    They keep spewing out pathetic videos on how bad Trump is, and patronise/insult all his supporters thinking it's "trendy" and that their political voice matters, but it has the adverse effect and encourages people to vote for Trump...

    Same goes for all these elitist celebrities like Katy Perry and Madonna. No one gives a **** what you have to say.

    I see more triggered trump supporters watching Buzzfeed and MTV and giving it attention than actual liberals.

      It most certainly does not have the adverse effect of encouraging people to vote for Trump.

      The only people it pushes towards Trump are the ones who are already brain-dead enough to support him in the first place. Outside of the right-wing echo chamber here on TSR and within your social circle, the vast majority of the population in the UK is very against Trump, as can be seen from any poll, despite their ingenious methods of manipulation.

      Encourages people to vote for Trump? Dude, the election already happened, and his approval ratings are dismal.

      'Brain-dead enough to support him in the first place'

        It's a tad worrying that a lot of people only voted for him to trigger SJWs and not because they actually think he's qualified/capable/has the right temperament etc. Is this what western democracy has come to?
        I've spoken to and read pieces from quite a lot of people that are very critical of trumps presidency so far but still support/supported him because they wanted to annoy 'liberals'.

        Voting not for the good of your own country but for political point scoring and that warm cozy feeling of smugness that lasts for like 5 minutes before you realise your country is now in a state of hysteria.

        Sigh if Corbyn ever becomes PM it'd be for the same reason too :sigh:

          I nearly repped you, but for your slight at Corbyn. :mad:

          I think a lot of people are fed up at the establishment, and wanted Trump to shake things up. Sometimes a bit of chaos is good in the short term.

          Err... the normal thing is that they get a "honey moon" period where they get good approval ratings.
