What America can learn from Italy

From Beppe Severgnini:

The United States and others explained to us that they’d never ever elect a man who treated women like sex toys. A 70-year-old who worried more about his hair than about world issues. A politician who confused his private business with affairs of state. A person who treated the truth as optional.

And let’s be honest: Next to Mr. Trump, our former prime minister, Mr. Berlusconi, looks like Winston Churchill. At least he didn’t insult his neighbors, mock foreign powers, snub NATO or plan to build a wall to keep out immigrants. I won’t say we told you so, but we told you so.
