Only a few days ago, he was openly mocking Biden for wearing a mask in public.
Honestly. What an aerosol.
The least presidential president in US history.

Trump is a dickhead and an awful president

But I hope he and his wife both make 100% recovery

I've sent a couple of cartoons on the subject to Private Eye, so hope he lives until they're published.

"Alastair Campbell's comedian daughter Grace reveals she felt a responsibility to 'cheer up' her father when he was depressed '"

The story is doing the rounds on the left and the right, take your pick:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-8803415/Alastair-Campbells-daughter-says-felt-responsibility-cheer-depressed.html#comments

Ellen DeGeneres said she got her humour from trying to cheer up her mother. Do any other comedians fit that mould ? ?

I'd like to be magnanimous and rise above politics. But, he's behaved so awfully over this and has caused so many unnecessary deaths, I do find it very hard to be sympathetic.

At least Trump is better than Boris Johnson. When Boris contracted Covid, he selfishly stayed indoors, being treated until better. Whereas Trump selflessly gets out, despite being sick, and shares the love with his motorcade minders and his intelligent fans.

Sod the virtue-signalling of well-wishing. As Hughie Munro used to say: "He is one of those people who would be enormously improved by death."

The infection rates blunder has been blamed by some on the fact it's done on an excel spreadsheet...

Good grief

I heard the Brexit treaty was drawn up on a commodore 64

Er no, but 'ang on a sec.......................................

Yes, see what you mean - clever, but they're still American, and I detest the way Americanisms are creeping into the English language. I've even heard "heads up" FFS on the BBC a number of times. Awful. Angy
