No se da a querer. Ni siquiera es agradable. Lo que Donald Trump sí es, es el presidente de EE. UU. más impopular del que se tenga memoria, lo cual tiene muchísima lógica.

Lovable he is not. He is not even nice, for goodness’ sake. What Donald Trump is, is the most unpopular U.S. president in modern history, which coming to think of it, was to be expected.

Despite a series of divisive hearings during which Democrats attacked him for his record on civil rights, the US Senate finally confirmed Alabama senator Jeff Sessions as attorney general. .

The Alabama senator's nomination was among Mr Trump's most controversial. He has been dogged by racism claims and called a "southern racist caricature painful". 

During the confirmation vote, Democrat Elizabeth Warren was silenced after recalling historic allegations of racism against Mr Sessions.

Nazi salutes, swastikas painted in parks? No, no. People don’t like that, Mr. Trump. Several protests sparked in New York in the last days to protest against the use of neo-Nazi symbols among Trump supporters. General disappointment as well when we saw prominent members of the so-called “alt-right”, the white nationalist movement that helped propel Donald Trump to the presidency, gathered in Washington DC last Saturday to plot how the movement can “start influencing policy and culture” under the Trump administration.

"Sé que no todos ustedes son rencorosos, sé que no todos los Repúblicanos son deplorables, sé que no todos los conservadores son aborrecibles, sé que no todos los hombres Blancos son odiosos, pero aquellos de ustedes que apoyaron a Trump se transformaron en facilitadores del odio."

"I know that not all of you are hateful. I know that not every registered Republican is hateful. I know that not every conservative thinker is hateful. I know that not every White person is hateful. However, those of you who supported Trump all became enablers of hate."

Edgar Allan Poe: Una cara redescubierta en una Filadelfia gentrificada.

"Jamás he conocido a nadie tan dispuesto a celebrar una broma como el rey. Parecía vivir tan sólo para las bromas. La manera más segura de ganar sus favores consistía en narrarle un cuento donde abundaran las chuscadas, y narrárselo bien. Ocurría así que sus siete ministros descollaban por su excelencia como bromistas. Todos ellos se parecían al rey por ser corpulentos, robustos y sudorosos, así como bromistas inimitables. Nunca he podido determinar si la gente engorda cuando se dedica a hacer bromas, o si hay algo en la grasa que predispone a las chanzas; pero la verdad es que un bromista flaco resulta una rara avis in terris..."

"I NEVER knew anyone so keenly alive to a joke as the king was. He seemed to live only for joking. To tell a good story of the joke kind, and to tell it well, was the surest road to his favor. Thus it happened that his seven ministers were all noted for their accomplishments as jokers. They all took after the king, too, in being large, corpulent, oily men, as well as inimitable jokers. Whether people grow fat by joking, or whether there is something in fat itself which predisposes to a joke, I have never been quite able to determine; but certain it is that a lean joker is a rara avis in terris..."
