There are plenty of riffs on the "behind every great man" adage. "Behind every great man is a greater woman." "Behind every great man is a surprised woman". "Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes."

Most of these could probably be applied to the new US president-elect - although his greatness has yet to be proven. Because whatever you think of The Donald - there's a lot to be said for his women.

Google "Trump's women" and you flinch.
