I’m going to take a leaf out of Canary boss Kerry-Anne Mendoza’s book. She tweeted:

“‘He wouldn’t *really* ban Muslims. It’s just a campaign tactic!’

“Yeah, well done Trump apologists.”


“He wouldn’t *really* build a wall along the Mexican border. It’s just a campaign tactic!”

“Yeah, well done Trump apologists.”

“‘He doesn’t *really* believe there was widespread voter fraud. He certainly won’t launch an investigation!’

“Yeah, well done Trump apologists.”

“He wouldn’t *really* gag US government agencies!”

“Yeah, well done Trump apologists.”

“He wouldn’t *really* sign an executive order pushing potentially-leaky oil pipelines through Native Americans’ drinking water supplies!”

“Yeah, well done Trump apologists.”

“He wouldn’t *really* sign an executive order making it harder for women to have safe abortions!”

“Yeah, well done Trump apologists.”

To be honest, This Writer has no idea how many of these actions were actually denied by supporters of Herr Drumpf before he took office, but they are certainly activities that nobody in their right mind could support, given the evidence we have.

Regarding abortion, I particularly approved of the following comment by Martin Belam of the Graun:

And Felicity Morse wrote a strong piece about her own experience of abortion and the shame society attaches to it – shame that may worsen as a result of Herr Drumpf’s order.

But these are attacking only the symptoms of the problem we must all face, and for the next four years, at least.

The cause is Donald Trump, and the very particular mentality that got him elected – and us into a huge amount of trouble.

We need to talk about Donald.

I read an interesting opinion – that the President is disturbed because, while he won enough electoral colleges to get into the Oval Office, he didn’t win the popular vote. Here it is:

Some of you may remember there was a similar issue with another Republican president – Richard Nixon.

He never got over his loss to John F Kennedy in 1960.

When he finally got into the White House in 1969, Nixon was a mass of paranoia. He didn’t trust anybody – just as Drumpf doesn’t seem to trust anybody now. With Nixon, we all know where that led.

Will we see history repeat itself?
