Ohh, I'll leave that one open to conjecture.

Latest list of best/worst Presidents according to scholars. Personally I consider Trump's rating a bit too high!

That Trump signature! It looks like a seismograph registering an earthquake of magnitude 9+ on the Richter scale. Having made an amateur study of graphology when younger, I conclude that it is the signature of a highly disturbed egomaniac!

He must practice that signature a hell of a lot. It does appear extremely consistent. I know my own looks a bit different from one day to the next but he seems to have nailed his precisely.

You mean Trump signed that? I thought it was a chimp with a paint brush. Come to think of it . . .

If you saw the same signature on a page by itself, would you be able to read it?

I watched Steve Bannon being interviewed on CNN yesterday by the excellent Fareed Zakaria. Surprisingly I found him quite likeable with a great deal of charm. Odd given the loafing, unshaven brute he seemed to delight in portraying himself a couple of years ago. On the other hand, he had been in Italy for several weeks preaching his philosophies to a smaller party where elections have resulted in yet more chaos for that country where democracy has rarely resulted in anything other than hung parliaments.

Several points he made seemed eminently sensible on their own. However, his rationale for the anti-immigration policy was absolute nuts in my view. He portrayed himself as the saviour of blacks and Hispanics. Unless Immigration was curtailed, they would be condemned for life to low paid jobs and have no chance of advancement. Huh? Aren’t immigrants traditionally the ones who take up the low skilled jobs that many Americans don’t actually want? If you don’t ensure a continuous supply of cheap labour, instead of helping surely you are ensuring the majority of local minorities remain stuck at the bottom of the heap?

Naturally the discussion turned to “the Wall”. Bannon predicts another government shutdown unless Trump gets the funding in September.

"I believe that what he's going to do is, as we come up on September 30, if that appropriations bill does not include spending to fully build his wall -- not some $1.6 billion for prototypes, I mean to build the southern wall -- I believe he will shut down the government"
