Almost two months into what is slated to be the most controversial American presidency since the Second World War, and pundits in the District of Columbia must already be running out of adjectives.
The fast-rising cliché concerning the literal or serious nature of Donald Trump’s campaign promises has been swiftly turned on its head since he was inaugurated on January 20, particular with an executive order temporarily barring travel to the United States from seven Muslim majority countries.
