Then, and I can’t recall when this was (it’s too early in the morning) I read where he publicly went berserk when a volcano eruption in Iceland-an event which of course the Iceland government had complete control over mind you- caused such a massive cloud of ash that thousands of flights got cancelled. One, apparently, affected his schedule.
