There's also been a big increase  reports of racism and violence from those that supported Clinton. It's from both sides. You just have to see, read, and hear what they're saying about the millions of americans who voted for Trump, who weren't all white middle class, old people living in the backwoods of the crucial swing states. 

 

 

This is a good article about "labelling" people: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/25/left-wails-happily-indulges-post-truth-politics/

 

It's applicable both to Trump and Brexit - all too easy to make assumptions about people because of one issue.  But such generalisations are rarely accurate

 

 

 

 

just found "Designated Survivor" on NFlix and it shows a lot of the same issues... when under 'attack' (actual or percieved) people naturally look for an 'other' to blame... really sad that a whole nation can turn into racist fanatics at times like these, especially when 'other' can easily be their own citizens who just happen to look like those of the 'other' nation(s).

 

Arab or Mexican, justice demands that guilt is proven, not that every individual of a race or culture is equally guilty,

The whole process is being drawn out like a terribly boring episode of the apprentice. God help the planet after Jan 20th.

Someone suggested to me that the election and post-election process, particularly the Wall Street appointments, looks exactly like a classic scam.

There's a petition in NY to force Melanomia and the Brat to leave and go to the White House,  the security costs to protect the two of them in Trump Tower are claimed to be $1m/day.

Do you really need to use the terms, a serious illness should not be used in derogatory  terms.

It's possible that they may also be well educated, experienced and so on as well as rich....

What does that have to do with the extra cost of protecting them in an environment not suited for that?

 

Edit: Sorry, responding to wrong post.
