    I see he's not even pretending to hide his racism in his most recent tweet

    I'm not sure Scotland or Germany would have him back.

    It is, as someone pointed out, a pun on the word 'right'.

    Write?

    (and that is a pun on the word 'RIGHT?'

    I was concerned for Lagrange for a bit, not sure if I should be relieved or more concerned with that kind of humour :wink: . I needed the joke spelling out so maybe I should worry about myself :oops:

    As 'dead cats' go, suggesting a US Congresswoman was married to her own brother is

    'There's a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it.'
    Trump knows nothing about facts. Fact!

    I thought that it was just another dumb unthought remark - which maybe it is - but his follow up maintains the attack! I thought he'd back off.

    Isn't half the point that the spat is taking attention away from the Epstein link?

    The ambassador stuff wasn't working, so he's ratcheted things up a notch. He's found something that's worked in getting the headlines away from him being associated with Epstein.

    I now understand nothing about America, Iran sanctions, the China trade deal, N Korea, Brexit, my wife and Kids, Hong Kong, boost forking wheels, living / minimum wage the election of the leader of whatever and cricket.

    Epstein/Trump is still headline news across the pond - the news networks aren't really letting it go.

    the racism stuff seems only to be headline news in Europe ........

    id like to see what these congresswomen have been actually doing, not just hear trumps response without context.

    I dont condone his words but i wonder if the message might be love America first and if its in response to these womens actions.

    a little like taunting Corbyn for being present but not involved or what ever twaddle he came out with. Or taunting corbyn for inviting the IRA to parliament after the brighton bombing.

    I thought the squad were guilty of actions that the UK wouldn't need (as much) . Such as checking up on immigrant detention centres following reports of dangerous conditions. Or other socialist things. By USA socialism standards I mean anything centre right leftwards in UK political standards.

    AOC particularly was involved in the visit by Congress representatives and personnel from other NGOs / human rights groups / immigrant groups. Where they found questionable conditions. She's also at the fire on issues related to the southern border immigration.

    They're all big supporters of Obamacare and other universal healthcare matters. Generally left of the US centre.

    Other than these main issues that get reported over here I know very little about them. What I have heard doesn't give me any cause to hate them in the manner of Trump's supporters.

    BTW I do not think trump hates them but sees them as a political strategy. Exaggerate their extremism according to US mainstream standards then get that linked to the democratic party candidate. It's US politics 101 I'm afraid. He's just taken out further because his base likes further. Plus he does extremist very well.

    I am hoping that America learns to soon start to listen to what Trump says and wonder even if just for a minute where this leads. Michelle Obama did not forgive him for his birther rhetoric that put her family at risk for a lie. Trump is now just moved onto weaker pray. His standard response is to demean people who don't share his view. These are the actions of a dictator.

    Republican party backers/lobbyists will be mostly worried about the 70% top tax rate she is in favour of.

    Jeez! Calling the republicans like tories is like calling Blair a communist in reverse or some better analogy I can't be bothered thinking up. Republicans make ERG look left wing. The system over there seems to be to be mostly like UK but skewed to the right. Democrats, apart from a few, seem to be slightly right of John Major's government. You get the Bernice Sanders few but I doubt the big hitters like Pelosi are what the UK sees as left of centre politically. Perhaps in reading this wrong.

    The biggest insult is to call someone a liberal.

    well - unless any previous presidents are standing again - he's the ONLY ONE that can be re-elected ... the rest can only be elected ...

    Got his funding then but unless he does get re-elected I don't see any work ever commencing and $2.5 billion isn't going to go far.
