    Let’s see how this one turns out. Looks like there were some changes for his trip made. Let’s see how big of a fool he makes out of himself this next coming week. I am surprised they got his trip approved due to many people protesting his trip to the UK.

    We all know Japan trip was a failure which you can see from stock market last two days after he returned.

    Surely someone in the Whitehouse has created a list of things that "trigger" Trump by now?

    There's no shortage.

    He's now started arguing with the new American Duchess, whatshername... What is it about Trump that makes him a wart on the nose of humanity?

    Well, exactly what PM will he be dealing with? May is a lame duck - is Trump going to pick a favorite from the contenders?

    Well of course. He probably wants to play golf there.

    The Museum of London wants to acquire the baby blimp and the bikini balloon.

    Too bad that Ryanair does not fly to the US yet, as usual.

    I truly like this.
    She can call the President a misogynist, racist, etc. but he can't say - answering to a very precise question - that she was nasty in her comments. Talk about TDS.

    it’s not new:
    “On the European trip, the advance men’s first exposure to the world of diplomacy, they solved their problems by acting as if they were running a political stopover in Des Moines. They paid no attention whatsoever to our ambassadors, many of whom they distrusted as lame‐duck Democratic holdovers, and only minimum heed to the sovereign governments that were our hosts. When Ehrlichman sought to prescribe a guest list for a dinner at 10 Downing Street, David Bruce, our Ambassador in London, who had seen too much in a distinguished diplomatic career to be intimidated by a new Administration, cabled: “Surely the absurdity of telling the British Prime Minister whom he can invite to his own home for dinner requires no explanation.” Other advance men in Paris, surveying the residence of our Ambassador there in preparation for the President’s dinner for de Gaulle, gave rise to further palpitations. They noticed some photographs of John Kennedy. Special high‐level dispensation was required before Ambassador Sargent Shriver—married to President Kennedy’s sister Eunice—was permitted to keep the pictures of his brother‐in‐law on visible display. But these occasional inanities aside, the advance men did well with the logistics—seven stops in seven days without a hitch—and everything clicked into place in a remarkably well‐planned exercise.”
    ...
    “Above all, the advance team held itself responsible for ensuring that Nixon was seen by others only in the most favorable light. This sometimes led to absurdities. On a State visit to Ottawa in 1972, an advance man decided that the tan furniture in Pierre Trudeau’s office would not flatter Nixon on television and took it upon himself to redecorate the Prime Minister’s private office with blue‐covered sofas. He was stopped at the last minute by an incredulous associate of Trudeau almost incoherent with rage.”

    Turkey's leader, Saudi's leader, Mugabe, etc.... hardly any protests in comparison, but they choose to pick on President Trump, the elected leader of Britian's strongest ally. Hypocrisy. Go figure. I rarely concur with Piers Morgan on just about anything, but he nails it in this interview:


    TDS is strong with these folks indeed.

    She called him misogynistic and divisive before the election. Both of those things are unequivocally true. You threw in the racist part.

    Do you really think insulting a celebrity over three year old comments is something to "truly like"?

    And I disagree with her statements.

    He made a comment after a question on the specific comments. It's not that he said it out of the blue. He was asked about the insults she threw at him, he said he didn't know she was nasty, but she's ok and she'll do great. This is a fake scandal as fake as it can get.

    Very good points by Morgan.

    Great. You disagree with unequivocally true statements made three years ago on a comedy show.

    I notice you didn't answer the question.

    There is no need to answer because you're reframing my "truly like" that was a jest of the fake scandal, not his comments.
