The world according to Donald Trump (and where to watch the US elections in London)
According to the Bulgarian artist Yanko Tsvetkov, Donald Trump is an example of “a modern Icarus, Trump thinks he’s a butterfly that can cause a hurricane. The problem is he can’t fly”.
In the latest map in his Atlas of Prejudice, Tsvetkov replaces country names with “the world according to Donald Trump”. Iceland is simply a place that supplies “cocktail ice”, South America is a “Miss Universe Farm” and Mexico is just full of “rapists”.
A detailed commentary on Trump follows and at the end, Tsvetkov concludes:
“If you’re a bit more sentimental and forgiving, you can picture him as that racist uncle you still care about because deep in his heart he’s a ‘good person’. Being an idiot excuses you from idiotic actions. Being a clever person acting like an idiot, doesn’t. Whatever the case, Trump is not someone who should spend even a single night at the White House. Not even if he had too much wine after Hillary Clinton’s inauguration party”.
Elsewhere today, at Urbanologie, Hugo Campbell-Davys suggests six places where those in London with an interest in watching the election pan out on 8th November can enjoy the night. Amongst his suggestions of all-night parties are the K Bar at The Kensington Hotel in South Kensington and The Stafford Hotel in St James’s.
