    Personally I have little time for the man as well-but the USA voted him in, but I think it is a pretty disgracefull insult the the ELECTED leader of the world,s most powerfull Democracy and Britain,s main international long time friend and a country that has many times supported UK when the chips fall down.

    How would this mob feel if the Queen visited USA and a blimp of a derogotary image of her in knickers was flown over Washington?
    Wet and pathetic of London,s Mayor to approve it - I had a lot of respect for him as a good sound leader. less now.

    Totally different. Trump is constantly tweeting lies and insults about Britain, about the London Mayor, he even insulted OUR elected leader just before arriving for the visit she invited him on, and is trying to interfere in our politics to boot. The Queen has never done anything remotely like that, and never would. The protest is against Trump personally and he has fully earned it. We shouldn't give him a pass for bad behaviour just because we have been allies with America for a long time.

    Besides, America has no friends now. They elected a leader who promised to put America first and screw the rest of the world, and that is what they got. No point putting in effort where there will be no return.

    This is the British disrespecting the United States. This is the last visit to the UK of any American president. Also no more visits to Washington by UK premiers.

    They're all fair game.

    Of course the communist party required that the chinese newspapers stop directly addressing Trump in their criticism.

    Are they afraid of provoking him? After all - the trade imbalance is so severe that they'll soon run out of US imports to levy against.

    Trump drops the hammer on May - NO bilateral trade agreement with a nonbrexit.

    Meanwhile Trump's letting the queen wait on him.

    Yes - he's definitely someone you want to play psych-ops with.

    LOL.

    And now he readies to consult with Putin.

    Bye, bye.

    If we must ignore twits on twitter, then aren't Americans equally obliged to ignore twits with a blimp? But Trump is not just a twit on twitter. If he represents America, surely that goes both ways? Don't you agree it's much worse for the US president to publically insult May than for ordinary British citizens to insult Trump?

    “This is the British disrespecting the United States”. It appears that sections of the populous are expressing a generally held belief about Trump, that the PM is too polite to express. Here's a good old USA expression that seems highly appropriate. “Good riddance to bad rubbish.” Francis Preston Blair

    It's stunning how little people understand Trump, how shallow everyone is about criticizing him. He is a sign of the times, and for the first time a politician reveals the other half of the bullshit, the ignorance and over-the-counter easy susceptibility of today's people, who mindlessly repeat the catch phrase language so easily communicated through vain imagery, and mean statement distortions of today's vicious and unintelligent media

    “Cowards and deadbeats:” Since your opinion is based on a newspaper opinion. “Small minorities in the core European members of NATO were willing to fight for their country under any circumstances.” Which is true of most people, why would anyone permit their government cart-blanche, to engage in war under any circumstance they chose?
    The same publication gave this summary of Trump. “American fascism: Reading the signs of the times: At what point are democracies truly in danger? What was unimaginable only a few years ago – a US president insulting democratic allies and praising dictators, or calling the free press “enemies of the people,” or locking up refugees and taking away their children – has become almost normal now. When will it be too late to sound the alarm?” http://www.atimes.com/american-fascism-reading-the-signs-of-the-times/
    Trump is the epitome of the Know Nothing movement. “It was primarily anti-Catholic, xenophobic, and hostile to immigration, starting originally as a secret society. The movement briefly emerged as a major political party in the form of the American Party. Adherents to the movement were to reply ”I know nothing“ when asked about its specifics by outsiders, thus providing the group with its common name”

    “30%.” “I think it partly depends on people mean by “fight for country”. and ”Fight For Their Country UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE“
    ”In 1965, a majority of Americans supported U.S. policies in Vietnam; by the fall of 1967, ONLY 35 PERCENT DID SO. For the first time, more people thought U.S. intervention in Vietnam had been a mistake than did not.”
    So Canadians are less aggressive than the US. Any informed person knows that given US direct aggression in Latin America versus Canadian involvement in UN Peace keeping.

    “Cowards/deadbeats/30%” Not really they were into the fight against Hitler long before you guys. You were forced in when Germany declared war on you. The two percent has to be accomplished by 2024 as per agreement, oh you want to change things unilaterally. You mean agreements are to be ignored when ever it suits you. Have you ever met Argentina?
    Moreover, they in contrast to you, have never violated binding international law. Or visited aggression or murder on innocent populations at the behest of your own companies. Which was also contrary to your own national laws, how unAmerican.

    Not really if you knew your history, Check out the War of 1812.
    The US was defeated at the Battle of Queenston Heights(Upper Canada) and a attempt to capture Montreal was repulsed in November 1813. (Lower Canada)
    while the British blockaded the Atlantic coast of the United States and mounted large raids in the later stages of the war. …In September 1814, the British won the Battle of Hampden, allowing them to occupy eastern Maine, and the British victory at the Battle of Bladensburg in August 1814 allowed them to capture and burn Washington, D.C.. ”
    You tread lightly, Canadians are the only nationality that goes to bat for you. Take a look around, there isn't any other nation that I know of that does that. But they certainly wouldn't put up with your BS, and would for sure knock you on your ass.

    Poppy, when I worked in DC there were nut jobs across from the WH every single day - irrespective of the weather.

    Why should tomorrow be any different?

    If MAGA is unable to constructively channel his reaction to a balloon that's his problem.

    Your problem of course is that a second constitutionalist will soon be confirmed and that the vaunted blue wave is now in doubt and a second Donald J Trump presidential term is not outside the scope of possibility.

    When this little saga started I was asked what I wanted.

    My reply: A conservative justice.

    Now, that expectation will be doubled.

    Even the rino, never nevers begrudgingly admit that he's delivered much more than they ever expected of him.

    I'd of been happy with Cruz and could have suffered Rubio but I doubt that either could have passed the litmus of the base.

    The left has stole your democratic party and alienated the independents and the center.

    When aclu has to dodge clients and the splc commits the equivalent of malpractice you know that institutionally the left is shattered.

    The open borders nonsense is a personal affront to every working American - PARTICULAR those of color as they toil the hardest and are most adversely impacted by the importation of cheap labor.

    Those grads supporting the service on over a trillion dollars of debt are similarly impacted by those covered by the visa wavers.

    Your party has some soul searching to do.
