I well remember a British government minister (or it may have been a senior civil servant; I really can't remember) angrily leaving his chair and storming out of the studio in the middle of an awkward TV interview.

Unfortunately he forgot that he was connected to the desk by a corded earphone and bloody near garrotted himself! Hilarious.

Trump is like a toddler. I really would be interested to find out where he sits in the autism scale.

Apparently his son might be autistic:

This is what he does.  He runs away from awkward questions. Or shuts down the interviewer quickly and then swiftly changes the subject.

The day I realised for the first time what a conmerchant this guy was  .... during his election campaign some journalists who were determined to get a confession out of him that this whole birther theory had been manufactured nonsense from start to finish, asked him to confess this.


He dismissed them in one quick sentence and deftly passed the blame to Hillary. It filled me with disgust that for months on end he had obsessed over this topic, saying that Obama was born abroad and saying he was pouring money and resources into investigating Obama, and finally claiming he had received some great gems of information from the detectives he paid to investigate him ...... then sudden silence.

Instead of  a proper confession and apology he glossed over the issue - because he did not want to alienate the huge number of cretinous fools among his fans, who believed Obama was born abroad and thus ineligible for presidency.

I realised in that instant what a conartist he was. Not a very bright one, but then most of his fans are even more stupid than he is, so his stupidity is no obstacle to his plans.

Trump can be Impeached or removed under the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution.  Impeachment is by way of a Bill of Impeachment, brought by the House, and tried by the Senate, for high crimes and misdemeanors.  The 25th Amendment, Section 4, provides that should the VP and all the principal officers of the executive department, present to both the head of the Senate and the Speaker of the House their written declaration that the president is unable to fulfill his duties, the VP shall take over.  Trump has exhibited behavior suggesting senility or alzheimer's disease.  However, the 25th Amendment is not limited to physical disability...the Constitution does not specify.

That case of high crimes and misdemeanors is being worked on as we speak, but with a Republican Congress (House and Senate) it is slow going.  Not that Trump is a real Republican--he represents a 3d-Party movement--but he ran ostensibly as a  Republican, and the Republicans want to see what they can get out of him before throwing him under the bus.  

This is compounded by a secondary problem, which is: the Republicans don't know what they want.  As I have been saying for several years, the Republican Party is dead.  The dead shell still twitches, however, because of structural manipulations (gerrymandering, voter suppression and collusion with foreign powers).  Ironically, these have had the effect of exacerbating the wounds.  Primarying, made possible by extreme gerrymandering,  has become a way of splitting the party.  So, internally, the Party is divided in what it wants, and cannot muster a majority.  They are in a stall.

Trump is the most corrupt president since the two terms of Civil War General U. S. Grant (1869-1877).  The internecine of the Republican Party delays the delivery of evidence, and therefore, the implementation of removal procedures.
