Everything about Trump feels like watching a car crash
Yes indeed, but if the car is the USA who will have the ability to fix the nation which is so divided and dysfunctional at its highest level?
It's not Trump, in fact he can be viewed as a symptom of what is ailing the US.
The " city on a shining hill" is starting to look like a shit can.
The US political system needs some serious attention however I don't see how these will be addressed in a satisfactory manner. I hope that the post Trump America takes a good long soul searching look at itself.
I fear that it's teetering on the edge of a very dark fall.
or however the hell you're meant to spell it
Nah, we’ve been through this before:
Yeah I know it was just the perfection of the anagram that iced my cake.
A gold star for you and you can take the dusters out at the end of the lesson to bang them clean.
I hereby propose that Trump/Drumph is officially President Cnut from here on in.
He can sit on his throne of shit like the pathetic creature he truly is.
America, whither goest thou? shiny car ekcetra
Shit..,., that inside track just killed me.
Up there with all that eighties goodness the Hulamen ,Low Profile and Beat Rhythm Fashion. Good times at the Gluepot and hearing loss which I probably don't regret as much as I should.
cheers for that Russell.
Why o why did they not put a cycle/walk underpass on the track at St Lukes Rd?
The one at Te Atatu is great and saves time and hassle.
There must be an alternative to the Carrington Rd dismount which is just a pain especially for people using clip-ons. It just breaks the natural flow of cycling.
I just hope Trump et al become a laughing stock and do no lasting damage
Me too brother, me too.
What will be his first fuck up/scandal, other than his election?
Are we as a country capable of having an adult conversation about drugs, their harms and all the other nuance in regard of them.
Not just pot but A class to alcohol.
Even more so can our politicians?
A referendum perhaps as guidance would need to be held and the issues involved have to be looked at rationally with the merits of various forms of control acknowledged.
Trump is a Democrat plant intent on stealing the election from the Republicans.
I can't buy that idea.
Trump entered the field of his own volition with a turbo-charged version of the message that the Repubs have been priming their base with..
He got lucky with that but now things have gotten real and he's been found out.
He is a creature that the Republicans brought into being with their racist and evangelical dog whistling and have only themselves to blame for what has been a hostile takeover by an outsider.
I seem to recall an analysis of America by some Russian think tank or other that suggested that the US had a good chance of having a civil war.
Is Trump's delegitimising of the electoral process what they had in mind?
Ironic really with the well known propensity of the republicans to engage in wholesale gerrymandering and deregistration of voters.
If the great orange buffoon genuinely believes the system is rigged and he loses the election, then what next?
Great mobs of armed people wandering around while he plans his insurrection from a garish Trumpbunker?
Where this man is going leads to some very dark and dangerous places.
Americas' Grifter in Chief has a large following primed by years of relentless rightwing propaganda via Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, various Evangelical hypocrites and a chorus of nutjob hucksters.
Is there an emollient voice of reason among his circus trying to lower the temperature of his rhetoric or has the Trump train already jumped the rails.
Right now it looks like our American cousins are heading towards a crisis in the political system.
I hope not and after Winston Churchill's dictum they do the right thing after trying everything else and also update their system of governance to something more fit for the 21ST century.
Hillary Clinton and all US politicians are going to need to work hard to right the ship of state after this madness.
Good luck with that!
