Just be really difficult cheering for a team you don't like.

Sorry if that rubs a bit.

I think I've only ever seen one other person in politics, who talks over other people to the degree that she does, and I'd really like to see a discussion between just the two of them, in the same room.

That orange faced baboon, who lives in Washington. That would be one to watch, just to see who draws breath first.
I don’t know who you are talking about in the UK but in the US Kellyanne Conway gets the gold medal for talking over people and going on for 15 minutes w/o taking a breath!

My favorite word for her is “annoying.” She is famous for coining the term “alternative truth” in defending the “orange faced baboon” and his non-stop lies!

Trump never disappoints. Typical tweet from him today:

“The Fake News and phony Fake Suppression Polls have never been worse. The Lamestream Media has gone CRAZY!”

Yes, dear leader, your polls have never been worse! And it isn’t the media that has gone crazy!

They’re the only fans I’ve ever personally felt threatened by, but who cares, we’re champions

I’m pleased that Lampard is doing well because he deserves it. Maybe their fans will start to behave themselves too.

John Dean
“Trump was stumped by Hannity’s softball question about his priorities for a second term. He has none. Zip. Zero. He still doesn’t have a clue! It is terrifying that people will vote for this egomaniacal fool.”

Just to prove that it's not ALL Trump...

It appears the US have their own version of Diane Abbott in Joe Biden.

He reckons 200 million have died of Covid 19 in the US, and there's been 150 million gun related deaths in the USA since 2007.

Can't people just write figures that he's going to have to quote, on a piece of paper for him. Remembering numbers when you're a senior, isn't brilliant for anybody.

He was floundering. His mouth was moving faster than his brain could keep buffering.

I think Bernie Ecclestone might have just said something a little controversial.

Ex-F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone says Black people are often 'more racist than White people,' even as he praises Lewis Hamilton's drive for diversity
