Well it appears that the folks in London are just as thrilled with Donald Trump as we are.

Thousands of protesters have marched on Parliament in London to demand that the British government withdraw its invitation to U.S. President Donald Trump for a state visit. 

Criticism of Conservative British Prime Minister Theresa May has swelled since her Washington visit to meet Trump last month, when she confirmed plans for a return visit by Trump to Britain expected in the summer. 

Saturday's demonstration in the British capital involved a two-mile (3-kilometer) march of several thousand people from the U.S. embassy to the Houses of Parliament. Protesters chanted "Theresa May, shame on you!"

The Parliament is set to debate plans for Trump to visit London, but clearly if he does he can expect just as many protesters there as he constantly see here in the US.

And this is not just happening in English speaking countries either.

There are protests happening around the world against Donald Trump and his Muslim ban.

Let's face it, the man is REALLY bringing the world together.

Against him.

    He will have to send a body double into public, from his bunker "presidency".

    Reportedly, the Queen is pretty pissed about this. She has no direct control over issuing the invites, but it has been tradition that new leaders aren't invited to make an official state visit until they have been in office at least one year. President Obama was scheduled after about 18 months.

    The Queen is mandated to stay neutral, but she does host a reception for official visits. She's now being put into the position of seeming to endorse Hair Drumpf. Major faux pas on Theresa May's part, and the opposition is not being shy about letting her know.

    1. I think if the Queen does not want to host a reception she will find a way not to do it. Diplomatically.

      Yes, May stuck her foot in it.

      Parliament has already voted that Trump will NOT address them.

      So it remains to be seen if this is officially a state visit or he's just visiting.

      If Trump is smart, he won't go. If he does, he'll not only be met with YUUUGE crowds of protesters but risks some pretty official snubs from the palace and Parliament.

    He has absolutely no desire for peace.
    "I'll show YOU" that you don't revel in my greatness, in spades!

    I'm wondering if perhaps this may be the downfall of May. After all, PM's have failed a Vote of Confidence for far smaller offenses.

    It could certainly solve the problem for the Parliament since actions of a "disgraced" PM can be looked at as having less "authority".


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
