What's perhaps more baffling is how such a man got into a position to run for office in the first place.

What an extraordinary question!

Of course I care! I care with a passion and sorrow you could not possibly understand.

I am utterly ashamed to belong to a nationality that stands by and does nothing for fear of offending a nation that has one of the very worst human rights records.

I am not interested in scoring political points.

Folks, the book to read in regard to the Bruised Orange (with apologies to John Prine) is "House of Trump House of Putin" by Craig Unger.

It's a truly jaw dropping exposé of Trump's extensive links to Russian Mafia figures, money launderers, gangsters etc, etc

Sadly, I don't know any different. There are very few examples in history where one nation came to the rescue for humanitarian reasons and I can not think of even one right now. We only really get involved if it affects us directly (or try to get involved rather unsuccessfully like Syria shows) and Yemen simply does not. That is unfortunately a cold fact.

I don't know about the Bruised Orange, but here's the Curious Orange from the late 1990s:

Well, because he lied to everybody. To the gun-rights supporters, to the college educated, to the evangelical christians, especially to those in the rust-belt who have been out of work because of advances in technology. He told them all what they wanted to hear, he lied to all of them.

What should be most disturbing are the lengths that his supporters will go to justify what he says. This fool will be out of office eventually, but the 35+ million who think like he does will still be around, and they will have to vote for somebody. Which leaves open the possibility of another incompetent, self-interested, habitual liar will run for office.
Americans are embarrassed around the world by what they picked for a President.

Indeed, Jon, but I'm baffled as to why/how the "system" allowed this loon even to become a candidate.

In the US, anyone with money can put their name in the hat. They don't have to have any experience. Just say the right things, tell them all what they want to hear and someone will vote for you.
Like, telling Miners "We are going to bring coal back", as Miners are out of work because the mines are all closing.

Who's burning coal these days?
When was the last time anyone in the US came home to a coal fire?
Ridiculous.

Trump isn't creating a market for coal, so it isn't "coming back", again, he lied.
Trump loves the "poorly educated"...

It's easy to see why, he can get them to believe anything. And, this is a large portion of his base.

And now the Welsh Carrot wants to launch a DoJ investigation of a newspaper that upset him.
