I'd like to state for the record my opinions on the Donald once and for all. I do not like him. I think that he is a right wing A-Hole. I am a socialist and thus obviously to the left of the Republican Party in general.
However I still say that I am glad he won over Hillary (they were the only two choices at that time its pointless to say "I would have preferred Bernie" as he was never an option due to the crooked system whose power Hillary's win would have cemented BTW as she was their candidate.)
I've been over my reasons for disliking Hillary before. They are mostly due to her foreign policy, so rather than restate them I'll just post these videos from other left wing people who wanted Trump to win over Hillary. Everyone from a Marxist, John Pilger, to a Socialist, George Galloway to a classical Liberal, Sargon of Akkad. They sum up 95 percent of my reasons.
Now that Trump is in power I think the hysteria around him has been ridiculous, and hypocritical.
It makes me sick when people say he is worse than George W Bush, not because I like Trump, but because its unbelievable that people would actually long for the tenure of a man who started a war that killed over a million people and left the bodies of his own people to rot after a natural disaster. A travel ban (which Obama also brought in too) is apparently worse than "Operation Shock and Awe"!
IMO Trump is lucky in that the bar has been set so low for him to be remembered as a great President who exceeded all expectations. To start with its been set so low by his 5 immediate predecessors, Reagan to Obama. All should have been/be on trial for crimes against humanity. If Trump doesn't launch an illegal war then he will automatically be better than they were.
Added to that the ridiculous hyperbole around Trump has also made it easy for him to succeed. All this he is Hitler, he will round up all LGBT people and kill them. Again all he has to do is not be Hitler LOL and he will prove the majority of his critics wrong. Its never been easier for a President to silence all his critics and be better than his predecessors. Maybe he will fail, but still even if he does cause a war then he is merely as bad as his predecessors not worse.
