Sadiq Khan, who’s been Mayor for three years, launched a series of savage attacks on President Trump in the past 48 hours, both in print and on television, branding him a ‘fascist’, a ‘growing global threat’, and demanding Britain should not be ‘rolling out the red carpet’ for him because it was ‘un-British’, adding that he was ‘the antithesis of our values in London and as a country’ and his ‘divisive behavior flies in the face of the ideals America was founded upon – equality, liberty and religious freedom.’
Mayor Khan also authorized, again, the flying of a giant orange Trump baby blimp over the Houses of Parliament during the visit, specifically designed to mock and humiliate the President.
Little wonder than that when President Trump arrived in the U.K. this morning and read all this, he responded in kind.
‘Sadiq Khan,’ he tweeted, ‘who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me. Khan reminds me very much of our dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job, only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!’
Predictably, this prompted an immediate roar of faux outrage from all those who had failed to be remotely outraged by Mayor Khan’s initial attacks.
Khan himself, without any apparent self-awareness, accused Trump of ‘childish insults’.
Yes, the man who approved a giant baby blimp of the U.S. President to fly over Parliament is accusing his target of being childish!
