Here is a poor attempt to bash the US political system by inventing to falsehoods about it.
No and no falsehood. It is a reaction to the blinded: "America is the best and America has the best system, America is the best democracy" rhetoric. Clearly and objectively, it is not. The USA is ranked 25th in the Democratic index
this year, classified as a 'Flawed democracies'.
If one isn't prepared to look objectively to your own system, than yeah, I understand one would see it at 'bashing' and 'inventing falshoods'.
You are clearly inferring that by it's design it is responsible for dividing the nation.
No, not by design, but as a consequence. There is a clear difference. An election system with a district system will divide and lead to a two-party system because it is always a case of 'we against them' rhetoric. It is always 'the winner takes all', with no room for other ideas. And as I look to it from a distance, without having strong emotions about it, having a President with its own democratic mandate and have a congress with its own democratic mandate but could be from opposite parties isn't helping either. Since, by design, it is winner takes all, it isn't a system that promotes cooperation but instead promotes clashes.
Where if you looked at it from an objective point of view it's designed (along with the electoral college) to be the fairest and keep the most people represented.
I would put this quote in the box 'fanboy'. How can you pretend to say anything objectively when you realize that the popular vote can be overruled and has been overruled by the electoral college. By design, it isn't the fairest and keeps the most people represented. It is designed to keep most people happy at the time of its invention. That is realism to get things done in the historical context.
Does it work perfect? No but the polarization and such is a result of the toxic propaganda recited hourly on the MSM.
As explained, not really, and just blaming the media is not helping to solve a problem within the system design.
