PIERS MORGAN: The real big baby is Sadiq Khan for mocking Trump | Daily Mail Online

The D-Day landings: There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties, with 4,414 confirmed dead

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.”

Amen.

From friends of mine in the UK:

“I have never seen any other visiting head of state spend so long talking to the Guard of Honour before. Thank you Mr President that means a lot.”

My husband told me about it. We were both really impressed. It’s rare that anyone takes so much time with our troops. I know he really respects the military and it was lovely to see.”

He represents the polite and silent majority, whom our ruling class despises.”

“Ruling class,” in this sense, meaning the political elite and their fellow-travelers in the media – not, of course, Her Majesty!
