Meet Donald Trump Jnr's girlfriend... *shudders*

What a wretched and hateful person.

Hillary would say deplorable and I’d agree with her.

With the slight difference that one is a narcissistic and self-serving psychopath without empathy or compassion... and one isn't.

But sure, lets pretend they are somehow the same as though we have an IQ of 43.
Hot take, I don't care who wins in November. As I've already written, I think both are idiots and would not vote for either! Simplifying it down to good guy verses bad orange guy is just crazy though. We've survived 4 years of Donald Trump as President, we can survive 4 more. I cannot see any good reason why one would vote for Joe Biden other than they hate Donald Trump, the man has spent near on half a century in politics and achieved virtually nothing of note.

Is that the goal of Americans now?

American exceptionalism indeed.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

From the BBC

https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/660/cp...d_table-nc.png

This shows Biden will take all the ‘battleground’ states that Hillary got and will flip Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Should this trend continue ... Bye Bye Mr.Trump.

(Tried to insert this as an image but it was much too big.)

That poll is more than a week old, i.e. before the Republican convention.

To be fair, he said “should this trend continue“ but you‘re also correct - we need to see if there is a post RNC bump and if so, how long it persists.

Donald Trump isn’t a racist, a sexist or a xenophobe.

At least, that was the message that was written between the lines on the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.

RNC treading a risky line, probably Trump's base do not want a milder Trump and on the other side it probably needs more to bring people from the centre to be Trump voters.

Meanwhile about Jerry Falwell Jr, the Trump supporter and Evangelical: Liberty University confirms resignation amid sex scandal. It is claimed he will get a $10 million payoff.

And the Republican Convention has two more days to go. As soon as I get my time machine back from the shop I’ll report again.

So far the GOP show looks like displaying the Trump dynasty to all and sundry. America doesn’t need an aristocracy.

It's also 77 days out from the election. Who knows, Biden could do a Reagan '84 by then. Or a Clinton '16. A week is a long time in politics, so 11 weeks must be an eternity.

No. A good thing the Dems don't believe in dynasties and would never consider a presidential candidate like Hillary ....

Nevermind the Republican convention, if US cities keep getting set on fire in the name of Progressivism and people keep getting bullied and browbeaten into giving the black power salute then those polls are going to continue to close*!

*Actually they won't, President Trump will just win in November

The Kennedy, Bush and Clinton families clearly meet the "aristocracy" criterion.

Americans obviously don't mind. Both sides.

And when did the Democratic party become socialists? In most civilised countries they still would be right of centre.

"Would" be.

I continue thinking how fast the old traditional definition of political left and right changes.
