    Nothing. It was a false alarm. Though given the expression on one of the other character's face soon after, him having a gun may have been the surprise. If it's continued today, I'll let you know. Off to Paris soon.

    The main gossip side story at the World Cup this week was around Meg Rapinoe who was videoed a few weeks back saying, "I'm not going to the fecking White House," if they win. Citing misogyny, racism and homophobia as starting points.

    Trump naturally put aside time in his busy working day to tweet


    Rapinoe has subsequently removed the word fecking from the sentence - because her mother doesn't like the swearing.

    Sadly not me, though some of them aren't that much older than me, so I must have just missed out - I think the youngest one who traveled was 16 :D

    My reaction would have been the same as hers to be fair.

    Yep, I was expecting to support France tonight, but her comments may have got me on the USA side, or at least neutral again.

    It's like a dagger in the heart.
