    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    It keeps on getting ludicrous. These are Berlusconi-style absurdities. Not unsurprisingly, from a similar form of corrupted power.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Exactly, and now Trump's move has gifted the Kurds to Assad and Russia. Putin's long-term cyber-propaganda strategy is paying off fantastically. First the aid to all the anti-euro political groups in Europe led to Brexit, then the aid (even just propaganda) to Trump's campaign led to him in...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    There are several bad things: the betrayal is already bad enough, the loss of image and of face for the USA, plus the disvalued word, the public caving in to Erdogan, the worrying signs of weakness, the seeming lack of a long-term strategy or maybe a colossal case of errors and inadequacies...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Sorry, I must admit I didn't get the reference. My ignorance, my fault. (also, this move from Trump really did get on my nerves, so I haven't thought enough about hidden references).

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    He is shamelessly putting up ridiculous excuses to a shameful decision, and makes everybody lose time and attention for nothing. He doesn't even have the guts to admit his own actions and to the public he only blabs out useless BS. Makes you understand the meaning of the words "honour"...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Trump tries to defend his betrayal at Kurds by saying they didn't help the US in WWII or Normandy. America, your word is worth that of a lying salesman with the dignity of a wet paper towel. What a shame.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    The move is going to cost dear to the US, both strategically and in public image. Making such expensive favours to powerful authoritarian leaders is a sign of weakness, as it is a sign that the US are so scared of having Erdogan... leaving them or NATO, maybe, and set sails for elsewhere, that...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    How to alienate allies, feed anti-USA sentiments, allow extremists to get their head out of the mud, make a favour to the authoritatian leader of a powerful country, lose whatever influence the US had in Syria (what was the point of that long support to the anti-Assad forces again?), make a...

    Volkswagen is in trouble with just about everybody on the f'ing planet

    I was thinking something along the lines of being respectful to the environment. Like "we care for the environment" and all the rest. Not a direct reference to VW, but a little push towards the environment in the ads. Everybody wanted to hear about cleaner cars in 2015-2016. Almost nobody made a...

    Volkswagen is in trouble with just about everybody on the f'ing planet

    Pretty much everyone cheated. That was already clear the moment none of VW's competitors tried to take advantage of the situation in 2015. To quote myself from those days: Not a word, not an advertisement to exploit the situation, nothing at all. Either they were a group of very sporty and...

    Volkswagen is in trouble with just about everybody on the f'ing planet

    Daimler fined for cheating on emissions. VW executives charged for witholding information to the shareholders about dieselgate.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Dignity. Something whose concept Trump doesn't even understand. The same thing that people are losing when supporting him beyond ridiculousness.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    This thing is so insane that anyone defending his mad behaviour is probably in denial. There are big problems in a system that manages to get this kind of people into leading roles.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Trump has a mental disorder. He will say and do absolutely anything to get consensus, and will be very annoyed if he doesn't get it. He does not believe to be the chosen one, he does not believe to be able to change the Constitution at will, he probably does not believe in half the stupid...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    @Blind_Io With Trump, it is possible to positively associate him with some of them, while almost all of the others remain real possibilities. I'd say there is definitely something going on with him that resembles those disorders quite a lot; what it is, and whether it derives from genetics or...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Yet you are extremely vague about that. It would be interesting to know what you think about this kind of person and this kind of behaviour, and if that sits well with what you believe in. Until know, what passes to me is you are somewhat ashamed of it, or of the fact that you agree with it...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    @LeVeL That every behaviour is equal as long as it's not judged guilty is a lame excuse normally used by people who do not want to aknowledge the elephant(s) in the room. As is your reply, who eludes my simple question in an expected but rather disappointing, weak and empty rethorical parry.
