If Trump doesn't win over there - beware his plans for Clare

And the worst part of it all is that if Donald Trump fails to win the Republican nomination, well then his next target will be Ireland. We have an exclusive here for you: The Donald wants to become The Taoiseach, and he has chosen a tried and tested route.

We will get back to the Irish angle soon enough and the possible banning of Tipperary people from entry into a certain neighbouring county over a narrow border bridge.

I was trying for ages and ages to think up a one-word description of Donald. 'Bigot' came to mind, as did 'warmonger'. 'Megalomaniac' was a definite. And in a kinder moment, even the word 'entrepreneur' was a possibility. After all, the man has built very high buildings, usually called after himself, and he is very wealthy. 'Demagogue' is my favourite though at the moment.
