    The problem is that someone like that is President of the USA. We can make fun of him but he’s dangerous to the whole world. We used to have Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto to laugh at but he was more-or-less harmless. Trump already has done some really stupid thing affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands and he seems to have the potential to destroy the Earth in a fit of pique.

    If you want to scare yourself have a look at this interview with Dr Bandy Lee, the lead author of The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President

    Probably the only good thing about him is that he seems to want to stay on good terms with Russia, probably for the wrong reasons but he’s not the cold war hawk Hilary was/is

    The Russians, reportedly, are pretty sure that Americans supplied the intelligence that helped get Lt. Gen. Valery Asapov killed and there have been a couple other incidents. See True or not it sounded like Russian were seriously annoyed.

    I imagine this has not reassured the Russians

    #3 Marcus Wow the general’s uniform …

    Ah you are just envious.

    Some of the Canadian dress uniforms are quite striking.

    I remember being in the Ottawa army mess one evening with a friend when an army officer in one of cavalry regiments came in full dress came in. He even had spurs on his riding boots. My friend who was a civilian member of the RCMP remarked, slightly scornfully, “At least we still have horses”.
