Donald Trump was up at 1:30 am in London to hate-tweet Bette Midler

Donald Trump State Visit

Here are photos from Day 2 of the Trump state visit to the UK. The wheels have not come off, but that’s only because there were no wheels to begin with. Donald Trump spent Tuesday doing political stuff, like meeting with Theresa May at 10 Downing Street, and doing an unhinged press conference full of lies. There were thousands of people on the streets of London protesting too, which led to Trump lying and trying to convince himself that those protesters were actually supporters who love him. Bigly supporters. Here’s a clip, which includes Trump absolutely defaming Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London.

What’s funny is that even as Trump spoke, the Baby Trump Blimp had already launched (again). What’s unclear is whether this was a case of Donald Trump lying to himself and other people because the truth hurt his narcissistic pride too much, or whether his staff lied to him again because they know he’s a giant gassy baby.

In any case, the Idiot Abroad found himself jet-lagged and ragged late last night in England. He tossed and turned and wished he was back in his all-white palace with Midnight Big Macs on demand. So he decided to do what all jetlagged idiots do: hate-tweet Bette Midler.

People did the math and he tweeted this at like 1:30 am in London. That’s how much *checks notes* Bette Midler was bothering him in the middle of an international trip in which he dined with the Queen and took meetings at 10 Downing. BETTE. MIDLER.

Also, this is from early this morning too. The protests have gotten under his skin. Launch another Baby Trump blimp!!

    I like the line about how there were no wheels to begin with. I feel like they set this up as a very simple trip, with events that he would probably like, and nothing that would tax him too much. They even sent Ivanka to the Theresa May meeting with him. I know that good relations between the US and the UK are really important, but I’m not sure what this visit did to ensure that.

    I have been on twitter a lot more the past few days and when I saw Bette Midler start popping up in my timeline, I was like, “what, what did she do?” And then I was like…..oh. Trump.

    He is delusional and seeing the words “USA and Me” made me cringe. What a megalomaniac. It’s obvious they don’t trust him with BIG stuff because he has way too much time on his hands. And someone, anyone, needs to take his cell phone away and give him a beeper. Tell him that it will make him more cyber secure and will protect him with a forcefield. He won’t know, then give him his Diet Coke and burger.

    The protests clearly triggered him – you could hear them during his press conference with May. I was there for part of them in the morning and while there was not as many people as expected it was still very busy. The UK gov made a point of trying to keep him away from protests. In fact he commented to May that the protests were bigger the last time he was here – she awkwardly laughed along.

    There were a number of American’s there as well, mainly tourists and I overheard one guy saying ‘this is how democracy works’ to his friends. I get the sense they were keeping their personal feelings to themselves.

    Its the D-Day ceremony at the moment and so far he hasn’t embarrassed himself or the US – although he did a reading. On a purely superficial note: Trudeau has a sexy voice, esp when speaking French. I will fight Ivanka for a seat next to him.

    • Tina says:

      I was there for part of the protest as well. I listened to Corbyn’s speech which was not as bad as I had feared. Caroline Lucas’s speech was excellent. I saw the baby blimp, which is great, but I must admit I found the robot a bit embarrassing and tried to stay away from it.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        I left before Corbyn’s speech and didn’t get the sense that his presence was going to be well received – every time people mentioned his name, there was a few sputtering cheers/claps. Everyone else I heard got good receptions, esp Gwen Christie (must have been a load of GoT fans there).

        I heard part of his speech on the news but I couldn’t bring myself to listen any further as this is a man who has so far refused to support the people of Venezuela who’s democratic wishes are being violently repressed by a tyrant. For someone who claims to fight for the poor and oppressed of the world – its ‘crickets’ for the people of Venezuela.

      • Tina says:

        @DU, totally agreed and this is why I can’t support Corbyn. He and McDonnell don’t want democracy or particularly care about it, they want a Marxist system. The fact that it has not worked anywhere it has been tried and has resulted in violence and repression everywhere that it has been tried does not bother them.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        @Tina – Totally agree, what they want is Soviet style communism, both have praised it in the past. Corbyn and McDonnell will never say anything negative against Maduro as he’s like them – hard core trade unionists with extreme socialist ideals.

        I am done with politicians and people who continue to push ideologies that have been been proven to not only work but are over 100 years old. This is the 21st century not the 19th we need new political/social ideas that reflect the world we live in and the ever changing landscape we face. Sadly there are far too many old gits like Trump, Corbyn and McDonnell who cling to the past believing it has all the answers. News flash it doesn’t. We should learn from it, not repeat it.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        “been been proven to not only work but are over 100 years old” I meant to say ‘proven to not work..’. Thats what i get for replying in a hurry.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @Digitial Unicorn and Tina,

      Thank you for all your first-hand reporting of events. It is so wonderful to receive reports and inside views from fellow peers that one really trust.

      Keep the reports coming!

      Thanks again,

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Aww thank you. They are going to be in Normandy tomorrow so I wonder how he will behave.

        I don’t know how much or what is being reported on in the US, it will be interesting to see how the US media are reporting on the visit. He’s apparently back tracking on the NHS issue, esp as the backlash has been massive.

        He gave a reading of an excerpt of FDR’s D-Day prayer which was awful, as usual he struggled with it. Don’t know if you seen it. If you do watch it follow it up with Trudeau’s reading, it will be worth it (esp when he speaks French at the beginning – he sounded sexier than Macron) :)

  4. Megan says:

    There is literally no floor on how low he can go.

    • Esmom says:

      It’s true. And his lack of awareness about the optics of tweeting such petty sh*t is breathtaking. He’s just stunningly clueless and stupid. I remember thinking he would at least try to rise to the office and attempt some dignity at times but nope, I was such a chump to even hope.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        the pettiness and the “punching back” is one of the most embarrassing things, IMO.

        I just can’t imagine ANY OTHER president doing such a thing. I know people keep saying this but can you imagine how Fox “News” would be howling if O had put out tweets like 45 does? it’s just so embarrassing that our commander in chief is wasting his time “punching back” on twitter. he’s so thin-skinned that he cannot let ANY slight, no matter how small and/or insignificant, go. whether celeb, private citizen or media outlet, FFS JUST LET IT GO. you’re the freaking president, not everyone is going to like and praise you! he’s like George Costanza “yes, EVERYBODY has to like me!”

      • Esmom says:

        I agree. The POTUS is supposed to be diplomatic. How hard is that to understand? Trump is emotionally stunted, severely. There’s just no other explanation for how someone could constantly be acting this way.

        I’m reading a book of Obama’s letters to and from regular citizens and he engaged thoughtfully and politely with everyone who wrote to him, even if they disagreed with him. They’re amazing. I cannot for the life of me imagine Trump reading a letter, let alone responding to one. Obama read 10 a day and replied personally to many. They were his connection to what was happening in the U.S. Trump doesn’t care. At all.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Down in Hell, they’re cringing at how close the creak of the descending elevator is to them.

    • Franny says:

      Literally every single day he manages to sink to a new low. It is incredible to witness.

  5. Chef Grace says:

    Typical narcissistic burger gobbling thug posing as a world leader. With his entourage of family who could be the new cast of The Hills Have Eyes part WTF.
    God save the queen and world.

  6. Elisabeth says:

    I was just watching a documentary on FDR….it really is amazing the vast difference between Trump and other presidents.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I do not think Trump really wanted to be POTUS. He just wanted to play the POTUS on TV

      • Allie says:

        But now he wants to run for a second term…

      • Megan says:

        He is a garden variety dictator. The first taste of power did not humble him, it emboldened him.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Allie, No he does not want a second term as POTUS, he wants a second TV season on this world wide reality show he calls POTUS with all the world wide attention.

      • Lorelei says:

        He NEEDS a second (at least!) term now, and he knows it, because he’s going to be prosecuted by the SDNY in New York the day he steps out of office.

        He’s beyond desperate and we are not going to have a fair election. And either way, win or lose, most people agree he will not leave office peacefully. He’ll say it was “rigged” and his idiots will believe him. It’s going to be bad no matter what TBH.

  7. Whatabout says:

    This is why they scheduled all this on a Mon-Wed. A lot of people have to work who would love to have gone and protested him. Though people still showed up.

  8. Rachael Prest says:

    I went to a music festival the other day and happened to meet, purely accidentally, the guy who gave birth to the Trump baby blimp. As far as I’m concerned, I can now die happy.

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    So far, my favs during this visit are, ‘All and all you’re just a prick with no wall,’ and ‘Impeach him by the p@ssy.’

  10. Case says:

    The President of the United States refers to people as “washed up psycho” on Twitter. Can’t wait to wake up from this eternal nightmare.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      I know. I cringed when I read that. I am a Canadian raised by British parents. WTF happened to decorum and good manners even when you’re dealing with people who are icky??

  11. Megan says:

    This tweet proves Bette is a national treasure. “Trump said he was greeted by thousands in the UK, but they were actually thousands of protesters. How does he always hear the opposite of the truth? Donald, if you’re reading this you SHOULD NOT slam your dick in a door!”

    • lucy2 says:

      Brilliant!

    • Juls says:

      Ummm, good one and also very funny. However, logistically speaking, his giant gut would prevent his tiny penis from ever getting near enough to the doorframe for this to ever happen. Just sayin……..

  12. 10KTurtle says:

    I kinda believe him [shock!] when he says he “hasn’t seen” any protesters, simply because his staff must be working overtime to PREVENT EXACTLY THAT. Case in point: the USS John. S. McCain.

    • Original T.C. says:

      LOL, just like he never called Megan Markle nasty? The man watches a million hours of TV and was within hearing shot of protestors. He deliberately took Marine 1 to see the Queen instead of driving in a car like other Presidents so he doesn’t have to drive through the protestors. He lives in his own reality. A reality where he is a great president, had the biggest inauguration crowd and “sees” no protestors.

  13. Valerie says:

    He’s a dangerous megalomaniac. That’s all there is to it.

  14. Franny says:

    This is how he starts a day to commemorate D-Day. He is such a bottom feeder. It’s embarrassing.

  15. Giddy says:

    Trump just landed in Ireland, then on to the D-Day commemoration in Normandy. There is so much room for him to say something appalling. I hope he sticks to his prepared remarks and doesn’t decide to show off his smarts and knowledge of history.(none) The American dunce does Normandy. He would have to improve tons to be mediocre. How’s that for a campaign slogan? “Donald Trump, He’s Not Mediocre”

  16. JennyJenny says:

    Just another example of how the Big Gassy blowhard is “BE BEST” ~

  17. Tr says:

    You gotta love trump he is a clown

    @Digital Unicorn

    @Tina

    I’m born and raised in Venezuela, currently trapped in Venezuela, and I thank you for your comments. My politics are on the left side, but I’m in tears every single time leftists politicians refuse to acknowledge that Maduro, Cabello, and their ilk are not in it for the people but for the money. And no, do not support Lopez and Guaido and their ilk, either. They’re Venezuela’s right wing and they are all racist, homophobic, trust fund babies that hate the poor.

    The government shuts borders, the passports cost is too high (basically, your monthly salary, all of it, for four months; that is if, by the time you somehow manage to get the money, it isn’t now even more expensive, as it is constantly happening thanks to the hyperinflation and devaluation of our currency), minimun wage is $4, there’s no food and if there is it is way too expensive, there are no medicine, the police and the armed forces antagonize citizens, we (people between 16 and 30 yo) are being kidnapped and forced to serve in the military, there are no planes, the government is doing all it can to keep us trapped because they know we wanted to leave.

    I want to escape but I don’t know how. I want to leave for France (or any European country, really; I also like Canada) and apply for refugee status, but it’s just me, I’m dumb and I’m scared and I don’t know what to do. Xenophobia against Venezuelans is in a scary rise in Latin America with hate crimes, murder and all, and also, plenty of LA countries are no better than Venezuela. Corruption, poverty, feminicide, organized crime, sexual slavery, etc, are everywhere here.

    Anyway, sorry for the rant. Just had to get that off my chest.
