I do not think there is a person in the world who thinks that Donald Trump is any kind of moral icon. I don’t think there is anyone with a fully operational brain who looks ‘up’ to Donald Trump.
He is a crass, loud mouthed, common guy that many of us would not invite to our dinner table. He is a guy I would not allow near my children. His life is a toilet bowl of exploitation, tricks, lies, sexual predatory behaviour, and all other things which make him rather unsavoury.
Americans voted for him because that is what they want.
I have often referred to a movie called Idiocrasy which is a ‘fantasy’ about the world, 1000 years in the future. Obviously, the writers of the presentation were a bit too conservative as to time, thinking it would take 1000 years for the population to become as stupid as they are today.
To act as if the KGB would need to send a prostitute to Donald Trump, and that what happened in that room was worthy of being recorded and used as ‘leverage’ is ridiculous.
What Trump has articulated in regards to the relationship between the United States and Russia is more than common sense.
The ‘Great Game’ began in the 1800s among members of Queen Victoria’s family. It was the English Empire vs the Russian Empire; a family affair, considering the blood connections between the two Empires. It was a version of a sibling rivalry played in other countries with the lives of other people.
When Germany got involved, (another blood relative) the two turned against him. Then went back to fighting each other.
After World War II the United Kingdom was devastated, it was unable to continue the ‘Game’ so the United States took it’s gear and began to play against the Soviet Union, (the new name of Russia).
This Game went on through the years of the ‘Cold War’ and finally petered down to nothing during the 1990s; roughly one hundred years after it began.
It was reignited, for no real purpose, as there is not argument between America and Russia. The real threat is the Islamic Terrorism.
Why spend 1c fighting Russia when they are of no danger to the West?
If one wants to talk economic, the ‘enemy’ would be China which has been able to infiltrate most nations in the world with their cheap products. Yeah, the stuff might be cheap and some dangerous, but they fill the shelves from Kinshasa to Kingston, and American products are hard to find.
It isn’t just America which is suffering the ‘attack’ of the Chinese goods, it is also Japan. Stand on a road in Jamaica and count how many Chinese made motor cycles pass compared to Japanese. Less than one out of twenty motorcycles are Japanese, the majority are Chinese made.
Almost every electronic product is made in China. One can’t find American made goods easily. If America wants a ‘trade war’; go after China, because beyond expensive Caviare and Vodka, there are no Russian products.
For people to think that Russia would need to hack so as to effect the election is ridiculous. People Voted for Trump. Yeah, more Clinton, but the bias comes from the Electoral College, not Moscow. To think that a ‘sex tape’ involving Trump would be more than a yawn shows how pathetic America has become.
It isn’t useful to create a ‘Scandal’.
Americans have to understand that they are not the world, and that there are billions of people who look at the United States and it’s clown of a President, and don’t need any fuel for that fire.
For the next four years, unless a lightening bolt comes out of the sky and hits Donald Trump during his inauguration, he will be the President.
Those who don’t like it ought have voted for Hilary. As not enough did, they sat on their vote. And as it is said; ‘Speak now, or forever hold your peace’ … America ‘spoke’, Trump is there, and like those of us who thought it was a joke to elect the Class Clown as president of the class, it does not result in funny.
