Key word is that sentence was 'afar'

Life in the US is nothing like you describe for 99% of US residents.

Clearly. But US reputation is declining. Fast. Trust as well. Fairly or unfairly, it's how the rest of the world is perceiving it.

That's hardly news, and you'll find that the majority of Americans really don't give a wit about what happens outside their own borders beyond keeping 'illegals' out.

Those of us that do, intend to vote for Biden in November.

I happened to take a drive through a very high class Republican neighborhood on Saturday - enormous homes, mansions. Several signs in the yards already "Republicans for Biden". I guess there is some sort of movement.

He's just going to bluster and shout Fake News or get up and storm off. What Swan did, imo anyway, was draw attention to the utter stupidity of the man. Yes we know he's an idiot but in that interview he was shown to be unable to even read a few very simple bar graphs. He had no clue. He wasn't asked difficult questions that would mean a bullshit answer, he was asked questions that showed his complete lack of understanding of the problem. Swan dealt with him as though he was a child learning simple maths for the first time and for me it worked.
This sums it up for me. Trumpet is notoriously difficult to interview properly because when he is confronted by someone who has done their homework and has half a brain, he obfuscates with drivel or will ultimately spit the dummy. He behaves like a petulant child. I personally thought Swan did exactly what he planned to do; give Trumpet enough rope to hang himself and look utterly inept. Trouble is, 100 million people will still vote for that banana. It's those people that worry me more. What is wrong with them? Can't they see the man has the IQ of par golf?

WTF are these guys hoping to achieve? Trump's re-election?
It's frustrating. This is exactly what happened in '68. I've just been re-watching "Eyes on the prize" documentary about the civil rights movement, and of course Nixon uttered the words "I'm your law and order candidate" after riots erupted (I think after MLK's murder) during the primary campaign. Very unstettling.
