    Europeans when talking to Americans will change they way they say something if they know Americans say it differently, or at least explain the word while Americans will just say 'freshman year in college' for example without giving it a second thought that we might not have a clue what freshman year is.

    Europeans have bad breath, bad teeth, his spine is curved in the form of question mark, they have dandruf, they wee socks on sandals, and they read books and know Greek mythology, and are acustomed to life in small apartments. They don't know what toaster is and don't mix sweet and salt in the same meal. They are humble.

    Americans are fat, surgically imroved, white teeth, transplanted hair, tall, fat again, they are barefooted, relaxed, they mix jam and peanut butter and maprle syrup with bacon, they are noisy and need space, their cloth closet is bigger than most appartments in Europe, they can come in in his house thorugh windows, and don't read books and are uneducated.

    Okay, so this is a bigotry thread, do I have that much right?

    (Psssst, not all Americans are narrow-minded and uneducated. A lot are, yes, but by no means all.)

    This is new for the Americans, their Presidents or I should say most of them were well respected around the world. This one most certainly is not, also the first President to be up 3:00 a.m. tweeting!!!

    Name me a European leader even close to him?

    I think they voted him in the way most democracies do, with some minor differences...by "secret" ballot.
