Dishonest and lying media

Why is Donald Trump such a big hit with so many people, not only in the US, but all over the world? Because, whether you like him or not, whether you agree with what he says or not, he says what he truly feels, and what a growing number of people believe as well.

Trump, Brexit, etc. – People aren’t taking it anymore

When a self-anointed authority keeps telling you what to say or think, you’ll soon reach a breaking point and scream, “I can’t take it anymore!” Living like that isn’t living; it’s living a nightmare like 1984 or under some totalitarian regime (Marxism, Nazism, etc.).
