Amongst those things the live report of the attacks on the Twin Towers on 9/11.

Groenhuijsen feels for America and follows Obama's operations closely. Even when he's here in the Netherlands, his heart is still in America, where his wife and children are as well.
Orignally from the Frisian city Joure, 'America' popped up a lot when his father was back to cut the meat in the home of family Groenhuijsen. Father sometimes had to go to the US for his job at 'Douwe Egberts' and those stories possibly got Charles attention.
