Do you think nothing has changed over the past 4 years?
No. The situation only became unmissable!
If anything good could come from the last four years then it is the Americans realizing it and start actively sorting it. Only getting an other president and lean back won't do the trick.

Former president D.Trump acts like a spoilt brat deprived of his favourite toy. Let it go - even Melani tells him to accept the loss. Soon she will divorce him anyway once those shenanigans are over. Itís really getting silly.

Strange actually that not many people mention Melania. I can't imagine that there is someone looking forward to leaving the White House more than her.

Hmmmm. I think the ethics in the military is to primarily protect US, at least those I know. Foreign policy and the military itself are two different things. Quite often not in....harmony.
Military ethics is to figure out how the enemy can die for their country with the least casualties.

Rumours have been swirling for years that they are getting divorced the moment he leaves the WH. She renegotiated her prenuptial agreement prior to agreeing to move to Washington, operating from a position of strength.

Melanie’s modeling past aside. Let bygones be bygones. She really had a tough role of being a First Lady and never actually agreeing with her husband’s shenanigans and rightly so. I can only imagine, that’s a mega tough position of being a spotlight not only for paparazzis but the whole of the US’s public.

In short, Trump didn't start any wars.
Not the original assertion. I just showed you that Trump continued several wars.

Who knows, in the future he may also be held responsible for starting American Civil War II.

So Bush, Romney, Murkowski. That's it? That's what's left of the GOP? The others are part of an authoritarian cult, even after The Emperor That Wears No Clothes was fired?

None of the results are official and certified yet. Other Rs might be waiting for the official numbers to avoid Trump's ire.

Actually, things have changed over the past 4 years. The same tired cynicism, however, is still rife.

something amazing has changed for millions of women in the USA, and over the world, and especially for some - and it is wonderful to see.

Well, most First Ladies use that role to try to do something to help improve the country -- some sort of cause to advocate for (e.g. Michelle Obama worked as an advocate for poverty awareness, education, nutrition, etc.). That's something that Melania never really did and never really put much effort into. She did try to claim to be an advocate against online bullying but of course that is rather disgustingly ironic considering the fact that her own husband is a bully and is notorious for using his Twitter account as a bullying device. Melania also once claimed, in an interview, to be the most bullied person in the world.

I'm sorry, but I don't really have any respect for her at all. I think she is an example of what young women and girls should strive NOT to be.

Unlike the long list of world leaders who have congratulated Biden. The Slovenian prime minister, Janez Jansa, foolishly congratulated Trump when he declared victory and has been quiet since; you are really scraping the bottom of the barrel for excuses.

That's pretty much fact free, and rather insulting.
The riots since Floyd's death provide ample evidence.

Evidence of peaceful protests.

About 93% of racial justice protests in the US have been peaceful according to a report produced by the US Crisis Project, a joint effort by the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) and the Bridging Divides Initiative (BDI) at Princeton University, which collects and analyzes real-time data on demonstrations and political violence in the US.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Genuine question, why does Melania go out with a guy 24 years older than her? Why did Kamala Harris date a guy 31 years older than her?
Daddy issues? Power hunger issues?

The difference is that it gave Harris the job she wanted and Melania the job she hates.

As far as I read it, Kamala Harris and her husband are the same age. He's just one week older. Not that it ought to be relevant for her professional life.
