I woke up this morning to find that my American neighbours (Spelled with a u) had elected “The Donald” as the next president of the United States. I can understand why political writers and cartoonists would want “The Donald” but that doesn’t explain the results. I realize that the voting public were presented with two less than ideal candidates but “The Donald”?
Other countries that already promoted the United States as a self important country filled with corrupt politicians were hoping for an outcome like this. The fact that the American voting public delivered it to them on a silver platter, doesn’t reflect well on the honest, hard working citizens of the most powerful country in the world.
Many countries in the rest of the world look to America to show them the way.
The only hope the world has now is that the President of the United States will have his hands tied (and hopefully be muzzled) by the rest of the elected government. I watched a greatest hits video on Saturday that summarized everything that “The Donald” had said during his campaign and I figured that would be enough to convince the voting public that he was not a worth candidate.
I would have to say that I and many other outsiders are in shock today.
