A Mussolini Love Letter

At the age of 54 on Christmas Day 1937, Mussolini wrote this to his mistress:
Darling you are enough for me. Do you realize that I don't do anything except think of you? For example if at night I wake up and go down to piss, a lot of the time I am so drowsy I do it on the floor. Then you come into my mind and I think: If only you were here...I am really amazed I think of you so much.

  1. Lol. It's funny, but that's exactly the kind of love letter I'd expect Il Duce to have penned.

  2. Trump doesn't tilt his head back quite this far, but his pose frequently reminds me of Mussolini. As for this letter from the M-man himself, I laughed out loud. If only his mistress were here ... he'd piss on her instead of the floor?
