Yes You Can. With Nicorette.
I have discovered a point of connection with the President-Elect. No, not that. The intelligence, charisma, etc, go without saying.
I've discovered that, like me, he uses Nicorette chewing gum. From this I assume that he's an ex-smoker.
Just as well, when you think about it. If getting a 'black' man elected President was an achievement, imagine the difficulty of getting a smoker elected in contemporary America.
(Oh, hell. Just thinking about the anti-smoking lobby makes me want to light a cigarette. Quick. Where did I put the Nicorette?)
Somebody said the only thing that could have derailed his campaign was if he was found to be sleeping with a gay terrorist. But the other thing that would have finished him would have been a photo of him having a sly fag (in the British sense) behind his campaign bus.
The anti-smoking nutters in America would probably have assassinated him long before election day.
Now he's leader of the free world and surrounded by a ring of steel he can do what he likes. For example, lighting one up in the Oval Office on his first day.
Go on, Barack, strike a light for liberty.
Yes, you can.
