      Some hyperbole but very little…personally this is pretty accurate as far as I’m concerned. Just remember that this is only his part…there are many, many on both sides that have brought us here.

      Germany’s Der Spiegel is that country’s most influential weekly news publication. It has the highest circulation numbers of any news weekly in Europe. Please take a look at its most recent cover. The description of Trump translates most directly as “Fire Devil: A President Sets His Country on Fire.”

      Criticism of Trump as a leader is one thing, but we are seeing that his (lack of) leadership is causing direct harm to America’s international standing. A CNN article ran with the following headline: “Is the US still the world’s moral leader? Not after what Trump just did this week.” The article quotes Pedro Sánchez, the prime minister of Spain, saying “I stand in solidarity with the demonstrations that are happening in the United States. Because obviously we are all very concerned about the authoritarian debate and those authoritarian ways that we are seeing as a response to some demonstrations.” <<<snip>>>

      On edit: My original OP was edited to add that our present state of affairs didn’t come about with the tRump presidency. We should remember that we’ve been going down this road for over 40 years and both party’s have worked to get us here with cash payments from the oligarchs. However, the t-baggers and their ilk have gone for this destruction of our country and it’s citizens for decades with help from the bought off dems. Just thought I’d come back here and restate this…it didn’t make it through a time out on our website…it was lost.

      Thanks everyone for commenting…it’s important for us to realize the rest of the world sees us in a very negative light and there will be consequences.

      We are so screwed. We’re trapped with no way out. Voting for Biden won’t do shit. What a joke/nightmare.

      I’m getting pretty sick of “Trump is the Devil” articles and cartoons. What do we do about it? Bernie was our last chance and it turned into a dead end.  🙁

      @Pam2 I went back and edited the OP to include an original edit that got timed out and lost. Trump is the monster that has been installed to destroy, confuse, disgust and exhaust American citizens. This is no longer politics as usual and it took many years and various actors for us to get here. Both parties have contributed. All this and not a fucking word about the world burning!! I understand your distress and thank you for your comment.

      on edit: now the text has been lost along with the link…damn. I don’t know if I did it or there is a glitch. Sorry everyone.

      “Is the U.S. still the world’s moral leader”? LOLOLOLO. I laughed for 5 minutes after reading that line! Although when you look at Germany’s past maybe we are, at least compared to them.

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
