I don't know why people are so upset about this tweet. Its been 200 years since the British burnt the White House, get over it already. I don't think they meant anything by it. They probably thought we could have a sense of humor about it by now considering the closeness of our two countries.When it comes to the diplomatic use of a Twitter account, it seems that even 200 years isn’t distance enough to spare a nation’s blushes.
