I don’t think the guy is anyone famous.
Ah, OK.

I was halfway expecting them to be a couple with the surname Black. That at least would vaguely justify their wearing that shirt as a bit of trolling and not just being complete morons.
That would be my guess. They're still morons.

Being a moron is not a jealous explanation.

The administration and its appointees are careless to the point of recklessness with OpSec.

US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland's cell phone call to President Donald Trump from a restaurant in Ukraine this summer appears to be a shocking security breach that raises significant counterintelligence concerns...

Normally, a US ambassador talking to the President would do so from the embassy using a secure line, one former intelligence official told CNN. "Of all the communications, cell phones are even more vulnerable than non-secure landlines, which are way more vulnerable than secure communications facilities," the former official said.
That lapse was only amplified by the fact that Sondland made the call in public, where it could have been easily overheard and in a foreign country that is already being targeted by foreign adversaries of the US, including Russia, current and former officials said.

"Why a president is talking to an ambassador on a non-encrypted telephone is crazy for today's age, and worse in public," said Todd Carroll, a former FBI official who served as assistant special agent in charge of the cyber and counterintelligence branch.
"Ukraine is one of the most open areas for intelligence agencies to work in. Both sides. I was told when I was there in 2010 that expect all your calls to be monitored," Carroll added.
The Russians, in particular, maintain a particularly large intelligence presence in Ukraine and are known to target the communications of US officials.
"There is little doubt that the Russians and perhaps multiple other foreign intelligence services would have intercepted this call. Moscow undoubtedly would have been pleased," according to Polymeropoulos.

This is why I can never buy the 'Trump is a foreign agent' theory. Russia would never recruit anyone this incompetent.

Lavrenti Beria would have had him liquidated for incompetence, I give you that.

Actually, in the KGB hierarchy, you liquidated the competent ones first because they were a threat to your position.

I just find this amusing: The foreign ministers of Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt have been meeting in DC to resolve a dispute over a dam on the Nile, and apparently Trump was at one of the meetings.

I am struggling to imagine Trump trying to discuss this with the foreign ministers of 3 African countries.

"I've done lots of construction projects. Lots of construction. Dams, hotels, it's all just construction. Nobody knows construction like me."

"Nile river. Big river. Amazing river. So much water. It's unbelievable. And get this, you know, most people don't know this, but if you put a dam in you can get electricity out. It's amazing. But they do it."

"I guess you have a lot of the blacks in Ethiopia. I'm friends with Kanye West, he's one of yours."

I tweeted at him, saying that Natasha and Svetlana had heard that he was bad and they needed to show him who the boss is He clicked on the link and the spyware was automatically installed on his phone.
