    It's important that girls believe they can achieve whatever they want in this patriarchal world.

    And being more blokey than the blokes doesn't have to be a required tactic for genuine success.

    Seems like the female leaders are (generally) doing a better job than the males at present

    Let us not think it is over.

    Trump's vote went up by 10%, compared to the 2016 election.

    Seven million more people voted for him this time.

    His vote count in this election will be the second highest in US history, exceeding even Hillary's 2016 'losing' vote.

    Only Biden has ever got more support.

    He may be back in 2024. He may be in jail. Let us enjoy this for now

    The Tangerine Racist will be 78 by the time of the next election. Hopefully his party will think he’s too old and won’t be chosen to represent his party.

    Yes I do know how old Joe Biden is.

    It is quite a dilemma for the Republicans.

    He is their greatest electoral asset.

    They may consider that Lyndon Johnson's camping analogy about J Edgar Hoover applies?

    I'm glad he's not my (immediate) problem.

    He does have the air of someone in a 'Robert Maxwell sort of position', where his entire empire could start a chain-reaction implosion at any moment.

    Nigel Farage likes being in America, will only be 60 by 2024 and we would be best rid of him.

    Donald Trump introduced Nigel Farage as “The King of Europe”.

    Knowing some Americans they probably do actually think that Europe has a King.

    And another thing, 60,000 Americans voted for Kanye West to be their President.
    Let’s hope he’s not still serious about going for it again in four years time.

    Very unfortunately he is British and therefore, not allowed to run. Otherwise I totally that the USA is the best place for him rather than here.

    Birthplace is the real issue. He can't run for president, under the existing rules.

    But, Johnson was born in New York...

    There is the 14-year residence rule, too, however.

    I am older than Farage.
    He looks 10 years older than me.

    He's had a hard life, battling for the underdog.
