Canadian Parliament Chants "Four More Years!" to President Obama
Go read any of the rabid radical right wing blogs and news sites to see how excruciatingly wrong they are about President Obama's approval around the world. The more insane among them claim he's not respected by other countries and that Trump will make America great again by acting like a blathering buffoon.
The opposite is true. What a surprise!
The Canadian Parliament chanted "Four More Years!" after Mr. Obama addressed them yesterday. Canada loves our American president.
Below is a chart from the Pew Research Center showing President Obama's approval numbers around the world. The overwhelming majority approves of our American president. The rabid radical right wingers, as we know, are nuts and are consumed by their hatred of President Obama. They are in a sad, distinct minority and wrong, as they usually are on most issues:
So the Trumpistas believe Donnie will make America great again by having our allies detest him? How does that work?
How about Trump? What do our European allies think about the bloviating flesh bag?
Pew poll: Trump at 9% with Europeans
Clinton earns much more positive marks among Europeans
Just 9% of Europeans surveyed have confidence in the presumptive Republican nominee to do the right thing in world affairs, according to a new Pew Research Center poll Wednesday.
Eighty-five percent of respondents in 10 EU countries said they have no confidence in Trump, who has described his foreign policy doctrine as "America First."
Trump's rival, Hillary Clinton, earned much more positive marks among Europeans, with 59% saying they have confidence in the former secretary of state.
Twenty-seven percent expressed no confidence in Clinton, Pew found.
The Pew poll was conducted among 20,132 respondents in 10 European nations, four major Asia-Pacific countries, Canada and the U.S. from April 4 to May 29, a period that ended weeks before the Brexit vote.
