Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Donald Trump will be denied the historic honour of addressing parliament during his state visit to the UK next month, government sources have confirmed. In a major snub to the US President, lingering hopes of him delivering a speech to MPs and peers have been dashed following defiant opposition by Commons Speaker John Bercow, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and others.

That's OK. He only does campaign rallies anyway; if it's not one, he'd turn it into one.

See, it's all about the Donald.

If the bloated child rapist isn't getting pantsed by China, North Korea or Iran, he's getting the middle finger from American allies. What a loathsome scheissestain the deplorables elected.

and you KNOW that the invitation extended by the Queen is simply England acknowledging the historic relationship between the two governments. she knows that everyone knows that it's protocol and has nothing to do with affirmation.

Good.

Everybody with a soul should be slighting, ignoring and marginalizing the Orange S---stain.

It may just be protocol to the oh-so-proper Brits but it's a symbolic middle finger to Trump.

Conjuring up some new derogatory names for the Queen should keep him busy for a while.

Maybe we should withdraw from Europe completely, including the Americans soldiers burred there. It would save about 200 billion, What can you say Europe has given the world in the last century worth a damn beyond a couple of world wars and despotic governments? Why should we protect those who will not defend themselves and hate us for the effort. May Islam dominate the whole nihilistic and valueless peasant population. Seems the European Union is doing every thing they can to facilitate that end.

British Normandy veterans are furious after US officials banned them from visiting Omaha beach on the 75th D-Day anniversary because of tight security for Trump's visit next month

F them. They are not disrespecting Trump - they are disrespecting the entire country and the 50% of voters that put him into office. Then again, the British government has ceased being legitimate with their disregard of the BREXIT vote. I just hope they realize the precedent they are setting here. Whether the Euro-trash likes it or not, the US is the leader of the free world and their current freedom is the result of US guns and men willing to sacrifice for a free world. Europeans - especially the English and French have always had an inflated sense of self that far surpassed their contributions and station in life post 1900. Time for them to fend for themselves.

I guess that is the difference between us. I don't care if they are disrespecting a single American - much less nearly 50% of the population. We are a family after all and I will defend you like every family defends the loser uncle when he is attacked by those outside the family. You can say whatever you want about Trump - assuming you are an American. British have no such right. It should be offensive to all Americans.

Bending over and accepting insults from lesser nations is why the Liberals are stereotyped as Beta, Cuckholds, and Low-T. That is what you are doing. We can rule the world with fear or love - we tried love and after 75 years of hand out after hand out to Europe, they want to disrespect us as a nation now. That does not mean that we need to burn it to the ground GoT style - but to continue to bend over for them is ridiculous beta behavior.

If you are not an American, than your opinions means as much as a fart from Tremaine. How insecure are in your native country that you obsess on a US political blog?

But my point stands, Americans can insult Trump. Americans that do not defend Trump against attacks by non-citizens are Betas. Own it.

Certainly. And still equal in value to yours.

Ira,

Given the outsized influence the US has on the world I think it's natural for foreigners to take a strong interest in US politics, especially when they reside just north of us.

I oftentimes find foreigners' perspectives to be the most interesting and sometimes more insightful due to the fact they don't live here.

Plus, Redial smokes a mean brisket and any American should respect that.

#26 | Posted by bored In reality Obama snubbed him first. Remember that episode where he left him cooling his heals in an office for a couple of hours? Bad behavior for a head of state to another head of state.

Trump is getting exactly what he has earned and deserves.

Why would anyone defend the actions of a hateful liar and fool?

Unless you are also one.
