Not viewing - if I want to hear an arsehole make a noise, I can fart anytime.

Repeat as necessary for any other 'Trump' pronouncement for the rest of his tenure.

Give it time. Despite being arguably the hardest person to kill on the planet, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if somebody has a go at some point.

I take pleasure in the death of nobody save Jeremy Kyle and those people who keep ringing trying to get me to claim compensation for a car accident I never had and PPI I never took out, but maybe Trump ought to be kept safe - if he croaks then Pence will jump in, and next to him Trump is a model of sanity and easygoing reasonableness.

The sun rises on the tangerine nightmare - and sets on America. Shame that they have sunk so low.

Agreed. It's an abject day for the world  :(

I want to be wrong. I want to be proven to be cynical, defeatist and unfair. I want him to demonstrate that, now in power, the clowning around will stop and that he'll show himself to be a serious, thoughtful man of grace, gravitas and substance.

But he's such a petulant man-child that, when informed that some 800-900,000 people were due to attend the inauguration (compared to 1.8 million for Obama) and that many hotels in the capital simply weren't filling up, he instantly declared these reports as "phony" and "rigged" (remember that one?). So I suspect I'm highly likely to be disappointed.

My guess is he'll last around 18 months before he is either impeached or is forced to resign. Whether it will be due to deviousness, incompetence or inconvenient skeletons exiting from cupboards remains to be seen.

That was because Obama was the first black president, so it was a novelty. I enjoyed Obama's inauguration but I also thought Trump did well, and he appears to be more God-fearing than I had expected.

I'm not convinced that is at all reassuring, Spud.

He's playing to his audience, Spud. My dog knows more about Christian values than he does.

Why, in a country whose Constitution states the following:

Quote
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..

is it necessary for a new President to swear an oath on ... not one ... but two bibles simultaneously?

It's America. Did you expect anything different in a country where atheism is still stigmatised to the extent that atheists are trusted as much as Muslims?*

Do you consider a six-times bankrupt racist misogynist who mocks the disabled, approves of waterboarding and who fathered a child by the woman with whom he was having an affair to be an inspirational example of a god-fearing man, Spud?

But, but, but he said he was a Christian. SO it's all ok - it's part of God's plan  ::)

"trump"  >:(

I've bought my tin hat!

If someone added Donald Trump as president in a film, it would have been an unbelievable character.

At least in the film "King Ralph" the guy was funny with it and likeable.

Donald Trump is neither.

I can't believe anyone would vote him in, but they have.
