Jeff's brown-nosing comments underneath are the best.

Totally. It has got to the stage where I can't be sure who he is working for / trolling with those comments though!

Trump's tweet from the G20 summit

Quote:
Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 3 hours ago

Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!
LOL, this DNC server must be top of Merkel's chat list

John Podesta has sent a multi tweet reply!

In short
1. I never worked for the DNC so could not refuse to give the DNC server.
2. You are a whack job!

“President Trump said that he had heard the clear statements from President Putin about this [Russian US election interference] being untrue, that the Russian leadership did not interfere in the election, and that he accepts these statements.”

So that is OK then, now we can all forget about this topic

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A blistering take down of Trump by Chris Uhlmann, the political editor of the government-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation. It has astonished many American political commentators on Twitter, who were perhaps in denial at just how bad things had gotten.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

There was a time when world leaders were queuing up to shake hands and be photographed next to the American President, but now he is politely ignored or at best tolerated like someone else's hyperactive toddler. His words no longer have any meaning or gravitas and unless you're prepared to lay down billions in military and construction deals, he couldn't care less about you or your regional problems.

What is interesting to me are the parallels between him and Theresa May, when she ambles around EU summits looking awkward and alone, or belting out another of her vacuous Brexit speeches about deep and special relationships to bored looking Europeans.

And then not be arsed turning up for a major meeting and send his daughter instead. I've heard of 'take your kids to work' days, but not 'send your kids to work instead of you' days.

Bad luck America!

"pressed fast-forward on the decline of the United States"

What an idiotic statement. Guess the ABC are about as impartial as the BBC.

So by your reckoning, anything that isn't touched by the Hand of Doom (Murdoch), is incapable of being impartial? Hmmm...whatever!

You really haven't been paying attention have you? or you're just trolling. If so it's very poor trolling, like someone who keeps saying the earth is flat; after a while you just start nodding and saying 'aye right son'.

State broadcasters should offer balanced opinion. Not one sided monologues. At least you have the choice to read the Sun or not.

Opinions aren't balanced, neither are they fact. Except in the US, it seems.
