No time for Trump, no time for anyone who supports him...... but this just looks like a buncj of morons high on hero-worship rather than fascism. Trump and his followers haven't got the brains to be fascists.....

Trump himself is banned from all the major social networks. He posts on his own 'Truth Social' platform these days, but people continue to discuss him elsewhere.

Here he is yesterday, having a delusion about the Westminster Abbey seating plan...

Trump would have been nowhere near the front! I think he forgets that the Commonwealth countries were attending the funeral of their queen, and therefore sat nearer than say, countries that had fought a war of independence to reject British rule.

I say "he forgets...", but I think the reality is just that he saw an opportunity to have a dig at Biden and wave his "I would have done it better" flag again. No actual thought beyond that.

You do him too much credit to say "think". Trump works on pure bile and divisiveness, driving his fantasist supporters to ever more dangerous delusions. But then...... we see similar fantasists in the UK too (though Donald certainly trumps any rival!)

I'm sure the presidents/prime ministers of Poland, Czech Republic and Switzerland that were seated around Mr and Mrs Biden will be delighted at their nations being described as third world.

Jury finds Trump guilty on all 34 charges of falsifying business records! :thumbup:
Donald Trump has been convicted of falsifying business records in the first criminal trial of a former president. It is the first time in history that a former US president has been convicted of a crime.

The 12 jurors deliberated for two days before reaching a unanimous verdict. The court heard from 22 witnesses over six weeks, including Stormy Daniels, whose alleged sexual encounter with Trump was at the centre of this case.

Trump stood accused of concealing a payment made by his former lawyer to buy the ex-adult film star’s silence shortly before the 2016 election. He had pleaded not guilty and claimed without evidence that the prosecution was politically motivated.
Sentencing will take place on 11 July at 10:00 local time (15:00 BST) and the court will order a probation report for Trump, Merchan says.

No legal reason why he should not be apparently. The Republicans have still yet to nominate him officially as their candidate. I suppose there could be a hiccup in that, ( although it is looking unlikely) He is likely to appeal. The appeal is not going to be heard very quickly. He could well be President by the time it happens. Could he as President give himself a pardon?

The best thing would be if the Republican party did not accept him as a candidate and took on Nicky Hailey instead. All of this is just one big mess and VERY VERY uncharted territory. The state of politics in the USA is just one big laughing stock. I find it hard to believe that it has ever got this far, or that it has come down to an election between these two old sad men. Surely there are better in that vast country.

I read that he theoretically could for federal crimes but not state convictions, so that excludes this NY case of falsifying business records.
