That silent majority i mentioned back in September?

Despite all the influence of twitter, facebook, influencers and celebrities and media.. Anybody saying anything good about trump being called a racist, marches and riots..

He seems to be doing rather well.

Well, Americans in general aren't "the brightest crayons in the box." Ignorance is a way of life for many people in the US, and what they lack in intelligence they often try to compensate for with the size of their pickup trucks.

It's one of the reasons I was so happy to move away from there and why I will not be surprised if Trump wins a second term.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Did Kanye win yet? Bidden is clearly leading so why are you guys worried?

Imagine Bidden wins, and then says- "I am happy that I got elected to be the president of the greatest nation on planet Earth, Switzerland"

This whole thing is comedy gold! On one side is kitty grabbing comedian Trump, on the other side senile Bidden. Then super crazy supporters on both sides who are convinced about their moral superiority.

Yes, but that also includes Democrats choosing a mentally not fit for office candidate and acting as if he is perfectly fine in the head.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Trump is currently giving a live speech and is phrasing everything as though he's already won the election. He also said that everyone who didn't vote for him is trying to "disenfranchise" him.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Here we go. Trump claims victory and blames "them" for fraud.

"We already have won".

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Looks like it's 4 more years of Trump + a Republican senate + a 6 vs 3 majority in the supreme court. It was a landslide, indeed. For the republicans.

Biden currently has more electoral votes at this moment in time, but Trump is leading in the majority of the States that are still counting votes, so it looks like Trump is most likely going to win and will reach 270 electoral votes before Biden does (I can only hope that I will be proven wrong).

Well, you're clearly not aware of the fact that the right has desperately tried to accuse Biden of having dementia.

Biden has access to some of the best healthcare available. If he had dementia or was showing signs of it, it would have been diagnosed. I'm not even going to waste any more time on that conversation.

A Biden landslide was always unrealistic and only the dreamers thought this was going to happen. It will be a grinding war of attrition and Trump Biden will use every trick in the book to stay get in power. Nothing is certain.

One thing for sure is that if Trump get a second term then the Western world will become noticeably worse better for it.
FTFY!

Maybe you are right, I am no medical expert but this did not look good-

Criticising one's countrymen does not fall into racism category. Or does it?

I remember you also said something similar about flyover states.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Welcome to the dark ages, America. Watch abortion rights continue to become more restrictive and the poor become even poorer. The right wing will continue to add their people to the judicial system and equal rights will become more unequal. Great news for the rich and the stock market though.

The sh&t show continues...

Biden had just visited his dead son's grave. I assume that is why his son Beau was so heavily on his mind at the time. The fact is, when Biden makes a mistake or a "gaffe" as it's called, somehow it's considered dementia; but when Trump (or anyone else) does something similar, it isn't.

Oh, I see, you'll always find a way to defend an offensive statement from a fiend, but support the ban of someone elses offensive statement. Thank you for the clarification.
