    On the inauguration of this new thread I would like to come forward and announce that I don't much care for Donald Trump.

    As flat as a cat that was rolled over by a bulldozer.

    That was 3 levels of offensive packaged into 1!

    "All these nations that take our money and then vote against us at the Security Council or the assembly... Let them vote against us, we'll save a lot. We don't care."
    -- Trump

    "You've restored American credibility on the world stage."

    Republicans have, for decades, been criticised for treating the American economy as if it was a simple household economy.

    But the Trump administration seems to be treating global politics as an argument over Christmas dinner.

    One thing we can give to the Trump administration and the Republican congressional leadership, they've extended the relevance of the "Clown Car" title far beyond what any of us expected. Entering into its fourth calendar year!

    It may well outlast the administration itself.

    Had Hillary won, there would be another Clown Car thread about the Rep primaries in 2019 or local elections in 2018. Trump just turned a couple of shorter threads into one long runner.

    I thought that one was particularly cringe-worthy. You're supposed to be the nation that speaks softly but carries a big stick, yet even an alleged diplomat has taken up Trump's bullying tactics!

    I couldn't find that for whatever reason...

    Oh, they're basically telling the entire world that "You're either with us and accept trump as your new messiah, Or your with the Liberals-Globalist-Elites!"

    It's possibly significant that, while Obama's appointees to the position both had careers in international affairs, Haley is a career politician. In the political climate that produced a Trump presidency, speaking softly is a losing tactic, and I suppose we should expect some difficulty in her adjusting to a role which she has, as far as I can tell, no particular qualifications for.

    Although it may sound like the grossest hyperbole to you and I, there are people out there who actually believe that.

    What a surprise that people have managed to find a way to talk about Hillary Clinton again. It's almost as if they're conceding that her administration would have been better managed than the clowns currently pretending to be politicians.
