I saw his fucking twit and couldn't believe the hubris. Every time I think he can't surprise me, there he goes, digging deeper. Act quickly... using water dropped in giant loads from planes onto buildings in the center of Paris. Great plan. It's right up there with raking the forest.

I love they responded. He is so infuriatingly, incredibly, unendingly imbecilic and utterly unaware of that fact.

There are some pics from inside. It's horrible, but not as horrible as I feared, I think?
