If that was humour I didn't get it at all.
Why take a pop at the UK when the thread under discussion is the US Presidential election? It's not relevant. The UK has a load of its own problems. You even started a discussion on the most recent one here:
I can certainly see that you clearly did not "get it at all".
The Brexit Thread, a single thread you cited is a very different tone of discussion than in this Thread. I was truly and genuinely interested in how the people on this SITE from the UK in particular, thought of it, and why; I asked questions and wanted to learn more about the details of the "hows and whys" of that vote; and I waited until the vote was over to ask and "listen". It was enlightening and generally, but not always, civil and polite. An exchange of views and thoughts that I did enjoy and learned a few things I would not have heard on the BBC.
Maybe I notice the sort of "Anti-American" sentiment more than you do because it does become tiresome. To cite a single Thread wherein there was a look into the UK is very different than when so often the crosshairs are on the USA for some reason, in some way, and the USA is too often considered as if though it is the problem in these Posts, with little introspection into the mirror by so many in the UK.
Maybe I am intolerant of too little tolerance expressed about my country so often. Trump did not win the Presidency by his single vote alone; Hillary Clinton did much worse than expected than the country (and the world) was so often told, and did worse in every single group she was expected to. That means that a great many people, who, for an incredible number of reasons, voted for Trump; women, minorities, democrats and so on. To disparage so many people simply because you think differently, well, is not exactly very generous of thought. You do not trash only Trump, but roughly half of the USA that voted. A number of people have at least attempted to understand or realize why, for if Clinton was simply unacceptable to even to many democrats
, it helps to makes it clearer just why Trump won the election.
I am fortunate to live in a state which is rich in Natural Resources; and because it is a rural area, (primarily), many buy fresh beef - and keep a quarter to a half of a beef in a locker, and have other fresh meats available year round; fresh vegetables are available, and a number people of different religions work in canning their own crops for sale. Propane here is relatively cheap at $1.45/ gallon, and gasoline, depending upon what grade you choose, is around $2 a gallon.
Only in the last 3 years or so did this area feel the economic crunch like so many other states had, everyone who can work, does, as a general rule. But the idiocy of technocrats that landed like locusts caused great problems that need not have happened. Small banks are hurt by a "Dodd-Frank" bill, that does essentially the opposite of what it was supposed to and was sold as. There are too many things to list or list again that caused problems for the citizenry, and it is not a surprise that the vast center of the USA did not want a "3rd Obama Term", a phrase used by Clinton in assorted ways during the campaign.
The democratic leadership seem clueless as to why they lost, thinking it was the messaging, rather than reassessing "why".
There are numerous reasons for this unfortunate, corrosive divisiveness. But I remain optimistic, even if the same old "blame America First" arguments in whatever form do, from time to time become once again, tiresome.
