OK, that is actually a half truth; Hillary Clinton drinks coffee, as she can be seen doing here at Octane Coffee in Grant Park, Atlanta, the beatboxing bit I made up. I was bored.
I’m not actually sure if that is Hillary Clinton or a wax model, she looks frozen, must be a decent coffee!
By the way, if I was American I’d be voting for her rather than Donald Trump – I know absolutely nothing about politics, but I can’t take a man seriously who says he will never touch a cup of coffee, and that he has never touched a drop of alcohol.
If he never gets pissed by the way, then where did he come up with the idea to build a huge wall to keep Mexicans out, and that he’ll make them pay for it? That’s a pissed up idea drawn on the back of a beer mat if there ever was one.
If he doesn’t drink coffee, how can he lead a country? Everyone knows coffee is the fuel of leaders and legends!
Obama – now there’s a guy who drinks coffee, look at him sat at his White House desk with his cup of greatness, that’s a leader.
As you can see he was on the phone when this photo was taken, with the White House barista, asking what coffee beans were used for his double espresso, as he found them particularly enjoyable. I’m joking, it was a sales call, he was telling some sales guy that no, he’s not the person responsible for renewing the gas and electric contracts for the property!
Trump should actually win, by the way, according to Professor Allan Lichtman, who has successfully predicted every single presidential election since 1984!
This is due to a set of “keys” that Allan has developed which he applies to each election to give him the result. You can read more about this in his book Predicting the next president. He created this system by working back through every single election going back to 1860 and tweaked the system until it worked for every single presidential election since then. However, in a recent interview professor Lichtman stated that while he should win according to his system, Donald Trump may well actually be the first candidate to break his system, in 156 years!
The reason he thinks this may happen is that – in his words:
“We’ve never before seen a candidate who’s spent his life enriching himself at the expense of others. He’s the first candidate in our history to be a serial fabricator, making up things as he goes along. Even when he tells the truth, such as, “Barack Obama really was born in the U.S.,” he adds two lines, that Hillary Clinton started the birther movement, and that he finished it, even though when Barack Obama put out his birth certificate, he didn’t believe it. We’ve never had a candidate before who not just once, but twice in a thinly disguised way, has incited violence against an opponent. We’ve never had a candidate before who’s invited a hostile foreign power to meddle in American elections.
We’ve never had a candidate before who’s threatened to start a war by blowing ships out of the water in the Persian Gulf if they come too close to us. We’ve never had a candidate before who has embraced as a role model a murderous, hostile foreign dictator. Given all of these exceptions that Donald Trump represents, he may well shatter patterns of history that have held for more than 150 years, lose this election even if the historical circumstances favor it.”
So there you go, according to professor Lichtman, Donald Trump should have it in the bag, but may well be doing himself out of the job.
Going back to former US presidents who drink coffee, Bill Clinton is a big coffee drinker, actually, it seems it’s harder to find a photo of him without a coffee in his hand than with one. He’s a fan of cigars too I seem to recall, but that’s another story.
George W Bush is another ex-president who drinks coffee, here he is with a takeaway Dunkin Donuts – I’d be more impressed if he had it put in his own re-usable cup, like green party leader Natalie Bennett, but still.
