    He is losing it but it’s scarier that people don’t care.

  2. bisted

    …great cover Time…like a dystopian creation by Antony Burgess meets The Simpsons…reminds me of the Enda one…

  3. MoyestWithExcitement

    Accurate. I don’t agree with the idea he’s consciously trying to tank his campaign. He’s just a lunatic. A lunatic born into wealth can get quite far in life.

    He’s a plonker an out and out plonker…. Good sense will prevail this twat will not become president…. I have to believe that!!!

    1. petey

      quite true. when he attacked the khans i was amazed and delighted (for political-calculation reasons, mind). then i was nervous when he went to detroit monday to make his big “re-set” serious-candidate speech, but that same day senator collins and the 50 GOP policy wonks announced that they won’t support him, which thoroughly drowned out whatever he said. i would be unshocked to learn that that was deliberately timed. he even took the bait and tried to slag them the next day.

      but …. but … he has a rabid base and there are the party die-hards and i want to see him lose before i’ll relax.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        yep and you have to wonder whether that “rabid base” will raise it’s head again.

        hard to believe it will just go away.

    I can only imagine the comments if an English news source published something similar about Corbyn.

    1. Nigel

      Is it that you think Corby and Trump or equivalent? Or are you just enjoying thinking about the different responses that would be generated if it was a depiction of different people? If it was Clinton, or Bono, or Putin, or JK Rowling or Brad Pitt, because dong it to different people would provoke different responses is a rather elementary idea? Or are you supposedly sniffing for some sort of hypocrisy?

      1. MoyestWithExcitement

        It’s simple. Anyone with leftie-liberal opinions or simply has a bad opinion on anything that right wingers like is a big smelly hypocrite.

    2. rotide

      They are equivalent in so much as neither are very good leaders and the press constantly report on this fact.

      If that was a picture of corbyn, the usual suspects would be outraged and Dr Jules would have 5 pieces written on media bias.

      1. Nigel

        ‘Neither are very good leaders’ is so vastly grey and fuzzy it leaves out an ocean of detail that’d fill the Atlantic. Otherwise ‘you oppose a thing therefore you’re not defending it, you supporting a thing therefore you are defending it’ is becoming a pretty tedious excuse for insight.

    Here is a scary thought.

    A lot of people, especially Americans, don’t want to vote for a loser. Even in Ireland some regretted voting FG when they seen how well FF done. Policies and principles are being replaced by popularity so it actually doesn’t matter what Trump does or says as long as he grabs the headlines and is perceived as being the winner.

    In which case, he will actually win.

    1. Tish Mahorey

      “when they seen how well FF done”

      OR

      “When they had seen how well FF had done.”
      “When they saw how well FF did.”

      1. some old queen

        Is it not reasonable to assume that that USA elections are more personality driven than Europe?

        1. petey

          “reasonable to assume”

          jesus h. christ in a chicken basket.
          why not just get it over with and call us ‘septics’.

  7. human

    The only people who think there is any kind of Trump melt down going on are are the lefties in the media shilling themselves for Clinton.

      1. human

        Have all you lefties just switched you critical faculties off? or did you have any to begin with?

    1. rotide

      Are these the same lefties that are out to character assasinate corbyn? or are they they righties in the media?

      Did they do a deal to divvy up potential targets?

  8. rory

    When you see an image like that on the front of such an iconic magazine, it feels like the beginning of the end for Trump.
    Hopefully that is the case, although at this stage I’m not sure if I understand American Voters that well.
    What’s said in this video below about Trump (starting at 0:48) is genuinely unnerving:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-rwC8aREdo

      1. rory

        Do you think what was said in the video was not true? i.e. Trump asking about nukes like that.
        I hope he didn’t. It does seem to fit into his character though.

          1. Junkface

            Of course Trump asked that about the nukes. He’s a raving lunatic! Literally. In his head he wants to nuke ISIS in Syria, regardless of the civilians also living in a Warzone. They don’t matter so much to him as they are Muslims, collateral damage.

            Absolute Nutcase!

    I’ll just leave this here:

    http://charleshughsmith.blogspot.ie/2016/08/the-more-establishment-freaks-out-over.html

    “Dear Establishment pundits, flacks, hacks, sycophants, apparatchiks, toadies, lackeys, functionaries, leeches and apologists: the more you label Trump as “singularly inappropriate,” the more attractive he becomes to the 81% who’ve been left behind by the financialized-globalized-neofeudal order that has so greatly enhanced your own wealth, influence and power.

    [..]

    “The people outside the cozy walls of the protected elites don’t care if he is unqualified (by the standards of those who get to pick our presidents for us) narcissistic, singularly inappropriate, and so on–they are cheering him on because you, the multitudes of water-carriers for the Imperial elites, the teeming hordes of well-paid, I-got-mine-so-shut-the-heck-up pundits, flacks, hacks, sycophants, apparatchiks, toadies, lackeys, functionaries, leeches and apologists, are so visibly afraid that your perks, wealth, influence and power might drain away if the 80% actually get a say.

    […]

    “[W]e’re sick of you, every one of you, and the neofeudal Empire you support. We want you cashiered, pushed outside the walls with the rest of us, scraping by on well-earned and richly deserved unemployment.

    1. MoyestWithExcitement

      That’s all well and good but Trump is part of that establishment. He has completely fooled people into thinking he’s one of them.

    2. rotide

      So let me get this straight. Billionaire Donald Trump, son of Multi-Millionaire Fred Trump is seen as outside of the protected elites and the voice of those who have been left behind by the “inancialized-globalized-neofeudal order”

      jesus. wept.
      No wonder you believe every half baked conspiracy theory that you stumble across reading the comments on youtube.

      I’m not a billionaire, I’ll never be a millionaire and I’m a long way from the ‘protected elite’. I do however posses a brain that has been somewhat educated and the ability to listen and think and reason.

      Trump is singularly inappropriate to be president.

      1. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

        YouTube is a common reference point for the internet crank. But increasingly, facts like trump is clearly unstable and no more a man of the people than any other rich entitled douche means little in a world where inconvenient facts can be written as conspiracy or project fear or smears or whatever you want to label them. That disconnect between nuanced reasoning and fact is the really scary thing.

        1. Zuppy International

          From the blogs you don’t read:

          https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2016/08/13/dnc-insider-hillary-clintons-campaign-is-imploding/

          “Around May our High Command said we had this in the bag. It’s not in the bag…. I can’t get caught saying this. None of us are gonna have careers when this is over but there are…other concerns…. Hillary’s in a panic. She’s always been on some kind of medication–but they’ve been upping the hell out of it. She’s freezing. She’s having panic attacks. The Secret Service is trained to get her out of these…fugue states–but one’s going to happen in public and it’ll all be over. Why do you think she doesn’t talk to the press?”

          Trump by a landslide.

  10. Eoin

    Hitler or Hitlery. Take your pick. It’s a bit blatant how much power the Clintons have in the US. Hillary never gets a negative mention and Trump gets demonized. You know he’s got three times the positive comments and articles on social media than Hillary? Choose the method of your destruction America cos neither of these can fix what Barack Bush and the Fed have done. And neither of them will be able to act fast enough to stop Wall St looting like vikings once Wall St realises the banking/financial system can’t be saved either. And keep in mind Hillarys had $120 million off Wall ST so far for her campaign and Trumps had $20,000 or something minute like that. Who’s more likely to at least try to police Wall St? Anyway, Euroland will be next. We’ll wish we’d had the foresight the Brits had in getting out. I’d expect all the financial supports to be dropped directly after the November 8 election. Could be a tough winter.

    1. LW

      Eoin I think this is my favourite comment by you ever. Which of Trump’s past deals has given you the impression he’s likely to “try to police Wall st”?

  11. manonfire

    Clinton and trump are unofficially singing off the same hymn sheet, all the build up and mudslinging is for the media/public consumption only, its all theater anyone who takes either one seriously at this stage is naive,
    see 10.15 mins in when kissinger drops the ball about what these goffers ALWAYS do once elected

    1. rory

      I don’t think anyone is doubting the hawkishness of Hillary.
      Personally I think she is the ‘slightly less worse’ candidate of the 2 with regard the ‘launching nukes’ issue; I think she’s a machine politician who wouldn’t be as impulsive as Trump could be.

        1. Royal M

          It was the horror film string section on the soundtrack that really sold me. Listen to the music, she must be evil!

  12. manonfire

    And if you want to be properly worried listen to Theresa May at 5.10 mins in of the above clip discussing the nuke issue

    1. Neilo

      Support Israel? Hardly a major departure for a presidential candidate. Got to mark you a -C on Broadsheet’s module on Jew-baiting.

    1. Deluded

      There are at least six different things suggested by your answer, mostly unrelated. Did you mean “gofer”, as in a lackey or a stooge?

        1. Deluded

          For whom do they stooge? The same people or different people? Don’t they represent the desires of the voters?

          1. manonfire

            A selection of big businesses predominantly military in industry, on representing voters interests please view the clip a few posts above “still listening to the enemy” at 10.15 henry kissinger outlines how candidates morph into stooge mode once elected

    -You are a liar.

    Yeah, I know…but somebody was going to say it eventually. Gimme a break.
