Donald Trump certainly made his presence felt when he visited the UK last week.
While he was humiliating Prime Minister Theresa May, thousands of people took to the streets in Scotland – including hundreds in Dundee – to protest against him.
There is a lot to dislike about the 45th president of the USA.
But, in the interests of fairness, it’s worth looking beyond his casual and calculated racism, the admission of sexual assault, the barbaric treatment of immigrant children and general disregard for human rights, his inability to condemn murderous neo-Nazis, the lying, the bullying, the desperate narcissism, the midnight Tweeting, the inability to wear a tie properly and consider Trump’s good points.
He did become president, despite many people not taking him seriously until it was too late, and does not suffer from self-doubt. He also gets on very well with Vladimir Putin and had a cameo in Home Alone II, which is not the worst Home Alone film in the series.
Apart from that, there is very little to recommend Mr Trump. Scotland, of course, has a long and complicated relationship with him that predates his presidency.
Former First Ministers Jack McConnell and Alex Salmond both fawned over Trump, hoping his golf development at Menie would bring in lots of oil-rich Americans to the north-east.
There was even a time when Alex Salmond felt he could ask Trump to back the decision to release Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi on compassionate grounds.
Those days, however, are long gone thanks to a windfarm off the coast of Menie and now Trump is persona non grata with the Scottish Government.
Newspaper reports this week suggested the feeling is mutual and that Trump “hates” Nicola Sturgeon, something which will cause her absolutely no loss of sleep.
But the truth is that Trump probably no more hates Nicola Sturgeon than he does the thousands of Scots who took the time to protest his arrival.
He simply does not care what his critics think.
Instead he will simply convince himself that they and the protesters are “losers” or that accounts of mass demonstrations are simply fake news.
Trump is not the first appalling world leader to visit the UK but he provokes more ire than anyone.
Protests will do nothing to alter the course of his presidency but they at least give people the opportunity to vent and, more importantly, remind politicians in this country of what is and isn’t acceptable in the UK.
