    That was interesting, he is clever in that he knows his market and is going for it and he doesn’t care. Which is scary.

      He has admitted to owning a copy of Hitler’s speeches. It was the sequel to Mein Kampf. Mein Kampf talks about making your lies as big as possible and should be targeted at stupid people. It’s *really* scary.

      1. Dόn Pídgéόní

        I find it more scary that people think he should be in charge. He is scared of a journalist for god’s sake because she was “mean” to him, hiding away like a petulant child.

        Good luck America if he ever makes it is all I can say.

          Be careful NOT to underestimate Trump, be careful NOT to overestimate the American voter.

          I’m only glad they have finally stopped referring to the US President as ‘Leader of the Western (or even Free) World’ as it implies s/he is some sort of global dictator. Their country, not mine.

        2. MoyestWithExcitement

          I’m not at all surprised by this. If I may indulge in a little smug, I was calling it months and months ago. He kept saying crazy and offensive stuff but his ratings kept going up. He has marketed himself beautifully. People are feeling more and more disconnected from the political process here, in the States and in the UK. He has presented himself as an anti politician. He’s a man of the people, this billionaire. He’s going to come along, show these Washington elites how to get things done and people are eating it up because they feel they finally have someone they can relate to. If Clinton, the archetypal politician, wins the D nomination, I wouldn’t bet against us referring to him as President Trump next year.

          1. Dόn Pídgéόní

            I know right? America has a real problem with Hillary. Too lippy innit. And Bernie, too poncy. Trump might just make it, I don’t any of the others are really in it. Though Trump’s not pro-life enough which might swing it. Depends how big of an issue immigration remains.

          2. MoyestWithExcitement

            Bernie, poncy? We must have different understandings of that word. I think he’s got a better chance of beating Trump than Clinton. She is the perfect opponent for Trump’s anti politician strategy. Plus, she is *hated* *with a passion* by the Republican elite. They also hate Trump but they’d never vote for Clinton. I think a lot of them would actually vote for Sanders ahead of Trump though. He has raised nearly the same amount of money as her as well without any corporate sponsorship. His money comes from individual donations. That implies he has sheet loads of support. More than the American news media will talk about. I seriously think it could be him who wins it in November.

          3. Dόn Pídgéόní

            Yup. Bernie is too progressive to take votes from Trump. “Poncy” may not be the right word but thats what I mean. I don’t know much about him tbh, most of the coverage is about Clinton, but he seems good.

            Thing is, American elections take FOREVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, so we will still be discussing this in about 4 years time. ….

      2. ReproBertie

        Why is it scary? If what you’re saying is true then the stuff he’s saying to get him elected is actually just a clever marketing ploy and nothing like his actual beliefs or ideas.

        In other Hitler news the first episode of the new season of the X -Files was titled My Struggle.

          1. ReproBertie

            Yes, I’ve seen it. It was on RTÉ2 the other night. They’re showing the series on Tuesdays. The first episode was a bit of a mess and Mulder seems to have become a parody of himself. Thankfully the second episode (shown on Wednesday) was better.

          2. Kieran NYC

            Agreed, Repro.

            And the 3rd episode could be a bit of a classic… Delira to have X-Files back on TV! Spooky like it’s 1995!

        1. MoyestWithExcitement

          Hopefully it’s a marketing ploy and he doesn’t believe what he says. Or he really is a crazy megalomaniac. Dictators tend to have personality disorders. It’s not like it’s a mad idea that he might believe it. The German media made light of Hitler in the run up to his election as well.

  3. Pablo

    Great video. It’s scary that he’s gone from complete outsider to clear second favourite to Clinton

    1. Shayna

      It’s only the Caucus Stage – he needs majority Republican votes before he’s in the running for POTUS.

  4. Shayna

    @ReproBertie – Ta for that, Duchovny was a self-parody in Californication, hated his daughter in the show. (thought I’d share that).

    People calling Trump are his two pints man. All politicians have these little tropes. Hilary will beat trump with about 10 points to spare.

    Trump has divided the GOP and has all but killed their chances of the presidency.Their man is Jeb and Jeb looks toasted. Cruz the second placed candidate is despised universally within the party, outside the party within his family and outside his family. The floating vote will not go to Trump because he is scary. His supporters are very noisy and very visible but they are a minority. The Christian right don’t fully trust him and he has had to buy off Jerry Falwell’s young fella for support. His bible game is as weak as a Meek Mill diss.

    The big threat to Hilary is Bloomberg. If Bloomberg runs as a 3rd party candidate he’ll split the democrat vote because he is a darling of centre left and centre right but he’ll affect Hilary more than say, Trump or Cruz or Rubio.

    Bloomberg would be an outstanding candidate but he should have picked a side. He should have ran against Hilary. Hell, Jeb should have gone back to the Bush political roots and rejoined the democrats and ran against Hilary.

    1. Shayna

      Trump didn’t turn up for the tv debate in Des Moines because he’d fallen out with the host(ess) – he instead attended a thing about US veterans a few miles down the road. A spoilt child is often invited to stand outside the door in the cold. He’s not a runner, period!

      1. Continuity Jay-Z

        His stunt completely detracted from the debate though. He is far from an inconsequence. Even the debaters had to acknowledge his non-presence. In the general election He’ll get whopped but he is having and will continue to have a large say in the identity of the Republican nominee.

        I’ll tell you how big a disruption he is, you had Megyn Kelly and Michael Moore acting like best buddies on Fox News a few nights back. That is the effect Trump is having on America.

        1. Shayna

          Yes, that’s true, Continuity, I saw how his absence was acknowledged, as, “The elephant, not standing in the room”. Given that Fox News had the coverage and Trump and Murdoch are buddies, it all appears to be a tad incongruous. I’m not sure if this whole Trump thing is a testing ground for ‘The Tea Party’. Present a ludicrously right-wing white guy to the American public, see how they react – offer a toned-down version for office?

          1. Continuity Jay-Z

            Trump and Murdoch may be buddies by the key Fox player is Roger Ailes who’d have a somewhat more frosty relationship with Trump. Ailes’ blonde haired girl is literally Megyn Kelly, when Trump went after her that was an affront to Ailes also. Murdoch in this case would be largely a periphal figure. Yeas the owner of Newscorp but Ailes is the King of his own FNC castle.

            Trump would not really be a darling of the Tea Party; that is Cruz’s bailiwick. Trump is the Disruptor-In-Chief and his following is an incongruous hodge-podge of a disaffected, p!ssed off Middle America. There is no map on a Trump supporter bar the fact that race plays a very large part. The shared DNA amongst Trump supporters is race. Trump is a white man’s candidate. This is what is killing the GOP. Trump cannot and will not win the hearts and minds of the non-white American voter. He activates his voter base against them and the GOP have loosed a monster that has started off his rampage by feasting on his masters. He began by devouring Fox. Fox are now being portrayed as having shifted to a centrist stance and have incurred the wrath of their previous loyal acolytes.

            The GOP are in a lose lose situation. Cruz is hated, Rubio is mistrusted. Kasich is a non-entity, Bush (as Trump constantly states) is ‘Low energy’ Paul is a crank, Carson retired from brain surgery by mounting his own brain on a pedestal somewhere. Fiorna, Santorum, Huckerbee et al – Non entities.

            The interesting point that seems to be neglected in all the Trump narrative is the name of the guy who convinced him to run for President. May I present one William Jefferson Clinton. It may be Bill Clinton’s greatest political stroke yet!

    2. Deluded

      Excellent, Continuity, certainly fills out the picture of what’s going on.
      My friends girlfriend reckons Trump would be awful for America and that they deserve him ; )

    3. inPisces

      This is dreadful dung. Trump song will change if he gets the GOP nomination, in the primaries because only the wing nuts have any interest in them early doors, a successful candidate has to take the most extreme positions initially because the first few votes take place in Nowheresville states. Once the white Heat moves back from the remote Midwest the Beltway consensus takes over. It’s like in our elections when you see oh Donegal was the only county voting against a referendum but it makes no difference to the final outcome.

  6. Shayna

    Wow, Continuity, you’ve painted quite the tableau. I was in Philadephia 2 elections ago, it was the Caucus stage, as it is now. H. Clinton was in the running, only to be defeated by B. Obama. The US presidential campaign is long and expensive. Who’d want to be the leader of the free world – I wouldn’t, would you, Continuity? I posted this earlier, but it seems appropriate ….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EuGsu_Y0YA
