Trump news at 2am

I’m up at 2am for some reason. As I write up the adventurous day to commemorate Heligoland and an unusual gathering of Kelletts that is not a funeral, I catch up on breaking news, which being international, is thankfully not the politicing of Brexit, but rather the ‘larger than life’, rainbow colourful, and sad at the same time, news from Trumpland.

Blind creature that buries head in sand named after Donald Trump

A newly discovered blind and burrowing amphibian is to be officially named Dermophis donaldtrumpi, in recognition of the US president’s climate change denial.

The name was chosen by the boss of EnviroBuild, a sustainable building materials company, who paid $25,000 (£19,800) at an auction for the right. The small legless creature was found in Panama and EnviroBuild’s Aidan Bell said its ability to bury its head in the ground matched Donald Trump’s approach to global warming.
