The Biden Presidency

Did anyone see the BBC news report just now with the Trump supporter?

Looks like they trawled the whole of the US to find the most slack jawed, cousin ******* yokel they could to show a “typical” Trump supporter.

They even managed to squeeze in some footage of him blowing shit up in his yard and shouting “yee haw!”

Epic.
I will tell my cousin to tone it done, the fecking show off.
 
Not at all bad for a senile broken old man as claimed by some. How well that translates to actions remains to be seen.

I listened to most of the speech and thought that about it too. You'd think given the amount of times I've read some posters on this forum stating he's senile, bumbling and trips over words, he did well and gave an eloquent speech. Just one or two slips, but many others would too.

He apparently worked hard at overcoming his stutter early in life and I didn't detect any of that in this speach. Some commentators I've heard feel that him overcoming the stutter and the manner of dealing with the deaths in his family (and I guess many wouldn't agree with this) shows perseverance and strength of character.

But we'll see how this pans out now he's president.
 
He is in the hot seat because in a very short space of time America will have it's first black female president. Who wouldn't get in on a straight vote.
Which was the plan all along. Socialism via the back door. The US is f*****.

Saw it...

Over 74m Americans voted for Trump and apparently, (BBC inference) they are all trailer dwelling, assault rifle waving rednecks.

But they are though aren’t they?

My perception of America is as follows:

New York - Italian gangsters, pizza and Wall Street.
Boston - Everyone thinks they’re Irish.
Detroit - Used to make cars, now a third world country.
Washington - The White House and stuff.
Florida - Wealthy Jews, cocaine and Latinos.
Massive bit in the middle - 74 million trailer dwelling, assault rifle wielding rednecks.
New Orleans - Black people, flooding and jazz.
Nevada - Gambling, drugs and hookers.
California - Hollywood, gays, black and Latino gangsters.

That’s pretty much it.

You can add geeks to California, silicon valley and all that

May have been.
Socialism as understood outside the USA is a non-starter in the States. The mildest form of European left-wing legislation can bring howls from the Right. Socialism isn't really understood in the US.

Secondly why is socialism a bad idea anyway? Your comment seems very knee-jerk and throw-away.

BTW I don't have any particular hue as far as politics are concerned.

He could do with a decent haircut.

To Americans, the British Conservative party is socialist.

And another bod becomes Pres, AND Commander in Chief without having served. I wonder if they ever feel embarrassed when they have to send the young lads off to war. :cool:

As embarrassed as most Western political leaders since the 1970s: Callaghan in the UK, Bush Snr in the USA, Gorton in Australia, Pearson in Canada as the last with military service.

Given that Biden's son Beau served a year in Iraq, I'd say he's much closer to the gravity of sending troops into harm's way than most of his contemporaries.

When you put it like that I almost feel a need to apologise to Aunty for doubting the accuracy of their news reporting.

Sounds familiar. All those in the 52% bracket in 2016 were racist Little Englanders as well.

Don't know much about the guy, but the present infatuation with him by the BBC and ITV is beginning to grate. They will be telling us next that he can walk on water!
