Charlie and John go from the collective delirium in which Argentina went after their World Cup victory to the permanent delirium that the political world of the United States has been living since Donald Trump was elected president in 2016. Charlie saw the final in the pagan land of Portland, Oregon, where they hardly knew what soccer was, and John saw it in Barcelona, where he taught Messi to play.
But the good fortune of being born in France has given Charlie a good understanding of what the world’s greatest mass phenomenon is, and so he was kind enough to admit that, despite lamenting the French defeat, there was some justice in his Messi. The one who took the last one was to win the trophy.
The madness spreading in Argentina serves as a bridge to comment on the new depths of insanity to which Trump has sunk, now dedicated to selling images of himself dressed as a superhero, astronaut and cowboy . And it happened right after a House of Representatives committee in Washington recommended to the Justice Department that he be investigated for a series of crimes against the Constitution, which he had allegedly sworn to defend as president.
There is much angst between Charlie and John when it comes to analyzing the reasons that led millions of Americans to vote for Trump, but it all ends in harmony and love when they both wish each other a Christmas present. Best wishes to. Or, as John says now, Messy Christmas.
