From an email a good friend shared with me:

QUOTE

PRICELESS! the quintessential pronouncement on Trump.

Someone on Quora asked "Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?" Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England wrote this magnificent response:
 
A few things spring to mind.
Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.
So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.
Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing - not once, ever.
I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility - for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman.
But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is - his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.
Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.
And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults - he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.
There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface.
Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront.
Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul.
And in Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist.
Trump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that.
He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat.
He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.
And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully.
That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead.
There are unspoken rules to this stuff - the Queensberry rules of basic decency - and he breaks them all. He punches downwards - which a gentleman should, would, could never do - and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless - and he kicks them when they are down.
So the fact that a significant minority - perhaps a third - of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he says, and then think 'Yeah, he seems like my kind of guy’ is a matter of some confusion and no little distress to British people, given that:
Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and mostly are.
You don't need a particularly keen eye for detail to spot a few flaws in the man.
This last point is what especially confuses and dismays British people, and many other people too; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss.
After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of s**t. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum.
God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid.
He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart.
In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws - he would make a Trump.
And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish:
'My God… what… have… I… created?
If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.

Que82 sits back and waits on the announcement that Neymar has been placed on the Sexual predator database. :nod:

If finding a  woman in her 20's attractive makes one a predator than every straight man is.


Maybe that is uncommon with the "bruhs" in the que dog circle eh? :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe:
Well it is uncommon for bruhs to go on dates with underage girls, it is uncommon for bruhs to fixate on light skin toothpicks, it is uncommon for bruhs to entertain having a relationship with gay men and transgenders, it is uncommon for bruhs to bring up porn on this website, it is uncommon for bruhs to be an african idiot.  Need I go on???? ::)

When have I ever entertained having a relationship with a man?

Transgendered individuals take on the gender they present.

Ques got low quality women from what I saw in the AUC, and there were some gay ones. If there was a light skin toothpick hoodrat around I wouldnt put it above a "bruh" to get at them, but Alphas usually got the cream of the crop of the women in the AUC. Sorry to tell you :shrug:

FAN, the shock value is gone. We talked about this years ago.  :nod:


I MISSED IT.  WHAT DID "OLD SPORT" HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT.  JUST CURIOUS?
He talked about me being a gay Que.  When I posted this he shut the heyal up real quick. :lol:

Another guy who noticed your homosexual tendencies?
:tiptoe: :tiptoe:

Sorry you in the closet alone. Remember, you are the gay rights superhero and the one who wants to screw a transgender.

It’s actually a good idea but Uncle Ben is incompetent.

Dr.Carson should never have been appointed to that agency, he's a doctor.
