No further comment necessary.



No, further comment is indeed necessary as all you’ve done is pluck a headline from an interview with no context. I read the interview in The Guardian yesterday and not once does he endorse Trump, in fact he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary and libertarian in the presidential election. I suggest you read the interview which I imagine is freely available via The Guardian’s website. For those interested this is what he said (from The Guardian ).

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much. No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.” While Trump may not be doing a good job himself, Lynch thinks, he is opening up a space where other outsiders might. “Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done. Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.”

The Twin Peaks forums feel like a calm zone where we can go to escape things such as the latest freak outs regarding current events. It's a kind of sanctuary that can shield one from hearing repetitive banter bouncing from the walls of an enormous echo chamber, just the same way that Twin Peaks itself is a vacation away from the all too familiar bullshit that a more demanding, modern and rigid society present.
Not taking any calls.

Yes, these headlines are atrocious clickbait. C'mon, BlueRose.

Mr Strawberry, I avoided commenting on Lynch's political thoughts because this is not the place to share my opinions about Donald Trump. Nevertheless, if you're implying that quote by the man who made The Return shouldn't have been posted here, then you're mistaken, plain and simple. David Lynch using those words about that man in mid-2018 could hardly be more relevant to many of the central discussions of this thread.

Now, if some TR fans squirm when they read those words, even a little, then that's all to the good, and perhaps a sign they're not a complete lost cause. But if that squirm then turns into Oh no, I don't want to see that -- take it away, then we're right back into the hysteria and la-la-la denial that has plagued this thread throughout. That, and the absolute refusal to remain on-topic and abide by the OP:

The title says it all. There's a lot of heated and interesting debate/discussion going on in the main Season 3 threads.This thread isn't meant for that. It is, as the title suggests, a thread in which the small minority of us who are experiencing feelings of extreme disappointment and even disillusionment can band together and rant/moan/complain to our heart's content without being told that we're not getting it... Oh and in case I didn't make it clear, this isn't the place for those of you besotted with the Return to come in and tell us why we're wrong. It's a safe space, so please show some R-E-S-P-E-C-T.


They've just had another warning from Jerry Horne to cut it out. Time after time after time after time they've been asked to stay on-topic, and time after time they've refused. One more go, then: this is not your thread. This is not a place where you get to police what we can and cannot say. Your views are utterly irrelevant to the purpose of this thread. You have abused the patience you've been shown and it's now time to stay away. At long last you seem to have some momentum on a general discussion thread, so there's no excuse for you to keep coming here attempting to boss us around.

Our opinions upset you. We get that. We've been getting it for a year. Ignoring the thread's purpose you've tried for a year to tell us where we're going wrong. You've failed miserably. Risibly, laughably, and in some cases degradingly. Give it up, folks. Nothing doing.

If you detect a little, um, frustration here, then good. It's been going on far too long. Behave yourselves and you'll see no more such frustration.

With love from Madrid.
Lynch on Trump, mid-2018: "He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history."

But as frankenhooker said, Lynch's comments are not what the simple headline makes them out to be. That's a fact. And I don't think Lynch's comment has any bearing on the quality of The Return, so it therefore has no business being central to this thread.
