Trump Named ‘Loser of the Year’ By European Magazine
It's no secret. I don't like Donald Trump. I think he's an embarrassment to the United States and the office of the President. Unfortunately we're stuck in a spot where if you don't like Donald Trump, you have to be a socialist from the extreme left. Well, I'm not. I proudly vote for all parties in elections because I think aligning with just one party and voting based on that is lazy.
Over in Europe, they aren't big fans of Trump either. The German magazine Der Spiegel recently wrote a 3,000-word article about Trump being the 'Loser of the Year'. The article was titled Der Verlierer des Jahres, which translates to The Loser of the Year. A couple of reporters, Roland Nelles and Ralf Neukirch, pinpointed a bunch of scandals that took place under Trump's administration. Here are some excerpts from the article, translated into English.
He refuses to admit defeat. Instead, he speaks of massive electoral fraud, although there is no evidence for it. The whole thing is not surprising. Trump’s presidency ends as it began. Without decency and without dignity.
The go on to talk about how divided we are as a country.
The country is more divided than ever since the times of the civil war. This is not a by-product of Trump’s politics, it is their goal. The permanent conflict is part of his strategy. As the first head of state in recent US history, he does not even give the impression that he is the president of all Americans.
And they also go into the conspiracy theories and how Trump is able to mislead his base.
In fact, Trump is doing much better than generally expected. Why? Because he manages to isolate some of his followers from reality. Many people believe the lie that the Democrats are electoral fraud. They are convinced that the traditional media (“fake news”) lie and not their president. And they follow Trump and his conspiracy fantasies that China developed the virus to weaken America.
If you are a Trump fan, and believe that what he is doing is okay, let me ask you this... How would you react if Biden was doing the same thing? Stick to just that question, and try to answer it. I have yet to have a Trump supporter legitimately answer that question that they would be okay with Biden crying foul the way Trump is.
