The reporter mocking thing is very old news from months before the 2016 election. I know it came up here back then and I VERY likely said I'd still vote for him. My stand has not changed one iota.
You should know by now that I can't be shamed into doing or not doing anything.

So long as you know "what" you are voting for. You have that freedom of choice.

People can vote even if they are absolutely clueless and like a candidate solely for his or her dimples.

I remember a republican voter in 2016 reporting that the main reason she voted for Trump was because first lady Melania would add more class to the White House and that she thought Michelle Obama looked like a "gorilla in heels" (her words).

We are not talking about intellectual giants but I keep being reminded that half of college educated women voted for Trump in 2016 despite his vocal misogyny.

It always puzzles me why non-Americans sweat over our presidents and moreso our domestic affairs when you don't have a vote.
We don't feel your pain.

The same people who comment on every other country's internal issues that they have awareness of? I'd imagine it's because they don't consider America exceptionally beyond criticism and actually have empathy for the citizens harmed by terrible decisions.

Ironically at times it seems like non-Americans have more empathy for those Americans than their fellow Americans have for them. :nerdy:

Well that's one I haven't heard. The one I did hear from a dude I know IRL is that Michelle is a man in drag. I aint making this up.

I wonder how many pictures and video I could post here of Biden sniffing women and kids like an old hound and having his paws all over them.

I hope the same logic can be applied to my country. Although I don't need its actual results.

I’m always interested in what nonAmericans think. We are all human.

Are we likely to fix anything by commenting on it here?

To some extent, yes it is mildly interesting. I will say that it doesn't annoy me as much as it used to. It's almost cute now, like watching little kids pretending to drive a parked car.

No, but not every single conversation has to be directed towards finding solutions, sometimes people just need empathy or to be reminded that reasonable people actually agree with them.
Further, there's nations that have only recently succeeded in overturning antiabortion laws and they might have useful advice.

To some extent 'fix' inherently oversimplifies the issue. Any solution will always be imperfect and face criticism. Being able to compare how different regulations play out helps with understanding what policies would be most effective, in order to compare against public opinion, in order to determine strategy.

Some on here are more knowledgeable about American politics than the average American.
