Hooray for Trump

A British comedian tonight pointed out that,if Trump's election represents an insult to women,Muslims,gay people,and many others,it still represents a progressive step in that the US has given power to someone who is obviously crazy.A step forward in the normalisation of mental disorders?

Maybe it's because there's a "secret underground swell" of people who find jokes about people with mental disorders, slightly more distateful than the thought of Trump in the White House?


Just saying.....

Yes,you are right.I did think about that - but at the same time the joke is on him really and also on people who normally discriminate against people with mental health problems in the job market.Here,we have a man who has such a simplistic view of the solutions to major problems,who  has an inflated sense of his own importance,and such a lack of respect for others,that one might normally consider him to  be in need of some kind of therapy...........but instead he has been given a hugely important job in a very powerful country.


One way of coping with this is to laughingly see it as a step forward for the fight against discrimination - though,of course,it is totally the opposite of this.


Humour is a way to deal with distressing situations that we feel powerless to influence.


But I see your point totally.Normally,when I point out that jokes are sexist or racist or otherwise,I am told I have no sense of humour.sometimes,you can't win.


just saying....

Would be nice if some Americans jumped in and shared their thoughts on Trump being sworn in as the next President of the USA. Amazed on general lack of comments on this forum considering a perma tanned version of Darth Vader will soon be presiding over the Whate House!
