President Trump Insults Mayor Khan on Day One of London Visit

From the official Twitter account of U.S. President Donald J. Trump:

There so many things wrong with this. Where to begin? The feud with London Mayor Sadiq Khan started in 2016 when Khan, a Muslim, criticized Trump’s Muslim Ban. And Khan wrote a piece for The Guardian just two days prior to Trump’s current London visit that compared him to fascists.

Well that didn’t sit well with our volatile president, so he responded by saying Khan is “nasty” to the visiting POTUS but immediately insults Khan with his own nasty rebuttal. Trump says Khan should focus on crime in London while he sits in a plane pounding out a series of petulant tweets in which he calls Khan a “stone cold loser” and insults him further with a comment about his height by comparing him to the “terrible” but tall NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Then he closes with how he looks forward to being “a great friend to the UK”. So presidential!

It’s no wonder that hundreds of thousands of Londoners greeted their “great friend” with protests, like this message mowed on a lawn that could be seen from Air Force One as it descended for landing:

And the now famous Trump Baby Blimp with with its pugnacious face and weaponized cell phone in hand.
