Biden is the 46th president, after what has been a rather tumultuous four years under Trump. It’s also a historic moment, Kamala Harris becomes the first female Vice President.

It’s always exciting to see a new president, no matter how much you agree/disagree with their politics.

I don’t support or agree with his politics, but it’s always good to see a new president.

It is quite bizarre how delighted many people are in UK at the election of Biden and how many people in the UK genuinely hate trump.

Most people in the UK are nowhere near as emotionally invested in the outcomes of say the Canadian or Australian elections (I am using these as example as most of their media is in English).

It is really not that bizarre. As the largest economy and largest military, American politics have a far greater impact on the globe than Canada.

And American politics has a sense of theatre and absurdity that most other countries lack.

UK genuinely hate trump.
Hatred towards Trump's rampant anti-intellectualism, gaslighting post-truth garbage, and reactionary politics is entirely justifiable. As we saw with the attack on the Capitol Building, it represented a threat to democracy.

Unfortunately Trump leaving office will probably not put a stop to the growing reactionary movements around the world.

Do you think if Trump had been caught out in Black face so many times that he couldn't actually put a figure on how many times it happened, he would have gotten away with it? ( Orange face not withstanding)

Hmmm probably.
It's also bizarre though how Biden has been characterised as such a bastian of light by the media.
Biden was a supporter of segregation in schools, given this was a long time ago and people's political opinions do evolve over time, however during his election campaign he was caught out making statements to the effect of 'if you're really black, you will vote for me'.

One could argue that this was just a gaf, ill thought out and doesn't really hold any meaning. However, if Biden did believe this, it says a lot, MalcolmX X once said that 'the white liberal is the worst enemy to America, and the worst enemy to the black man'.

I don't believe that Biden historically has a great track record on upholding LGBT rights either.

From an outside perspective the election looked more like a choice between bad and badder, rather than between the angel of the oppressed and the oppresser.

And the American people chose Biden, I definitely agree with you

Looking forward to four years of Biden bending himself over for the radical left.

Kamala as VP will almost certainly make that a reality, having to play to the younger more radical Dems. It can’t be the Republicans in the senate that hold him back because Kamala has the final vote so it’ll probably be fighting and squabbling amongst different factions of the Democrat party
