His whole political history is a prime example of this, surely ?
@PaulP Sorry I fixed it, should have written "global politics".

I was trying to discuss Trump's influence on dud politicians in other countries, the low end bottom feeders are adopting his tactics pretty much everywhere you look! Trump's behaviour like a universal user manual for how to sh1t in the pool and peg the blame on someone else!

Perhaps he has emboldened a few, but he isn't the first in recent times by any means. Berlusconi and Orbán immediately spring to mind as forerunners. I've said a few times that the left is basically dead, and the world is shifting to the right, with barely any exceptions, and barely any resistance.

I would be very reluctant to attribute any trend setting to a bloke who has never had an original thought in his life.  I think that his success in being elected to the Presidency and getting the presumptive Republican nomination for the next election may have emboldened populist and totalitarian leaders.  They have more ruthless and successful (if I can use that word) authoritarian figures to follow, as has the likely Republican nomination himself.

Interesting...
We're now getting regular incidents of Trump making gaffes or saying the wrong thing or things out of context...not in the calculated way  he has done in the past,  but more in line with an elderly man with diminishing faculties.
If these debates go ahead it will be interesting to see how he goes in a structured session where he is not in control.
It was kind of thought he would have little trouble outshining Biden. Rightly or wrongly that was the expectation.
So really all Biden needs to do is match Trump or go close...and he'll  get a boost.

I watched some footage of the presumptive GOP nominee at the Libertarian Party convention.  He had arranged for MAGA supporters to enter the venue early to give an impression of support but they were overwhelmed by the Libertarians’ boos.

The former President was booed when he told the Libertarians to nominate him as their presidential candidate and was booed even more when he berated them for not following his directive.

He was nominated for their ballot and received six votes out of 1051 🙄

Maybe Trumps mind is going south and he will be joining Joe Biden down at the Happy Acres home for old Presidents....

Saw a few reports recently from psychiatrists specialising in dementia and all agreed that Trump is exhibiting very real symptoms (of dementia).

Biden's issue is very different. He has a rather bad stutter and to prevent the stutter presenting itself he has to go through a brief psychological system in his bonce to prevent the stutters... makes him seem like there's a dementia issue. Add that to normal age mental deterioration and voila, instant senility appearance.

Bottom line. Neither is fit to run the local milkbar.

Please. If you think Trump is showing signs of dementia then Biden needs to be in a high dependency ward.

they both do.  These guys are essentially the same age as my parents.  My dad passed away in 2004, and mum is looking frail healthwise and understands as much about living in a technological world as anyone of her generation.  Why are these people leading our countries?  Ageism aside the prime candidates should be somewhere between age 40 and 65, any older and they're too detached from the realities of being sub 40 in the modern world.  He'll I hear half the kids I work with of Sam walshes generation and occasionally feel like a dinosaur and I'm 41.

One is exhibiting classic signs of cognitive decay, the other is trying to control a speech impediment.

However, neither should be in charge of a chook raffle, let alone a nation that likes to think of itself as the leader of the free world.

Their 18th century “democratic system” hasn’t been fit for purpose since the dawn of the 20th century and it won’t be changing anytime soon.

I'd be wary of getting sucked in to the cult of individuals. Both these guys have a massive team and support crew behind them. Even though neither of them should be anywhere near the Oval Office, I'd say the chances of them exercising that power in an individualized, unaccountable fashion, are fairly small.

Yep.

But the problems facing the US go way beyond Biden & Trump. The first question to ask yourself is how the fck do these two get to be chosen to lead their respective parties!! There is palpable decline of both the Democrats and Republicans with resultant foolish disagreement and even hatred between the two. Yep, a civil war is on the cards - not like 1860 but could be ever bit as devastating. It is a nation divided against itself... something Abe Lincoln foresaw and was very worried about. China and Russia are loving it.

Once upon a time, the Dems & Reps were civil to each other and united on many policies. Each was more moderate than today's iteration. Enter the lunatics of the Far Left and Right. Now the Dems & Reps hate each other and do just about anything to spite the other. Result? Democracy and decency are in decay.

One of many problems with the US presidential process is the phenomenal cost of running, and even to seek nomination.

I think that virtually disqualifies many competent, capable, middle-aged folk.

I'm sure Biden is being well looked after.
Trump on the other hand is a bit of a loose cannon.
He'll be hell bent on squaring up with a few who he feels have done him wrong.
He'll surround himself with sycophants in positions of power and they'll mostly do things that will keep them in his good books.
I wouldn't be surprised what he gets up to...but a lot of old 'alliances' will be under a bit of stress.
