    Surprised he didn't talk about the insane amount of stimulus and debt taken on to fuel the expansion. The next global crisis is likely to come from China as a result of the preceding sentence.

    Our President is arguably the best thing to happen to Xi Jinping in the last few years.
    As embarrassing as he is lol he's definitely, "making China great again."
    Besides being a TOTAL fraud, So far, in just over two years in office, he has already;
    ▫️Implemented and enforces a border policy that literally puts kids in cages.
    ▫️Overrode American National Security decision to give security clearance to his daughter and son-in-law.
    ▫️Repeatedly humps the American flag.
    ▫️Actually called Nazi's, after a fatal domestic terrorism incident; "Very fine people."
    ▫️After promising to do so on multiple occasions, he STILL hasn't released tax returns.
    ▫️He began his 2016 political career by starting a racist conspiracy about the first African American President's birth certificate.
    ▫️Thought Frederick Douglass was still alive.
    ▫️Tried, multiple times, to ban an entire religious group, Muslims, from entering the United States.
    ▫️Gave a speech about a sex boat to boy scouts.
    ▫️He ruined Kanye.
    ▫️He has continuously sided with dictators over his own US intelligence agencies.
    ▫️He spelled, "Melania," wrong.
    ▫️He threatened to jail his political opponents.
    ▫️He is beloved by White Supremacists, White Nationalists, and Neo-Nazis. {Exhibit A; This Video}
    ▫️He is surrounded by convicted criminals.
    ▫️He fathered Don Jr.
    ▫️He is a highly public and well documented pathological liar. {Over 10,000 since Jan 20th 2017 as of April 30th 2019}
    ▫️He couldn't remember the words to, "God Bless America"
    ▫️He CURRENTLY faces 19+ credible sexual assault litigations.
    ▫️He threw paper towels at hurricane victims.
    ▫️He paid to silence a Porn Star and a Playboy model with whom he had affairs two weeks before his election. {spending a total of $130,000 each to avoid publication and electoral transparency.}
    ▫️He regularly insults John McCain while still refusing to say an unkind word about Vladimir Putin.
    ▫️He regularly insults long-time US allies.
    ▫️He publicly attacks private American citizens on Twitter.
    ▫️He publicly insults and undermines his own US Intelligence Agencies.
    ▫️He publicly denigrates Gold Star families.
    ▫️He gets in Twitter fueds with Saturday Night Live.
    ▫️He is currently under State and Federal investigation for violating multiple campaign finance laws.
    ▫️He claimed to be, "very stable genius."
    ▫️He called African Nations, "Shithole countries."
    ▫️He buried the taxpayer Government report on Climate Change.
    ▫️He endorsed alleged child molester Roy Moore.
    ▫️He can't close an umbrella.
    ▫️He regularly calls the Constitutionally protected Free Press, "the enemy of the people."
    ▫️He claimed, without evidence, that 5 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election, and that all of those illegal votes were for his opponents.
    ▫️He was recorded, on tape, bragging that, because he's famous, he can get away with molesting/sexually assaulting Women.
    ▫️ After more than two years in office, he STILL hasn't put forth nominees for over half of the Senate confirmed; Cabinet, Government, or Executive Branch positions.
    ▫️After agreeing publicly to sign a bill that would add 1.5 Billion dollars for border security, he watched backlash from Fox "News," Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter and the very next morning reversed and refused to sign, causing the Federal Government to shut down for OVER a month.
    I mean, Whether Trump's acts were, "criminal," or not, whether his conduct regarding Obstruction of Justice rose to the, "criminal," legal standard or not, and whether his Campaign's contacts with Russians during the Campaign were sufficiently illicit, or not, to rise to the level of a, "Criminal Conspiracy," they are without QUESTION; Dishonest, Unethical, Immoral, and Unpatriotic, and should be condemned by EVERY American.
    But, really.
    There's literally hundreds of reasons to objectively consider Trump a complete disaster every American should be at the very least embarrassed about, but some comments are just too, "wordy," lol

    I looked up, "Optimism," lol in the Oxford English Dictionary and it read;
    ▫️Mid 18th century from French optimisme
    ▫️Hopefulness and confidence about the future or the success of something.
    'the talks had been amicable and there were grounds for optimism’
    ▫️The doctrine, especially as set forth by Leibniz, that this world is the best of all possible worlds.
    ‘His early optimism was soon overshadowed by a radical doctrine of grace.’
    ‘Candide, Voltaire's critique of optimism, is itself an ineliminably upbeat book.’
    ▫️The belief that good must ultimately prevail over evil in the universe.
    (what's the comments section for lol if not shit like that, eh?!😂👍)

    What's the saddest part u have middle class parents with a typical.9-5 job with a kid, they just think it's so dandy (obviously u cant be 100% certain since saying u disagree in on camera probaly lowers your score) thinking it's a good way to automize cops jobs.

    Something I look forward to on every show is the obligatory picture of an adorable, innocent kid in a creepy situation. It's way better when it's over the top like this video, and that boy singing "Fuck the European Union!" Wouldn't you like to be that ten-year-old who gets to go to school and say, "Did you see me on TV? Yeah, I sang 'fuck' nine times in three minutes. How was your weekend?" Some cool parents out there. :)

    As always. Partial truths from a snake tongued rat. Trade war with China = BAD for China you purposefully dumb fuck. Trump sais EVERY politician is a friend and great.

    Prime minister May of Britain: tvclip.biz/video/Vo6nGm5K4Lk/video.html at 15:50 (who he hates)
    Kim Jong Un: tvclip.biz/video/j9oPaL4EsOg/video.html at 0:40 (who he called a small dick rocket man like a year back)
    Angela Merkel: tvclip.biz/video/OI3TSF8emZI/video.html (who he holds responsible for the destruction of Europe)
    Putin: you sheep have heard edited sound bites
    China: just heard it
    Justin Trudeau: tvclip.biz/video/a8RHXvRPLfw/video.html

    Literally anyone is a friend and a strong lead and great. It's called fucking diplomacy. You may think Trump sucks at it, but at least the guy is trying.

    I suspect this appraisal is biased. If you detailed what corporate entities do in the USA I think China may emerge on top ...morally that is. The US doesn't imprison people for their beliefs, like China, but for the color of their skin. China manipulates business deals ..big freaking deal!....what then do we make of US imperialism, invasion occupation of the middle east, vietnam, Iraq etc etc. One can go on and on, ...and Trump or the US is in no way in a position to call out China. Seriously John, (kiwi to pom) I think you're blind - for sure the US (meaning it's controlling military industrial complex - the corporations) is an order of magnitude the greater peril to the world than anything China does currently or has done. China of course is in this/acts for itself - as a nation - and probably has a mind to be a great nation, the US, is a cabal of astoundingly selfish interests - each of which will sell their grandmother if required (or find an african american grandmother to send in her stead...etc, you get the idea ...we live in western allied countries - it's almost impossible to see the US imperialism from within that world. But any fair examination surely paints the US as the thing to worry about.

    What’s really funny is that the US also has a permanent unelected government with its own media which controls the media narrative, the only difference is that most the US population is naive enough to believe the facade of democracy that hides it whereas China just openly says ‘yeah, we’re a one party state, deal with it.’

Oliver didn't mention Xi want to build a communism society with Chinese characters, the irony is they will run out of characters eventually. The words that are banned will outnumber the one in use.
