnberry, as it might stain its plush carpets.
Especially coming from a man who professes to love Scotland and whose skin is permanently stained the same reddish orange as Irn-Bru.
I wonder if he will also ban the wearing of the popular new Vans shoes, because they look like cans of the famous fizz.
If he does it will prove he really has no sole!
