For $3 Billion worth of more MIC junk, any and all Presidents have done the same in the past, holding hands is just another cringeworthy addition that successfully works on the gullible especially when it is mutually beneficial.There is one part i wanted to deal with separately. John Oliver called this a 'fake visit'. Why ?
There is no such thing. Getting Trump to actually sit in a plane that took thirty hours to & back for just 36h stay is no fake visit.
I still cannot comprehend a western leader that agreed to do a lap of honour, hand in hand with another leader.
It works its charm by wooing the ignorant and misinformed Indian Americans greased up for the upcoming election as well as the uneducated and illiterate population locally who believe a state visit is some sort of great achievement.
What we need are Apache garbage trucks and Rafale ambulances instead of flushing taxpayer money constantly building an arsenal against an already inferior military.
