The UK’s Labour Party just humiliated Trump with a scathing takedown of his bad behavior

President Trump’s trip to the United Kingdom has gone about as bad as it possibly could have.

In an astonishingly short amount of time, the President has managed to trash the sitting Prime Minister, told the British media they were “fake news” for reporting on the things he is recorded said in that same interview, disrespected the Queen during their procession this morning, and openly spouted white nationalist rhetoric in his complaints about the UK’s immigration policies.

He was extremely unpopular to begin with, which was made quite clear by the fact that nearly a quarter of a million Britons turned out in London today to protest Donald Trump’s visit.

While British conservatives have largely remained quiet in their criticism of Trump, too scared of alienating all the unrepentant racist voters they cannibalized from the far-right UKIP party in the last election, the UK’s progressive Labour Party has not been afraid to give Trump the roasting he deserves.

Shadow Secretary and Islington South & Finsbury MP Emily Thornberry wondered where his manners were and even admitted that she felt bad for May after the way Trump had treated her:

“This is a man who has absolutely no discretion, he is rude…she is his host. Donald Trump really ought to listen to his mother. I assume his mother taught him that when you go into someone’s house you don’t insult him. What did his mother teach him? This is not the way you behave.”

Redcar Labour MP Anna Turley went even further, wondering why Trump got to meet the Queen at all after how he’s behaved:

“Trump is a racist and disrespects our nation. Why does he get to meet our Queen? And those Tories saying we should respect him simply because he is elected president — by that logic shouldn’t he respect our prime minister and London’s mayor?”

Labour’s leader, Jeremy Corbyn, criticized Theresa May for enabling and abetting Donald Trump and his xenophobic cruelty in a pre-visit message:

Not content with just that, however, Corbyn gave an impassioned and powerful speech at today’s anti-Trump protest in Trafalgar Square, where he rejected Trump’s hate and his efforts to sow division with a message of unity and solidarity in the face of discrimination.

It’s very gratifying to see the Labour Party express the same disgust and revulsion for Trump that the majority of America does – as well as disdain for his enablers and the bootlickers who support him.

 

 

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
