Looks like the world is going to hell in a handbasket.
It's bloody typical that I just get my green card only to have this country slip off the deep end by electing human embodiment of the colour orange and generally terrible human being DJ Drumph as their president
Guess come january when he takes the reigns of power I'll be shipped of to some camp for suspicious foreigners over here taking jobs from hard working amuriCans and be made to build a wall and pay for it. Just as well I'm a white hetero foreigner as there are likely lower levels of hell for those unfortunates not in that still privileged class although as an atheist with jewish ancestry maybe that moves me down circle or two.
The most heart breaking part about this is that the people who voted for him who did so out of sense of abandonment by the non insane regular money grubbing lying politicians who did so because they genuinely believe he will "make america great again" get them the jobs they've lost improve their lives and communities taking things back to a non existent golden age and make good on the promises of making their lives better are likely going to be fucked as hard if not harder by his rule.
He's preyed on the feelings of the disenfranchised and the marginalised, exploited their fears and the othersides complacency to get into power as worked so well in the brexit camp earlier
It shows how out of touch the main stream political machine has become and how complacent.
I don't know what this means for the world in general as with brexit what happens in a world with Trump at the helm of the worlds remaining super power is very much unknown for all his crazy rhetoric he's not really consistently put forward any sort of concrete plans and often contradicted himself depending on who he was talking to and what day of the week it was.
I guess we just have to take things a day at a time and hope he doesn't wreck this country and indeed the world too badly. Maybe it will serve as a lesson to the status quo politicians that business as usual will no longer fly with people who've been lied to exploited and ignored in favour of the needs of the rich and powerful.
