One of the most dangerous things about Trump is that it's becoming harder and harder to feel 'shocked' by his behaviour. I think we have all become desensitised to his BS.

Just cos trump says it, doesn’t mean it’s not true

There are definite similarities

Fabrication of ‘facts’ to prove points
Denial of their past statements even in the face of evidence
Scaremongering over immigration
Promises to make their countries the best in the world ever (or words to that effect)
Making promises they can’t deliver
Putting their individual profiles ahead of everything else

You ok with all that?

Most of those could be applied to many politicians.

Who said I was OK with any of them? I didn't. I don't support Johnson.

It's just to say Johnson is the British Trump is left wing knicker wetting of the highest degree.....huge swathes of left wing twitter now think we now have a fascist government... it's adolescent, fantasy stuff.

Patel does believe in the Death Penalty (unless she's changed). So I'll be watching what happens there.

I'm not particulaly left wing and would compare Trump to Johnson in many respects quire easily (how could one NOT draw parralels ?!).

Being able to identify two peas in a pod is not a skill particular to left wingers.

Ok. if we're looking for weak links. Equally as well

- strong use of identity politics
- constant reference to the 'elites' and breaking the 'system' (Draining the swamp in trump speak)
- constant attacks on, reluctance to engage with, and complaining about bias of 'MSM'
- populism

could be Jeremy Corbyn

Completely agree. It's extremely worrying.

What other prime ministers or presidents are you thinking of?

That’s a lot of exaggeration for someone accusing others of getting over excited!

Trumpism is catching on down under

Australian deputy PM : “I also get a little bit annoyed when we have people in those sorts of countries pointing the finger at Australia and say we should be shutting down all our resources sector so that, you know, they will continue to survive,”

He then went on that they will survive due to Australian fruit.

Impeachment [www.bbc.co.uk]

I don't believe this will bring Trump down and fear the predictions that it will strengthen his fab base are correct .

But then I didn't believe that Johnson's prorogation would be found illegal.....

If Trump has been asking the Ukrainians to dig up dirt on Joe Biden he's been a naughty boy.

There must be some world rule that stops Trump from doing this as he's gone way too far now.

Ahh the Trump thread. being 7pts odd behind and needing to pull back in the swing states Trump is coming out with more and more dirty stuff - but some people seem to like that. I think we can expect it to get as dirty as a 1970s Wales-England rugby international.

They played on loop a video of Nancy Pelsosi going to the hairdresser this morning.

I think there's a fake Trump thread going around.

"Fox News will broadcast an interview on Saturday night in which Donald Trump accuses Joe Biden of taking performance-enhancing drugs."

Biden did look quite lithe running towards the camera - Trump can't cope that he maybe on the Peloton.
