we should respect their choice, even if its a dumb one.

What an idiotic position And you don’t even believe it. You regularly don’t respect people’s choices if they are left-leaning.

Nothing we can do about it of course but it's reasonable to have an opinion.
I'm not saying don't have an opinion. I have an opinion on Nancy Pelosi, Hilary Clinton and all the other wicked arseholes in the democrat party. But if the AMerican people are stupid enough to choose that (they weren't), then I would respect the decision. I actually don't have a choice. But I don't think our media should be on the orange man bad train. They should respect the office and report on Trump with the same level of respect they showed Obama. Not doing their best to humiliate the President of the USA. I don't think that's a smart route to go down. Respect the office if not the man.

What an idiotic position And you don’t even believe it. You regularly don’t respect people’s choices if they are left-leaning.
I'm a lunatic with a keyboard. I'm not an official media outlet or a politician or a CEO of a major corporation or a public figure.

I didn't like Obama one bit. Forked-tongue warmonger who put children in cages that he was. But I didn't make it my business to make endless threads and tweets and facebook posts about black man bad. I had my opinions if asked, but it was America's choice to put such an appalling President in The White House. One the rest of the world just had to suck up.

Incorrect.  We can have conversations that will hopefully influence American voters.

Are you having conversations to influence Russian voters? What about Chinese voters or French voters or Italian voters or Indian voters? What is the obsession with American politics? The best answer I can come up with, is that it is in English so our lazy journalists can copy and paste it into their news sites. But I don't care about America nearly as much as British coverage of American news would suggest. I don't think most Brits do. Most Brits would struggle to name the Prime Minister of Australia or the main parties in New Zealand. And yet they know blow by blow every last insignificant and irrelevant detail of Trump's actions. Why does his healthcare policy get so much UK air time? It is domestic policy. British people don't know anything about Indian health policy or Japanese policy, we aren't told. But every last detail of US. The Muller investigation. Why would the British public care? But again excruciating detail and it is so irrelevant to us. And yet British people follow this and have full blown arguments WITH OTHER BRITISH PEOPLE about it!

One of my friends has Trump derangement syndrome. He gets incredibly worked up about Trump's latest endeavours. And it makes no difference to his life at all. We need less US politics in our news. It only imports US problems like black lives matter or antifa.

Well I happen to live right next to the USA and we do 70% of our commerce with the USA.  They also happen to be the largest economic power in the world.

Maybe because the actions the USA takes have an impact on the world?

Its none of our business who American's choose as their leader. We don't get a vote and we should respect their choice, even if its a dumb one.

When the world's most sophisticated and powerful nuclear arsenal falls into the hands of a rich, spoiled, corrupt, pussy grabbing, draft dodging, Hillary supporting, man-child, the whole planet should be concerned.  With a corrupt Attorney General and a majority in the legislators, the checks and balances have been removed.

Fortunately, he's an incompetent buffoon who hasn't really been able to accomplish anything more than a tax break for billionaires even with a majority in the house and the Senate.

And before the Junior Republican Incels start going on about how unfair the liberal media is to poor Donald, this pattern has gone on all his life. He is a half century of scandal, bankruptcy and bullshit.
