Apologies in advance, but upon seeing the clip of this I had to post about it. Donald Trump talking from the podium at a rally about free trade:
"I want great deals. I don't care if they're free. I don't care if they're fair. I don't care if they're good. I don't care if they're horrendous. I just want great deals. I'll do it all different ways."
His Brexit comments were nonsensical gold:
I think it's going to end up being a great thing, and the beautiful, beautiful, beautiful thing is your people have taken the country back and there's something very, very nice about that, and they voted, and it's been peaceful, and it was strong and very contentious, and in many respects I watched last night and it was a little bit ugly, but it's been an amazing process to watch.
The thing to remember is that the Brexit vote result comes from the same place as Trump's support (and Bernie's too): People are pissed about the status quo.
- Jobs are unstable.
- Wages have been flat for decades while productivity has soared, and all those gains (ALL of them) have gone to the wealthy.
- Greedy bankers and brokers crashed the economy and caused trillions in losses, and not a single person went to jail or even lost their job.
- There is little difference between the parties on most issues, and no hope of electing anyone else.
And on, and on.
'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? - GC
