Ok this is silly. MAYBE it's because black people historically have high degree of religiosity and this in and of itself is a primary reason we're underrepresented (yes I'm black) in the skeptic community. MAAAYBE. Religiosity doesn't lend itself to skepticism. Implying it's the result of the desire of the attendees is silly. I must've missed the "no coloreds" clause..

All the wrong criteria for being 'better'. A good president should be a man of the people - a racist, misogynist, lying narcissist who projects all his faults onto others - just like us.

Trump was objectively better than any other candidate (including Hillary). No one else could have convinced the Deplorables to out themselves. No one else would have shown us the depths of depravity that Republicans would plunge to. No one else would have made a mockery of the legislative process and openly questioned our right to democracy and free speech. No one else could have turned the US into the laughing stock it is today, with the promise of even more to come.

Yes, for those us who hate America, Trump was definitely the better choice!

Oh I agree! Trump is the perfect US leader...if you are not American and your nation is in trade competition with the USA. He has been handed his own arse on a plate so many times and yet he keeps on coming back for repeat embarrassments. Any tinpot country, let alone the G20 nations, can make advantage over the USA just by pretending to kow-tow to Trump personally.

Sanders or Clinton would have been MUCH more difficult and tougher to deal with. They have brains and experience, and understand US statecraft and trade policies.

I frighten myself. My better half is fearful of the damage Trump and his cabal of boot-lickers is doing to the wider world. But the evil imp within me delights in the thought of a right royal descent into hell for the US for their collective idiocy in hoisting to power such a manifestly destructive p***k as The Donald. While the MAGA crowd chants, "America; ****** yah!", I retort, "America, ****** you!"

All the while caring for and desiring the best for my friends to my immediate south.
