Donald Trump had a meltdown of sorts over the Trump Baby blimp saying he feels “unwelcome” in London since it will be flying over Parliament Square. “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London,” he told the UK Sun.
He continued, “I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
Trump also said a poll recently came out that shows him beating Abraham Lincoln as the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party. He told the Sun, “You know, a poll just came out that I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party. Beating Lincoln. I beat our Honest Abe.”
That’s a f*cking lie.
Um, there were no telephones when Lincoln was president and presidential approval polling didn’t start until several decades later.
The White House is in full clean-up mode after he insulted Prime Minister Theresa May during the same interview, saying she wrecked Brexit and that he backed former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson as the next prime minister. He also said the US-UK trade deal is off.
Trump also blamed London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan for the terrorist attacks against the city. Um, Queen Elizabeth should cancel her tea with this repugnant POS. I am sure he will find a way to leave her aghast and totally disgusted.

White House tries damage control after Trump’s Sun interview. @PressSec issues statement saying POTUS “likes & respects PM May very much,” thinks she’s a “very good person” & “never said anything bad about her…He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the PM here in the UK”
