Hempy, I don't mean to blow sunshine off your arse, but you're more an artful debater than the troll John Hill.

Trump, soon to be head of state of the USA, has been heard telling others how he likes to sexually assault young women and I am not aware of any present head of state of any other country claiming such a thing.

Well, there is a certain place called North Korea where its leader lives like a king and is revered like a god.
He kills anyone who doesn't agree or is loyal to him and treats his own people worse than stray dogs, but - maybe - he's not a womanizer.
He must be better than Trump.

Some interesting coverage here about the effects, and sources, of fake news for our cousins recent anomaly of an election....and the rest of the world.

https://www.channel4.com/news/progra...016/11/24/1900

And then there's this lady...

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...n-pennsylvania

Is it possible, seriously, for her efforts to potentially overturn the result?......hope, as they say, springs eternal and even more so in this case.

DirtyProp, as much as I believe Trump is dangerous, I have to admit that a bit of the alpha male in me is slightly impressed by his ability and willingness to keep upgrading his women. If I could pull chicks like he does when I'm 70 I'd be reasonably satisfied. Thank goodness SWMBO doesn't read PPRuNe!

They say that it doesn't matter how you look, you just need to be big in one of two departments - bank balance or .......

I'll never be a billionaire, but I do wear a size 13 shoe, and my hands are WAY bigger than Trumps!

See you guys are suffering from the same thing we are this side of the pond

US election recount: Jill Stein raises funds to examine Wisconsin result - BBC News

Ask the country a question and when you don't get the answer you want stamp your feet like a petulant 2 year old and demand 'mommy makes things right', bunch of chisellers!

The North Carolina Legislature (held for over 100 Years by the Democrats) passed a Law that allows for a "Contested Election" to be decided by a Vote in the Legislature. As it was comfortably held, and had been held for over a Century, the Democrats were quite happy with the Law....and used it on one occasion to seat a new (and Democrat) Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Now...the Governor's race is too close to call, has had one recount, there are Law Suits in place on many issues to include Voter Fraud (Which Democrats reject any notion that could ever happen.....Fraud that is), and will become a "Contested Election" and thus our Legislature (now a firmly held Republican majority in both Houses) will determine who the new Governor shall be....the current Gov a Republican or the challenger, the State Attorney General (a Democrat).

I am sure you can hear the whining of the Democrats an Ocean away!

How unfair, how un-democratic, the Voters are being dis-enfranchised......all because they changed the Rules to suit them without thinking ahead.

Exactly ilke the Democrats in the US Senate did under Pinky Reid....and now when the Republicans will use the new Rules against the Democrats...the Dem's proclaim it a travesty!

Of course it's a travesty .... as stated at different times by different people

but it's also democratic, else we could settle it by gunfire

Silvio Berlusconi goes for buxom and nubile women in public.

Hempy,

Nice try, but it was Gore that started the Mess in Florida after he conceded the election.

Really? I thought it was the seedy dealings of the 5 Republican Supreme Court Justices who halted the Florida vote recount in favour of Bush in Bush v. Gore.

The five Repugnants voted for the Repugnant guy. The other four voted for the other guy.

A classic example of why any society should never politicise a Justiciary.

Quote of the day...

"We were so off message that a billionaire with gold-plated toilets was the guy who was breaking through and talking to blue-collar families," said Betras, party chairman in Ohio's heavily Democratic Mahoning County, where Trump captured 47 percent of the vote, 12 percentage points better than Republican Mitt Romney in 2012.

It's ALWAYS the economy! Or more accurately, who gets how much of what.
