    I'm not a big Trump fan but I found this video amusing lol. What is really funny is the lengths some people go through to either support or tear down a political person.

    What I find funny is Americans ripping into their own president like it doesn't make the whole country a worldwide joke

    I have to agree. The 2016 election and all the vile crap and investigations that came out of it didn't make America look very competent to others.

    It is all the same, and this country is lied to and divided exactly the same way as before.

    We've been divided for a long time. That's the job of the parties, to keep us divided.
    However as far as I can remember, it's the first time we've blammed another country for our presidential outcomes.

    So it makes us look like a joke to exercise the rights we were given to chastise, criticize, and personally reject a president, whether they got less than half the vote or not?

    I personally think in this communication age, the need for elected representatives is long passed

    Because dems reps are the same medal, two sides, you flip it and I doubt it land on then the rib. They like Stalin or Hitler always need enemies to demand more sacrifices and enhance their own importance just like in Rome.

    I agree both parties are the problem. Sadly there are too many hardcore dems and hardcore repubs that are blinded by their party.

    We don't live in a democracy, and nor should we embrace what amounts to mob rule (the reason America isn't a democracy).

    Not the first time, and likely it won't be the last.

    Political parties need to go. It was known even from the beginning they cause far too many more problems than they are worth, and today we see this as party loyalty taking priority over the nation and our liberties and rights.

    Whether you want to accept it or not, America was established as a Republic to prevent a "democratic based" majority from trampling the minority. The Founders saw democracy as basically mob rule, and they were right. Having our elections staggered the way they are is another "anti-democracy" feature that prevents spur-of-the-moment movements from taking total control. Just because people have a vote doesn't mean they live in a democracy.

    Both parties serve the same puppet master.
