Why is it that the British seem to like this kind of crap so much?

Every culture has it's own brand of crap. There is no why, it just is.

The only difference between Trump and someone like Obama is one speaks nice and does slightly less shitty things... emphasis on "slightly".

There is a hard lesson here for Americans, but Trump, in the long run, might be good for American politics... politicians are slick, lying scumbags... all of them who say nice things while sticking the shiv in American taxpayers. Trump just didn't get the memo on how to effectively hide all the shitty things a politician does. Obama put the left to sleep, Trump is waking them up.

I've come to learn that the left and the Democrats in charge, Pelosi, Shumer, et al, are two different things who probably don't even have the same agenda but want to arrive at the same location by the path of most resistance or through apathy.

Because the US is a big joke to most Brits. They can't believe the nonsense going on.

Not so much crap - I found it an enjoyable read. The Brits have always enjoyed amusing stories, and there's nothing more amusing at the moment than the circus that is Trump.

And yet many of them don't seem to think that all their princes, dukes, "royal blood" horse manure is a big joke. :lol:

Go figya.

Wait! Wait! I gotta mention.

Marge and I saw a bunch of people standing around waiting for a changing of the guard in Copenhagen.

Is there anything more boring in this whole wide world than a changing of the guard? Not to me, there isn't.

So it's only the British who like military shows? Is your beloved Donald Trump British? :lol:

Yup. Some think it's a joke, some think it's a crime, some think it's a good thing.
