Silvio Berlusconi

His personal doctor said that the former premier, 83, is “asymptomatic,” Italian media reported.
It could pave the way for the 81-year-old to run for prime minister in the next national election.
The trial will begin in the Tuscan city of Siena in February, the source said.

I believe America is better than Trump. That the general electorate will ultimately demand more than an angry, vulgar, crass, impulsive, intolerant, intellectually-bankrupt peddler of negativity and doom as leader of the free world and commander-in-chief of the greatest military on the planet. That's my new prediction. God help us if I'm wrong.
The Clinton campaign tried Dangerous Donald, which fell flat, and has been floating the moniker Poor Donald. Both choices hold none of the power of Trump's insults. Dangerous evokes a titillating thrill - Carlos Danger before being unmasked - and Poor Donald rings of elitist condescension.
The New York billionaire is the incarnation of a recurring theme in both American and world history. We live in a time that is characterized chiefly by uncertainty, and in this growing uncertainty Trump is the perfect spokesperson for expressing the ideas of the "old Europe" right.
