The subject matter is Trump and is he mad,his lies,descisions and behaviour are that of someone who doesn't know the consecuenses of his actions IMO.
At least Obama thougght through his actions before implementing them,that doesn't mean I agree with those actions but at least I can see the logic and thought pattern to them.
Trump,it seems likes to play golf and throw as many cats in as many pigeon lofts as he can find just to enjoy watching the resultant mayhem :?

The OP states
Given his latest episode re Jerusalem
. Which is where you can draw the comparison with Obama. You don't know whether Trump thought about his actions in this respect and the consequences. I imagine Obama's actions were worse concerning the loss of innocent lives. Is he mad?

Would that be this sort of stride, by any chance...?

It's spelled HILLARY as in a double L which is normally the male version of the name in UK.

The rather good four-part documentary on Trump said it all, especially his face when having to accompany Ivana at a reception to laud her, not his, achievements.

I'd say a privileged, deeply insecure, terminally narcissistic bully.

He truly believes that the US presidency is all about him.

Odd.
I suppose you can any name you want, and spell it any way you want as well.

Trouble with conventions, is that they can be broken.

Is it really that odd or troubling?
The problem with conventions is that some(not necessarily yourself) don't like them being broken,that's what I find odd.
Such as the unwillingness of society,because of convention and prejudice,to accept two people of the same sex,being in Love as a couple like an opposite sex couple,and wanting that to be recognised in the society they live in by being married.

But if we really want to explore oddness what can be more odd than a man being invested president of the USA when he didn't have the majority of the votes of the people who cast them.What kind of convention is that?
