Donald Trump has sparked some major fear and loathing in Leinster House.

The loathing is the easy bit, with the new US president compared to Hitler, described as a fascist, and in a more collegial moment called an eejit. Politician after politician has found a more colourful way of showing just how outraged they are at the supposed leader of the free world.

There is rare consensus on the issue - to the point whereby everybody is trying to agree an all-party motion condemning the travel ban imposed on seven countries.
