POTUS Elect - A tribute to The Trade

The good citizens of the US of A came very close twice before (with George then George W*) but with Donald's election result** they are almost there with their secret desire for their President to be named after one of Her Majesty's Submarines:

* HMS Ambush (P418), launched in 1945, was an Amphion-class submarine,
HMS Ambush (S120), launched in 2011, is an Astute-class submarine.

**
HMS Trump (P333) was a British submarine of the third group of the T class launched on 25 March 1944.



BZ America and our special (submarine) relationship.

The French come close, too, with President Hollande, who is named after the first five RN submarines. But like earlier newspaper squeals about whether the airliner should be Concord or Concorde, they insist on spelling it with an "e".

Going back to the Yanks, they even named presidents after surface ships such as HMS Lincoln and HMS Clinton. (OK, I had to look that last one up on Google...)

An interesting analogy. Trompeur name came to England with the Normans post 1066. The name means trumpeter or maker of trumpets. It was later shortened to Trump. A mouth like a startled anus? Remind you of military buglers mouths being similar?

I think some posts are being a bit unreasonable to POTUS-elect.
Give the man a chance.
After all, how many heads of state are mentioned 18 times in one song?

BZ for spotting. OTOH get a life for such unwarranted attention to trivial detail.

IOW?
On a clear day 'tis visible from the end of my street, on a hangover day I tend to look away.
