It's becoming increasingly, if not soul-destroyingly, clear that the news for the next four years will consist entirely of people losing their minds over something that the new President of the United States has done or said or tweeted. Especially tweeted.

Donald Trump may be mad as the proverbial box of frogs, but now he's making everyone else go bonkers too - an insanity which manifested itself in Ireland last week in calls for the Taoiseach to cancel his annual visit to the White House on St Patrick's Day in protest at the President's executive order imposing a 90-day halt to foreign arrivals from seven, mainly Muslim, countries.
