Trump Gets Snubbed By British Parliament
Really? President Obama left office with mad respect in much of the world, a Nobel Peace Prize and a 57% approval rating at home.
It only took Trump eight days to undo the eight years of hard work President Obama has done to restore our international rep damaged by the GW Bush presidency. World leaders were horrified about the prospect of you becoming POTUS even before you got elected.
There were protests across the planet including Antarctica specifically aimed at you just one day into your mispresidency.
President Obama, BTW was the first American POTUS ever to be given that honor.
John Bercow, the Speaker of the House of Commons, has announced that because of his racist and sexist attitudes, he will not be extended an invitation to speak to a joint session of Parliament. .
Speaker Bercow said he was 'strongly opposed' to Trump speaking to the House of Commons and that being invited to speak before Parliament is not an 'automatic right' but an 'earned privilege'.
In addition to this being a huge embarrassment to Trump, it's also a political headache for British PM Theresa May, who invited him come to Great Britain during her US visit This also comes as 2 million Britons have signed a petition urging that the state visit not happen
Somewhere in northwest DC President Obama is probably laughing at you.
And so am I.
