This is perfect for an irate grandad in the corner.

You visit your grandparents, and your grandma is rolling her eyes at your grandfather whilst she makes a flan you have loved since forever, and you pop into the sitting room and say 'hello grandpa!' and he says 'that Paris cathedral is on fire! They should use planes!' and you say 'oh, that's a shame' and go and tell grandma about your new job.

Except he's President of the USA.

I was going to post a technical rebuttal of "Flying water tankers".

No, I think pitying silence is the best that deserves.

I cannot put into words the hatred and contempt I feel for the Wotsit Hitler right now, but my (moderated) thoughts are; what was that about remaining silent or confirming your stupidity?

The BBC have said that the French fire brigade are worried that it may not be able to be controlled.

And I hope that I have not snipped this out of context.

What it is all about is a fundamental lack of respect for nations and people who you consider to be inferior. This is the broad brushstroke that gives the lie, lays bare the absolute narcissism, to any notion of Atlantic Bridges or Special Relationships.

You're better off seeking enduring agreement with a cat.

. It is in some ways a good thing Trump won
Obviously Central American migrants escaping from their respective hells are inclined to disagree.

I suppose Brexit was a good thing for Syrians trying to escape the Syrian Civil War by your logic.
I'm pretty sure if Clinton had been elected she wouldn't be caging the children of migrants or threaten to dump them in Sanctuary cities or nominating a rapist as a supreme court justice or lied repeatedly or pulled out of Paris or a hundred more awful, shitty things Trump has done.
Lol why wouldn't she? She's pretty fucking racist and was happy to be in Obama's cabinet whilst he was droning the middle east. Even here, a clear open goal against Trump and all she can muster is "uhh, maybe you should have QR codes tattooed onto families so they can be kept together better in the concentration camps?".

They are so fucking terrified of socialism it's unreal. "Hold the centre ground" lost them the last election and she's determined to just drive straight down that unwinnable line again. Nobody's voting for fascist-lite when the full fat version is on offer.

Having being hopelessly fucking wrong about British politics it's nice to see Dr Nick show that he is consistent.
The dems are utterly fucked if they keep this centrist line up, and Trump will wipe the floor with whatever empty suit they put up.

I assume we're all following along with the fun? :)

I think even in redacted form, there's *so* much here that the GOP and Fox will start peeling off to avoid going down with him, so they can start the rehab work and form up behind some other asshole who just so happens not to be Trump.

Whilst waiting for a live meltdown and the men in suits forcibly escorting him offstage, I'm concerned about what Wotsit Hitler or his fuckwit followers might do to deflect attention. Not much fun being a black Muslim congresswoman at the moment.
