Look, haven't you ever had too much caffeine and then got pretty drunk, then it lasted for like 4.5 years? Sure, everyone has!

Not really an accurate summation of the article, but hey, I guess it's got its own narrative charm if you want to ignore TFA entirely...

Dr Biden and Mr. Orangehyde.

I don't blame Europe, I wouldn't trust ourselves either.

Until we can show the world that Trump was an aberration that we've taken steps to avoid in the future, we aren't getting back more than a token of what he trashed.

Honestly, I'd be shocked if we ever got our global standing back. It's going to be China's Century and there is very little we can do to prevent that. Trump farked us royally in every way that mattered and that damage will probably remain unprepared for the remainder of our lifetimes.

I'll let the usual suspects chime in to tell us how this is really all the Democrats' fault though.

You know, our lowered reputation is actually the fault of democrats.

Good.

America is only a world leader in incarceration, obesity, and mass delusion.

We claim to be free, but have one of the least democratic governments that the term can be applied to.

People in other countries are right and correct not to respect us.

Noticeably F.A.T.: Until we can show the world that Trump was an aberration that we've taken steps to avoid in the future, we aren't getting back more than a token of what he trashed.


And there is no sign of Trump(ism) going away any time soon.

Because we're better than Putin? When we don't have a Putin sub in office, I mean...

I mean...that's all I got right now, to be honest.

That time will never happen.  Trump was not an aberration.  Trump was the predictable outcome of 40 years of requblican theology/policy mashup.  Trump was the harbinger of things to come.

We are never getting that standing back.   You can't put that kind of toothpaste back in the tube.
 
2021-06-07 3:42:21 PM  
I was told that Trump was going to be tough on opponents and renegotiate all of our deals to bring back American pride.

It's going to take a long time to get rid of the stink that pile of shiat left behind ..

The only time it's acceptable to go to an American fast food restaurant in Europe is if it's late at night, you're drunk and/or stoned, and it's the only place serving hot food.

"On the eve of President Joe Biden's trip to Europe, the survey by the German Marshall Fund and the Bertelsmann Foundation said he had not won back the standing of the United States as it was before Covid-19 struck. China's reputation had risen slightly."

Yeah, that tells us plenty about the people being surveyed. Brutally covering up an outbreak until it becomes an undeniable pandemic is apparently a "plus" in plenty of people's books.

It's also amusing as fark to see Turks thinking we shouldn't be involved in the defense and security of Europe.

Good....then we can pull back our foreign aid.
 
2021-06-07 3:45:18 PM  
That compares with the perception within the United States that US influence abroad has risen, the survey found.

What the f*ck are we smoking??
 
2021-06-07 3:45:23 PM  
Yeah, but Trump increased our standing among dictators and enemies!  That counts for something, right?
 
2021-06-07 3:46:02 PM  
1. Can't blame 'em.
2. Boris Johnson was nothing to write home about, so let's not get holier than thou.
 
2021-06-07 3:46:02 PM  
Wait, I thought Trump will be reinstated in August. Or become Speaker of the House and impeach Biden.
Either way I bet he makes harassing phone calls to Merkel and Macron daily from his replica Oval Office at Mar a lago.

Well, Europeans love a well made concentration camp, that artisanal craftsmanship that only slave laborers can provide.

News flash, there are stupid people everywhere, just not in the US.

I have a feeling it will go up after time.

Them respecting China more is stupid, but I would guess it's because they are giving out their crappy vaccine.

Trump was the naked truth of america, where as our normal political system tries to put forth a veneer or respectability. The truth is we've been a country of "I got mine, go fark yourself" for a long while, and additionally, a country of, "oh your stuff looks pretty nice, allow us to freedom it". Trump just removed all of the political bullshiat rhetoric and literally manifested himself into the countries Id. I hope in the long run Trump exposing us like that forces us to overcorrect and be better.

kregh99: 1. Can't blame 'em.
2. Boris Johnson was nothing to write home about, so let's not get holier than thou.


Let's also not dignify that sort of fallacy. Remember when "Saddam Hussein tortures people, too" was foisted off as a real defense of war crimes?

Remember when Trump said "Stop hatin' on Putin! We've interfered with other countries' elections!"?

As if it's a debate over who holds the moral high ground, and not about who's trying to undermine American democracy.

America holds no moral high ground. We don't object to Russian interference on moral principles. We object to it because they are hurting America.

That's also why I object to the GQP.

I doubt it. Over 70 million adults really went for that shiat. Finally being able to act out what they had been keeping hidden in their diseased little brains. They're not going to change and it doesn't look like they have any interest in pretending to be decent people.

Allies should be pressuring Biden to do what's right, protect democracy and do everything in his power to prevent a fascist takeover of the US.

Otherwise, he, too, can fark off.

Friends don't let friends off the hook.

Well, gosh, maybe because anyone with a functioning brain understands that there is a massive difference between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Just a guess though.

I wrote the following almost 2 years ago.  Nice to be proven right.

This is why when people say "Nothing matters" Americans should take it seriously.  Because the rest of the world finally realizes that the US can't be trusted.

Even if Trump and his gang are taken out of the White House in cuffs and locked up forever... it doesn't matter.  Even if your next President is such a great person that they make Obama look like a drooling simpleton... it doesn't mater.

Because the rest of the world has finally woken up to the fact that most 'Real Americans' are stupid and selfish.  In 8, maybe 10, years all of this will be forgotten and you will elect another Trump, or Bush, or Reagan and it will all start again.

You are being controlled by people who think only in terms of the next fiscal quarter and they are putting stooges in that are only concerned with their own position, perks, power and personal financial health.

So the rest of the world is moving on.  New alliances are forming, new countries are stepping into leadership roles and America will be left behind. There is nothing you can do to stop this because it is too late.  The rest of the world has had it with your psychoses and is preparing to get along without you.

So good luck.  You will need it.
