All is not well in Trumps White House as shut downs go on, and on. . . . .
Trump walks out of meeting;
Re the wall; do you think it might help Trump if instead of getting a recorded message from Gov phones shut down, they play Pink Floyds “Another Brick in the wall?”
I suspect that Trump as POTUS is bringing idiots out of the woodwork in Australia. We have always had a few right-wing extremists - now there seems to be a lot more. Our politics are changing. Last weekend we had neo-nazis fighting anti-racists on one of our beaches, with idiot politicians in attendance. We have a federal election due in a few months and some pollies are dog-whistling, but there seems to be a shift in what is normal.
You are dead right Al, just look at Brazil. The president got in with one policy that went ....”we are fed up of pandering to the minorities, either conform to the majority or get out of Brazil”
Neo-nazi groups resurgence in Europe
As for the UK - lose the election and call the shots! JC (not that one!) lost but thinks he is in charge, leave won the referendum but remain campaigners are in charge - new referendum, no exit from EU...
Definite shift in what is normal
The problem with Donald the "phart" is that he's a multi-millionaire business man with almost no political background. After becoming President, he was amazed to find that he was only in charge of 1/3rd of the government. He's also very stubborn when people who disagree with him don't knuckle under to his threats and bluster.
I agree that impeachment and Pence might be worse than waiting for him to lose the next general election. He may choose not to run or may die of apoplexy before then!
Is this genuine? If it is it deserves to be published EVERYWHERE
Unfortunately, a quick check shows it to be “fake news”
The Donald survives....again
Considering the sheer numbers of uninspected vehicles that easily cross the border every day, Trump's Wall would only exclude those too poor to catch a ride.
Last Saturday the US shutdown broke a record of being the longest yet surpassing the 1995/96 Clinton shutdown, so Trump is breaking records, Trump orders '300 burgers' to White House amid shutdown for White House banquet which he paid for out of his own pocket the US taxpayers will be delighted!
Didn’t realize the “super rich elite” would be interested in eating common man food .... oops, burgers prolly for the hired help , eh?
What happens if Mexico builds stairs? Maybe the can get the USA to pay for them.
The Donald is an inveterate garbage gut, wolfing down Micky Doodle, KFC and Taco Hell (his singular encounter with Hispanic culture).
Someone (the Trump camp?) published a fake quote by the qb of the Clemson football team, praising the Don and his culinary layout of crap upon the team's WH visit. The bullshit continues to flow, regardless of direction.
I saw a photo of Trump's apartment in Trump Tower. It reminded me of hamburgers - very tacky , like it's owner. It must be funny being an American these days. Even in Australia we have people who make me absolutely cringe. I feel sorry for his wife, even though she probably voluntarily married him. She looks as though she has a very well-defined role.
That's Vladimir Putin's stabbin' cabin when he's in NYC.
When I was in France in 2008, a tour guide had a go at me about voting in Australia being compulsory in a democracy. In Australia, every citizen must vote in elections or they will cop a fine. However we rarely ever conscript people for military service, nor do we shoot one in ten of our soldiers when they jack up. When our Australian soldiers go to war, it is usually to fight for democracy and they go voluntarily. It is probably the reason they are so effective in battle. Perhaps the reason you have Donald Trump as POTUS is because of the political disengagement of many American citizens ?
Trump lost the popular vote.
Electoral college and Republicans are to blame.
This could be timely --
The bearded dude is pretty astute. The problem is, just like in pre-WWII Germany, Trump's followers are being "Good little Americans" just like Hitler's backers remained "Good little Germans" well beyond the dawn of realization and the onset of buyer's remorse. Had he been elected by an actual majority of voters, I would be even more apprehensive.
