From the BBC:
Donald Trump's election risks upsetting EU ties with the US “fundamentally and structurally”, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has warned.
“We will need to teach the president-elect what Europe is and how it works,” Mr Juncker told students in Luxembourg. The Commission chief predicted that two years would be wasted while Mr Trump “tours a world he doesn't know”…
Speaking on Friday, he said: “In general the Americans take no interest in Europe… During the campaign, Mr Trump said Belgium was a village somewhere on our continent… “
Trump and Juncker are both insufferably rude and conceited, but I'll give Juncker the points in this round for elegant sarcasm.
Juncker gets no points for originality though. I distinctly remember a Dave Lee Roth interview in the early 1980s where he claimed Sammy Hagar was dumb (it was not clear why he had a grudge against Hagar). Roth said that he had performed all over the world and learned something about each country he visited; Hagar had also performed all over the world but had learned nothing because he never had a clue where he actually was, or words to that effect. Ironically, a couple of years later, Lee Roth got kicked out of/left Van Halen and was replaced by… Sammy Hagar.
