Trump is in the UK for a state visit to honor the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. So how has Mayor of London responded to this trip? With quite staggeringly offensive rudeness.
I was not, I confess, a big fan of Piers Morgan when he was here in the U.S.; but since his return to his home country, he has actually evolved into something closely resembling a decent human being! I found his comments in this opinion piece to be, for the most part, quite appropriate. Especially this:
“As for those champing at the bit to protest against Trump this week, with their abusive placards, mocking chants, and pathetic baby blimp, I simply say this: the only reason you can do so in this country is because of what happened 75 years ago on D-Day. The heroic British and American forces (with the help of other Allied forces too) that fought that day did so to protect your freedoms.”
