Watching the Australian tennis final at 3:00 AM is easy if Roger Federer is playing. Only, he doesn't play. This is a fast speed chess game, using a tennis racket and a ball. He seldom fist pumps, never cry's to his coaching box for help, certainly doesn't belittle his opponent, remains a gentleman, cerebral, doesn't need a fake news channel to support his game, and the guy is easy on the eye.
Then there's the man from Queens. He would be better suited as a circus barker or a Vegas doorman than a president of the United States. He's the empty hat who has to be scripted, can't spell, doesn't read books, sticks to simple sentences or enters into the never-ending fire hose of words, interspersed with the greatest, trust me, believe me, no obstruction of justice, no collusion, (spelled collision) has trouble with the English language, and started Trump University.
Roger Federer is eloquent in Swiss-German, English, French, some Swedish and Italian. Federer would never make a derogatory comment about a woman. The other guy appears to revel in verbal abuse of both male and female opponents: Crooked Hillary, Pocahontas, Chuck and Nancy, Crazy Sanders, Little Marco, Low Energy. Instead of congratulating his opponents for their loss, he continues to berate them.
In tennis, abusive language is considered underhanded, improper, foul, ungentlemanly, dishonorable. It would be considered bad sportsmanlike conduct and a player would be disqualified from the match.
Trump sits in the White House.
After winning the Australian Open, and speaking positively about his opponent, Roger Federer was given a standing ovation when presented with the trophy. Tears streamed down his face in gratitude and modesty.
Trump was booed and hissed during his speech in Davos, Switzerland. He refers to his wife as his trophy. He further demeans her by having a year-long affair with another woman.
But he loves Putin. Tight as a drum with him. Why the love? Zero interest rate on loans? Flipping votes on election night? Or is there film of the Moscow Ritz Carlton?
Federer still wins game, set, match, and with class.
