Yes; he has given us some laughs, and has provided plenty of material for stand up comedians and satirical organisations such as Newsthump.

If you listen to Steve Wright in the afternoon (BBC R2) you may also enjoy his Trump impersonations.

And it was 24C here on Sunday when the average high for this time of year is 11C.

Apparently he made 57 false claims last week.

Obviously, as heat rises it's hotter up there, that would explain it ...

And from all quarters he's copping lots of flack - Hilary was interviewed on our ABC TV re. her new book, she came across well in scathing attacks against him.

Of course, obvious now you say it.

But as water flows downhill how do you explain the higher water levels in the Great Lakes? Surely the water should have run down to you?
