RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - “Yes! Weekend!” was the caption of a cartoon last Saturday, showing a stylized Air Force One on the beach and a pair of brown legs following a torso mostly into the foamy brine. Is this funny?
Maybe, but it shows the sort of pressure the President of the United States (POTUS) is under when he makes decisions that are, to put it mildly, unusual.
Consider the following decisions: to come to Brazil before its President had paid a visit to the US; to bring both his wife and his young children along . . .
