I don't think you should believe everything Mr Trump says.

Nor anything that Boris Johnson says. Therein lies at least a small link.

Hmm. Well, one person who is certainly looking forward to Brexit in any form is Vladimir Putin. I suspect he is sleeping very well at present.

Cheers,
John

The framing of this thread indicates the extent to which Trump’s taunting machismo has gotten into certain libs’ heads.

Sure, Quincy, since I've never once heard you taunt a politician or even a poet you don't like. Always with the measured, mature rhetoric that is your trademark. Give me a break. It's only when Trump is being attacked that you retire the clever curseword coinages you're known for, never when it's Warren or Clinton, etc.

"It used to be that I would see a poem that fucking sucked rancid ballsacks in a major magazine, and I would think in my naivete, 'The field is wide open. I'll submit a bunch of poems and show them how it's done!' Now I see a vacuous poem fellating Satan's cock with worm-jizz running down its chin, and I think that the people who run the show are a gaggle of fetid morons, and I hardly submit at all."

--Me, every time I read Poetry magazine or some shit.
Facebook post by someone who decries the extent to which Trump’s taunting machismo has gotten into certain libs’ heads.

There’s a difference between mocking a war criminal for being a war criminal, say, or using vulgarity to describe leaders who deserve measureless contempt and hatred. Amber A’Lee Frost is on-point with this. There is, however, a crucial difference between calling, say Kamala Harris a “careerist psycho” and saying, in effect, “my country’s $#itty leader is the top, and your country’s $#itty leader is the bottom.”
