Which situation is more stupid?

I can't decide which is more stupid: the political situation here, or the one in America. On both sides of the Pond, it seems absurdity rains. Here, politicians are trying to claim the civil service is biassed because it isn't telling the public what they want them to hear; in the US, their joke of a president is going apeshit as his links with Russia get closer to being exposed. Both situations are, near enough, equally absurd, and they both have an increasingly nasty, dark feeling to them. Both Brexit and Trump have an odd, rather right-wing taint to them; in both cases they are underpinned by rich white men seeking power, trying to get the public to ignore impartial, authoritative sources of information as biassed because it does not fit their agenda. And they are both utterly, utterly moronic. As the outists try to hide the truth of Brexit from us, and as trump tries ever more desperately to hide his links to Russia, I think it will become clearer and clearer that there is something greatly amiss in both situations. All we can do, though, is watch as both absurdities unfold.
