    I am happy to come out of the Trump closet and nail my colours to the mast. I would not have voted for Donald Trump and look on in disbelief at the manner in which he carries on.
    When the US electioneering was taking place in 2016, I felt Donald Trump presented like a cartoon character in The Simpsons or Family Guy. The false hair, the plastic wife, the name calling of opponents, the grandiose promises, etc. I'd chuckle away and think, "All good for a bit of a laugh." I thought everyone was in on the laugh.
    Then the American public went and elected him. Like the majority of NZ's I thought, "How could they possibly do that?" 
    Now I'm asking "What does it say about American's, that they could elect a President such as Donald Trump?" He's continued to call people names, to tweet unsubstantiated claims (basically to tell lies), to put his family in places of high office, etc. 
    For me, I feel NZ seriously needs to consider how closely we want to be aligned to a country with Donald Trump as their leader, knowing that the American people voted him into office.

    Thanks goodness that farce of a series is over. Two biggest decisions.
    1. Faumauinas tackle at the end of the 2nd Test. French Ref says "I know it was an accident, but I must penalise you."
    2. Lions prop catches ball in an offside position at end of 3rd Test. French Ref says "I know it was an accident, but I must penalise you......no wait - lets scrum it."
    Lets get on with the NPC and have much less of the TMO.

    Yep been going up since 2011 Crusty. Most countries economies up in past few years. China has over 5% growth per annum I think I heard. What's that got to do with this thread?

    I think Aqua might be one of those British rugby writers using "irony", which they say us Kiwi's don't quite get.

    Slow motion replay makes it look like he's got so much time to consider his actions. In actual fact it's merely split second reaction in heat of game. He wouldn't have wrapped with the right arm, because that have meant tackling his team mate, so he braced. Still that doesn't matter these days. They don't try to guess what was intended, merely what occurred.
    No arms, shoulder hits head = Red Card.

    I'm no National supporter. Far from it, but I do find this Barclay affair to be a waste of talent. Given we all know that Politicians are dodgy liars, does a bright young up and comer, who might make a great contribution to running the country in the future, really need to resign over taping his worker and then lying about it? What's the problem here? He's a Politician isn't he? Say sorry and get back to work I say.

    That was a great Test match. Had a bit of everything really. Plenty of physical, top tries and not too much Ref. Loved it.

    What's old Trumpy been up to now. Haven't heard too much from him over the past week or so. Time for a 3am tweet I reckon. How's that wall coming along?

    If the Kiwi's had snorted up prior to the game they might have been more competitive.

    "Turned it off" - You fool Crusty. Once again your grizzliness has meant you've shot your self in the foot.
    Tigers came storming back from 30 points down to hit the front with 20 seconds (yes '20 seconds') to go. Freeo coach slams down the phone and leaves the coaches box.
    But wait - there's more. Umpires bounce gathered by Freeo, they kick inside the 50 - mark taken, siren sounds - Richmond fans stunned. Freeo veteran has the kick, after the siren to win the game. He goes back pulls up socks then comes in and buries it between the big sticks, like a true champion. Game of the season Crusty and by that stage you were watching Coronation Street replays.

    Oh dear Oh dear - President Trump is now in "Impeachment territory". What a shambles. Mr Putin is laughing away back in Moscow. It couldn't be going any better as far as he is concerned. The rest of the world are shrugging their shoulders and going, "We could see this coming, why were the American voters so blind back in November."
    You reap what you sow America - you schmucks.

    There is no point in Snowflakes debating any list of achievements provided by the Acid Rain crew. Any counter argument provided is immediately dismissed as being based on 'fake news' pedalled by a lying media.
    This is precisely how Donald Trump operates. It goes, "I am 100% correct and anyone who argues otherwise is basing their argument on 'Fake News', pedalled by a lying media."

    OK, I got that. Anything negative I read about President Trump is "Fake news."
    What about anything positive I read? Is that also "Fake news"; or is that all ok to believe?

    That Blues v Hurricanes match over Easter was an absolute cracker. Not to much wrong with Super Rugby when they put on that sort of a game.

    Donald has stumbled upon the fact that many Americans enjoy seeing their country flexing their muscle and delivering a good bombardment. Not only do they enjoy it, but it diverts their attention away from shady dealings with the Russians. So now expect to see less of his "Keep America out of Syria/Nato etc" rhetoric and more of "watch out or you'll be next".
