Neo-Nazis hail Trump

Well, not much surprise there. I doubt Trump has enough ideology in him to be a Nazi himself, his only ideal is his self-glorification, but he’s chosen the Nazis and white supremacists to get it. Shithole that he is.

Neo-Nazis say Donald Trump’s ‘shithole countries’ comments show he thinks like them

Image result for trump

It’s not that Trump has actual thoughts, more base impulses. I doubt he can read let alone think. And there is little doubt there is no more hated person on the planet. Even Theresa May, vile though she is, stands head and shoulders above Trump.

No American president has been this despised across the globe. Reagan had is critics, but gee, he was a nice guy, and his dementia wasn’t diagnosed properly till after his last term. Bush the younger, the chimp, was not respected as he was a bit of a twit and got America (and Britain through the malicious Tony Blair) involved in needless wars, but even he stands well above Trump.

Trump is just a destructive egomaniac. Not a single positive quality. An avid conspiracy theorist, he makes up his own realty as he goes. The sooner he is ejected from office, the better. America is tainted by him.

Black Republicans deserting Trump

Gee…. I wonder why??? The phrase “black Republican” may be turning into an oxymoron.

Former Republican party chairman says Trump’s ‘shithole’ comments prove he’s racist

[asterisks removed]

Michael Steele, who served as the first black chairman of the Republican National Committee, said on MSNBC that enough is enough, and that Mr Trump’s comments prove the point.

“At this point, the evidence is incontrovertible, it’s right there,” Mr Steele said when asked about Mr Trump’s reported comments.

True. There isn’t any other way of looking at it. Trump is as racist as his base. That’s why they love him. And if the Republican party won’t throw this trash out in the dumpster it belongs, they will own it. Oh, wait… they already do!

Republicans are the party of racism, homophobia and misogyny. They stand for the white racist male fascist.

One person thankful Trump is dominating the news is Theresa May

Well, it distracts attention from her own incompetence. Of course, having Boris Johnson mouth off about how important it is to keep Trump sweet probably doesn’t help.

She wouldn’t comment on Trump’s refusal to visit Britain without a guarantee of pomp, circumstance and a right royal handshake, and freedom from protests. Even Oor Theresa can’t promise that any more.

Cooper Anderson of CNN nails the fake president

Well, a real president once elected, becomes president for all Americans, or tries to. Not Trump. Who didn’t even win a popular majority.

Anderson Cooper leads CNN criticism of Donald Trump’s ‘shithole countries’ comments

Asterisks removed in headline – if the BBC can publish the word “shithole”, so can The Independent. He said, accurately describing Trump as racist:

“For the President to believe that Haitians have not contributed extraordinary things to American society, that is ignorant. For him to claim that all the countries of Africa are ‘shitholes’ is woefully ignorant.

“Perhaps the White House feels the President’s remarks will be well received in some parts of this country, among some parts of the President’s base. But it doesn’t make what he said any less ignorant or any less racist. Not racial. Not racially charged. Racist.”

Fellow CNN host Don Lemon also attacked Mr Trump over his “disgusting” remarks, declaring: “The President of the United States is racist. A lot of us already knew that.”

Perhaps Trump is playing to his fascist and racist base, the ones who think the sun shines out of Trump’s own shithole. But he hasn’t impressed anyone else with this. This is a flailing and failing presidency, a disaster without precedent in US history.

Trump is an immoral vacuum, without a decent bone in his corpulent body. Aside from his base, who likes him? I’m not even sure his family do.

The Boris defends The Donald

Well, isn’t that a surprise. Birds of a feather, I should think.

Trump UK visit: Boris Johnson rages at Corbyn and Khan for ‘endangering US investment in Britain’

Good grief. If Boris thinks he can trust Donald to promote US investment in the UK without some backhander, he’s even stupider than I thought he was. And he’s siding with the most unpopular President in US polling history? What a wanker our Boris is.

What Corbyn and Khan did was encourage demonstrations against Trump should he be ill-advised enough to visit Britain. After Trump’s recent racist remarks, I should think the entire world, besides Boris, Theresa, and Trump’s base, is against the man.

Trump is self-destructing publicly. He’s an untrustworthy liar. Any agreement with him he would probably use to wipe his shithole. You cannot negotiate or deal with a president of this reputation. The best you can do is hope he gets removed from office.

Trump… where to begin?

Donald Trump ‘repeatedly’ referred to ‘s***hole countries’ in White House meeting says Democrat Senator Dick Durbin

Trump is tweeting frantically to deny it, but he is a known liar. The man has no integrity, but evidently some of his staff do. Some…

US ambassador to Panama resigns because he can ‘no longer work for Trump’

Where are all the other resignations we should reasonably expect? The man is as unfit for the office he holds as a decaying turnip. Why is anyone still working for him, and why have his vice-president and cabinet not invoked the 25th Amendment to remove the twerp from office? Maybe they share his racist, homophobic and misogynistic views? Is that possible? Bloody well is.

At least the toad with the dead yellow weasel on his head has cancelled his UK visit to open the new American embassy in London, while stupidly blaming Obama for Bush’s decision to move it. Thank heavens for small mercies. Theresa May has said the invitation for a state visit stands, so we can be hopeful that won’t happen either.

What’s going on among the more rabid Brexiteers?

Brexit: Leave campaign chief backs second EU referendum, saying it is ‘the only option’

Arron Banks, the co-founder of the Leave.EU campaign, has backed Nigel Farage’s suggestion that there should be a second referendum on Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.

The businessman accused Theresa May’s government of “backsliding” on the issue and said the UK must “act radically now” or it would “sleepwalk into a faux Brexit”.

“The only option now is to go back to the polls and let the people shout from the rooftops their support of a true Brexit,” Mr Banks added.

His comments come after former Ukip leader Mr Farage suggested a second vote would put an end to “whinging and whining” by Remain supporters and “kill” the debate for a generation.

Huh?

Both Farage and Banks are apparently entertaining the supposition that a second referendum would be even more dramatically agin the EU than the first ill-advised one, where leave won a slender majority. The problem is, polls are suggesting that opinion is shifting away from Brexit now that the reality of the consequences is setting in. Perhaps they think a second blockbuster and mendacious campaign can poison the atmosphere against Europe, that they can energise the xenophobic fascists on the UK hard right to vote in even vaster droves.

I wouldn’t bet my boots they are right.

On the one hand, what would a second referendum accomplish? The first referendum was a sorry mistake. It should never have taken place because decisions like this shouldn’t be made by what is basically a large opinion poll about what people think on the day. Ours is supposed to be a parliamentary democracy, where members of parliament debate, consider, then decide, and they answer to their constituents at the next election. Referendums ought to be either written out of the UK constitution entirely, or require supermajorities to pass, making sure that the decision to change something is one a lot of people can agree on. Is the first poor political choice reversible by a second poor one?

On the other hand, one could argue that as politicians left it in the hands of the polls to make this decision, they should be given a second chance to confirm it. I am not really convinced of this. I’d prefer an election over the issue, force the parties to take a clear stance.

Suppose a second referendum were to vote narrowly to stay in the EU. What would this actually resolve? Sweet Fanny Adams. Would the Tory clown car immediately reverse course? Would May – finally – resign and put us out of her misery? Or would it just introduce more chaos and indecision? This is the problem with referendums. They are a politician’s way out when they are too afraid or powerless to make a decision. It’s what happens when a prime minister feels weak.

Which brings us to the “strong and stable” leadership of Theresa May. She has stated firmly that there will be no second referendum. Given her track record and weakness as a leader, I’d say the odds against one just dropped dramatically.

 

Trump is a troll, the sort who might appear in a Tolkien story

Trump wants Republicans to take over Russia investigation because ‘the world is laughing at America’

“The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes,” Mr Trump tweeted. “Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. Republicans should finally take control!”

The US president is such a dumbass he hasn’t the self-awareness to realise the world is actually laughing at him. It may snigger occasionally at an American electorate that elected such a boob in the first place, but it does remember that Trump lost the popular vote.  He scraped in on electoral college coattails.

Trump has to be the most ignorant and pretentious twit ever to get elected to that office. He may be fooling himself and his devoted base – and it doesn’t get baser – but he has the lowest approval ratings in polling history.

Can they remove Trump from office?

Discussion of 25th Amendment to remove President ‘alive every day in the White House’, author of expose says

White House flunkies like press secretary Sarah “Huckabee” Sanders deny it, of course. She’s paid to lie for Trump.

Mr Trump also defended himself on Sunday, tweeting: “I’ve had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President. Now I have to put up with a Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author. Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well. So will I!”

Reagan was eventually diagnosed with Alzheimer’s before he popped his clogs a few years after his last term. Trump is so unaware of reality, that point seems to have escaped his masterly intellect, such as it is.
