Australian Reporter’s Searing Anti-Trump Assessment Goes Viral
“Donald Trump is a man who craves power because it burnishes his celebrity,” says Chris Uhlmann, political editor for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. “To be constantly talking and talked about is all that really matters, and there is no value placed on the meaning of words — so what’s said one day can be discarded the next.”
The video was tweeted yesterday by the ABC’s Insider news program, and has been “liked” more than 39,000 times. For a bit of perspective, yesterday’s Top Gun tweet from Donald Trump Jr. has scored fewer than 14,000 likes, with 4,650 retweets.
“Some will cheer the decline of America,” Uhlmann intones at one point before adding “but I think we’ll miss it when it’s gone, and that’s the biggest threat to the values of the West, which he claims to hold so dear.”
