America, you are not a Chess idiot. You think you’re playing chess with Putin, because that’s what you remember from 30 years back, because that’s the game you’ve won the last time. But you can’t win now anymore, because the Chess world chamiponship is over (though you won). It’s a different game now against a different opponent. America chooses not to notice, however. So, maybe an idiot you are, for not realising what game you’re playing and with whom, not for playing it badly.
