    Delusional and Idiotic - Trump's return.

    Just when you thought the smell had left the room, the orange afterbirth returns with his usual fantasies and lies . . . how can so many people(and 'his' own party) still support him.

    Trump is a product of much frustration of Americans and their political system. Until politicians change their system to actually represent the people instead of financial influencers from big business to the NRA, there will always be a danger of a Trump like figure returning. IMO this will take a much more radical reform type President than there has been to date. Whether someone like Sanders could do it we'll never know. Americans appear not to be ready for such a radical reform agenda no matter how much it is needed. In any case it can only come from the Democrats. Republicanism with its roots in 1950s politics, is a dead man walking. Unfortunately it will take years for many of the people, still yearning for "the good old days" to realise they are gone and a new paridigm is needed to repair the rising inequality which is becoming a world beacon of corporate greed rather than equality of its' citizens.

    I wish the orange fuckhead would die. Trump was the worst ambassador for the dissident right. Its already too late. Dissident right politics in the US is wrecked for a generation.

    What he inspires is quite the opposite. As we saw on January sixth, his supporters are anything but patriots. False flag wavers who do not understand nor can comprehend the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.

    Samuel Johnsons' oft quoted "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel" does not refer to patriotism itself but to those people who disguise themselves in false patriotism and devalue the true meaning. Trump is a perfect example.

    He is. That time he molested the flag for instance.

    It's Performative Patriotism. People wrapping themselves in flags and symbols (literally and figuratively) for the purposes of manipulation and self-enrichment.

    And morons keep falling for it.
