BRITAIN: No Royal Treatment For Trump’s Visit

The London Evening Standard reports:

Donald Trump is set to visit Britain early in 2018 – but for a stripped-down trip that will not include staying with the Queen. Diplomats are discussing plans for a “working visit” by the US president that will be shorn of the pomp and flummery of a full-blown State Visit. And instead of a red carpet event to showcase the special relationship, it is likely to form part of a tour of several countries by Mr Trump.

The downgrading of Mr Trump’s first trip as President to the UK follows the huge controversy when Theresa May tried to steal a march on other world leaders by offering a State Visit as guest of the Queen that was intended to take place this summer, breaching a convention that the honour is usually reserved for a president’s second term. There were threats of boycotts and mass protests when the VIP treatment was announced – with Commons Speaker John Bercow declaring that the President would not be allowed to address the House of Commons.

More from Newsweek:

Trump will miss out on a perk enjoyed by so many other world leaders, including two prior U.S. presidents and, notably, Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin arrived on the first state visit to Britain by a Russian leader since 1874, and all the bells were rung and all the whistles blown. He even got to ride in a horse-drawn carriage with the queen.

Surely you recall this headline from April.

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    And thus little donnie cancels the trip.

    • friendlynerd

      I want a tweet-storm about how the queen is head of a failing monarchy, maybe even a nickname. Sadly it’s not even that improbable…

      • ChrisMorley

        Brits disrespectfully call her Brenda.

        • David Walker

          A new one to me. Why Brenda?

          • ChrisMorley

            Private Eye is a satirical fortnightly and it’s their nickname. This came after the 1969 BBC documentary Royal Family, after which the magazine gave each member of the Royal Family working class nicknames, as though they were characters in a soap opera. The Duke of Edinburgh is “Keith”, Princess Margaret was “Yvonne” and Diana, Princess of Wales was dubbed “Cheryl”. Prince Charles is “Brian”.

          • David Walker

            I like this. Thank you.

  • Lazycrockett

    I wouldn’t let him in the fucking country.

    • Skokieguy [Larry]

      Or we lock the door on the way out.

      • Todd Allis

        Both! No visa, passport revoked, and he can live in an airport.

        • Bad Tom

          He would never figure out how to make money by returning baggage carts.
          Like Tom Hanks did.

      • Robert Flanagan

        Let’s move the country while he’s gone!

    • Chucktech

      With the… “leadership”… that this asshole (attempts to) project, there really is no reason on earth that Trump needs to go ANYwhere. Just stay the fuck here and perhaps he’ll be less of an embarrassment than he WILL be on any trip abroad.

    • ChrisMorley

      Europe is still strying to school him in global politics 101. For world peace. Someone’s got to do it.

      • Chucktech

        Trying to school an ineducable moron is a fool’s errand.

        • ChrisMorley

          It’s a survival thing.

    • Steve Smith

      Nobody wants him in the fucking country. Theresa May thought she could charm him into agreeing some trade deal to deflect attention from the oncoming Brexit fiasco, but even she now realises that he is completely untrustworthy.

  • Adam Stevens

    So, like, an UBER with a complementary bag of Cheetos and a bottle of piss, then?

  • Hank

    Have a Meet and Greet in a Pub! That is the best, that he deserves!!!

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    In our country, Donnie only speaks to the masses that are carefully selected from his cult members, to insure cheers and adulation.

    In other countries, he won’t be able to control that. I expect massive protests, or our State Dept. will claim for ‘security purposes’ that there be no events involving the public.

    • clay

      Poland was cooperative. Others won’t be, particularly as time goes by.

      • Paul

        that is true, but the wife of the president snubbed him and didn’t shake his hand and went directly to Melania.

    • Ken M

      The crowds will be there. They call them protesters. I don’t think they have Craigslist in the UK.

    • David Walker

      That assumes there still will be a State Department.

  • bkmn

    Nice snub Britain!

    • boatboy_srq

      Follows a perk that should never have been entertained in the first place.

  • KarenAtFOH

    I’d pay to see the onlookers throw paper towels at him.

    • Hank

      USED paper towels….
      Oh, what the hell, make it TOILET PAPER…. brown!!!

    • Snarkaholic

      Wrapped around bricks?

  • Stogiebear

    “Sorry, Donnie. All our royal carriages will be in the shop at that time for a well-deserved retread. Harvesting rubber from the plants in Kew Gardens and then vulcanizing it isn’t a fly-by-night operation.”

        That would be something nice. And permanent. But I’d like to see lots of people with cleverly rude signs and placards along the route.

        • Steve Smith

          I understand that plastic bottles of rancid piss will be thrown to celebrate the occasion, and the Russian flag will fly from Buckingham Palace. Her Majesty will, of course, be indisposed.

          • JackFknTwist

            There is no way the security establishment will allow Trump/turd to go in procession down the Mall to Buckingham Palace. There aren’t enough soldiers in the UK to protect him.

            But I would dearly like to see him in Dublin giving an open air speech in College Green, like Obama and Clinton before him.
            It is an opportunity I would delight in not resisting .

          • Steve Teeter

            After Las Vegas I doubt the Secret Service will let him give an open air speech ever again. Not unless they totally control every building within a half mile.

        • Dazzer

          He’d be in a real cleft stick then.

          At the moment, both his Scottish golf courses are losing money hand over fist – so he doesn’t pay taxes on them. If the US tax payers actually paid full cost for the use of the golf courses, he might have to pay British taxes.

      • JAKvirginia

        Cool. Is it a rental? Well why shouldn’t the Brits make money off of him? Oh, right. The U.S. taxpayer will be footing the bill.

        We’ll build one that does. And 45 will get all full of himself because he’ll think it was built just for him…which, of course, it is, but not for egomaniacal reasons and, with luck, not just for him.

        • Librarykid

          preferably with a slow leak and floating turds in the water.

      I hope that water smells as bad as it looks if 45 were being brought in by barge.

    Skimmed some story about this earlier, and thought they’d kiboshed the visit altogether. Oh well, I’ll settle for this diss.

    And I’m hoping that early 2018 will find him so incoherent and universally mocked/despised – if not yet imprisoned – that he’ll barely dare to venture anywhere except from his bed to his gold toilet.

  • MikeBx2

    One can hope that by early 2018 Trump is looking somewhere for asylum, not a state visit.

    No civilized nation should grant any kind of state visit to this illegitimate puppet of Vladimir Putin. This sexual predator con artist parading around as President of the United States.

    She can’t host him. HE WOULD LIE AND SHE WOULD HAVE TO REBUKE HIM. “The Queen whispered in my ear that I was the greatest President ever to come to Buckingham Palace. She said I am doing an amazing job and she would give me many more, many more, State visits whenever I wanted one.”

    • paganguy

      Or he’ll try his patented “grab and shake” with her – which would be a YUGE break in protocol.

        and she would tell him to keep his pussy-grabbing hands to himself if he wanted to keep his head.

    The Buckingham Palace has no appetite to entertain two uncultured, undisciplined whores from the state side. Wouldn’t it be great to see the Clintons or the Obamas attend some functions host by the Buckingham Palace in the near future just to grate the fucking moron?

    • And have President Obama get to ride in the gold carriage again!

    • Dazzer

      President Obama and Michelle are regular guests of Prince Harry at Clarence House. Obviously, they’re not official visits because Barack Obama isn’t president any more, but the Obamas are still keen supporters of the Invictus Games and various other causes they have in common.

      At every opportunity, he Royals seems to be happy to signify how much they enjoy the Obamas’ company.
