Part 7 of an ongoing series.

First up

Trump pays tribute to Luciano Pavarotti.Could someone please tell him he's been dead for ten years and his family are not friends either?

"Through the ages your country has been a beacon of artistic and scientific achievement," Trump told Prime Minister Gentiloni. "That continues today."

"From Venice to Florence to Verdi to Pavarotti – friend of mine," President Trump said. "Great friend of mine," he concluded.

Trump should remember the late Italian operatic tenor. Last summer during the race for the White House the Trump campaign frequently used Pavarotti's rendition of the Puccini's aria "Nessun Dorma" ("None Shall Sleep") without permission. Pavarotti's family sent a letter requesting they stop using his music.

The family's statement was not a generic request, but rather, an attack on Trump's character. It said that "the values of brotherhood and solidarity which Luciano Pavarotti expressed throughout the course of his artistic career are entirely incompatible with the worldview offered by the candidate Donald Trump."

So much for being great friends.
