OMG, it’s contagious!

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse …

Donald Trump and newly elected British Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Here’s what England’s The Guardian had to say:

Both are loudmouthed man-children, with a history of adultery and other scandals, whose professional success is a combination of immense privilege, unscrupulous opportunism and relentless self-promotion, all happily promoted by a complicit media environment.

There’s more, but you can read it for yourself if you like.

Apologies to the UK. We didn’t know our affliction was contagious.

  1. Though in reality I think it started with the Reagan/Thatcher pair… I’ll have to look back at images of that era. I wonder if there’s any resemblance?

      • I lived in California when he was governor. I suppose we could go clear back to Nixon to see the beginning of the road we’ve been on since he resigned. There are some striking parallels to be had from back then, but Reagan/Thatcher started the trickle-down theory which helped push us over the edge. (IMHO)

        • Nixon was an amateur compared to Trump, yet we forced him out of office. I guess Congress had a backbone back then.

          I don’t recall who started trickle-down thinking, but it seems like it should have been obvious that it wouldn’t work. Except, of course, those at the top of the food chain would naturally support it.
