I sat down with Aine Lawlor of RTE’s Radio 1 on Friday to discuss a roller-coaster week in US politics — even by Donald Trump’s standards — from the scrambled announcement on tariffs to the surprise declaration of a Trump-Kim Jong-Un face-to-face to the ever-closing Russia investigation.

There’s even the “bonus” of the simmering, possibly soon to be boiling, matter of Donald Trump’s sexual encounter in 2006 with porn star Stephanie Clifford, a.k.a. Stormy Daniels.

It’s government by chaos, but it’s an egotistical chaos that everything’s having to jump to, at least for the near-future.
