And suddenly the world seems like a safer and saner place….

Dear Rouleurs,

MMT’s Blog has rarely strayed into political commentary, but after being glued to ABC and SBS’s coverage of the American election in early November, its time the gloves came off. Donald ‘Dump’ Trump was finally visited by the karma fairy. All the lying, cheating and no doubt soon to be revealed stealing has caught up with him and his cronies.

Finally, sanity prevails….thank you America’s voters.

Trump’s reaction of hiding in the White and sulking is a fitting footnote to his presidency. The American people living in the states of Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, who voted for the Biden-Harris ticket, take a bow. You’ve restored America’s international standing and made the world just that little bit better. Thank you.

MMT is going to have this put on a t-shirt….

Aside from die-hard Trump supporters, the most aggrieved group in American society, who will dearly miss Trump, are cartoonists. Once Trump is dragged by the Secret Service out of the Oval Office, what will they have as inspiration? So while this blog is openly disparaging of Trump and his lackeys, it offers its condolences to cartoonists world wide.

The following is smattering of cartoons that have caught MMT’s eye over the last couple of weeks

No doubt history will say that Donald Trump’s presidency was one of the greatest periods of time for political cartoonists.

Anyhoooo, that will MMT’s last foray into political commentary for this year, cycling is much more interesting.

Until next keep safe, ride safe and Make American Great Again

Post-holiday angry rant part 1 – dump trump

Dear Rouleurs,

MMT has been back 10 days in Melbourne and already the heady days of #Iloveholidays are over.  In his jet-lagged state of foreboding, MMT has taken solace in the ready availability of world-class coffee.  The Spanish seem to relish the taste of UHT long life milk.  MMT wonders if its exclusively used in cafes in that country.  In MMT’s opinion, using that kind of milk makes coffee undrinkable. Yup, MMT is a coffee snob and bike snob 😉

So on his way to a near by coffee shop, MMT spied this horrible sight.  MMT had to look twice to sense-check his reality.  After all, who in their right mind, in Australia, would have a bumper sticker supporting the current American President. I’ve left the licence plate in the photo as a form of ‘name and shame’.

MMT very nearly keyed this car out of spite and protest.  The only thing holding back that act of protest/vandalism was the thought that just may be this was some weird, deeply ironic joke.  Either way, MMT was very, very conflicted at the sight of something so idiotic. Its not like Australia has a shortage of political idiots.  One only has to look at the most recent coup d’etat against the previous PM Malcolm Turnbull, to see how many of them are present in the Australian Liberal Party.

MMT digresses, the coffee was good and MMT was able to re-direct his rage to this blog.

Until next time ride safe.
