Anyone watch this last night, 9pm, BBC2?

Fascinating.

Plenty of ex staff happy to dish the dirt.

Thought it was riveting. Had doubts in case it was an an American production (find the US documentary style ......difficult] but, no, it was a BBC effort. Very much looking forward to the next two parts.

I did I came to the conclusion he was initially uncomfortable but when he gained confidence there was no stopping him. He was used to running his own empire running the country is another thing.
Whether he is right or wrong good or bad people will always stab you in the back. He is egoistical the programme gives him attention negative or not people like that thrive on attention.

I found it highly entertaining.

He has got away with so much in the last four years, probably because he gets other people to do his bidding, mainly lying, so easily. The media will have a field day if he loses, he has been so appalling to them for just trying to do their jobs. His female communications person saying the lie about his inauguration having the biggest audience ever was an ‘alternative fact’ was jaw-dropping. I have watched part two and part three looks very good because it covers his handling of the Covid pandemic.

What is this!? When was it on?

DiscoDancer1975 it was on BBC2 on Thursday evening and the two other episodes will be on subsequent Thursdays. There are 3 episodes, the first two are on the BBC iPlayer. If you don’t live in the UK though you won’t be able to watch it. My friend in Minnesota would love to watch it but all BBC programmes are blocked in the USA.

I had actually forgotten how chaotic the first period was.
