It's Good to Be the King ('Cuz You Get More Ice Cream Than the Hoi Polloi)

Sometimes, the tiniest details can shed the greatest light on a person's character. This description of a recent meal at the White House, for instance:
Dinner was served. Trump got a different, more colorful salad dressing than theirs. His chicken had extra sauce on the side. With his pie came a double helping of vanilla. With theirs, a single. By [TIME] magazine’s account, there was no explanation. None was needed. He’s the president and you’re not.
Sorry, but I find Trump's imperiousness to be no more endearing than (and every bit as unpalatable as) Obama's.
