Maybe I was wrong to treat manas like an fully formed adult human being and maybe I should take your attitude and treat manas like a weakling.
I'm getting a lot of notifications, now I see why.
I admit my aversion to Hillary had a bit to do with why I posted the original video. But so did the fact that, from the election to the present day, the mainstream media have hardly ever given Trump a chance,
hardly ever. I feel it's been very one-sided, and I don't like it how, even when he does the right thing, many are so opposed no matter what, they deride it anyway. Just trying to redress what I feel is an imbalance.
Trump can be badly spoken, has been uncouth, rude on occasion, etc. But I think he pretends
less than many other politicians, yes, especially he is much less fake than Hillary, who I still feel is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Let's look more at what he does, less at how he speaks. Thus far, I'm upset by his recognition of Jerusalem, as the capital of Israel, which he appears to have done, to secure the zionist / fundamentalist christian vote in America, and his weakening of environmental protection laws, for example. But regarding waging foreign wars, he hasn't come close to Obama's expansion of the so-called 'war on terror'
. His haters don't seem to recognize that. Let's look at what he actually does,
rather than the often 'unpresidential' nature of his speech. Obama spoke charmingly and eloquently, but some of his actions
(decisions, orders) were utterly appalling, in terms of loss of life, killing of civilians, etc:
Obama embraced the US drone programme, overseeing more strikes in his first year than Bush carried out during his entire presidency. A total of 563 strikes, largely by drones, targeted Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen during Obama’s two terms, compared to 57 strikes under Bush. Between 384 and 807 civilians were killed in those countries, according to reports logged by the Bureau. https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/s ... -than-bush
...but at least he was 'presidential' in his manner and bearing! (irony intended).
