Trump will go down in flames. My long held idea that supporting Trump was the best way to get Hillary Clinton elected is playing out beautifully.

Yes! The Times pulls through. Made my day. Thanks!

We're on different sides of this, but even I would not consider NYT unbiased.

You come across as a stereotypical Trump supporter- amused by guns, violence, and the spectacle of Hollywood and 'reality' show stars, and lacking in any real substance.

Accept that you can't spell.

I guess the United States and the UK will just have to continue to be two countries separated by appreciation of irony.

How would "except" (followed by a negative) work in that instance?

Instant = moment in time/ instance = case/situation, but ok. Potato, pot-ah-to etc etc. Correct away.


"Accept you can't spell" would be an imperative.


".... blablabla...., except you can't spell" more of a nit-picky snub in the "na na na na na" style of things.


Apropos of nothing, today is a pain in the arse.

Oi reckon you meant "in this case", but nice save...

Ah, I see, you meant that either would work in that (immediately preceding) instance. I thought you meant the other instance:

... where, as pilatus1 pointed out, only "Accept" works.

US election: Arrested Briton 'wanted to shoot Donald Trump'

Seeing as the man arrested is know to suffer from Asperger's Syndrome, will the sentence still be up to 10yrs? Is this the politics of hate reaping what it sows again? I really don't like this trend...

We're in no rush. Most of us are happy to wait four or five weeks for The Local to bring out its report.

Re: Will Trump be the next US President?

I am enjoying a Schadenfreude fest here. Trump is going down so far so fast and probably taking the GOP with him.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...-donald-trump/

More unbiased New York Times Reporting... Actually very sympathetic given how easy it would be to make fun of the officers on the bridge of the Trump Titanic.

No, I'm quite sure you were referring to me in a snarky and superior manner. Whatever. Irony.
