    This place serves 7 purposes:
    1) Debate about Trump.
    2) Talking about Trump.
    3) Shouting whatever you want at Trump.
    4) Laughing, crying, hating, liking Trump.
    5) Whatever else you want to do so long as it relates Trump.
    6) Whatever else you want to do even though it has nothing to do with Trump.
    7) etc.

    Here are a few quotes:

    My whole life is about winning. I don't lose often. I almost never lose.

    I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall.

    They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

    They will be met with fire and the fury like the world has never seen.

    Make America great again.

    "Sorry losers and haters, but my IQ is one of the highest - and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure, it's not your fault.

    If Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her.

    You know they’re standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters.

    Fake news.

    Despite the constant negative press covfefe.

    I could add plenty more quotes but they would never be able to fit.

    Unless that person was black, that would probably win him votes. :vomit:

    I think that will be my new favourite emoticon.

    "6) Whateve else you want to do even though it has nothing to do with Trump."

    I think some people who claim Bowie or the Sex Pistols changed their lives in 1970's in fact continued to listen to Gilbert O'Sullivan, the Four Tops and Barbara Sreisand most of the time. Oh yes, and Gary Glitter. And Roberta Flack, Janis Ian and Jim Croce. That's Janis Ian, not Janis Joplin, btw. Go on, admit it. You know who you are.

    Sadly, I have a feeling you may be right.

    Never have so many free individuals felt so helpless – so desperate to take back control from anyone they can blame for their feeling of having lost it. It should not be surprising that we have seen an exponential rise in hatred of minorities, the main pathology induced by political and economic shocks. These apparent racists and misogynists have clearly suffered silently for a long time from what Albert Camus called “an autointoxication – the evil secretion, in a sealed vessel, of prolonged impotence”. It was this gangrenous ressentiment, festering for so long in places such as the Daily Mail and Fox News, that erupted volcanically with Trump’s victory.

    Again? Has he already won in 2020?

    Also, is there any particular reason why you'd want Trump to win as opposed to some other Republican?

    It's your topic, Rene! Subsection 6).

    Did anyone hear the brilliant adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 'The Robber Bride' on BBC R4? I'm looking forward to and also dreading part 2.

    The good thing about Trump, as opposed to many other Republicans, is that he's not afraid to be conflictual with Democrats when he must. For example, about the importance of God in American public discourse, etc.

    Again because he won the Presidency in the past.

    I'm sure there are plenty of other Republicans who will do that too.

    For sure, but if I look at the past 20 years or so I haven't seen any Republicans do that pretty much. Bush didn't. McCain didn't. Romney didn't. Etc.

    I mean the issue is that the other Republican candidates, prior to Trump, were pretty much fighting the battle on Democrat ideological battleground, accepting the assumptions of the Democrats, which also happen to be the prevailing cultural assumptions that get disseminated through Media and the Academia. Trump is the first one taking the battle on his own ground, which is different from that one.

    Oh, please! Surely you are not counting on Donald Trump to restore God to some alleged central place in American public discourse? Give us a fucking collective break.

    Not necessarily, but he's the first Republican to have adopted the right attitude when fighting the Democrats, and not give in to their presumptions, not fight the battle on their territory. That is important.
