From the New York Times Editorial Page:
The ‘Caddyshack’ President
By ELIZABETH WILLIAMSON FEB. 13, 2017
“Now you’ve got some pretty good pictures — the prime minister of Japan, and the president.”
That’s President Trump, crashing a wedding party at his Mar-a-Lago club on Saturday night, immediately after holding a news conference with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan …
… This is rule by Al Czervik, Rodney Dangerfield’s character in “Caddyshack”: a reckless, clownish boor surrounded by sycophants, determined to blow up all convention.
That sounds pretty anti-Semitic, New York Times!
(Not to mention her being racist toward visiting Asian dignitaries.)
Here’s the Caddyshack scene that the NYT Editorial writer was reminded of by Trump and the Oriental gentleman at the country club.
But isn’t Al Czervik actually the hero of the movie, not bigoted Judge Elihu Smailes? After all, Al gets the last line:
C’mon, Elizabeth, confess: you always doze off when your husband tries to make you watch his favorite moronic golf movie, so you don’t actually know what Caddyshack is about.
Speaking of clownish, I liked this correction:
Correction: February 13, 2017
An earlier version of this article misstated whom Mr. Trump once introduced as “the richest guy in Germany.” It was a golf club member, not a reporter.
Of course, who doesn’t confuse a reporter with the richest guy in Germany?
