This is a video from 2017, but if you watch the videos on the right, you see a scary man, indeed. He comes across as unhinged. But that seems to be an inherent, permanent state, not an induced temporary state that will resolve itself. (We all get angry from time to time, after all, and we all look ugly when we’re angry.)
There is another video about this book. I missed this at the time, though I had heard about it.
It must be horrible (very hard) to be Donald Trump.
And this is brand-new:
Then I think back to a video fragment I saw on Twitter earlier this week, about Boris Johnson and Trump, with Boris Johnson’s body language appearing to speak volumes for him. He wanted to distance himself from Trump, and also felt that his hands were tied.
Boris Johnson, folks.
(Who’s just stepped on the British, kicked them in the bollocks and kicked against their shins, communicating to them that he does not care what they want and think and need. Which has made many of them so very furious and concerned – Leavers as well as Remainers – that he’s now really mobilized them to stand up against what is essentially tyranny.)
Could any of us have seen either of this coming? In our wildest dreams?
Can any of us predict how all of this will end?
If you’re British, you will want to watch this next video as well because Boris de Pfeffel Johnson and what’s he’s done come up too near the end, in no uncertain words.
Boris has kicked the Brits in the bollocks and against their shins – and they’re furious.
“‘Stop The Coup’ protests kick off across the UK
Demonstrators gather in cities around the UK to protest Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament for 23 working days before the UK is due to leave the EU on October 31.“
Lots of people in many places, even in Southampton.
And then there is this.
It’s rather ironic that Brexiteers have been using words like sovereignty a lot (even though the Brexit documentation clearly states that there has never been a loss of sovereignty within the EU context, that it was merely the case that people felt that way) and then do a 180 degree and take it away from their own Parliament and their own citizens.
In Portsmouth, “Stop the Coup” and “Brexit Now” protesters encountered each other 3 days ago. There is a video with the word “clash” in the title, but there is nothing in the video that suggests that there was a clash. (Portsmouth has the occasional far right demonstration. It does occasionally cause problems.)
If you need some distraction from the “Bollocks to Boris” sentiment, watch this (and keep in mind that a Category-4 hurricane (Dorian) is moving toward Florida and cross your fingers that it will fizzle out before it reaches the coastline – does not happen often as hurricanes gain strength over water and fizzle out over land – or veers off and/or stays parallel to the coast – which does happen):
