great leaders

The clearest benefits of Trump's election, from my perspective, are: 1) Matt wants to stay here and get Australian citizenship, and 2) my esteemed prime minister doesn't seem like such a blowhard by comparison.

Or, at least he's much funnier about it? More like W? (Oh watch me wax nostalgic for the days of W...)
Asked by reporters how legislation would prevent users simply moving to encryption software not controlled by tech companies, Turnbull said Australian law overrode the laws of mathematics. 
“The laws of Australia prevail in Australia, I can assure you of that. The laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only laws that applies in Australia is the law of Australia.”
Matt says "The good news is, if we can pass a bill repealing Shannon's theorem, we can finally get decent internet speed."

With the rise of hostility towards immigrants and economic nationalism, perhaps the US will be less desirable to foreign investment, which could reduce the trade deficit, in much the same way Somalia runs a trade surplus.

Reducing the trade deficit is how we are going to revive coal mining, which is apparently the only industry that matters. I'm a little fuzzy on the details.
