  1. I wonder if some viewers have changed there opinions on Trump now. But the point really of this is the global economic system holds a lot of blame. Populism is a strategy to lure voters and Trump did play this card very well.

  2. Oh don't forget totalitarian regimes across Africa, the middle east and across Asia.
    Most right wing regimes on earth.

  3. More shit coming down the left-wing pipeline. People are simply not falling for your lies and race baiting anymore. You ignore the underlining issues, you ignore the nuance of these economic situations were in, you ignore everything and go straight to "RACISM"
    You people dig your own graves, Trump popularity is a direct correlation with the people wanting their needs to come first- they're tired of being second class citizens in their own countries. They're tired of your linear regressive views- your political correctness and you persecution of thought-crimes. Right wing politics are on the rise because people are sick of your shit- they're sick you.

    This is coming from one of your own; I use to be a viewer- a progressive and a liberal but then I woke up and stopped seeing the world through such blatant lies. You people have nowhere to go but down and we have nowhere to go but up.

  4. Populism is "a political ideology which holds that the virtuous citizens are being mistreated by a small circle of elites, who can be overthrown if the people recognize the danger and work together "

    You can find them to the left wing too… Just look at south america… Equally dangerous. Stop the bias please.

  5. So, you're saying that the real problem is the multinationals, and the right-wing populists who want to take power back from the multinationals and return in to the people are somehow bad?

  6. Thanks for the warning. Main stream media touts this line as well,
    and Main stream media would never lie to us.

  7. Does the Guardian only employ the most hideous applicants? Between this guy, Steven Thrasher and Julie Bindel I may not get any sleep tonight. Monsters are real! Or is it their elitist overlord Dame Liz Forgan needs to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find lefty-fascist, humanity-hating extremists of the stripe required to fulfill her agenda to destroy western culture? Either way, you fascist fucks are on your way out. The tide is turning in Europe and throughout the world and none of your progressive talking points can distract from the reality people see around them.

  8. oh dear this guy will lose his collective mind, Trump just won in Indiana, all aboard the Trump train I suppose. Also Brexit looks like more than just a possibility.

  9. I can't wait to see the Guardian's reports when Trump becomes president.
    Just a black and white video of all these grown-up children hysterically sobbing and whining "WHYYYY!?!?!?!"

  10. Why the fuck are these brits commenting on our election. YOU LOST THE COLONIES YEARS AGO FUCK OFF MATES

  11. Yeah fuck populism why listen to public opinion? I prefer the state making decisions that we're all too stupid to make ourselves! Don't you agree?!

  12. Jesus, this is a frightening scenario. It paints the picture not of Trump as some cancerous growth eating America, but rather as a pimple which represents a symptom of an already unhealthy America.

  13. Rubbish. The usual pro-migrant politically correct dogma. I am sick of listening to this kind of BS from the Guardian and the BBC. Other posters have dealt with the issues. The left and the political establishment on both sides of the Atlantic are shit scared. Populism or popularity, expressing views which millions of people hold but were afraid to express? Preying on people's insecurities or addressing the justified concerns that people have about immigration and Islam?

  14. What person that's going to vote in the republican primaries is going to watch a video by the guardian? And who thinks anyone gives a shit about some idiot from the uk?

  15. Scapegoating ,unlike many," i pay attention to the narrative".Amazing how many gullible people there are these days,they are angry because of the injustices they feel have been bestowed upon them,but they fail to target the correct culprits,such is their lack of understanding ,of Global economics.

  16. I'm sorry but the fact that a left-wing newspaper (The Guardian) is vainly attempting to descredit him by spewing lies. Apparently the left don't understand humour when they are hurt by it. But luckily people are finally realising how hypocritical left-wing thought is. You guys just keep digging a hole for Trump to fill and you are too dense to realise all this hate-speech directed towards him just makes you lose even more.

    And did they just call Nigel Farage a xenophobic demagogue? LOL AHAHAHA He is the complete opposite, but realism doesn't come naturally to you.

  17. All of you getting insulted about belonging to a leftwing or rightwing BS. You missed the whole point. There is NO ONE TO BLAME, but THE SYSTEM.
    Did you not see the main point? Capitalism has given more power to LARGE CORPORATIONS which have been (excuse my language) RAPING this planet for $$$$$$.This is not about WHO DID WHAT. THIS IS ABOUT SAVING OUR PLANET, TOGETHER. Holy. Good god, people. Get it together, and remember the Love that unites us all. 🙂

  18. What, take obamas raise of our deficit by 12 trillion since he has been in office. The Obama election win was a bigoted and racist fueled election.

  19. "Right wing populists are fear mongers misdirecting the public." and "immigrants undermine national security" need not be clean cut mutually exclusive
