Splinter News has an apt headline with a photo of Trump and the royals - Look at this idiot. A moron wearing huge clown pants. Not that the English doofuses look much better.

ETA - I did an image search, because I was unaware that Charles had married his mistress, and wondered who's the other chick in the tiara. The results were amusing!

I'd LOVE to see actual pictures/video of those "tremendous crowds of well wishers". Apparently, the 'fake news' is succeeding in hiding them, but I bet they're the greatest crowds of well-wishers EVER in the history of crowds of well-wishers. The only crowd to ever out well-wish them was the largest crowd EVER to attend an inauguration in the history of inaugurations.

Well, the number of vacuous, virtue-signalling twats "expected" to rock up in in central London tomorrow and **** up everyone else's day depends on who's **** it's pulled from. But I guess there are enough of these jobless ne're-do-wells with literally nothing better to do and zero capacity for independent thought to swell the numbers for the same media organs that form their "opinions" for them.

I’ll do my best to treat you with respect.

Your somewhat over-the-top condemnation of every single Trump protestor implies that you hold the position that there is no legitimate reason whatsoever to protest the POTUS. Are you of the opinion that absolutely nothing that President Trump has said or done is worthy of protest?

I agree,

The big fat (and probably orange) elephant in the room though is the shear number of things obviously worth protesting about in this case, let alone finding a single one.

It's like climate change deniers, the debate is over folks, get with the program.

I'll be quite looking forward to seeing people, even Jeremy Corbyn, take a day off from their jobs to protest the vacuous twat who pulls just about everything from his arse. This sort of thing should happen more often in the states, since most people with a rational viewpoint find it easy to identify the moral degradation he represents simply by listening to him speak (and tweet).

Pretty much. It's clear that Trump is not someone I'd ever want to have beer with, but he saved us (the World, not just the US) from the crooked b!tch of the West.

I was at the Feb 15th 2003 Hyde Park protest (which, NB, was on a Saturday) - that's what I call a legitimate protest. These weak-minded, hypnotised TWATS out protesting the "racism" and "misogyny" of a visiting American President - give me ******* strength.

Being criticized and protested is part of the job of President.
If Trump doesn't like it he can always resign.

Sorry, are you suggesting that well-informed folk cannot come to the reasonable conclusion that Trump is racist and mysogynistic?

I think he's both (this depends on what one means by mysogyny -- he does not hate women, but he treats them with disrespect). I don't think those that disagree are twats. Trump's words are open to many interpretations, thanks to the addled nature of what I'll generously refer to as his thought process. Someone who likes Trump can come up with a reasonable way to deny that he's racist. I don't think it stands up to scrutiny, but I also don't think that they're twats just because they've found a rationale for their simply wrong opinion.

There are many things Trump has said and done that strongly suggests he is racist. Why would anyone be a twat for thinking so and feeling compelled to protest such horrible opinions and behavior?

Is it as childish and puerile (ETA: You don't have to italicize words you think other people don't know to try and show off your grammar savvy, no one is impressed.) as implying everyone that doesn't like your particular flavor of Jesus is a twat?

You've done nothing but name-call and stamp your feet since you've come here. I get that to Trumpers they don't have to apply the same rules to themselves as others, and that they think name-calling and insulting is somehow "winning". However, that doesn't fly 'round these parts. It's a completely ******** stance to take, and you have absolutely zero credibility given that you've spent your last 3 posts calling people twats. Moving on.
