this is a good documentary...
11 June 2021 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

For all of us other bystanders that cant decide nor vote because were not part of the system, like me, a grumpy old norwegian, that wasnt shocked when trump won, but more shocked that the media management still havent been able to speak clearly how he did win... therefore docus like this is made, and i just devour them because its a 3 star worthy michelin menu every time im encountering shrines like this, that fulfills my appetite on my conviction that usa is like a stew of every kinda meat and vegetables that exists on this earth , boiled in a pressure cooker, and out comes the star spangled banner of the great land of the strong and the free, and i believe 80% of americans with hand held at the heartroot that that is the truth, when the real answer ultimately shows the direct opposite.

So whether youre a dem or a gop or a crook, elections like 2016 came out as a result of a societal disease, a protest like every protests, cause americans loves to protest, and sue and hope...and the weird thing is that the public never wins, they loose every battle from rounding up on a sidewalk for something, fighting union issues, a phrase that almost has ceased to exist, and the winner actually tries to overkill and dump back to communist russia. How could the grassroot of the proud people of america embrace such a candidate??? Its a simple answer, there were no real opponent.

I would have loved to see the whole interviews uncut by each ''knowhower'' that were sampled to make this documentary, each and everyone of it yes, therefore whether black or white, dem. Or rep., do entertain yourself with this overanalysed phenomenon called trump once again, they called him a political alien in the beginning, and maybe he is an alien... from deep space... communicating via the antenna on top of the golden pyramide on top of the trump tower, being dictated by the dark forces of dark matter somewhere out there??? Im just joking...though i guess some will thumb me up for this idea anyway

a recommend from the grumpy old man.
