Cometh the hour, cometh the Matt. Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey stood at the White House press lectern and spoke about the Ulvade shootings. It was such a convincing performance that it was easily possible to imagine him there on a more regular basis.

In a suit, white shirt and glasses, hair swept back smartly, he eulogised the victims of the attacks in Texas on May 24, which left 19 students and two teachers dead, and 17 others wounded. He held up photos of some of the victims. He talked about how nine-year-old Maite Rodriguez had only been identified by her green high-top Converse trainers.
