President Trump’s long-awaited trip to the UK has not gone smoothly at all for him so far. The British people have done a masterful job of trolling him at every opportunity, going out of their way to make sure that he knows he’s not welcome — and his reception isn’t going to warm up anytime soon, especially since his meeting with Prince William and Kate Middleton approaches.
Trump’s 2012 tweets about the tabloid scandal that followed the paparazzi photographing Kate Middleton’s sunbathing nude have begun recirculating as their meeting approaches.
They paint him for who he really is — a crude misogynist who blamed Middleton for the paparazzi invading her privacy and then defended the jackal photographers. He implicitly defended the jackals and their greed while admonishing the woman for leaving herself vulnerable — an attitude that will likely earn him a chilly reception indeed at tonight’s dinner.

His insults to her injury are just one of the many, many, many reasons that the British are disgusted to see the President arrive in the United Kingdom. In fact, the Labour Party’s Momentum wing put together a handy video of all the ways that the President has burned his bridges with the British people.

Whether it’s the accusations that the British helped President Obama spy on his campaign, or his unending and extremely racist feud with London’s mayor Sadiq Khan, or his support for Brexit, or any of the other incessant displays of barbarism and bigotry that the president has made over the past year, it’s clear that Trump will find no friends in Buckingham Palace — and for good reason.
