    Ha! Finally...the two unfunny wannabe political commentator hacks together. Would have loved John Oliver to say Boris Johnson will never be the prime minister of Great Britain... go on Boris! Do it! Do it! You won't win we just want you to run! 😂😂😂

    I got to the 3 minute mark and realised we had two staunch Lefties out to fabricate a vision of our (now) new PM for their partisan American Democrat audience. Boris (unlike the REAL clown in the White House) was a brilliant scholar who won scholarships to Eton and then Oxford Uni where he excelled and was best in his years. Boris Johnson has more ability in his left toenail (seeing as the host sought to bring the talk to that inane level) than these two clowns have in their whole bodies. trump of course pales into insignificance compared to Johnson in intelligence, academic ability let alone use of language. How many books have these 'experts written'? I doubt they have 10% the depth of knowledge of their own countries compared to Johnson's knowledge of world history.
    Boris Johnson uses clever humour (obviously too clever for these two) to make and emphasise a point. Of course Americans really never understand British humour and even the ex Brit John Oliver seems too dim to understand. But I guess he is playing to the people who pay his wages. Fair enough.

    And my last comment to Mr Oliver is that it is (now) going just fine here. We have at last fronted up the EU and they are being shown for the autocratic morons they are. Johnson (unlike Theresa May) has laid down the gauntlet of negotiating a real deal and they chickened out. We WILL leave the EU on 31st October with or without a deal. SIMPLE BLOODY FACT as it is enshrined in UK Law in two Statutes. And the Remainer Parliament that has sought to betray and defy the British Electorate that made that decision in 2016 can do nothing to stop it. So blow your Leftie Socialist Remainer trumpets all you like - We, the quiet majority, will have our decision delivered as it should have been on March 29th. The UK will be a free nation contrary to what Obama and dear Hilary wanted. So suck it up and get used to it Democrats. Oh and btw never ever lecture us in the UK about Irish terrorism. You lot funded it for 30 years until you experienced terrorism yourselves on 9 / 11. We know what the GFA means and intends and we will NEVER breach that Agreement. So block a trade deal if that is what you want but just remember which country is the biggest inward investor into the USA and which country is the place of choice for US foreign investment.

      @ChaoticDoll That was very nearly clever. But not quite. Once again we see the art of deflection demonstrated by someone irked at the truth so they attack the person not what was written or the views expressed. Its what Lefties always do and they think its 'really clever'. Whatever ...
      But I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt if I was Prime Minister Old Son I would be doing exactly what Johnson is doing have no fear about that.

    The difference between Boris and Trump is that Boris has a dumb/eccentric persona, but is smarter than people realise, and has a way with people. He has managed to avoid getting backstabbed, and while he is being laughed at he (1) became the first conservative lord mayor of London and then (2) became Prime Minister.
    Trump however, isn't pretending to be dumb, he actually is.

    • jckgrim51
      jckgrim51 2 days ago

      @Purplox Sweet Jesus! I looked it up and by golly, it's actually the opposite of what you are suggesting. I mean the exact opposite of what you are claiming, crazy right!?!?! I mean with a few searches and clicks here and there I found exactly what you were saying, but the opposite. Pages and pages supporting Trump's anti-racist positions and overwhelming record of success while in office. I mean his prison reform released a lot of wrongfully accused people, who happened to be black. Yeah that is the opposite of what a racist would do that along with his many other accomplishments. I encourage everyone to look up the man's record and determine for themselves the actions that define men and not the words they joke about with.

    • jckgrim51
      jckgrim51 2 days ago

      ​@Purplox again you haven't provided anything but opinions, subjective opinions then telling me to look up supporting facts on my own to support your claims and thank you, rather just break down your mediocre accusations towards the man.

      1."Racist flair ups", hows it a flair up if it's one individual acting this way while the entire country is condemning that single person's actions. No one is celebrating or supporting the incident in El Paso...President himself condemn the action... "Racist flair ups" from one single event caused by one person that no one is publicly supporting and was condemned by Trump there after, doesn't support your claim that Trump is contributing to how individuals violently act. You're also nit picking crimes to prove your point while disregarding others that happened over the same weekend by another individual who was a democratic supporter. It would be bigotry to assume the entire democratic party or its leaders support that individual man's actions, which is entirely separate from their ideals or what they represent. Right? If you can't get passed this then you are a bigot and need some self reflecting.

      2. The rest of your comment is a run on complaint that have no basis in facts. I mean where's your quotes, exact lines and where he said them and to what regard did he say it to suggest / support your claim he's racist, lies or is dumb? You can't it appears and can only refer to these mediocre complaints.

      You come across as a Bot/NPC/Puppet considering you have no original ideas or support to your claims and telling me to look it up... lol not how this work and anyone else looking in on this conversation can see you're running on talking points that have no basis to support them. Example "He held back bills that were popular at the time to pass Bill's that werent (the wall) and shut down the entire government." -You. This is an opinion and an incorrect one as the majority/all of his voters agree on his build a wall policies which he ran on during his election. So maybe not "popular" to you but it was to his supporters... Additionally government shutdowns happen, happened during Obama's term...so0 idk how this contributes to racism or stupidity...

      "He fed an NFL team hamburgers because of the shutdown instead of postponing or something." or something? lol NPC showing with these half ass talking points. What's this have to do with anything? You are complaining about his management style while ignoring his success. Essentially you are complaining about a man's sock color and how he put it on while ignoring the accomplishments he performs during the day while wearing said socks. WHO GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HIS SOCKS.

    • Purplox
      Purplox 3 days ago

      @jckgrim51 just look up any of what he says and take ideas from multiple sources and then shape your opinion on the matter, you shouldnt instantly make an opinion on the topic after reading one site or hearing one broadcast. Good God America, you are the problems you have.

    • Purplox
      Purplox 3 days ago

      @jckgrim51 how about his constant racist flair ups that are increasing tension across the country, as in el Paso.
      How about his constant denial of policy to protect American voting systems from hackers.
      What about the fact he CONSTANTLY LIES.
      If these dont seem dumb then how about this:
      He constantly admits that his views are shaped by the television.
      He constantly states that all news media that doesnt praise him is wrong.
      He held back bills that were popular at the time to pass Bill's that werent (the wall) and shut down the entire government.
      He fed an NFL team hamburgers because of the shutdown instead of postponing or something.
      Need anything else?

I mean if a dumb person lowers unemployment, raise the market and reform the criminal justice system... then I can’t wait for retardation to become literal most epic thing to be. I’m still waiting for someone to produce facts to their bias claims and name calling but only met with more subjective feelings that is microscopic to what the person is.

      @J. L. American Liberals do Identity politics 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Policy is somewhere 4th. Virtue signal like crazy based on race and gender but won't debate actual class-based policy which affects everybody. American Liberals are just want to be popular and still blame others for wanting to be more popular, instead of just debating policy. In short: They do not debate policy in debt, just childish one liners, identity politics and one liners.

    I think Trump is ok- a lot smarter than he comes across. Everyone underestimates him but after years of watching The Apprentice I could tell he's a legend when it comes to negotiations and finding the flaws in deals. I think he'll go down as one of the best Presidents the States has ever had. All the retards out there that judge everyone on how fancy their vocabulary is have no clue what makes for real brainpower.
    Boris on the other hand, I haven't seen much of him but he strikes me as a bit of a blue-blood dolt, albeit a passionate one, and I don't think he lacks the flash Trump has to win people's trust ad get them behind him. He's not a negotiator but a public schoolboy with a bit of swagger that can probably recite Shakespear in Latin, and would do alright on University Challenge, but he won't shake the ground like Trump has. We'll see.
