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.
