I've got to admit,... that is a pretty witty slight, I am almost tempted to say that they're manufactured in Alaska.

Actually it sounds pretty serious, and their current leader sounds like a bit of a despot; another country going down to the whims of populism?

Nope. Just making the occasional joke when something humorous comes along.
