In normal times, Donald Trump would be a mere historical footnote; one of those electoral quirks which occasionally happens in a democracy. He would have made his run, gained some traction for his plain speaking and then, ideally, he would have faded out of the race and be remembered as just another oddity, like Sarah Palin or Ross Perot.

But these aren't normal times and the Teflon Don is certainly living up to his nickname. As he crashes from one self-inflicted gaff to the next, behaving like the comments section of a newspaper come to life, this is a man who may well go down in history as the candidate with the most extreme and, frankly, bonkers views of any of the candidates.
