It already happened here in the last election. Obviously not to the extent of the US election, or even the UK election. Facebook boomers & karens are the big target, Clive Palmer spent millions on flat out lies in order to siphon votes to the otherwise deeply unpopular Coalition by redirecting people to his 'party' or One Nation, and people following how to vote cards ultimately end up voting for the LNP when their first, second etc votes exhaust and move under our preferential voting system.

After seeing a video where Trump is described as a psychopath, this will be even worse news

Donald Trump's niece Mary set to publish explosive book about her family https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/jun/15/donald-trump-niece-book-about-her-family-mary-too-much-and-never-enough?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard

As well as 

First Thing: Covid-19 skeptics may convert as virus hits Trump country https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/15/first-thing-covid-19-skeptics-may-convert-virus-hits-trump-country-coronavirus-cases?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard

Maybe we will see the end of the attempted coup of the USA by the awful section of the Trump family

The best analogy I've seen in response to that is it's like when a toddler closes their eyes and thinks nobody can see them.

He's not wrong though.

He's not wrong.

:lol:

****, I just realised it's the Mussolini school of policy making. The trains run on time cos you change the definition of "on time".

 

Anyway, how about these India China mountain border skirmishes? THe agreement is no weapons on that section of the disputed border, so the soldiers went at it like a street brawl, and the casualties -  20, according to India - are mostly soldiers who fell of cliffs while fighting. Insane.

Haha that’s what I was going to add. It’s called object permanence.

The pure stupidity goes on......they waste tax payers dollars to stockpile a drug that has no efficacy for COVID-19,  the presidents friends make a bucketload of cash and people who need the drug for Lupus and Rhuematoid Arthritis can't source it for the conditions the drug is legitimately useful for. Infuriating.

“Do you get the impression that the supreme court doesn’t like me?” Trump later questioned on Twitter after graphically likening the decision to “shotgun blasts into the face” of conservatives.

 

Oh dear!  :nono:

Didn't Clive donate his stockpile? Perhaps the media should ask Morrison how much of this has been used to combat Covid 19. I also wonder if Clive also took it as a 'precaution'.

Fascism means rule by a dictator. The Trumpster was democratically elected.

He acts like a dictator and assumes his every edict will be followed. And some US swing voters are waking up to him.

Who elected the judges. A lot of judges are lefty wankers. Some seem to think judges are some sort of mystical infallible creatures endowed by infinite wisdom.

A judge is just a solicitor who got promoted. And we all know what reputation solicitors have in the community.

Lol, this is a false narrative. They are well out of the election yet and anything (as we have seen in 2016) can happen. Especially when you have an incumbent with everything to lose. Biden will have a struggle because he will be fighting a team willing to do literally anything.......ANYTHING to win. It’s still Trumps election to lose in these conditions.
