British Trump Protest
Capital ‘B’ Blimey!

Now that President Donald Trump’s gone and Angry Baby Blimp’s air’s been let out, the British media and pot-banging protesters can go back to bobbing soggy crumpets in Sunday teacups.

The big news today? ‘The Royal family ‘snub’ Trump: Prince Charles and Prince William “forced” the Queen to meet the US president alone after they refused to take part in his four-day-tour of Britain’.

.

“The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the trip” (Daily Mail, July 15, 2018).

“Apparently” is the word that tells the whole story here.

Whatever happened to Prince Charles and Prince William “forcing”  the Queen to meet the U.S. president alone?

Could it be that “the first two in line for the throne had previous engagements”?

Apparently!

Nah, not nearly salacious enough!

The un-hyped truth, down-copy:

“Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania.” (Daily Mail)

“However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen.

“A Whitehall official said that while the monarch will do her duty, the wider family were not as ecstatic as they were when the Obama’s visited.”

 

“A Whitehall official” is the British equivalent to the American networks’ “unnamed sources”.

“‘This business of Prince Charles and Prince William not being there for the Trump visit was a snub,’ the source said, adding that they ‘simply refused’ to attend.

‘It’s a very, very unusual thing for the Queen to be there on her own. Usually she is accompanied by somebody.’”

Let’s face it, the British MSM don’t usually get to cover what the royals say, only what they WEAR.

With the Angry Baby Blimp bobbing up and down blowing with any breeze over Parliament, the British MSM were out on the hunt for Trump bugaboos.

“The president was late for his first meeting with the 92-year-old monarch who was waiting at Windsor Castle for between 12 and 15 minutes. He also turned his back on the Queen, marching ahead of her as they walked past troops - in what was a serious breach of protocol. (Daily Mail)

“And when the first couple did finally arrive, Trump almost immediately breached royal protocol - offering the Queen a handshake instead of bowing.”

“Yet the president’s biggest faux pas came when he was invited to join the Queen to inspect the guard of honor.

“Trump turned his back on the monarch, marching ahead of her as they walked past the troops - in what was a serious breach of protocol.”

But Trumps biggest faux pas was nothing compared to the “How-dare-he!” outrage of the British tabloid the Daily Mirror, which used its front page on Saturday to hit President Trump for sitting in former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s chair.

“How dare you,” the headline on the Mirror’s front page reads over an image of Trump striking a pose in the chair. (The Hill, July 14, 2018)

“You insult our country, attack our [National Health Service], embarrass our Queen, undermine our ‘special relationship,’ humiliate our [prime minister]…and then smugly pose in Winston Churchill’s armchair,” the front page states.

It’s not acceptable for Trump to perch in Churchill’s chair, but A-OK for Hillary Clinton, in an interview with a British newspaper last week to compare herself to great wartime statesman Prime Minister Winston Churchill while responding to a question about being a polarizing figure.  (Fox News, June 29, 2018)

“I’m sure they said that about Churchill between the wars, didn’t they?” she told The Guardian when asked if she should withdraw from public life to help heal divisions in the U.S., given her reputation. 

“The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee then immediately claimed she wasn’t actually comparing herself to Churchill, before going on to elaborate on the analogy. 

“Churchill went into the political wilderness between the two World Wars and during that time was a key voice criticizing then-Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s policy of appeasement toward Adolf Hitler. He would go on to become prime minister himself and help lead the Allies to victory in World War II.
 
“The Guardian report notes that Clinton made the Churchill reference “a fraction too quickly for the line to sound spontaneous.” 

Take a close gander at the photo of Churchill’s visibly shabby chair.  If the Daily Mirror cared—really cared—about the chair, they would be leading the charge to send it out for expert repair.

Little wonder that Donald Trump Jr. mocked the ‘resistance’ over ‘baby blimp’ in London, labeling them “batshit crazy.”

 

He was responding to an image of protesters gathered in front of a 20-foot-tall “Trump baby blimp,” which flew over the protests in London.”
Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!  The sound of the air being let out of Trump Angry Baby Blimp.

It’s all over now but the bragging rights.

All that’s left for the 250,000 London malcontents is to go home to throw darts at the Trump pictures pasted to the back of their bedroom doors.

That’s all that’s left now until London Mayor Sadiq Khan approves of another stupid idea.
