Title: Trump
Post by: Myky D on June 12, 2018, 04:20:15 am
This is so weird. Trump is absolutely classless - he's a Jerry Springer participant and audience member. His tantrum at the G7 was only inches from his strutting about with his hand making an 'L' shape calling Troudeau "Loser! Loser!".

He is the clown to distract us while the grown-up fascists behind him steadily dismantle the government and build a dictatorship.

And yet - and yet - if he pulls off this North Korea thing, he'll be hailed as A Good Thing.

Fucking hell. Tails, dogs, lunatics, asylums.

Dictatorship sits well with his chum in NK and Russia

New world order...

I must confess, I'm beginning to quite like Trump. He's like a box of chocolates .... you never know what yer gonna get.

He's resisted the urge to vilify Russia, and now this with NK. I've always had a soft spot for evil tyrants, and Trump seems determined to bring them in from the cold, bless 'im. Mind you, if I was Kim I wouldn't be briefing a sigh of relief just yet. Gadaffi went from being a zero to a hero under Bush and Blair's regimes (when he gave up WMD), only to become public enemy number one again under those of Cameron and Obama.

Of course he's resisted vilifying Russia - he's funded by them.

And Trump can't do much with NK - China would kick off if he did, and then Russia, bish bash bosh M.A.D.

But dictators are cool - I like it when they order the mass slaughter of their own citizens, because I'm a genuine misanthrope.

I'm not quite sure what he's pulled off with this NK thing.  As far as I can tell, the only thing he's done is agree to two long standing demands they've had:

- face to face with the US president
- stop war games on Korean peninsula

Yay?

He's no Bill Richardson.

We all know that Trump is the only one to ever get NK to release prisoners.

...but one was half dead...so, only partial points for that one.


Good to see you, amigo.

He's making hay out of the PR, though.

Is he? I don’t know anyone outside of his base that takes him seriously here.

I read about the students that were locked up cos they accessed a hidden floor that the NK used to spy on guests.

They are not uncommon, there is one in the hotel the frau is currently refurbing.

I guess these days they are just security rooms..
