With everything else going in Washington, it's worth paying attention to the Court, it's where lasting and seismic change could take place.
When Milo Yiannopoulos recovers from the weeks events, as I am sure he will, we must be ready and willing to confront him.
While Trump may ramble incoherently and speak in sentences usually associated with kindergarten, his vocabulary is the subject of much global discussion. Consider the newly popular words (including "tremendous") we're all throwing about with abandon.
As I left Westminster Hall, with the chant, 'Macron, Présidente!' ringing in my ears, I proudly grasped my EU flag whilst walking past Parliament, and once again felt what I had felt before last year's setbacks - inspired by politics - inspired by the possibility politics brings, let's all keep our fingers crossed and hope he pulls this off - En Marché !
A lot of this comes back to the filter bubble. By now, most of us are familiar with the damage it can cause. If you're perpetually fed with what you like, you lose contact with the real world. And the more you encounter the same opinions, the worse it gets.
Perhaps from day 33 onwards it might well prove opportune to change tack, perhaps we disincline our own druthers to forge the enemy, perhaps it's time we realise that that they aren't as different from us after all.
The on-going toxic vendetta between President Trump and the American media establishment (including the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and NBC)...
It's an interesting time to be a scientist. Recent proposed policy changes in the United States have the scientific community deeply troubled, most notably the assertion that science is somehow a bipartisan arena, or a matter of opinion.
When you look back at the global leaders over time, you can get a fairly strong idea about the state of the world in each particular era.
If Trump is a warning about the cost of ignoring anti-political sentiments and particularly the cost of broken promises, then the UK must reconsider the institutional feasibility constraints placed upon our politicians and make a greater effort to understand the personal costs of elected office.
Gaslighting, the act of manipulating someone by psychological means into doubting their own sanity, was named after a play and subsequent movie where a husband convinces his wife she is going mad by gradually dimming the lights, whilst telling her it is only her who thinks the lights are flickering.
When a musician like Madonna jokes about blowing up the White House, it only serves to crowd out the real and substantive criticisms of Trump. When he steps out of line, Trump needs to be challenged with facts and reason, not incoherent wailing or malicious threats. In an age where politicians must be incredibly careful about what they say and how they say it, famous celebrities should take similar care when they preach to us on political issues of which they might only have a limited understanding.
Sometimes I think that, as individuals and as a species, it is not until we are pushed to the brink, that we find the strength to evolve beyond our limited viewpoints and ego. The alternative is almost too unbearable to contemplate - the potential annihilation of human civilization and the destruction of life on an unprecedented scale.
I can count on two hands the amount of times I've been subject to direct racist insults. It's always a terrible shock. It takes my breath away and stays with me forever. The sense of injustice, of prejudice, the realisation that people judge you as different.
In the past, authoritarian regimes and unscrupulous governments have gone to great lengths to engineer actual events in order to justify their subsequent actions in the eyes of their people. But today, in the world of alternative facts and fake news, where the media is portrayed as the enemy of the People, fictional atrocities can be created at will - and the faithful will believe that they really happened.
We really are in a 'through the looking glass' phase of national and international politics with a dangerous growth of 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' dogma. Self styled moderates behaving like the right. Vexed liberals coming over all authoritarian. Reactionary western nationalists having a love-in with long time foe Russia.
