I haven't read the past seven pages (especially after seeing Cunty McCuntface try and slag me off - I couldn't be bothered to identify the point at which he got banned but oh well), so I apologise if I re-interate anything anyone has said (see - i can simultaneously spit venom and be polite at the same time - I've grown up in the years I've been adulting away from this board).
While I mightn't agree with Trump, it's entirely obvious why he got in when his opponent was basically Lady Establishment; LIttle Miss 1%. If the Democrats had had the odious reptile Rupert Murdoch running for president they would probably have done better (at least you can be safe in the knowledge Murdoch will die of his own accord within the next few years...barring any pact he might have with some dark god). What anglo-american politics of late has taught us all is that we're quite willing to cut our nose off to spite our face if it means that we think big business suffers. Particularly if there's no oppositon worth the name.
The divisiveness of democracy is quite striking, though. More so than the result has been the hatred the result has engendered. "All Brexiters are bigoted racists". "All Trump supporters hate women, Muslims and Mexicans. Um...no? Just because they didn't vote for a women doesn't mean they're misogynists - they didn't vote for Hillary Clinton. Other than having a uterus, let's look at her other defining traits:
She's a career politician.
She's whatever the female equivalent of a cuckold is (Lewinsky and her cigar, anyone?). While it -shouldn't- be relevant, it can easily be perceived as weakness.
She's deeply in bed with the money-holders and sees no reason to rock either the right or the wrong boats.
She's widely seen as corrupt.
Trump has never held any political office.
He grabs women by the pussy and shouts his way around problems - not exactly a positive trait, but definitely a different negative trait than HC.
He has enough money that he can't really be bought. Wealthy people acquire wealth like an exponential growth curve thanks to compound interest. The only way to buy him will be with power...but he's now the most powerful man in the world! What more power can you realistically give him?
I'm not saying Trump was the right choice. I'm saying HC was demonstrably the wrong choice.
As for Trump's premiership...well he's guided by the moon. But he IS trying to shove through everything he promised the people he would to get them to vote for him...so, -slightly- better than your average politician in that regard? I mean, he promised a travel ban. He promised to build a wall against Mexico. Whether you agree with those policies or not you have to credit him with actually fucking trying to get them through. I've yet to see a British politician do anything like what they say (Theresa May: "We will be the party of working people." Today's Budget: "increase taxation against the self-employed while reducing corporation tax...")
