The Presidency of Donald J Trump only really makes sense if you look at it through the lens of a bizarre reality TV show come to life. Like a real-life malevolent mashup of Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Thick of It and VEEP.
As must as I dislike a lot of his policies, Donald Trump was at least entertaining as he stumbled from one disaster to another – it will be a lot quieter when he leaves the Whitehouse.
The latest hilarious escapade from team Trump is some poor staffer booking the wrong Four Seasons which resulted in Rudy Giuliani giving a press conference between a crematorium and an adult shop. Armando Iannucci could not have written anything as hilarious.
I could write jokes for 800 years and I'd never think of something funnier than Trump booking the Four Seasons for his big presser, and it turning out to be the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot between a dildo store and a crematorium. pic.twitter.com/P45HV1daD9

Meanwhile, Rupert Murdoch tells Trump to quit his whining and pack his bags. One of the most bizarre aspects of the Trump Presidency was that Fox News had a core audience of one. Trump would watch it for hours every day and take direction and policy ideas directly from what he saw on TV.

Trump will not go quietly into the night, he loves the limelight too much. What can we expect from Season Two of the Trump show? His own TV station? A Meet the Osbournes style reality show? We await in anticipation.
