    Very entertaining programme last night.
    Balls travelled around the Deep South seeing several groups of Trump supporters from Rednecks, Veterans and WWE wrestlers.
    His interviewing style was great. He just asked a question and got answers out of them. No interruptions or arguments and the result was great telly.
    The way he whipped up the wrestling crowd to be against him whilst wearing a Union Jack leotard was hilarious but at the same time proving how Trump is basically a rabble rouser.

    It was very entertaining.

    The comparisons between wrestling and Trump’s campaign and presidency were very accurate.

    Looking forward to next week as it looks like he gets tasered.

    My mate edited the show. He told me a possible alternative title was "Ed Balls: Deep In Trumpland." :lol:

    Edited: mis-remembered the actual title.

  6. Ed’s a really good TV man. He’s found his calling at last.

    I nearly choked on my tea when he said 'never assume the voters are wrong' like.
     
  9. I like Ed and enjoyed the program, very interesting and he came over really well. I got a lump in my throat when he was doing fireside tributes with those veterans and spoke about Jo Cox.

    He even got a custom made sequinned Big Daddy suit :lol:.
     
  10. Trump is in the WWE hall of fame :cool:

    Thank you. I probablys wouldn't have watched that without a recommendation. Balls is great and makes a real effort to get beneath the surface. Very good programme and I'm looking forward to the other two.

    I couldn’t stand him as a politician, but he comes across well now.

    Definitely. He was saying about Brexit and Trump that around half of the voters chose those options, so you can't assume they're all racist/bigots etc. People have legitimate reasons. Enjoyed his interview and will watch these trumpland shows eventually

    He's the new Portillo.
