Since the publication of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House and the excerpts published by it by the Guardian, there is now little doubt that the President of the United States is a very, seriously maladjusted man. The Guardian headline puts it very neatly ‘Paranoia, fear of germs, burgers in bed and extra TVs: Trumps habits revealed.’ But the book itself makes it frighteningly clear that this is a man to be feared. He has his finger on an appalling nuclear trigger.
Bob @huntthesnark has given us all the chance to laugh at the man with his Gilbert and Sullivan lyric and I’m putting it up now because we need to be able to laugh.
I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius.
I have a mighty button and no problems with my penius.
I have no time for television, golf or social media
Since my brain is way way better than the best encyclopedia.
I’m cutting tax, I’ll build a wall, I’ll take away their medicare
You can trust me ‘cos I’m orange and I have the most amazing hair.
So with my total ignorance of matters heterogeneous
I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius!
Compared to other leaders, my behavior’s quite unusual
My twisted tweets and pissed-on sheets have managed to amuse you all
I have to drink two-handed ’cause my fingers are the teeniest
I need a sippy-cup with the inscription “Stable Genius.”

But laughter will not save us if he decides to declare war on North Korea. What is needed if it can be legally and safely done, would be for this dangerous president to be impeached and as quickly as possible. Bandy Lee who is a world authority in psychiatry says ‘paranoia and feelings of inadequacy make powerful weapons very tempting to use.’ She says ‘to make a diagnosis one needs all the relevant information… but to assess dangerousness, one only needs enough information to raise alarms, it is about the situation and not the person’ and goes on to say ‘it does not take a mental health professional to see that a person of Trumps impairments, in the office of Presidency, is a danger to us all’.
I am extremely glad that the threat of demonstrations against him, should he visit this country, has persuaded him to change his mind about the visit to London to which he was invited by Mrs May and which was to take place next month. It shows that the threat of a massive demonstration still has power. And we should all be paying great attention to this presidency and protesting against the man and his actions whenever and wherever we can.
