The unpleasant problem for all those strident anti-Trump protesters in the US holding up their "NOT MY PRESIDENT" placards is that he is, whether they like it or not.

That one slogan reflects the underlying personal vanity of the era: Democrats seem to be taking Trump’s elevation to the White House as a personal affront more than a political outrage to the nation.

So the internet buzzes with clever memes and mash-ups poking fun at the teeming stupidities of the new President. Fresh satirical blood runs in the veins of Saturday Night Live as it lampoons Trump and his stumblebum crew of insiders.
