In a country the size of the US, there must be plenty of people half his age who’d make a suitable president, and if not, why not? Is having truckloads of money the only thing that makes you eligible?

Why is Trump the darling of evangelical Christians when he is not exactly a man of principle?

  

In the United States of the mid-2020s, you need to be a multi-millionaire/billionaire to fund your campaigns. It’s also too late to really change the Democratic nominee to a young someone who is willing to invest their billions into the incredible fame they’d have to build up against Biden. That being said, Biden is too stubborn to even consider stepping down, he’s in it until he dies (which I believe will happen within the next 2-3 years). 

 

Trump is popular because of a false sense of superiority he instilled on most of America. Just like Hitler or Stalin (although Trump is too stupid and constitutionally barred to be one) he uses propaganda and lies. Biden sees through those- get drunk for every sip you take for calling Trump a liar at that Debate. 

We will see the inevitable return… #Trump2024

Don’t see Biden winning. He’s a complete liability and the ‘At least he’s not Trump’ reason for getting the vote won’t work this time.

In the UK we finally got rid of the corrupt Conservatives last week; Labour getting the “At least it’s not the Conservatives’ vote as I’m not sure anyone knew what they planned to actually do.

It’s a shame that people vote based on the person, not the administration. I worry about things like abortion rights getting further stripped back if the Republicans get back in over there.

In terms of the UK, I have been pleasantly surprised at the Labour cabinet already. A housing minister who has lived in social housing, a chancellor who studied Economics and worked at the Bank of England. The right people in the right roles, rather that handing the roles to friends or whoever is left supporting you in your party. I’m hopeful we should get a few years of steady politics without all the infighting, but we shall see.

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

smh

Jenna Howell, an FBI employee who works in the NICS firearms background check unit, posted her disappointment that Donald Trump survived an assassination attempt.

Jenna has a Top Secret clearance.

Why would she post that? Surely it risks her job.

Tulsi Gabbard’s cogent observation about the general ongoing climate for years may have a clue to explain that agent’s chutzpah:

The assassination attempt on President Trump is a logical consequence of repeatedly comparing him to Adolf Hitler. After all, if Trump truly was another Hitler, wouldn’t it be their moral duty to assassinate him?

Now today I find, you have changed your mind
