Looks like Anonymous are not having faith in the collective IQ of America and have taken it upon themselves to free America from Trump by exposing his "deceits and lies". Will it work?

The Chinese Government Is Now Using Donald Trump As Proof That Democracy Doesn’t Work

EDITORIAL : China’s state-owned Global Times:

"Trump's mischief has overthrown a lot of conventional norms of US political life. His remarks are abusively racist and extremist, which has left an impression on the US public that he is intentionally overthrowing political correctness."

"Trump's rise was not anticipated by most analysts and observers. At the beginning of the election, Trump, a rich, narcissist and inflammatory candidate, was only treated as an underdog."

"His job was basically to act as a clown to attract more voters' attention to the GOP. However, knocking down most other promising candidates, the clown is now the biggest dark horse."

It's a pretty good editorial. Score one for the Chinese.

Love the irony... the Chinese Government is hardly an expert on any kind of working political system.

I disagree.

 

 

 

Despite being a huge population over a huge area, and ranging from peasants to full blown capitalist citizens. I think they have done rather well in maintaining a stable political 

 

system. They are a very young first world country, so aside from the 1980's reforms, they have held it together very well. It makes any US election seem far from robust, let alone the ability to do stuff. (Obama vs Senate for example)

democracy as we know it is generally a farce, it's a 3, 4 or 5 year token gesture.

Just discovered this gem - it's old news (09 Jan 2016) but is still relevant:

 

Trump says ‘maniac’ dictator Kim Jong-Un deserves ‘credit’ for wiping out his rivals including his uncle who he ordered to be executed

(includes videos of the speech)

 

”He goes in, he takes over, he’s the boss. It’s incredible,” Trump said in Iowa.

"You’ve got to give him credit. How many young guys — he was like 26 or 25 when his father died — take over these tough generals, and all of a sudden — you know, it’s pretty amazing when you think of it. How does he do that?”

I can see what he means, but possibly not the best example.

Kim Jong-Un, bit of an anti-hero. I heard the reason he had his uncle executed was because the uncle fell asleep during a meeting. Talk about work stress!

Definitely, Trump should have chosen someone else to illustrate his point. It's very easy to motivate and influence people when there is a gun pointed at their head (and possibly the heads of their family members too).

CNN alert just recieved shows they expect Trumop to win Florida. Based on a short article I read the other day, this is getting close to ending the Republican race?

 

Of all the people he heas alienated, do we add those who heavily dislike PRNK given that he has given some form of cred to Kim Jong Un?

 

And how will the votes in primaries translate to votes in the election? Not I spose. It comes down to how many Republican voters dont vote as its him.

Reminds me of a hat I once saw. "I'm the boss. You don't have to agree with me straight away, but it saves time if you do!"
