I am fast coming to the conclusion that Trump must suffer from some kind of psychosis whereby he is unable to separate imagined events from objective ones. I encountered something similar in an elderly relative with early dementia who would recall entire conversations that never took place and insist that they were real despite no other party having any recollection, then getting angry when the plans we had apparently 'agreed' on did not happen. What had actually happened is that she had imagined the conversation before (which is normal, most people rehearse conversations in their head if they want to convince someone to do something) but then confusing that simulated conversation with something that had actually taken place. So maybe when Trump says he got the biggest electoral college win since Reagan he is remembering an egotistical fantasy of being told that?
I would hate to think this is actually the case with Trump. If it were it would mean we have someone who is senile or mentally psychotic in charge of the nuclear codes of the USA, which is strawberry floating terrifying.
This topic is amazing. Trump being so gotten to and Twitter ranting, the misunderstood usage of Fake News, the way he answers questions, deals with journalists and every day some sort of new chaotic piece of news.

Aspects of th press in the United States and United Kingdom have needed to be held to account for their lies and overt sensationalism for a very long time. The problem is he's launched an all out assault on those also telling the truth. For all his protestations he wants biased, fake news. His supporters want biased, fake news. You take away the press and all belief in it and you kill democracy.
It's a disaster. And the press are themselves to blame in many respects. The lack of a regulator in the USA like Ofcom to make sure the news that goes out on TV is balanced and as factual as possible is another massive problem. In the U.K. the majority of news is still consumed via the BBC, Sky News, ITV News and Channel 4 via TV, online and radio. It's the wall, the barrier, against websites and newspapers that lean a certain way. Fox News pioneered this monster and its grown ever since.

Does he ?
Nah I was joking. Trump loves Muslims and can't wait to invite lots of them over for a party.
You have no proof he hates muslims. He banned few nations which is absurd but if he hated muslims he would surely ban over 40 plus countries that are Muslim countries ?
You're right, he only tried to ban people from Muslim countries and it's not like he only banned Muslims from those nations and made an exception for people with "minority religions" from those countries is it?
And I guess in the run up to the election he never said there would be a complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US?
The little back and forth between Trump and John Sopel (BBC Politicial Correspondent) made me chuckle. In his nightly reports John Sopel couldn't show his disdain for Trump more if he tried, so I'm not surprised at Trump's remark. As a BBC correspondent you'd think he'd at least try and be balanced FFS.
Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me...
