I thought it is about time we moved on. Election over and lets watch him.

I wonder if he can handle the work load?

My first thought, after spending an hour screaming "fuck" at the top of my voice over this latest insanity, was to ask myself the following question:

"Does Theresa May have a contingency plan in place, in case the new President Trump tries to grab her pussy?"

Then I realised that she does. Namely, beat him over the head with her broomstick, then turn him into a toad.

Though if she ever does this, will anyone notice the difference, apart from the disappearance of the mutated caterpillar on the top of his head?

The thing that worries me the most is that Christie is going to manage the transition.

So what will be the first of his big promises he'll renege on? Building the border wall and have Mexico pay for it? Indict Clinton? Renegotiating NAFTA? Blow up the Iran nuclear deal?

The ambitiously titled construction project "una pared para proteger contra Donald Trump" ("a wall to protect us from Donald Trump"), is intended to protect the country from the wave of refugees soon expected from the US.

Trump appoints climate denialist to lead EPA transition (read; dismantling).

Lets not forget .. bring China to table or something, that is what I am curious about, from all promises, most. I guess Mr Xi Jinping is on Valium right now.

He's probably saying to himself "what the fuck did I just do!?"

J/K - no, I think he's going to defeat ISIS. J/K again!

He's probably just going to sneer about how great he is and all the terrific things he is going to do in the next four years. Amazing things. The best things. Believe me. Believe me. Really terrific things. Everyone is saying these are the most terrific things.

Meanwhile, the FBI uncovers Al-Qaeda plot to just sit back and enjoy collapse of the United States.

Deporting 11 million illegal immigrants. He could do it but he probably doesn't want to. We'll be lucky if he deports half of them.

You'll be lucky if there were even half that amount of illegal immigrants.

Also, America has had a serious illegal immigrant problem since Christopher Columbus.

Everyone without North American ancestry of at least 1000 years, should be deported to Texas, and then the native Americans get to choose which ones they let back in.

Actually since about 1000 AD.

Normally I would roll my eyes at Scot's morbid fascination with American fatalism but in this case I think I'll be watching this space a lot. Trump has set himself up for a tall fucking order. It will be interesting seeing how he intends to deliver on the shit that is unconstitutional, unaffordable and violations of basic human rights, and the shit storm they would no doubt create.

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.

Apparently he also said something along the lines of NASA being just a low-orbit logistics company. Yeah, because that's all they do.
