The Mondo Trumpe open line

Anybody remember "Mondo Cane," the '60s drive-in hit documentary movie about unsettling  and bizarre happenings around the world? Somehow it leaps to my mind for tonight's open line after news that the new WSJ/NBC poll shows Trump approval ratings up after he played Putin's poodle in Helsinki. At this point in the presidency, only one president has scored a higher approval rating among members of his own party, George W. Bush.

Shocking? Bizarre? It's another screen hit, that's for sure.

"Mondo Cane" had the incongruous, syrupy "More" as its theme song. For "Mondo Trumpe," perhaps the Russian National Anthem would fit. Apparently Trump's Lost 40 would not object.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
