Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 17, 2017

Donald Trump waving from the Queen's royal carriage is not a scenario many would have foreseen a year ago, but it has become a very real prospect, forcing security services to plan an unprecedented lockdown. The White House has made clear it regards the carriage procession down the Mall [to Buckingham Palace] as an essential element of the itinerary for the visit currently planned for the second week of October, according to officials. Security sources have warned, however, that the procession will require a "monster" security operation, far greater than for any recent state visit.

He just wants the close confines of a carriage to make it easier for him to grab her by the whatever.

Fine--let him take the carriage for a spin around the parking lot, before his visit with Prince Charles and Camilla. I'm sure the Queen will be detained in a previously-scheduled commitment, and Duchess Kate and all the other interesting Windsors will be far, far away...

Really? "Arrogant" is what got to you? Deceitful and greedy slime ball had no effect?

Quite obviously Trump really does see himself as royalty. The most dangerous person ever elected President in regards to continuing our democracy.

Waaaah waaaaah waaaaah...

The tradition of world leaders taking a carriage ride along the mall from the Royal Mews to Buckingham Palace with the Queen is not entirely unusual.

While President Obama chose not to ride in such a carriage during his U.K. visit, most other world leaders -- including Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Chinese President Xi Jinping -- have taken such carriage rides during state visits.

Obama chose to use a bullet- and bomb-proof car during his visit, which was seen as a breach of protocol and an insult to some in the British Isles

Sounds like the "insisting" is merely adhering to a long established protocol.

You equate "not entirely unusual" and "a long established protocol."?

Vladimir Putin, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Chinese President Xi Jinping --

Glad you hold your President to the same standard as Violent, Oppressive Dictators and 3rd World puppets.
