For a start, chivalry.

When Donald and Melania Trump were greeted at the White House for the first time, I saw one of the lowest displays of courtesy I have ever seen in my life....

In that instance, Trump could not be lesser of a gentleman if he actually tried.

Is it a big deal that The President be a gentlemen?

Yes, it is.

It would have been a big deal had the POTUS been a lady.

We heard on our breakfast show news (always a reliable source of information - HA!) that the Facebook dude - Mark Zukerberg - is rumoured to be thinking of running for President.

So a facebooker is thinking of running against a twitter fanatic - how modern ;)

You are so right Sally, so i guess playing golf is hard.....well it would be for him as he would have to ensure his comb over doesnt fall into his eyes before he tees off.

Look, Melania may not be a "lady" depending on which news outlet you listen to.

But at the moment of the above video, she was the incoming FLOTUS (First Lady Of The United States).

It's about decorum......something apparently our current president is sadly lacking in.

The whole world saw that inexcusable lack of chivalry and immediately saw that this president was going to be what they thought he was going to be......a doofus draped with the trappings of state.

And the great United States of America officially went willingly into it's lowest ebb.

What should Trump have done right? He should've waited for his wife to disembark, waited for them to couple, and then go up the steps together as incoming President and incoming First Lady.

That's what didn't happen as the world watched.

I gotta tell ya, I wish I was a fly on the wall during the Angela Merkel/Donald Trump meeting before he refused to shake her hand in the press opportunity.

He literally looked like a little boy that had been overruled by his teacher......IN THE WHITE HOUSE!

LOL!

I heard the news last night about the sacking of Mr Comey, what I didn't hear then was that Mr Lavrov is due to visit  the White House today.

One of Mr Trump's attractions apparently was that he was not a politician, did not 'do politics', however I don't think that is a reason to do politics badly.

The 'not a politician' thing.
I've heard a lot of people say this. But it's distinction without a difference. The moment you run for public office, from a president down to a local councillor, you are a politician whether you 'do politics' badly or well. Or bigly.

Having said that, should we say this? Is he good enough to be President of the United States?

I think that's a great question.

Ok......now the European/Middle East tour is over. So how do we gauge it? Was it a success? If so why was it a success?

In the Middle East I saw nothing but cowtailing and nothing tangible.

In Europe, we saw this.....

What the hell does that even mean? Get outta the way, I'm more important than you?

The Trump camp calls the tour as a success.

The rest of the world are asking "Who is this dickhead?"

Even Lucius Malfoy would have been a better leader.

To be fair, I think it's probably not so much "Who is this dickhead?" as it's "#@&$%*!!!!"

Important point to be noted.

As much as anyone thinks Donald J. Trump has actually perverted the course of justice, that does not mean the Congress of the United States will "IMPEACH" him.

They may choose to ignore. It is within their right to do so.

My news says the same Helen. I do know that impeachment doesn't mean he gets kicked out as president though.

I believe that it means that that there are some Democrats who are drafting articles of impeachment i.e. documents are being prepared in readiness to kick off an impeachmeant process. This doesn't mean that anything will happen anytime soon, but that some people believe that they are able to start preparing a pretty good case for impeachment. They're most probably pleased to have heard James Comey today. As jmaxg says even if a case for impeachment is made ready and presented it may not be accepted to go forward.

Meanwhile I'm watching UK General Election results....

Ok...guys.....may I? I have looked into this for many years after investigating the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

According to the articles of impeachment, a submission must be brought forth to, initially, the House of Representatives accusing the current president of "crimes and misdemeanors".

There is now an independent investigator in the form of Robert Muller.

If his investigations show a knowing cooperation between the Russian government and the Trump Campaign, all he can do is record and present.

Once it has been made clear to the House of Representatives, it is up to them to act in whatever direction they are most comfortable with.

Will that mean articles of impeachment are drawn up?

Actually no........I don't think that will happen.

The current conservative based majority in the House of Representatives will explain it away.
