What a happy bunch indeed.

My son is going to London tomorrow to see if the planned demonstrations over the visit that he's heard about actually happen.

I've always found the opprobrium towards Trump quite baffling.

I hasten to add that my son isn't one of those who doesn't think that Trump should be here.

My son enjoyed his day, meeting Internet friends and talking to anti-Trump demonstrators in the Downing Street area.

Did he get any sense of exactly what it is that they find so offensive about Mr. Trump? None of the ones I've seen seem to be very coherent.

It just seems to be that they believe everything that the media prints about him.

I don't necessarily believe anything that the papers print but I have heard enough actual speeches he has made to form the opinion that there is a complete narcissist in the White House. That is the politest thing I can say about him.

It's the PC Brigade who don't like him. He's looking after the people of America, that's why they voted for him. If only we had someone leading us with the same guile. Doesn't need to feather his own nest or appease people, already a self made man. Has traits that people disagree with, but haven't we all. Nice to see somebody steering a course and not just treading water. Would rather have him as a leader than the bottom feeding, brown nosing politicians we have.

Apart from keeping children in cages, of course. We will have to agree to disagree. I am far from being a member of the PC brigade. In fact I hate all that rubbish but you can be a strong leader without being a bigot and a misogynist and you can put your own country first by all means but you have to remember that you are only one player on a huge stage. The man has zero idea of his own failings and a lot of the Executive Powers he has signed have been simply to overturn decisions made by the Obama administration because his ego is so great.
As for his fortune...how many times was he bankrupt again? His wealth has been built on dirty deals and cheating the little guy. I won't even elaborate on his affairs, his attitude to women, his buffoonery or his lack of world knowledge. He thinks Ireland is part of the UK.
I actually worry for the world because of his lack of diplomacy and his rather naive belief in his own popularity.

Here are a few of his witterings.

On abortion

“Do you believe in punishment for abortion – yes or no – as a principle?” 

“The answer is there has to be some form of punishment.”

“For the woman?”

“Yeah, there has to be some form.”


On global warming

"It's really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!" Twitter

On global warming

"The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

On Making America Great Again

"The line of 'Make America great again,' the phrase, that was mine, I came up with it about a year ago, and I kept using it, and everybody's using it, they are all loving it. I don't know, I guess I should copyright it, maybe I have copyrighted it."

MyFox New York, March 2015

("Let's Make America Great Again" was one of Ronald Reagan's most well-known campaign slogans)

On pop culture

"My favourite part [of Pulp Fiction] is when Sam has his gun out in the diner and he tells the guy to tell his girlfriend to shut up. 'Tell that bitch to be cool. Say: Bitch be cool.' I love those lines."

As quoted in TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald, 2005.

On family

"She does have a very nice figure... If [Ivanka] weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her."

The View, 2006

I must admit that I don't find him as bad as George Bush Jnr.
