Some of you have been keeping up with the lengthy and ridiculously costly presidential candidate race in the US. Personally, I am a fan of Bernie Sanders even though he may not get the nomination. If he doesn't, I am not sure who I will vote for but definitely not Donald Trump. Although not as scary as the hyper religious Ted Cruz, he is a real idiot. He can't keep his mouth shut at the wrong times. Now he supports Brexit. Don't worry, he really doesn't stand much of a chance against Hillary in the General Election and after the election will just go back to being a run of the mill *******. And, Bernie is close but far behind Hillary...if Bernie ran against Trump, Trump would have a chance but it ain't going to happen. My wife said the other day that Donald Trump was probably putting money into Bernie Sanders campaign. It will be interesting because Donald is an outsider with none of the Republican leadership support. What a fiasco!

I have a horror of the thought of President Trump shaking hands with Prime Minister Boris Johnson someday. Their hair will join together and destroy the planet.

Seriously, though - Trump is like something out of a Stephen King novel.

His main problem is that he doesn't play by the rules and lacks the overall party support.

Aw come on....let's get real, folks...Sanders is an old man who shouts a lot and imagines he's a socialist because he thinks everyone should have healthcare and a roof over their heads....
His more extreme followers are a mirror image of the Tea Party loonies.
Is Hillary beyond reproach? Of curse not. She can't be. She's actually had a taste of being a real political operator in the real world, where shiny principles get to face up to the chaos and contingency f the rea wicked world, where you rarely if ever get the chance to do what you want to do but have to choose the lesser evil of the choices you actually have.
And this, Amurkins, is your real world choice: Trump or Clinton.
If that could be seen by any sane person as a choice:)

Being a fellow Amurkin also with very deep Texas roots I have to agree. Hillary would have to be caught with her pants down with a young male aide for me to question voting for her. I am a rare breed, having been a lifelong Democrat in Texas and Wyoming. I will vote that way no matter what. Bernie is a progressive, not a socialist and will eventually lose to Hillary. This whole process this time has been a [email protected]@k. Thank God Cruz is out of the race now. Just thinking of a remote possibility of either he or Trump having the key to nuclear launch sites as well as the power to use it scares me more than Hillary.

I'm merely echoing your past Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama, not one of whom have I heard to say 'Am-er-ic-ans'.

It's 'My fellow Amurkins' or from Bush 'Murkins'.

It seems only we Limeys can say it correctly;)

Trump as a possible President of the USA prompts the comment attributed to a certain tennis player "You cannot be serious!"

I don't know if I am the only one who thinks so, but I found something about Cruz's face distinctly off-putting, almost as if it had been built up from spare parts that are almost, but not quite, entirely unlike different people - sort of two-faces mashed together - perhaps they helped him to claim he could see both sides to a story.

On my way to the farmacia to look for a Merkin. They were used by prostitutes in the old days when the treatment for syphilis caused pubic hair loss and they did not want their clients to know about it.

A merkin is a pubic wig. Merkins were originally worn by prostitutes after shaving their genitalia, and are now used as decorative items, erotic devices, or in films, by both men and women.

Perhaps that's what DT has on his head?
I have always said this Forum is highly educational as well as entertaining in other ways. Thankyou for enlarging my knowledge.:)
Just one point that has exercised my imagination: do you know how these 'merkins' were kept in place, as it were?
Ribbons, elastic, glue, blutak....I think we should be told.

Also..how did you come to know all this???

Can you imagine if it suddenly fell off at an inopportune moment?
