Worlds attitudes to Trump

This probably doesn’t really matter much, except perhaps to someone with a big ego and an obsession with being seen as popular, but here is how parts of the world outside the US see Trump.

    I think Pete, that Trump really only worries about being seen as popular in the USA.

    Going by recent by-election wins in the US it appears that theUS voting public don’t have an issue with Trump. (Not to mention the drop in unemployment figures in the US over the past 6 months)

    Given the multitude of disparaging stories the international msm have manufactured and published as a support of their leftist colleagues in the US it is no great surprise that people outside the US don’t like Trump.

    Though Trump has made mistakes over the last 5 months, he has done surprisingly well considering the level of vitriol thrown at him from the leftist msm, democrats, and every social justice warrior noddy.

    Trump knows that the ‘full retard’ shown by left has played against them – they are now mostly irrelevant as far as the voting public in the US go.

    John Key and Australia’s Malcolm Turnbull both liked Obama and they seemed to share the same philosophy. After last election Key said (to a fawning John Campbell):

    ““Yes I want to leave the country in better condition than I found it and if theres something (I genuinely beleive) It would be lifting our confidence to a certain degree about how we see our selves in the world and what we think we are capable of achieving. Now I think individually there is masses of ambition that sits out there there but can we actually take that and convert that to take the opportunity .
    And I always thought what was happening in the opposition of politics (of course they would oppose National, that’s their job actually apart from everything else) but it was a bit negative about our place in the world. So we played a bit about whether people coming here was a good or bad thing whether people should invest here was a good or bad thing, or whether we have a trade agreement with parts of Asia was a good or bad thing, but actually in my mind, the reason that I want to say yes to those things is because they are the opportunities that reflect our opportunities to both get wealthier (which is all about what you can do with that money) and then ultimately the opportunities for Kiwis. I’d like New Zealanders to feel (after my time as Prime Minister) they have become more confident outward looking nation more multicultural.”
    ………
    If you are the whore everyone likes you.

      he forgot to add,…’was turning NZ into a tax haven..a good thing or a bad..thing…was making NZ’ers tenants in their own country a good thing or a bad ..thing,was introducing Stasi like spying laws,a good thing or a bad..thing’…could be here..all day.

      • Sound bytes. Point your adoring public to policy Key oversaw that was tax-haven centred or that he was “introducing Stasi like” laws.

    What would the result have been for China?

      • Baizuo has basically become the go to word for Chinese social media users, who want to trash other people in online debates. It’s also frequently used to make light of what is viewed in China, as the inherent weakness of western democracies.

        “It might not be an easy task to define the term, for as a social media buzzword and very often an instrument for ad hominem attack, it could mean different things for different people. A thread on “why well-educated elites in the west are seen as naïve “white left” in China” on Zhihu, a question-and-answer website said to have a high percentage of active users who are professionals and intellectuals, might serve as a starting point.

        The question has received more than 400 answers from Zhihu users, which include some of the most representative perceptions of the ‘white left’. Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are hypocritical humanitarians who advocate for peace and equality only to “satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority”; they are “obsessed with political correctness” to the extent that they “tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism”; they believe in the welfare state that “benefits only the idle and the free riders”; they are the “ignorant and arrogant westerners” who “pity the rest of the world and think they are saviours”.

              When nothing else works, brute force & ignorance always serves me well.

            She went on to become one of these, er, performers. I won’t be posting vids of SJW, and obviously mentally deranged liberals again.. This clip has cured me of my obsession.

    There is something very odd with this survey. The descending unity of every country to each subject is astonishing. Unless the survey only had one question combining all the issues i.e. do you think Trump is “arrogant. intolerant and dangerous”

      They’re ranked by descending arrogant score, and they don’t have descending unity – see Indonesia.

      Some correlation between the similar terms is to be expected. If I think someone is arrogant, I’m also likely to think they’re dangerous.
