I really wish it were true. Alas, it is not. It was created by a satirical website simlar to the onion.

I hate myself for looking it up now. Sorry.

Thought it might be, but it was too good to spoil by looking it up to check #TheresAlwaysOneWhoHasToSpoilItForEveryone.

Meanwhile, in the US, armed gunmen encouraged by the President, storm the Michigan state capitol to intimidate legislators. How is this not insurrection?

And look what happens when the President of the US encourages heavily armed gunmen to "Liberate" their state from the governor. Turns out encouraging armed militias to insurrection makes them plot acts of terrorism, including the kidnap and murder of the governor and possibly other hostages. Who could have thought it?

You can't even say it's dog whistles with trump.

Dog whistles are subtle, Trump just comes right out with it.

I have an elderly, Trump-supporting relative over there.  His Facebook feed is quite something.  Full of God-fearing calls to prayer, and guns.  Like millions of others in the US, he sees no contradiction.

A post the other day was one of the best...a list of reasons why any 'sane' voter would run a mile from the Democrats.  And top of the list?  They kill babies.  I swear I'm not making this up.  The ignorance & complete lack of sophistication is chilling.

My mum and stepdad have been in the States for a while now and sadly these are exactly the posts I see from them on the very rare times I venture onto FB. I guess the brainwashing from Fox News and weird bible bashers in Florida is difficult to escape from.

Well brace yourselves guys because we're on the same trajectory, just about 3 years behind them.

Who is going to win the Election then folks?

Biden is a shade under 1/2 at the bookies but we know what happened 4 years ago.

Either way, it appears that unrest is likely with many shops being boarded up. What a horribly divided place.

I'm thinking this as well unfortunately. That said, I would really really really love to see his face if he loses. He has already said they are going to be talking to lawyers after the election so he's got a ready made excuse if the worst was to happen for him.
