    What the hell?

    A Ch.Ch. mosque survivor is thanking the Trump for his support and for standing up for humanity. This is the president who claimed all Muslims are terrorists and wanted to send them back from whence they came.

    Trump’s latest attack on Ilnan Omar:

    He apparently also claimed she was married to her brother. A ‘vicious’ lie.

    I hope someone plays the link to Farid Ahmed.

    Hi Anne, I understand your "what the hell comment".   But actually I thought the guy should be up for diplomat of the year.

    Trump is a mega narcissist And what works with narcissists is being flattered.   And if it works that through flattery Trump starts saying decent things about muslims and softens his stance, then I am all for it. So if it works, good.  

    But of course best option is for Trump to go.  Please.

    I would normally agree with you ankerawshark if I thought there was any chance of it happening. Have a look at the second clip. He is playing to his audience I know but it doesn't auger well.

    The lunacy of a media that does not understand 'value'

    The Crusader's thumped a team 66 – 0 in one of it's last games before it's latest super whateve win.

    The Black Cap's cricket world cup tournament was anything but a hole in the head to providing outstanding sporting value for the game, & generally to NZ.
