As an American I am embarassed by Trump every time I go into Twitter and see our juvenile pathological liar-in-Chief and pathological projectionist-in-Chief demeaning another person who is superior to him just to make himself look better.

And I'm embarrassed for all of you, too.

Spend absolutely ages choosing a writer that can be trusted, to come into the White House, and do a story about "what really goes on", and then when it comes out, deny that what goes on, is what really goes on.

Trump really has to go now. It was entertaining at first, but it's all to serious to have him the White House.

It's frustrating when Trump supporters conflate criticism of Trump with criticism of the USA. No one was accusing them of being anti-American when they were criticising Obama. It's nothing to do with the USA, it's to do with that one man.

It’s a Republican thing. We were called unAmerican and unpatriotic when we criticized George W. Bush for lying us into the Iraq War in 2003. Trump called the black NFL players unpatriotic for kneeling during the National Anthem protesting the shooting of unarmed black men. But it’s fine for Trump to have a treasonous relationship with Russia?

It's OK, Trump's supporter's views won't be affected by what's in the book, because it's in a book. They'll have to wait until it gets serialised as bumper stickers.

Given that the man's latest soundbite is that he's "like, really smart", and given how upset his supporters on this board get when people do anything that indicates that they might be vaguely intelligent, I look forward to his fans here finally giving up on their man.

I'm of the opinion that Mr Trump believes if he says something enough times, loud enough, then somebody, somewhere, is bound to listen. Seemed to work last year!

I have heard the news about Baltimore's town being completely destroyed by frosty weather.

At least Reagan had a couple of colon operations, thus meaning he wasn't a complete arsehole.

Trump, unfortunately, is the full Monty.

Reagan's stance on the AIDS epidemic made me physically sick. Bush JR was a complete cock (I know, rather simplified). Obama was a hypocrite. And now Trump. And so it goes on.

Being from Britain, MP probably had about the same level of influence at getting Trump into power, as you people living in Russia might have had... err, OK, maybe a little less then!
