I wish Stuff, NZ Herald and other pseudo News sites would stop writing about it as if either of them are NZ presidential candidates.

 

 

 

 

The effect of either will have a dramatic effect on NZ and Australia.

 

Especially if Trump gets elected their will be immediate economic issues the we will have to deal with. I would hope they be short lived, but doubt if Trump is smart enough to act quick enough.

 

America is still the largest economy and the world will react immediately to whoever gets in. 

 

So, even though neither of them are NZ candidates they will have an large effect on us.

 

I believe that Bill Clinton was twice the President Obama is, and I foresee his wife being similar in style.

Or let nothing change and bring Hillary in. Its not that much of a risk..

 

 

 

 

I think Hillary wants a war with Russia, that could bring about a change, or two, worldwide.

 

 

Wars are over, they exist in unstable countries not first world countries. Comparing those two countries in the Cold War era is far, far more serious that it would ever get post election, its not even comparable.

Hysteria would occur, yes. Then when its clear, as it is right now, that the world wont be run unbridled by Trump, it becomes yesterdays news, IMHO. His antics are so overrated and little else gets talked about. He would become an elected President, thats about it, and we have seen how little real power they actually have. His gazillion advisers and the GOP will be running the show. If that all went belly up, I guess there is a way to oust him anyway.

I believe CNN will be running the debate at 1 pm. Is anyone going to watch it? For those without Sky, CNN live is not normally available on-line though I have seen a dodgy live stream site in the past that carried it for awhile. Al Jazeera is on Freeview, but I don't know if they would stream the debate. Not sure about BBC news either, though they can be accessed on-line with a geo-unblocker. I don't know what other possibilities there are. Maybe ABC or CBC (Canada) or another country.

 

Edit: I just saw on the RNZ site that they will also be showing the debate, but they say at 2 pm so I may have got that wrong.

I watched something on Sky last night about just how much power the president has when it comes to the strategic nuclear issues. President doesnt have to consult with anyone before he/she pushes the button and it is his/her absolute decision. The Generals can voice an opinion either way, but the President decides. One would assume that the American people wouldnt vote in an idiot......

Oh my, that male presenter just referred to Trump as NY's most infamous resident (unless I misheard) but this is the Wishwashington Post.

I apologise if this has already been posted. 5:16 is pretty funny.

Not sure I can be bothered to watch it live. The 'news' will be talking about it non stop for 24 hours afterwards so I am sure I will get the salient points!

Ask Obama how his law passing has been going.  

 

Re nuclear, that's movie talk these days, but I am sure you are right about the red button.

No doubt. The liberal press really do have their panties in a wad (to use an Americanism) over the prospect of a POTUS from outside the Establishment, that is for sure. They make out he is in fact Damien from the Omen!
