Blowing his own Trump

One of Donald Trump’s biggest fans:

As far as the protests, I have to tell you because I commented on it yesterday.

We left the Prime Minister, the Queen, the Royal Family, there were thousands of people on the streets cheering, and even coming over today there were thousands of people cheering.

And then I heard that there were protests. I said where are the protests, I don’t see and protests.

I did see a small protest when I came, very small.

So a lot of it is fake news I hate to say.

But you saw the people waving the American flag, waving your flag. It was tremendous spirit, and love, there was great love, there was an alliance.

And I didn’t see the protesters until just a little while ago and it was a very very small group of people put in for political purposes, so it was fake news. Thank you.

CNN: Jim Sciutto fact-checks Trump’s ‘fake news’ claim

I think the protests were relatively low key and modest.

But it is clear that not everyone loves Trump as much as much as the President does.

    Well he & the family have all had a formal state dinner at Buckingham Palace & got to hear the Queen & a few other royals say nice, polite things about America, so he can go back home & say they were fine people. Mission accomplished. He’s off to visit one of golf courses in Ireland shortly, I read somewhere.

      • Trump is trumping up stories again.

        Trump; loud fart.

        Trompe is French for a mistake, je crois.

        Let’s hope that this will be his last trump (as in Gabriel’s trump)

        I saw that the Queen avoided his dominating, bone-crusher handshake (very bad manners to grab and crush someone’s hand like that) by holding out two, er, a few fingers. I read in LM Montgomery’s journals that someone told her how to avoid the agony of a bonecrusher handshake; squeeze first and then they can’t.

    Trump’s visit to London to cost £40 million is that more than Trump’s worth.

        Give it a rest, PDT; how childish to downtick every comment I make. You do it to other people too, regardless of what they say; grow up, do.

    The protesters were few in number but the number of supporters I saw even tinier. And thos waving the US flag seemed to be yanks.

    I suspect most people there just stayed home & hoped it would all be over soon.

    • I saw very few flags (US) and the American supporter was very vague and generalising about what he was really like.

      It was very interesting to read the ANZACs’ scathing comments about the US troops turning up at the end of WWI. I suspect that they toned them down for the interviewer, going by ones I’ve read that were made at the time.

        D Day commemorations later this week. I see Scott Morrison is in London, of course Australia pulled out of North Africa after pearl harbour, so went missing in Europe for the rest of the war.
        No Aussies at Alamein , Cassino and so on.

        Lets see if they include the Germans, Finns , Hungarians – their allies in any commemorations. Swedes were supposedly nuetral but allowed transit for German troops ” going on leave” and the Danes , unlike the Norwegians, were non combatants and gave the Germans an easy time.

          There was a strong Danish Resistance and they saved most of their Jews.

          The Norwegians gave the Germans a good time, if you see what I mean. It was them, wasn’t it ?

          One thing that annoyed the ANZACs was that the Americans expected to be saluted (some hope) One American said to an ANZAC that their hats were the same. No, they weren’t, was the reply, the difference was that the ANZAC’s one had been worn for several years by that time. Several of the old ANZACs said that the US troops were badly trained and useless because of this; not the GIs’ fault, necessarily.

          The US made a great parade of being spurred into action by the Lusitania being sunk….more than two years earlier.

          16 nations were represented at the D-Day Commemorations today, including Germany, Belgium, Australia, NZ, Czech Republic, Poland, Denmark, Greece, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, and Slovakia as well as the UK and US.

          I am not sure how many were invited, I know a number were but declined the invitation, but no word on exactly who declined.

      Its a staple of reality television…. saw a Jamie Oliver cooking show where he was showing ‘quick no fuss recipes’ , part of which meant some frozen peas were poured into boiling water.
      “Wonderful” opined Jamie as he did so!

      Superlatives are now the currency of everyday language. Such as passion, absolutely, wonderful and so on mostly as cover for ordinary things

        Pointless superlatives have been around for centuries, of course. Look at divine/deevy and ghastly….

          I think that’s how the poms should’ve handled his visit. you can see from the small size of the protest & some of the woofters who turned up even most of the poms have got outrage fatigue with Trump. Should’ve just let him fly in, dress up, visit Buck House & given him some local Angus cheeseburgers, let him big note, name drop, talk shit & just given him a smile & wave and a motorcycle escort to the airport on his way out. Jb done. Back to trying to sort their own shit out. Who in the UK is going to vote for any politician based on Trump’s ramblings?

            Good thing (and perhaps not so good) is that Trump’s unpredictable .. who else flies into England for a visit with Liz and tells the Brits the Mayor of London is useless.

            Nah they don’t. Quite a few would be happy to see them mothballed. But that’s their head of state system & for the most part it works & they put up with it the same way the yanks put up with the shambles of their own political system because they don’t fancy a change to what it’s evolved to. You can’t separate the poms from the history of their political system any more than you can the yanks from theirs.

              Open your other eye .. Trump didn’t create the corrupt mess that the US is. You’ll be cheering for Clinton next .. she’s running again. No shortage of circuses.

              Come off the grass Maureen. I’ve got both eyes open. American politics is a shit heap. Trump’s just the current shit at the top of the heap.
