Another country visited, more mobs who only seem to watch the fake news.
While President Donald Trump visited dignitaries of the United Kingdom away from the square mile or so that is actually London proper, a few hundred thousand stopped in the center of the city for a little protest. Just like the rest of the people around the world who never seemed to follow him other than getting talking points from the mainstream media, the crowd carried placards and signs that, well, repeated the talking points.
Under a brilliant blue sky, demonstrators streamed through central London’s main streets carrying placards saying “Dump Trump” and “Keep your tiny hands off women’s rights”. Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn was among the throng….
But some Britons see the U.S. leader as crude, volatile, unreliable and opposed to their values on a range of issues. Those demonstrating against Trump included women’s rights campaigners, supporters of immigration and LGBT groups.
“Here, queer and angry,” said one banner. “Immigration is not a crime,” said another.
And then they flew that stupid baby balloon that was supposed to be an infantile Donald Trump Tweeting on a smartphone.
Some of the people in Britain actually think they could get under the man’s skin with this crap, just as the fake news told them would happen because he is so “thin-skinned.”
President Donald Trump is from Queens. They don’t do thin skinned there.
Trump told the Sun newspaper he was avoiding the capital as much as possible.
“I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, (there is) no reason for me to go to London,” he said.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has clashed repeatedly with Trump on Twitter, defended the demonstrations as free speech.
“The idea that we restrict freedom of speech, the right to assemble, the right to protest because somebody might be offended is a slippery slope,” Khan told BBC Radio.
The official pro-Trump rally is on Saturday after President Trump is already in Scotland for the weekend.
Funny, even in the United States, where Trump Derangement Syndrome is very real, the Democratic talking points have been dismissed. The Brits are really lagging behind on this one.
