    When The Donald parades his family out on stage at his victory party we get one of those moments when a child tells us the truth. The look on young Barron's face tells us all we need to know of what The Donald and the rest of his family are thinking. "My God, what the **** have we done !?. We have to run the ******* country now! The rest of the clan are smiling and laughing but young Barron just looks on in horror and clearly does not want to be there.

    I couldn't find a video shot of the Trump family parading out at their victory party, but in the vein of "From the mouths of babes and sucklings, young Barron tells us what is really going on in The Donald's head.

    God help us!

    There was a clip on Facebook of his teenage daughter positively recoiling when he touched her but I can't find the link now.

    How do you know what a kid was thinking in the middle of the night? A narrative framed to reflect your own views.

    I thought Trump looked shell-shocked and his body language was submissive. The same thoughts occurred to me! He definitely gave the impression as you aptly put it,

    One commentator likened him to the stupid noisy dog who chases cars up and down the main street of the town, then one day catches one and doesn't know what to do next.

    The name Boris springs to mind in this context too.

    He looks to me as though he just needs some sleep - and, like most 10 year-olds, doesn't like having to wear a suit and tie, or be paraded on stage by his parents.

    ..and now faces moving home and entering his teens under the world media's spotlight, surrounded by Secret Service men and with a largely absentee father. Small wonder he looked underwhelmed.

    "This story has been updated to reflect the ambiguity of the encounter. An earlier version of this story said Tiffany Trump avoided her father’s kiss. Upon further review, it appears Trump may have been reaching out to shake someone else’s hand."
