Rome (eTruePolitics) – Tuesday’s Vatican News headline: “STUPIDO.”   Not a warm Italian greeting. Why the venom?  Because the current U.S. president apparently thought that Pope  Francis’s promise that  their meeting would be “without walls” meant he would be speaking in Rome’s iconic Colosseum.

“Spartacus is the president’s favorite movie,” explained beleaguered press secretary Sean Spicer, “and when Mr. Trump heard he might have the opportunity to give a speech in such a neat, historical venue, well, the president’s excitement caused him to get over his skis a little bit.

“Funny thing is, Mr. Trump hates cats, and when he heard they run wild in the venue, I think he was kinda relieved.”
