    But he is a piece of ****...his business model is to create business in order to rip people off, take the money out, let it go bankrupt for tax purposes. He is a narcissistic sociopath. He got voted for because a) a lot of people are just like that and b) he said a plethora of things, each specifically targeted at a certain group of people and if these things clash then they are talked down like say his misogyny or making fun of a disabled person.

    As far as campaigning goes, his populism is as good at Goebbels' was, but that doesn't change the fact he is a piece of ****.
    That's your opinion, I personal,y think he's great. I thought Obama was a piece of ****

    Great comment.

    I am sure there is some morality in which your opinion is "correct", but that is not one most people will objectively see as a good morality.

    I have no doubts he'll be authoritarian, but I suspect the alt-right will be sidelined and only used insofar as Trump has a use for them. Trump isn't a true believer and never has been - it's just his path to power and attention. As has been pointed out (apologies, it's a subscription site, but I do actually know the author, so I feel obliged to credit his idea) Trump's rise in many ways parallels that of Milosevic. The nationalist populism is all just a tool to win power, to be disposed of as soon as it becomes unhelpful.

    Trump's more extreme proposals will be quietly retired (we're already seeing that with some, like the wall) or switched for something essentially different, but which Trump's PR team will maintain is just some minor changes. The only exceptions will be those where he moves too fast early on and paints himself too far into a corner (his policy on Israel is looking a bit this way, as Friedman will likely be confirmed as ambassador). A substantial chunk of his supporters won't care, of course. As with nationalism in general, people aren't attracted to Trump by any particular policy, but by the more generalised "feel" or worldview he's implying. And some are much more interested in feeling edgy and thinking that Trump is "triggering" people by saying things than they are about the things he's saying actually being enacted - it's just the idea they like.




    Yup. As another poster (think it was nulli tertius, but not 100% sure) pointed out on a past thread, Trump hasn't yet made the intellectual jump from being a candidate to being President (because it's his only schtick). When you're a candidate and have no power, the choice of when you give media appearances and press conferences, and who you give them to, is a tactical choice and nothing more than that. When you're president and have very real power, you are are expected to show a certain level of transparency and accountability. Trump and his core supporters still act like he's a candidate, and are most likely never going to process that Trump now is "The Man", to put it simply.
    Despite a failure to see the significance of anything that just occurred in U.S. politics and being an awful judge of people, you do make one point worth repeating. I agree with you about Trumps appeal coming from his outlook on the world as much as from the individual policies, 2 of which he has signed 7 executive orders which insure their completion. But it is his general way of looking at things that got him elected. This is where he displayed true political genius. He knew this but the problem is how do you stand out in a field of 17 candidates. In Trumps case it was easy ; just be yourself. This explains why don't see that change in Trump the candidate to Trump the President. He knew we were sick of standard politicians

    I think "piece of #### " best describes obama because he was ashamed of his country, married a woman who said in an interview she hated the flag. He was nothing more than a 60's radical who fell through the cracks and got elected.

    Not surprising. Anyone who doesn't acknowledge his overwhelming unpopularity probably believes in his 'alternative facts' nonsense.

    I guess I didn't make my self clear. I DO acknowledge his unpopularity and it's the source of that unpopularity which offers confirmation that America made the right choice.It's from the far left. The weeping and gnashing of teeth can still be heard. They wander the streets of Hollywood covered in ash and sackcloth seeking solace in a new cause. They shout lamentations to their God but he can't hear them. He's in Palm Beach.

    No, it's not. It's decent human beings appalled at the monstrosity that is Trump. Do you think the majority of the country is really far left? Only 40% approval rate, is 60% really "far left"? Oh dear you old con, you are getting tired.

    It's Bill Clinton. :lol:

    Didn't you know Hillary's husband Bill was president from 1993-2001? (and an excellent president too)
    You mean the rapist that should've been (and almost was) impeached?
