Didn't you also see Trump as a buffoon who didn't stand a chance of going anywhere?

I think most people recognize that Trump is a buffoon, but that he was the least objectionable of two horrible candidates. As for this Tommy Robinson issue, I still don't see this story blowing up into anything more than an obscure story about something going on in the UK. Also, it's one thing to cover a trial and it's quite another thing to provide personal info about a defendant. People on trial are under enough pressure without any additional threats being added as a result of the general public knowing what they look like and where they live. Vigilante justice should not be enabled.

Yeah. You're probably right. After this all blows over nobody will even remember his name. Just like that colored lady who refused to ride in the back of the bus. What was her name? Idiot leftists are so out of touch they have no idea what they have started... The best thing they could do for themselves is let Tommy out of jail, issue him an apology and reprimand the judge; but they are too stupid. I can't wait to see how this thing unfolds!

Something tells me that Tommy Robinson will never even register in the minds of most people. Rosa Parks is still known to most people, but it takes a lot of imagination to see Tommy Robinson as at all important. I'm not even convinced that Robinson has a legitimate gripe to be quite honest.
