    So everyone that votes Ukip is a twat and a BNP style racist, everyone that voted for Trump is similar so let's just ignore them and what they say and simply dismiss their fears and concerns as the thoughts of narrow minded twats. Yep that will work......look where that got us.
    Correct. Why would anyone care that millions of people voted that way. What do they know? Really, how many of them come on here to be enlightened? 😂😈

    I dare say the folk who voted for Trump are mostly folk who see themselves as disaffected voters and buy into his anti 'political' establishment rhetoric ...... What worries me is how many of them will buy into his frenzied attack on the US media. Its one thing to attack reporting and press articles if you can back up that attack with hard evidence and prove that what was reported is either at best inaccurate, at worst a downright lie.

    But Trump is not doing that, he has immediately launched an offensive against the whole of the media and is trying to establish a climate in the USA where nothing they say will be accepted as the truth by his supporters, no matter how truthful it is. The spat over how big the crowd was at his inauguration being a case in point ...... there is a raft of evidence to show that his turn out was considerably smaller than Obama's and given the circumstances, IE .. that Obama was America's first black president, there should be no surprise or embarrassment for Trump attached to that. But instead of shrugging his shoulders and giving it a 'so what' he has tried to say that the press and TV have for some reason lied about that ... it was astonishing watching his press aid nearly having an aneurism as he ranted at and harangued the open mouthed White House press corps.

    A man with an ego that can be so easily bruised and who is trying to turn everybody against the last bastion available to 'the people' when all else fails ...... a free press .... cant be good for democracy. How long before he is able to deflect criticism or the genuine uncovering of incompetence or nefarious goings on just by tweeting ..... 'fake news' .... and what's his next move after that, new laws to gag the press and media by the back door, journalists being arrested for breaking his 'fake news' legislation?

    He is very clever though I'll give him that. Its easy to rant on about the career politicians in the "Washington swamp" and exaggerate the state they have made of the current US economy and of course blame them for the economic failings of the past decade or so ..... what people seem to forget and something Trump and his ilk love to see forgotten or ignored is that yes politicians were to blame, but only in so much as they failed to curb the excesses of people just like him whose unfettered and unchecked greed was the real reason the worlds economy went tits up.

    Its really hard to understand why people who vote for the likes of Trump and Farage in the UK with their so called populist politics seem utterly blind to the fact that far from being the solution to the problem they were the folk who caused it in the first place ..... No doubt some folk will benefit from Trump being president, but if you ask me a hell of a lot more than that wont.

    The Americans love to boast that in their country 'anybody can make it if they work hard enough or have talent' ..... but I've always thought that the downside and unspoken opposite of that is an attitude that bubbles under the surface of 'if you cant make it and are unable to work hard enough or just plain unlucky then hell mend you' ........ The likes of Trump and the people he is surrounding himself with will I fear ramp that up 100% and the 'land of the free' inhabited by the ill educated, unwell, disabled and disadvantaged will be a bloody miserable place to exist.

    Indeed, let's keep putting fingers in ears and go la la la la la and watch as the likes of Brexit and Trump happen.

    Maybe if the people were listened to instead of being passed off as narrow minded twats as some on here have called them we would not be on this situation.

    For me the crux of the problem is the silent voters those who won't say which way they are voting for fear of being labelled a bigot racist or any other name. Why not have a reasoned and fair debate instead of name calling. Some of the videos being shown by the anti trump protests better belief. There is one of a trump supporter getting her hair set on for by anti trump surely that negates all the protests they are doing. There is also one of protesters shouting about how it is a police state and duck the police but yet call for someone to be arrested who dares to stand up to them you couldn't make it up

    I wonder what a typical Ukip supporter might say -

    'Immigrants out'

    'No Blacks No Dogs No Irish allowed'

    'Hang them high'

    'Rule Brittania'

    Sieg Heil'

    'Kill the lefties'

    etcetera etcetera.

    Of course not. I was being flippant but Ukip is undoubtedly full of undesirable BNP type elements and there's also no doubt in my mind the brexit vote was won by a huge bunch of extreme right wing little englanders exploiting fears of immigration and stoking up undeserved resentment towards the EU.

    Glory Glory

    I suppose, but when does a huge bunch become a valid number? The way things are at the moment it seems the bunch is getting bigger.

    A free press? You think the press is free whilst the bulk of it is owned by a few powerful corporations?

    media-brainwash.jpg

    On the positive side.

    There might be a number of countries in the the world that will be happy if Trump tries to put America first and leaves them alone.

    The definition of a free press is a press that can say what it wants unfettered by government interference no matter the subject matter ...... Who owns it and their input into its political stance is a different matter, as we all know the right wing press dominates the landscape in the UK because most of the papers are owned by right wing publishers and no doubt the press in the US works the same way with the political outlook of whoever owns it bye and large determining its editorial policy.

    None of that prevents anybody with the money or the will to do it setting up a newspaper or other media outlet that can set out the opposite political viewpoint ....... the founding of the 'The National' in Scotland as a direct response to the overwhelming siding of the main papers with the unionist side being a classic example.

    When governments start painting all of the news media as liars and 'fake news' pedlars and telling people that the only thing that can be believed is what they say and their spouting of 'alternative truths' on twitter .... that's when they start making inroads into the freedom of the press.

    * On January 24th, 2017, the USDA was ordered to stop communicating with the public through social media or the press and to stop publishing any papers or research. All communication with the press would also have to be authorized and vetted by the White House.
    * On January 24th, 2017, HR7, a bill that would prohibit federal funding not only to abortion service providers, but to any insurance coverage, including Medicaid, that provides abortion coverage, went to the floor of the House for a vote.
    * On January 24th, 2017, Director of the Department of Health and Human Service nominee Tom Price characterized federal guidelines on transgender equality as “absurd.”
    * On January 24th, 2017, DT ordered the resumption of construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline, while the North Dakota state congress considers a bill that would legalize hitting and killing protestors with cars if they are on roadways.
    * On January 24th, 2017, it was discovered that police officers had used confiscated cell phones to search the emails and messages of the 230 demonstrators now facing felony riot charges for protesting on January 20th, including lawyers and journalists whose email accounts contain privileged information of clients and sources.
    And most recently: the wall and a ban on Muslims entering from a large number of countries and the end to accepting Syrian refugees.


    A busy man.

    That's frightening.

    It must be easy to follow through on electoral promises when you actually do no give a single **** about the world around you. Trumps ego, thin skin and inpulsiveness make him a very, very dangerous man.

    I see he's reneged on his promise to release his tax returns once the audit was complete. He now says they will never see the light of day.

    And he's STILL pushing the lie, with no evidence at all, that millions voted illegally, and is now promising an investigation. He isn't playing with a full deck.

    Brilliant post LOL

    Sums it up perfectly.

    Keep waiting for May to crumble at one of her stage managed soundbite sessions and admit she hasn't a clue and can we all be very nice to her instead of asking important difficult questions about brexit as they UK will be up keech creek without a paddlle.

    On January 25th he fired the entire Senior Management team from the State Department. Well, they resigned en-masse but resign is code for "you're fired" at that level.
