Good documentary on 4 now. What a mentalist. The definition of arrogant. Imagine the banter* if he was President?

If he gets the nomination he's winning. 100%. There's talk of Bloomberg joining late as an independent and that will split up the democratic vote. It will be laugh a fucking minute, the Republican Party will desentegrats (which has been happening for 10 years).

Give him 4 years I say. Much rather have him than Cruz the wee fuckimg weasle. Hillary is past her best and Sanders reminds me of Uncle Albert from Only fools.

I like Sanders but the socialist tag seems to be the kiss of death in teh US

Anyhoo.. there's already a 'bespoke' thread about presidential candidates, molo

You reckon he could do it mm?

he'll get the Republican nomination but not the Presidency. he can't do no wrong.
even pulling out of the debate tonight cements his status to his supporters.

Him not doing a Murdoch/Ayles Fox News debate right on eve of first causus is risky. They are king makers and he telling them to fuck off. Only another billionaire has the balls to do that. He's ahead of polls by male margin in Iowa anyway so he would probably do more damage showing up than not showing up, but in long term he's fucked with the fox vote. He got more exposure not doing debate also.

no real shocker there, ordinary Americans are absolute fucking fools for that sort of get rich quick shit going by the sheer amount of adverts on local tv for those type of seminars, courses etc.. i used to love watching them when over in the states/canada and was bemused no end by the sheer lunacy on offer and how anyone could possibly fall for it

It's actually admired by people of trumps ilk. Your value is how much $$$ you have in your bank account nothing else matters

Think its time he got his own thread, now he's the president and all.

He's not going to completely repeal Obamacare now. Anyone think that maybe it was all a big troll and he won't be as bad as we think.

When i was watching the scenes on election night all the guys looked like they were in it for the troll... There was no way the could have bought his shit... how funny would it be if he trolled the trolls

Wonder will he stand down. I still think he never intended to actually run for president.

Seen a video at some speech of Obamas when he was president from years ago ripping the bag out of trump in front of everyone and trump just sitting in the audience not happy at all. He probably just ran for president to prove all the people taking the piss out of him that he can do what he wants. It all seems a bit of a joke and he is easy to make fun off on tv and comedies but he clearly isn't a stupid man, even tho he seems to play on that a good bit.

Listened to this weasel last night talk about how amazing trump is on the late late show. Completely infuriating listening to her, even though some of her points were valid.

0 |

I read somewhere that the original idea of Trump to run was really just to boost his profile, breathe some new life in the American Apprentice TV show (which was dropping ratings) and also create a couple of new TV opportunities for him. He's 70 now, a billionaire with all he could want, you'd think he'd want to just enjoy his life and do things which werent too taxing... he's now going to be dealing with stuff he's never had any experience or real interest in (or I'm sure he'd have got into politics earlier), he'll be far, far busier and probably more stressed than he's ever been in his life. I reckon he never, ever thought it would go anywhere near this far.

Spot on Takk. Its like a spoof film or something

0 |

He's a reality TV star. His life is one big show. No way did he think he'd be running the country. Heart attack in next four years

1 |

I think he'll pick one or two of his polices he truly understands. Corporation tax and the whole issue of repatriation of corporate profits. The rest he'll leave to his advisors who seem to be a bunch of evangelical old white men.

It won't end well.

Let's just hope nothing blows up with Russia over Syria. Or internal civil strife. You just worry he would be very reactionary and not take a considered approach

0 |

Takki. Absolutely spot on.

I think its kind of funny, RP, that people may have voted trump because Clinton was a hawkish warmonger...

now they've helped put in power the party that repeated stated they want to bomb the shit out of Isil and were pushing Obama for a greater military presence in both Syria and Ukraine

Trump wants to spend most of his time in Trump tower. He's doing a George Bush. Stay out of the way of congress and delegate to chief of staff and Vice President. Same old shit.

Is that Muppet actually considering putting the absolute spastic Dr "I believe the Pyramids where built by biblical Joseph as a grain store" Carson as secretary of education!?!? How can that be, how can Americans be so fucking dumb

1 |

That's true Pav.

Completely horrendous candidates set before the American people. I would have probably not voted. Just couldn't do it. Forced hand probably Trump, but fuck me. Donald fuckin Trump?! I can still not believe that he even got the nomination. But then you look down the list of the other candidates he was up against like Carson and Cruz and you just wonder what is actually going on here.

Constantly being reminded of Adam Curtis' recent documentaries and the idea that reality is whatever you say it is. The facts don't actually matter. Trump says climate change is a Chinese conspiracy? It may as well be. No evidence needed. Pyramids were a grain store? Re write the text books. It doesn't matter anyway.

You have voted for Trump before Clinton, RP?

0 |

You would have voted for someone who was going to set the world on fire via his fondness for big coal and rejection of climate science?
Someone who is going to further entrench the corporate capture of US politics with his supreme court nomination?
Someone who wants to unpick the meagre regulatory reforms the democrats put in place after the the financial crisis?

At the very worst Clinton would have been business as usual with some incremental reforms... Trump at the very best is a huge step in the wrong direction

The guys running brietbart now have access to the machinery and the credibility of the White House to lend weight to their fantasy land propaganda

Farage is the first UK 'politician' to meet with Trump.

Forced hand yeah Trump.

Clinton is everything I despise about politics. But like I said, I would not have voted or went for the other two parties. Can't believe Bernie Sanders was deemed too radical but still Trump is President. Donald what the absolute fuck Trump.

Clinton should never show her face again

How can you post that and then say if you hand was forced that is what you'd vote for?

1 |

Sorry RP, I'm really trying to get my head around it... given both candidates are shit... if your hand was forced what would achieve by voting trump?

Apart from sticking one to Clinton?
