I'd say there's a good chance North Korean state television wouldn't be this shameless

Although John Higgins does keep his reds under the bed and has made mysterious trips to Ukraine which we're still waiting for real answers on, I don't recall him being involved in US politics

While I have heard the Celtic-supporting snooker legend referred to as the Republican rest  user, I don't think he's that sort of Republican

Trump calling out Biden to both appear on a 4 hour long Joe Rogan podcast.

It's gonna be interesting.

The only person who benefits from this is probably Joe Rogan with all the views he's gonna get and he's just signed a $1bn deal with Spotify too.

There’s not a hope Biden would do that. It’s all in trumps favour, as he gets another opportunity to batter Biden along with the TV debates.

What maniac wants a four hour debate? I'd imagine the vast majority of Joe Rogan's audience wouldn't have the attention span to listen to four minutes straight, let alone four hours.

Ah it’d be great. Neither of them will last 4 hours without f**king it up, they won’t last an hour even.

Trump and Biden slowly killing off all their credentials while Rogan gets high as f**k. It’s TV gold.

It would be awful.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Two nasty rich, white, gropy, septuagenarian racists with limited intellectual, cognitive and motory function rambling on and on in repetitious and desultory fashion for four solid hours.

I can hardly think of anything worse.

Grotesque human rights abuse such as deliberate bodily mutilation of women is always the result of a culture of fascism

And this is what Trump supporters want

Staggering Number of Hysterectomies Happening at ICE Facility, Whistleblower Says

"We’ve questioned among ourselves, like, goodness, he's taking everybody’s stuff out," said a former nurse at the facility. "That's his specialty, he’s the uterus collector."

A whistleblower complaint filed Monday by several legal advocacy groups accuses a detention center of performing a staggering number of hysterectomies on immigrant women, as well as failing to follow procedures meant to keep both detainees and employees safe from the coronavirus.

The complaint, filed on behalf of several detained immigrants and a nurse named Dawn Wooten, details several accounts of recent “jarring medical neglect” at the Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla, Georgia, which is run by the private prison company LaSalle South Corrections and houses people incarcerated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In interviews with Project South, a Georgia nonprofit, multiple women said that hysterectomies were stunningly frequent among immigrants detained at the facility.

“When I met all these women who had had surgeries, I thought this was like an experimental concentration camp,” said one woman, who said she’d met five women who’d had hysterectomies after being detained between October and December 2019. The woman said that immigrants at Irwin are often sent to see one particular gynecologist outside of the facility. “It was like they’re experimenting with their bodies.”

In one case, Wooten said, a woman who ended up with a hysterectomy was not properly anesthetized and overhead the doctor say that he’d taken out the wrong ovary. That woman had to go back and get her other ovary removed as well, Wooten said.

“We’ve questioned among ourselves, like, goodness, he’s taking everybody’s stuff out,” said Wooten, who was a full-time employee at Irwin until July. “That’s his specialty, he’s the uterus collector. I know that’s ugly.”

“Is he collecting these things or something,” she continued. “Everybody he sees, he’s taking all their uteruses out or he’s taken their tubes out. What in the world.”

Wooten also said she’d talked to several detained immigrants who’d had hysterectomies but didn’t know why. One detained immigrant told Project South that, ahead of the scheduled procedure, she was given multiple different explanations about what would happen and why it was necessary.

No doubt you've a half-alsatian/half-labrador named 'Nelson'. No-one can possibly accuse you of racism!

You're wasting your time, arguing against him. He just insults anyone who doesn't see the world the way he does. 

Trump himself has no great interest in racism, for or against, he's a free marketeer businessman whose main interest in being President is the economy. Making sure Americans of all backgrounds have jobs to go to, and cash to spend to help make a better life for themselves. He doesn't care that much about other causes, and because he doesn't, he gets earache from his opponents howling at the moon. If you want to see an openly racist nutjob i n charge of his country, you only have to take a hour long flight from Dublin to find one. Funny that most don't seem all that bothered about that. Despite those views, he was returned to office last year, as the looney left challenger to him was useless, who lost every election and referendum he fought as leader of his party, and is now consigned to the backbenches for the rest of his time in politics.

Politics and sport should never mix, but Lewis Hamilton is so bored with winning every Formula 1 race by half a lap nowadays, that he's taken up a fresh challenge this year, as the self appointed leader of the sport's anti racism demos. It's not enough for his white colleagues to say they're against racism no, when they are trying to focus on the job facing them before the start, they all have to wear black shirts and get down on one knee, and according to him, it has to be done before every race, and if anyone doesn't follow the actions of the ringleader, they must answer questions until the next race. As if that wasn't enough, he's now decided to wear shirts at races to protest about events in the USA that he has no influence or control over, about people he doesn't know and has never met. 

If he seriously wants to change thousands of years of distrust and discrmination, then he can do what Donald Trump did. He can give up his career and get into politics, so he can have the power to make a significant difference to society. But that would require real change of course. Racism is not about skin colour, racism happens and thrives when one race of people think that their culture or way of life is superior and/or more entitled to rights, than another. It's been part of human history since, pick any year you want. And that's something that can't be changed by just taking a knee. Or even changing a President.
