"New York Times": Trump's "worst candidate in history"

Politic News Report

Politic News Report:

The "New York Times" has made a recommendation to vote for the Democratic US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Your Republican challenger Donald Trump described the newspaper as the "worst candidates to a great party has produced in modern American history."

In an editorial it said, Trump reveal nothing of himself or of his plans - instead, he promised voters the moon and the stars for gripping.

At the same time, the newspaper praised Clinton's "intellect, experience and courage". Today's world fighting against challenges such as war and terrorism as well as the pressure of globalization. Clinton have analyzed these problems and the "responses accurately weighed it."

Now the US citizen should not only therefore choose Clinton because the alternative Trump loud, warned the "New York Times". Instead, the voters would have to be clear about what problems had confronted the country and Clinton's abilities weigh to tackle this.

Of voters in the US customary

The newspaper gave its recommendation to vote on shortly before the first televised debate between Clinton and Trump, held German time early Tuesday morning. Six weeks before the election are the former foreign minister and the real estate mogul close together in the polls.

In the US, it is tradition that newspapers proposed concrete recommendations choice. Thus, the "New York Times" had previously spoken twice for Barack Obama: at his first candidacy and his re-election. Most newspapers supported Democratic candidates. Recently she had recommended in the 50's with a Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Mr. Tigerli in China

Yes Betty, either or it seems he wanted to fly only with Singapore Airways.

Boeing or Airbus, it’s just the same isn’t it? Aren’t they both just fat birds with 500 passengers?

Yes, but Singapore Airlines has the most beautiful airhostesses: delicate, fine, graceful…  Mr. Tigerli had looked forward to the flight so much!

So the little man was disappointed?

You just can’t imagine how disappointed he was.
 But thank God one of the hostesses was a pretty Chinese girl. Mr. Tigerli purred loudly but she didn’t hear him because the purring of the Airbus 380 was even louder.

The poor cat!

You’ve said it Betty. Mr. Tigerli was in a very bad mood and asked me for a loud speaker.

I’m sure you can get one in 1st Class.

“”Russian Girl” had even heard you over the roar of the Niagara Falls” I said to Mr. Tigerli. “You are a very unfaithful cat. You wanted to get to know Asiatic girls. That’s how it is when one leaves one’s first love”.

And what did he say to that?

“Men are hunters” was his answer.

Yes, my dear cat, a mouse hunter. And what else did he say?

Not another word. He behaved as if he hadn’t heard me.

The Airbus is very loud.

I told him shortly “Don’t trouble yourself about “Chinese Girl”. There will be enough even prettier girls in China. Wait till we land in Guilin”.

Did he understand you?

Naturally Mr. Tigerli understood me immediately. Yes, sweetheart, don’t worry. They will find you something sweet to eat.

And he?

He was so happy.

No problem going through the immigration control?

Naturally!  Lots of problems. How could I explain to customs that the cat had come as a tourist to China to buy shoes?

Fur in exchange for shoes…

Don’t be so cynical Betty!

Cat meat in exchange for shoes?

I said to the officials. He isn’t a cat, he is Casanova.

He came through the pass control with no trouble!
