🔗 Link Post: "Donald Trump, the view across the pond"

Paul J. Miller:

“Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.

And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.”

Paul offers some thoughts and insights regarding Trump, from a British perspective. I think the Australian view is similar, but members of our society are more likely to say, “well, what else would you expect from a Seppo1?” Disparaging critique is a key element of our culture.


  1. Seppo, short for septic tank, which rhymes with Yank, which is slang for an American citizen. [return]
