    President Donald Trump

    Well, it's almost here!!

    The unbelievable is about to happen tomorrow.

    I wonder how it's all going to pan out.

    Whatever happens, it's going to be a roller coaster. Hold on................

    It's going to be interesting.

    I have to say that I'm rather repelled by the protestors and a list rent-a-gobs whining and doom saying about it.

    Here was a vote. He won. He has to be given the chance to get on with it. If folk don't like what he does, then campaign and protest but don't argue the result. Democracy is too important to be undermined in this way.

    They'll end up looking bloody stupid if things go well for him anyway and he'll get two terms!

    People have a right to protest, to whine and to predict disaster - even in a democracy. If things go badly for him, it'll be the alt-right and their conservative friends who will be looking ridiculous for having backed such a cretin in the first place.

    Here's a guy who won the electoral college, but lost the popular vote by near enough 3mil. Someone who has a range of fraud and sexual assault allegations lining up behind him, who clearly has a very loose understanding of the world he's about to enter and who has surrounded himself with a range of right-wing cranks as advisers. This is not going to end well and as worrying as it is to see him ascend to power, it will be joyous to watch him fall.

    I'd have no problem if he was your standard, right wing republican type who maybe has a vague grasp on some of the big issues around the world or knows when to hold his or her tongue as befits the status of the office. However, that's not what we have - he's got a paper-thin skin, he's impulsive and a compulsive liar.

    He will be given time - there's no other option - but my money is on him not seeing out his full term.

    Advice to President Trump, avoid grassy knolls and book repositories, particularly in Dallas.
    #Persevered
    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    I didn't say they couldn't do it! I said I was not impressed by it! ....and ultimately it might undermine the liberal cause (which would be a pity).

    Being what he is has gotten him the biggest gig on the planet, I can't see him changing anytime soon unfortunately.

    I didn't watch any of the previous inaugurations and have no plans to watch this one. Another President will tell us what he is going to do for the next four years and then carry out the exact opposite.

    Hopefully everything will pass in a tediously boring ennui and protesters will have pished off home before the Laker game starts.

    The Democrats advice to President Trump, visit grassy knolls and book repositories, particularly in Dallas.
    Also, take in a play, a concert or a train ride.

    The only thing I will say about Trumpton is that he's the proverbial fox in the chicken roost.
    The smug little power cliques in Washington (& likewise Westminster) are finally being shown up for what they are. Make no mistake, Donnie Boy is in there as a protest vote. Sit back and watch the feathers fly.

    This is the worst speech ever written. Utter fantasy, almost a parody of itself, poorly articulated in a man-child's voice.

    If you alienate the NSA, CIA et al and key players in your own party, then there are some unpleasant chickens that might get together before coming home to roost. Grassy knolls etc. indeed.

    His speech delivered exactly what the people that voted for him wanted, they will be delighted.

    The BBC analyst nailed it.

    His speech preached about putting America first to create jobs etc but his ire was aimed at 'Asia' and 'Mexico' when it should be aimed at robots that don't carry passports. Unless he has a time machine that can turn the clock back to the 1950s his job creation plans are pure fantasy.

    Also is it just me or is Melania Trumps body language really strange. She's like a mannequin. You see the Obamas and they look genuinely close and intimate with each other. Mrs Trump looks like she's paid to be there.

    The only way to deal with this reality is to pretend it isn't happening.

    Trump is playing into the hands of Russia. He will put NATO's head on a plate for Putin and jeapordise world peace. God forbid, but my jaw dropped at the TV commentator's initial description of the new Vice-President ....... here is the man who will step into breach in the event of an assassination. Talk about tempting fate.

    Trump sees Europe as economical competition, if he and Putin can destabilise Europe economically then it's win win for them.

    Interesting to see all the protestors in London signing and erecting banners on the Millennium Bridge.

    I was down there from 2 o' clock this afternoon and didn't see any of the *******. They must have turned up for 5 minutes to get their photos taken and then pissed off back to the student union.

    I'm not sure his job creation plan is pure fantasy. If you stop or put hefty tariffs on imports, then you make what you produce at home more attractive. I'm not sure if that would make things more expensive for American businesses or not.
    Without trying to be sensationalist, there's a lot of similarities between what he is saying and what hitler was saying in the 1930s. If you add that to the fact that Russia are further down the road with a similar philosophy, it doesn't bode well for the rest of the world.
    Right now the world looks very similar to the 1930s, the positive is that at the moment we don't have a major aggressor to bring the two sides to conflict.
