Ah, Joe Kennedy, I could go on and on about him...
From the way he acted, he should have been dropped off in Berlin.
The Brits hated Joe Kennedy and he was later replace by John Gilbert (Gil) Wynant a former two term Republican Governor from New Hampshire. The Brits loved Wynant (who was kicked out of the Republican Party due to affection for the New Deal). FDR sent him to England so that he couldn’t run against him. Wynant had an affair with Churchill’s daughter Sara and, after returning to the US after the war, shot himself in despair over losing her. I’ve often wondered if Ayn Rand had him in mind when she created the Gail Wynant character in “The Fountainhead”, who also shot himself in the head over a woman among other things.
