They say that there is a silver lining to every cloud, and so it may be with Donald Trump.

Our country is having a long overdue look in the mirror and we have seen some ugly blemishes. Systemic racism is a nasty scar that can’t be covered up no matter how hard we try, and we really haven’t tried all that hard. It’s not just the racists; it’s also good people who have long ignored the problem because it didn’t affect them.

Hey frankie, about time you thanked Trump because rioting and looting never happened under any other president. Oh I'm sorry I forgot happened under the great uniter Barack Hussein Obama who did so much to heal the racial divide. My bad....


Still obsessed with Obama I see.


Hey N/A. Have you ever wondered why the British don’t like Trump. Well, wonder no more. This from a British writer:

“A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed. So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever. I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman. But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.”


Hey frankie, the brits and the queen and you can have a sucker. That's how much that means....
