#1 I bet he did. Nobody is keen to talk to him. So receptions come cheap.

#2 Must be annoying to be an ambassador of a country with a dodgy past seeing them commit suicide yet again.

#3 Nobody is keen to talk to him

Interesting Wikipedia page — he ticks more boxes than the usual American ambassador: Harvard’s JFK School of Gov’t, UN permanent representative for eight years, highly rated consultant, op-ed contributor for a broad range of very respectable MSM outlets from left of center to center-right, homosexual in a long term relationship, like our ryuge...

But he has been as outspoken about President Trump’s positions as his colleagues were for President Obama in previous years, which understandably ruffles feathers in Germany and elsewhere. Clearly it has not occurred to them to be grateful he has not openly organized, trained, and financed right-leaning opposition parties, unlike what President Obama’s ambassador to Israel did for the opposition to Bibi Netanyahu, and what I suspect the Democratic Party did again this year without waiting for American government sanction.

#5 Actually he's not popular because he has acted like a diplomatic elephant in a china shop.

#6 So, Germans - who fawned on Obama - dislike him?

#7 Yes, because just as the dem idea of bipartisanship is "bend over and assume the dem position," the Cherman idea of diplomacy is "bend over and assume the Merkel position." Nothing else is seemly.

#8 "I get it. I gotta act nice in
Dis place," sez Ambassador Tyson,
But, sadly, at lunch
Someone throws the first punch
In that porcelain factory in Meissen.
