I have always said that Lefties have a problem working out what normal
people think and do. We have even more trouble second guessing the levels
of paranoia that the Intelligence Services feed on. Think *Manchurian
Candidate*.  Think of it as a documentary and you get closer to the world
view of the CIA etc.

It seems to me that the POTUS to-be is in deep trouble. His defence that he
wouldn't be near prostitutes' pee because he is a "germophobe" is almost
worse than an admission of guilt.

The world is faced with huge problems and we have the worst kind of clown
moving into the Oval Office.

Here in Australia, the Right have taken heart from Trump's victory.  It is
probably the same elsewhere.  The Right's problem now is that Trump's
never-ending episodes of humiliation and disgrace will also impact
negatively on them.

The Guardian columnist has said "Let the Follies Begin".
Indeed, they have.
