Trump Meets British Humor

U.S. President Donald Trump is currently visiting Britain. He is not much liked in that country. A recent poll shows that only 21% of the British people have a positive a opinion about him.

Some young man even prepared a special welcome message for Trump:

A teenager has mowed an anti-Trump message, complete with a giant penis, into the grass of his family home ahead of the US president’s UK state visit.
...
The A-level student hopes that the US president will spot his creation as Air Force One approaches Stansted Airport, which is near Hatfield Heath, on Monday morning.

It is unlikely that Trump saw that picture from the air.

But the British security that escorted Trump from Stansted into London seems have borrowed the idea.

Stansaid Airport @StansaidAirport - 9:32 utc - 3 Jun 2019

Well done our security escort team! The President is now arriving at the U.S. Ambassador's residence off Regent's Park. Good work people.

Stansaid Airport is a humorous account. There are several other pictures that play with the theme. We can not vouch for their veracity.

Cute, but innefective.

The European Center-Left is slowing sleep-walking to the arms of the European liberal elites -- just like the SPD in 1918-19.

I have a picture of the side of a double decker bus in London from 1986 that had a Sharpe calculator ad with a picture of Ronnie Raygun sporting an Einstein hairdoo and words that went....Sharpe calculators can make anyone a genius

No one likes him over here in U.K. ! Even the people who say they like him are just trying to save face,for being fooled by the rasmatas of his election, same as Brixit ! Even the politicians and Royals don’t like his boorish ways!
And here’s a view from the public and police.

So... a giant penis has entered Britain? Perhaps they complain, but I get the distinct impression that the British like that sort of treatment from Uncle Slaughter.

It is a photoshop of a still from a video of Putin's motorcade in 2012.

That’s a very unusual formation of security cars around that limousine out on a highway. In 2007, heading south on Interstate 95 (NH Turnpike) in southern New Hampshire I passed the illegitimate guy going north to Kennebunk Port Maine. There was nothing like that. There was a line of state police across every lane, a lone “civilian” stuck behind them, a secret service van or two, then two limousines, then another van with security, then an ambulance. There was a helicopter scouting up ahead the group. That was the most exotic obvious security. The cars and vans were traveling at say 80 MPH.

But all the southbound lane had was a big temporary flashing sign saying “do not stop”–it was simply a mobile traffic sign reprogrammed for the day. The north and south lanes were divided by perhaps 100 meters of grass.

I can attest that yes, that looks like the right limousine, since Obama passed by me, and other pedestrians stopped by police, as he crossed the centre of my US city in 2015. He too had nothing like that male member shaped count of cars.

Trump had high praise for Boris Johnson, but nothing for Jeremy Corbyn. Of course Zionist Trump wouldn't have anything nice to say about Corbyn. I hope it ends up as the kiss of death for Johnson! So is Trump gonna make a deal to get Assange on a fast track over to the U.S. Federal prison system??? Heaven help Assange when he gets to that point, if he survives the summer. Trump can go to hell where he belongs!

Jay @12

Just guessing, but I would expect Obama to have been surrounded by a convoy arranged in the inviting pattern of a vagina, cuz, ya` know... identity politics and all.

This obviously fake photograph doesn't look great underneath your request for money.

Posted by: Boris | Jun 3, 2019 8:44:27 PM | 16

William Gruff:

Nope, there was no convoy surrounding Obama's limousine.

There was a lead car, and there was a following van or two. Then there were local police of motorcycles. (However the city street was blocked to other drivers for more than a mile. Nor could pedestrians cross for 20+ minutes.)

Given what Obama+Hillary [and the French and the UK] did for women's rights in Libya, he's no feminist or pro-woman politician.

Trump really is the embodiment of the ugly American sterotype. No wonder his fans are as thin-skinned as him, in spite of the horrible things that they feel are fair game to say about *everyone* else.

I wonder if the royals were seething or laughing after being with him. Perhaps both.

Everything in the picture gives the game away about it not being from the UK - wrong side of the road, non-UK road markings, wrong colour of Police outrider bikes (they would be white) and the biggest clue of all is the overly manicured and (probably) heavily watered grass .... it's a rampant weed in these rain drenched islands and grows everywhere without the slightest effort. It's enough to keep the bloody stuff in check with regular mowing.

Pat Lang's conclusion after watching the broadcast of Trump's inspection of the Guard assembled in honour of his UK visit...

"Pilgrims, I have been in a hell of a lot of parades, guard mounts and the like and IMO the president's desire to talk to the men was altogether charming."

Trump comes insulting London's mayor and PM May, offers to colonize the UK starting with its NHS, and the Queen bows to him and his family of crooks. Let me guess? The Brits are desperate?

Posted by: Mina | Jun 4, 2019 4:14:50 AM | 24

Trump said Boris Johnson would make a good priminster ! This is what Johnson said about Trump (old vidio)
No houner among theaf’s.
It’s script written fantasy to fool the public. As true as a tv soup or farther Christmas !
Trumps the real stooge here meeting and grovelling to his boss’s, they (remember) transend national boundary’s !
The establishment (builderberg) will take Trump out in the blink of a eye when their done with him.

The Brits and Euros can have their fun. And yet, when Trump tells them to jump, and they ask permission to come down. There is no clearer exhibit of the power of the American Empire that the abject submission of Europe to Trump's imposition of sanctions on Russia, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela...

The laughter at Trump is nervous laughter. The laughing people are afraid.

I have been thinking about the timing of the extrusion of Assange from the Ecuadorian Embassy, in violates of Educator's own constitution and the timing of that event with Trumps arrival in the UK, convenient the Swiss court rejects demands to remove
Assange http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/51714.htm and now it is reported Assange is so sick he can't talk to no one as he is confined to a bed inside of hospital which is inside of a prison..humm I have coupled those thoughts with the deadly, but uncanny recent silence of Journalist everywhere to be silent about Assange. Upon reflection https://www.rt.com/op-ed/460935-julian-assange-changed-world/ .. my senses suggest it all comes to this

Trump might be interested to talk to Assange.. maybe a deal? ..something is up... and it all seems to be merging in time and place in UK.. ..? anyone else get that feeling?

Posted by: snake | Jun 4, 2019 7:23:18 AM | 27

The most humourous part is the plain fact that Trump is dead set to pounce on post-Brexit Blighty with chlorinated chicken, access to the NHS for US healthcare companies and all the bad tidings only the art of the dealmaker can bring to bear.

LMAO. You fake lefties would all be better-off....much better-off....remaining in the EU "with British characteristics" or whatever you require to save face....and fighting for better wages and benefits from below.

Globalism isn't going away from England post-Brexit....it will simply become more costly and more Americanised.

The revolution will not be nationalised.

Remember, you read it here first.

I just love the notion that any and all news outlets are free to cut, paste, slander, lie and invent whatever the "anonymous sources" need to expel. Giuliani was onto something when he let it slip that we live in a Post Truth World....

The great part of it all is that solid independent journalism like this site an otheres like it are doing the actual work of attempting to piece together a composite model of geopolitical events. Meanwhile the MSM is busily maintaining the cover story as more an more water trickles through the dike.

Thanks Hoarsewhisperer @ 23.

The British elites may not like our president but as a former enlisted man in the U. S. Navy, I can bet that once that video gets out widely, that the British enlisted ranks will warm to him, as ours already have. He showed great respect to their military and their Queen, who they would die for, and I believe this will trickle down to the common people as well.

(Caitlin's opinion of Trump)

I like Caitlin. Her assessment is more or less true, in the context she adopted. Can't speak for PL, or to PL because I've only ever lurked at SST (with one exception which he deleted and then whinged about), but given that her 'truths' are true I doubt that he'd disagree with her observations.

But Caitlin did slip up on one minor factoid when she asked...
"And what’s going on with that freak in the red dress?"
(That's the Beefeater behind HM QEII's right shoulder)

The answer is simple. Ceremonially, QEII frequently fulfills the role of The Mad Hatter, but on this occasion she probably realised that it would be hard to outdo the Madness off a Beefeater's headgear and decided not compete for the limelight...

Posted by: Hoarsewhisperer | Jun 4, 2019 11:21:25 AM | 36

@ james with the Catlin Johnstone link about the Liberace Grifter.....thanks

What Catlin is saying has been written in comments here before. Trump is an "honest" face of empire with all its ugliness

Empire is led by people that think themselves exceptional meat sacks, unlike the rest of us pond scum. It is going to be so interesting to see the evolution to a merit based society because the inherited elite and their hangerson will certainly struggle with their exceptionalism for a while I suspect

Re: poll that most Brits don't like djt:

1. Were only Londoners and urban dwellers polled?
2. If so, can we assume that most urbanites who don't like djt also fall into the "remain" category? That makes sense to me because on a superficial level, djt embodies a raging nationalism that detests that rejecting and dismissive attitude the urban elite have for the rural peasantry. Of course, this is a surface level condemnation. This organized "welcoming" is not informed enough to detest djt for his Israel-first stance, among others. They just fall into his trap for hating him for his television-star persona.

Jokes on the Brits.

of course it is bimbos like pl that will be voting for trump again, and frankly given the piss poor options, i understand this too.. the only group that is better at holding a gun to their foot - like trump - is the democrats at this point in time.. the 2 party system is for the birds... tulsi doesn't have a chance.. the usa is run by the 1% and it is all about money and servitude to wall st, and the corporations... the left is non existent at this point..

:) ! Brit humor can’t be beat. Haughty, ironic, and oh-so-barbed, from the uppers. Challenging, sarcastic, and blunt from the others...

These efforts, as the Blimp, seem rather crude. One needs to take into account that the hoped-for audience is extremely large, which puts the kibosh on subtelty of any kind!

Trump dislike/hate in GB is odd, in view of Brexit, as the US / 5-eyes are touted as traditional allies and potential huggy trade partners - one would expect a rapprochement with all of them, irrespective of who is Prez.

Hola! - the MSM, incl. the Gvmt broadcaster BBC are rigorously anti-Trump, as they are globalists (like e.g. US Dems, F Socialists, … ) as opposed to narrow-minded ‘nationalists.’ Because:

a) they are paid for that, and they live in a bubble that has as 1st aim, defend own interests

b) their perceived function and reach is based on the truism that plebs understanding and views are manufactured by them (via news, TV, Movies, standard papers, subservient bloggers, control of internet, magazines, etc.) and so can form a new world view though it 'costs', to be paid promptly, to them.

Trump-bashing fits with the shame-and-blame punitive, Anglo attitudes, but that is another point..

The bloke is a total penis and I think the majority of the world is shocked and amused at the same time as to exactly how he could EVER become the leader of a country...especially one as big and important as the USA! Someone so boorish, a liar, a womaniser and a corrupt and uneducated human being...with such a poor grasp of reality! Luckily for the World its not a job for life and he gets 8 years max! Hopefully next time they'll elect a proper leader and not someone so childish who is full of trash pub talk...

Brits appear to be obsessed with penises. From what I have seen of the modern UK male, this is quite appropriate.

It's mainly the Media that don't like him.
Many people think he has a different approach to life than die hard politicians who promise much and deliver little.
That's common on both sides of the Atlantic.
The UK does not elect a Prime minister, whatever political group wins the election will have named their leader before the election but we still only vote for a local representative.
The current fight for a new PM is between people the public generally don't trust and don't like. We, ordinary people, don't get a say.
