Trump just personally lashed out at British PM in whiny response to their ambassador’s leaked insults

Earlier today, British Prime Minister Theresa May addressed the recent leak of emails from the United Kingdom’s Ambassador’s to the United States Sir Kim Darroch, in which it was revealed that he described President Trump as “inept.” While most reasonable people would agree his was a reasonable assessment, May took the diplomatic high ground and said that while she has “full faith” in Darroch, she does not agree with his assessment and called the leak “unacceptable”

Apparently, May’s comments were not enough to placate the notoriously insecure Trump, as he has now taken to Twitter to angrily address the scandal. He started off by criticizing May’s handling of Brexit, saying that she and her team have made a “mess” of it and that he personally told her “how it should be done.”

The idea of Trump having any understanding of the intricacies of Brexit when he can’t even wrap his head around as basic a concept as tariffs is downright laughable. In general, it’s wise to do the exact opposite of whatever advice Trump gives.

The president then pivoted to the main reason for his Twitter outburst. He said he does not know Ambassador Darroch but that he knows the man is “not liked or well thought of within the U.S” which sounds like the usual fabricated reputation smearing we’ve come to expect from Trump. “We will no longer deal with him,” Trump added, showing once again that he is willing to throw a wrench into diplomatic situations if he has been personally slighted. The man is pathologically incapable of taking the high road.

Trump ended the tweet by once again insulting Theresa May — who has already announced her resignation — by saying that it’s “good news” that the UK will soon have new a Prime Minister and that the person who impressed him most during his recent visit to the UK was the Queen.

The entire thing reads like the lashing out of a petulant child who has been insulted in the schoolyard, not like an official statement from the President of the United States. We as a country are constantly diminished by this man’s inept behavior and the sooner he is booted to the curb the sooner we can regain some semblance of our national dignity.
