UPDATE: President Trump says the British interview in the Sun tabloid which he criticized Prime Minister May was “fake news” because, while he did say what they printed, they also left out a lot of other things he said in praise of her. So, not so much “fake news” as “half news.”
I just returned from Great Britain, but President Trump is staying there through the weekend, long enough to give an interview about his disappointment in Prime Minister Theresa May’s efforts at accomplishing Brexit. Britain’s exit from the European Union was approved by voters, but it’s taking longer for Britain to leave the EU than it takes for an unemployed brother-in-law to move out of your guest room.
Like many things Trump says, the interview didn’t reveal anything that anyone paying attention didn’t already know, but it’s causing seismic tremors among European and diplomatic elites, who are as unaccustomed to plain-spoken truths as they are to WalMart wine.
Here’s a write-up about the latest skunk Trump released in a garden party just by saying what he really thinks. That must be why most politicians never do that.
