That was my initial reaction too, but just emotional, as it appeared he applied his patriotism and shall I say American arrogance ...
Here's my disclaimer to those last 2 words ... lol ... Sometimes there are people who spoil it for everyone else, we hear that often enough. There are those Americans, few and far between, who hold this air of superiority over the rest of the world. This isn't exclusive to Americans, btw, but as I was speaking of an American, so it was applied - hope no offence taken!
