Trump - 70 plus year old American. Grew up when the USA was booming: James Dean, electric food mixers, big cars, Europe was rebuilding itself after WW2 which also left the US pretty much untouched. He missed out on the 60s with free love and acid, because he was too old. This is why he thinks America was great when he was a teenager and why he has such a polarised view on the world - of course he lives in a wealth bubble as well. Quite disconnected from the rest of the world I’m sure you’ll agree.
I didn’t actually profile Trump however to get to this opinion; instead I profiled a past CICP president with whom I was having an argument at the time, who also happened to believe that Korea was a third-world country.
You could say “you can always vote someone else in!” but you can’t because it’s a non-democratic US-centric association.
After about 20 years of dealing with bollocks you get burn-out. Teaching fly fishing is not a hobby for me. It’s actually my profession.
So yep; drew a line under all of it
The headache has long gone
