    No art thou Trump. Your faults are pretty bloody hard to miss. You are Picasso of pettiness; you are the Shakespeare of sh_t. Your faults are actually fractal:
    Your flaws have flaws. Impossible to read a single tweet, as you speaks you stare deep into the abyss.

    Your a fat white slugg. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege. Most unforgivable, your a bully. Except, among bullies; you transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead. But No Queensberry rules of basic decency – and he breaks them all. He punches downwards every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable and invisible.

    Brits like a laugh. Trump may be laughable,His lack humour is almost inhuman. he never once witty or even faintly amusing – nut once, nut ever. I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever.   Trumps jokes are crassk, 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.
    He just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. Has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid

        Vast majority of Canadians generally detest Trump like the American liberals, just they are too nice to express it.
        I actually do a good British accent. I want to try it as new material in standup comedy act for a Canadian audience. Don't want to try it in the US

        What do you think?

          If you want something to sound more British like don’t ‘labour the points’ and inject some dry-humour with innuendos, banter and parody etc. into any such poetry; and use lots and lots of sarcasm e.g. just quoting Trump saying “I am not a racist” is enough because everyone knows that he is.

          A taste of British Humour on the topic:-

          •    The best signs at the UK Trump protests in 2018:- https://youtu.be/7cHjCy1rbn8

          Which British Accent do you do, RP?  Excluding Ireland, there’s in excess of 30 British Accents in the UK (four in London); I speak Bristolian.

            Holly cow!!! you know your british research. Canada has no Trump protests like this. I like the - Another prick in the wall.

            I'm staying away from racist stuff, even though I know personally he is racist.

            I think these poems came from more Britoliains. I'll avoid Irish or Scottish accent. I have more of a modern English accent.

              The “Another !rick in the wall” is a play on words of the famous Classic British Pop Culture Group of the 1970s, ‘Pink Floyd’ “Another Brick in the Wall”:-  https://youtu.be/YR5ApYxkU-U

              A more modern English Accent?  The only real modern English Accent is MLE (Multicultural London English), or perhaps Estuary English; two of the four London Accents:-

              The four London Accents being:-
              •    Received Pronunciation (RP)
              •    Estuary English
              •    Cockney
              •    Multicultural London English (MLE)

              Received Pronunciation (RP):
              This is the Queens English (aka BBC English) and is predominantly spoken by the Upper Classes.

              Estuary English:
              Originated Along the river banks of the Estuary (Thames) in London, and is predominantly more of a Middle Class London English Language.

              Estuary English: https://youtu.be/LY8FjXN14ew


              Cockney:
              Traditionally a true Cockney is someone who is born within earshot of Bow Bells, the bells of St Mary-le-Bow in London.  But Cockney these days is spoken widely throughout London; especially East London, and is more of a Working Class Language.

              How to Speak Cockney Rhyming Slang: https://youtu.be/XRVVCbXmYJo


              Multicultural London English (MLE): 
              Multicultural London English is the newest London dialect (only about 20 years old); and is blend Cockney mixed in with English dialects from around the world; most particularly from the Commonwealth; and includes words like ‘Bruv’ meaning friend.  Like Cockney, MLE tends to be more of a Working Class London Language.

          Hey, if that's your bag, who am I to knock it? If you can pull it off, that's great. I really dislike to hear Americans try to do a British accent of any kind. Our English is too flat to try to emulate the King's English. In American movies, I much prefer they use real British rather than have an American actor in the role. I marvel at how well British actors can do American accents. I guess it's easier to go flat.

      The Brits have their own Trump causing some heavy Brexit lies.
      They are in deep shi#@ as the Boris Johnson wants an hard Brexit and the opposition wants a Brexit too.
      The Brits are crushed in a sandwich of a two party system just like the US.

            Albeit, the worst part of it is that Boris isn't even British born; he's American, born in New York!

            Not wishing to be racist I do feel like saying "Boris, Go Home"!

              What does "Boris, Go Home!" have to do with racism. Brits are predominately caucasian, Trump is caucasian, the U.S. was founded by your Whigs in rebellion, and you aren't insulting anyone of another race here that I can determine.

                I don’t wish to be disrespectful; I don’t wish to insult anyone other than Trump and Boris.

                Pre Trump Brits thought very highly of America; but unfortunately Trump has stirred up a lot of anti-American feelings in Britain.

                A race is a grouping of humans based on shared physical or ‘Social’ qualities into categories generally viewed as distinct by society; in that respect Britain has distinctively different ‘Social’ qualities to America, so ergo is a different race.   However, on reading your comments, perhaps ‘Prejudice’ might have been a better word to use than racist.

                Yeah, Brits are predominately Caucasian.  In the 2011 Census 80.5% of people in England and Wales were Caucasian and 19.5% were from ethnic minorities e.g. we have become a multicultural Society; something most Brits are proud of.

                  Canada is the most immigrated country in the world, right now. Mainly it's cheapest labour for large corporations, a great lack of English spoken. We could use less.

                  Overall diversity is strength, there is slowly shrinking of the world population, except the older are living longer, I ? that.

                  Like Canada families growth is at 1.6 and China and India is at 2.1 children per family. Canada is in a good position still.

                    Canada sounds like a great country.
                    Except for it’s fracking record. Canada is destroying it’s nature reserve by the minute. Trudeau is full about being green and progressive, but its nothing but empty words. He has done nothing to stop fracking, a gas winning process that’s disastrous for nature and a big contributor to the climate crisis we face.

    More my concerns is the Brits are becoming more like the Americans.

    1. peterstreep profile image77
      peterstreepposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      what they both share is that
      1. they are both extreme capitalist countries.
      2. they have both a tabloid culture and
      3. both don't have a proportional representation election system. (in other words, they both have a political system controlled by the elites)

      Notwithstanding what peterstreep says, I hope not.

      The day British humour becomes as shallow as American humor, I shall really start to worry!

        I was shocked when GW Bush announced British was Americas Best friend. To think Canada trades more with the US than all of Europe combined.
        My green card was cancelled because I refused a war sculpture to Bush. Since Blair I can see how British can be divided, more so than Canadain.

        No, in my experience the Brits and Americans are completely different.

          You could be right, more so, political and Corporation-ism work on dividing and conquering all the time on both sides.

          I sense, people power are gaining strength. I'm not rushing to South America so fast, yet.

        Apparently you've never watched Benny Hill, or you wouldn't make that statement about shallow humor. lol

        1. Nathanville profile image93
          Nathanvilleposted 3 months agoin reply to this

          I love Benny Hill, and other slapstick comedies like the American ‘Keystone Cops’.  I also like the other old classic American Comedy films, like the ‘Bob Hope and Bing Crosby “Road to …..” films.

          I also love MASH (another classic American Comedy).

          What I don’t like are TV Comedy Series that are almost exclusively based on little more than just ‘gags’ for its humour; especially when the point is laboured e.g. putting emphases on the fact that a joke has been made with a moment of silence so that people can laugh, or another comment being made to highlight that a joke has just been made.

          I do struggle to find a lot of the American TV Comedies funny because most of them do seem to be based on little more than just a long string of short gags, just for laughs.

          Whereas in many British TV Comedies there is less emphases in the spoken word and more on body language, to make a situation funny.  Often in British Comedy, a witty comment is made in passing, with no pause for laughter, and no further reference to the wit e.g. if you don’t listen to every word it’s easy to miss the joke; especially if it’s an innuendo or sarcasm.

          Two prime examples of where British and American Comedy differs are the differences in the humour of the American and British versions of ‘the Inbetweeners’ and ‘The Office’; as demonstrated in the videos video below:-

    Poem of what an American thinks of Britains writing poems about Trump.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Mind your own beeswax
    And we'll mind ours too.

    Or how about this one?

    Instead of cleaning up your own swamp
    In another swamp you choose to romp.
    We are flattered by all the attention
    Yet I feel compelled to mention
    Your opinion holds no sway.

      I we would mind our own business except US owns most of our big business.

      They mine our Forest, they mine our coal, they mine our oil, mine our gas, but they mind destroying our natural environment. Even our beewax is on a great decline.  Uranium taken too, don't p_e on us and tell us it's not acid rain.
