Let's be honest... America is going through a lot at the minute.And those that are looking in from other countries must think we're crazy.
But it seems as though the things that we're used to are completely incomprehensible to the rest of the world...And they have been pointed out in one particular Reddit thread.
A Reddit thread has gone viral asking non-Americans one big question..."What is your genuine reaction to what’s going on in America right now?" And the responses have definitely been eye-opening...
Let's take a look at some of the best submissions...el_papy

But then you look to the left and there’s a big cruise ship burning as it sinks with people fighting on every deck, and the captain’s throwing gasoline on everything, and you feel a little bit better about the shitty boat you’re in." —SocksPls
"It is a silly place. Let's not go there."—MindTheFuture
via: Getty"'America, amirite?' has replaced talking about the weather. Everyone is dumbfounded by what's going on. On the other hand, it's sad that we know more about US politics than local politics. People protest for BLM in Berlin, but nobody talks about other things going on elsewhere." —n1co_ds
"Canadian here. Like others have said, it’s really all beyond comprehension. To see a once-great nation plunged into chaos and insanity, being ripped apart by a disease that is going unopposed, and is even supported by the country’s own president and many citizens. My country is going well, all things considered, but I’m a bit scared that it’s going to make its way to us. We’re protected by a thin border and border patrol really. The American tidal wave could be disastrous to us if we let them through. We need to keep the borders closed for non-commercial travel."—ATR2400

7."I feel like I'm Stan from South Park, watching Randy and his mates fuck shit up, unable to do anything except just say 'Dude?!' in a really exasperated voice." —Londonloud
8."Confusion. It’s so bizarre, how is it possible? Followed by empathy. A ton of empathy." —EarthlyGeo
9."I’m from Afghanistan. This shit don’t faze me." —sablelord
10."I'm getting used to it. I take a quick look at the newspaper, read something like 'US police kills suspect in custody,' turn the page and get upset because the construction site on the Autobahn takes longer than planned." —realultralord
11."Honestly, it's borderline beyond comprehension. It constantly feels a little more like a poorly written soap opera than real life." —skii9967
I am angry. I have I risk my life at work. I have to risk the life of my wife, my children & my parents because I… https://t.co/9YRoSmKBa8— Dr Farbod Ⓥ (@Dr Farbod Ⓥ)1598789017.0
13."You're so busy flinging shit at each other, you can't see the mess you've made." —DavosLostFingers
14."What. The. Living. Fuck." —MusyTheGamer
15."I used to be a fan of the USA. At present, for me, it's like watching your idol self-destruct live on camera. Really sad to see this." —trojien
via: Getty"For me, the craziest (and sadly, most predicable) thing was how there were Americans protesting face mask mandates. You’d think the most patriotic thing they could’ve done for their fellow countrymen would be to protect them, but nah." —spriteshouter
17."I can't believe how Americans can politicize EVERYTHING?! Wearing masks, postal service...and before these newer topics, universal healthcare, free (or at least vastly cheaper) university, higher taxation, etc. Those things are a reality in most developed countries, but in America it seems like you can just scream 'socialism' and people are against everything. From my German point of view, the two-party system and electoral votes are seriously fucked up, and even the moderate Democrats are pretty right-wing." —raddmusic
18."It looks like a collapse and I think I'm grieving. It's like seeing a great teacher you used to adore slowly become an asshole." —soupsoapsoup
19."In the immortal words of Michael Bluth: 'I don't know what I expected.'" —Terramagi
20."From Canada: your country is having a serious detrimental effect on ours right now, because morons are importing your politics (left and right). It's not your fault that we're so easily influenced, but it's still frustrating." —JamesBourne009

via: Getty"I used to really admire America. The last few years have changed that perception drastically. The blatantly corrupt politics seem to have the whole country in such a tight grip that from the outside it looks like a third world country. Your president is lying constantly and obviously, yet he has outspoken followers in the millions who just disregard his lies." —wangsigns
