“It’s working out very nicely….”



“It’s working out very nicely,” President Donald J. Trump said in a brief response to a question on Saturday afternoon. “You see it in the airports, you see it all over. It’s working out very nicely, and we are going to have a very, very strict ban, and we are going to have extreme vetting, which we should have had in this country for many years.”(Source BBC )

      1. 🙂 All the best. With public expression of disapproval and responses from judiciary, state level and even Ford & Silicon Valley, there may be a chance to put a brake on the train.

    1. Alas, the White House warren has gone to the dogs, and there is a cry of “Havok” echoing in the halls of freedom & justice.

    1. Each day more wonderment and dismay. Hope lies in the loud voices of public discontent and the core of the American values stays strong. Here in Canada, the poison slowly creeps in – those poor grieving families in Quebec. May this snake of hate be caught & cast out .

  1. Seems like ‘that man’ has been invited by our benighted PM on a state visit to the UK and despite one million signatures (and counting) on a petition won’t reconsider. There’s going to be trouble on the streets, I really do fear.

    1. It will be less likely to find Trump supporters waving flags and steaks on the streets of London when he arrives. Perhaps he should stay at his golf club in Scotland, they are sure to raise a few kilts in his direction.

      Actually the way things are going, difficult to say whether he will still be in charge.

      1. There appears to be much concern behind the screen about his emotional/psychological fitness to serve.



        I keep looking at his behaviour & language from my experience as a Special Education teacher. I suspect that he has some form of ADHD. His coping strategies and self worth are based on processing frustrations ( a full adult lifetime ). He tries to cover and over compensate. He wants to be accepted, but distrusts the system. Many individuals with learning processing issues have low self esteem and often feel as if the “game ” is rigged ( in so far as it does not compensate or recognize the processing handicap it is an uneven playing field) . Trump’s family wealth would work around educational challenges without actually giving him any real support ( especially in the past when so little was done for students ).

    2. Just seen your detailed response, Joseph, sorry. Yes, any professional would be able to analyse his behaviour accurately, but as he eschews expert opinion of any kind he’s not going to accept that he has any faults or problems.

      1. Yes, that is his coping method. Meanwhile, I eagerly await for him to tell us what just happened in Wales and Prince Edward Island ( which are part of the same country in a Trump world reality). It will make Sweden look like,….. Sweden. 🙂

      2. Nothing yet, but the way it is going, I would not be surprised. Heck, if you sent him a tweet telling him to check out what was happening in Wales & Prince Edward island, I would not be surprised if there was a headline about it by the end of the day.

    1. He and his supports want/see simple black and white solutions to complex problems – Unable to recognize/acknowledge the unintended consequences and collateral damage that can appear in the implied spaces of intricate social structures, whether they arise from political, economic, environmental or technological change.

    1. Many thanks John. Each day brings a another What If moment from a parallel universe – looking at this from the outside, your shaken country looks like Crazy Town. The only hope on the horizon is the growing voice of public dissent and the power of judicial checks and balance.
