US politics

Been chatting to quite a few yanks about this. The villification of Trump is obvious. What's interesting is the vindication of Trump: it's all over the place, superficially, but the common underlying theme is his lack of political background and the consistent lack of faith in the US political system. 

Now, just saw a rant about TSA at US airports using the term "big-government Republicans". Made me realise that Trump is, so far, nothing more than a rebel within the GOP. The only thing that will really bring him to power is if Democrats fail to unite in their resolve to win again. That and the media moths' penchant for heat over light.
