Well, the election showed me how much I didn't know about the USA in 2016.
Trump certainly struck a chord and the 97% that Hilary got in DC really demonstrated the discontent of the people with the Beltway Elite.
Good luck to the USA and to Trump. Both may need it.
Well - us too. Like "Brexit" only a few cynical minds (like mine) saw this coming. The power of the press. The "news" stations have been raking in the money as they turn the US into the biggest reality TV show in the world. (One of the NY times editors pointed out that in the past year, the 3 major news networks put a total of 32 minutes into coverage of issues - with 0 min for climate change. All news has revolved around invented topics - usually half truths or lies.
And we'll believe anything that comes from the TV. You do NOT want to know how many Americans think Trump and H. Clinton are the same person....
Meanwhile, we'll keep our helmets on and maintain our anonymity as much as possible.... I gotta go ride.
As Italian we already had Berlusconi, so I can't comment!
And we spent 20 years to be free of him!
Good on him
Well done Donald
Let us pray...
Tell me you are joking.
Living in California, I sure didn't see that coming. Of course our news media only took one side when reporting or commenting on the election. I heard that last night there were riots in Oakland and along 19th Avenue in San Francisco as unhappy Hillary "supporters" went out on the streets, started marching in "protest" and breaking windows, damaging vehicles and building bonfires in the street. More organized protest "marches" are scheduled for later today - watch your TV news channels for the latest updates and protester interviews as they egg on the protesters toward more violence to up their viewer ratings.
The vote for Hillary in the SF Bar Area was about 70% to 30% for Trump, yet many people apparently want to damage their own neighborhoods as a form of protest against people who live in other states that voted for Trump. I really don't get it. I have a feeling that, like the old Chinese proverb goes, we will be living in interesting times for the next four years. I can hardly wait for the next election cycle to begin.
No,I honestly think he's a breath of fresh air and should be given a fair chance. After all the people have spoken
exactly what the Berlusconi's electorate said after his win
Unfortunately, after some years actually even they are convinced it has been a disaster for italy.
anyway time will tell
Ah dear old Silvio,a man after my own heart
we are very proud to have had Berlusconi ... more o less like Black Death
I'm in total shock, though I suppose I shouldn't be.
The least desirable job in the world right now?
The guy who will have to hand Trump the nuclear launch codes...
This is what Michael Moore wrote a few months ago about what has just happened.
Long article, but quite interesting.
Well if you think a blatantly lying, racist, sexist and plain ignorant and abusive man is a 'breath of fresh air' then maybe you should move to the US?
We probably wouldn't see eye to eye on most things I guess. But I'd already gathered that. The people may have spoken but the German people spoke for Hitler (don't go telling me you think he was a breath of fresh air too).
That Michael Moore link was very interesting. Thank you.
reading this article, It seems to come back of twenty years ago, when Berlusconi was elected.
same reasons, same dynamics
Just my opinion Peter,every one is free to have one ........ I'm suprised someone in The States hasn't already mounted a legal challenge because they don't like the result
I was thinking more along the lines of Bunga Bunga parties
I respect that you are entitled to an opinion. Very much so. I think it's very wrong all the same. Talking Brexit. The legal challenge was correct because TM and the Government were breaking the laws of our constitution. As simple as that. It wasn't politics or pro/anti EU it was simply law.
Not just a case of sour grapes? Anyways that's another topic for another day.
We won't always see eye to eye on politics but it's always good to have some healthy debate.
