    Seems like pandering, or it could be completely coincidental.

    Or worse,

    Noting American history, those particular items tend to play into stereotypes more than anything else.

    At least he's not in China:

    meh. rookies.
    Achille Lauro used to give a brand new left shoe to each voter in Naples. If elected, he gave the right one.

    Look, if you're going to stereotype, at least splurge for Popeyes.

    Yep.
    Piece of trivia. The Achille Lauro ship takes the name from him and was the setting of the famous Achille Lauro hijacking in which an American died and caused a huge diplomatic crisis between US and Italy. Right after hijacking the ship, the PLO terrorists helped by Tunisia were able to get on a 747 trying to escape. Before departure from Sigonella (Italy), US delta force was able to intercept the plane. However, since Italy was trying to arrest the terrorists without extraditing them, the Italian police first, and the Italian army later, pointed the guns at the Americans and protected the terrorists. The Italians also threatened to blow up an American plane that illegally landed and parked in front of the 747 (to keep it from moving).

    Sigonella's airport:

    Neat. Thanks for sharing! I tried to look him up but kept coming up on the hijacking.
