Trump: I wasn’t late, she was late!


He just can’t tell the truth. No matter the issue, he has to lie. It has to be a pathological disorder.

“I landed and I’m on the ground and I’m waiting with the king’s and the queen’s guards,” Trump told his supporters. “I’m waiting. I was about 15 minutes early and I’m waiting with my wife and that’s fine. Hey, it’s the queen, right? We can wait. But I’m a little early,” Trump said at a rally Thursday, August 2, 2018.

Donald has spent most of his adult life before the Internet existed, and it still hasn’t dawned on him that almost anything can be checked, easily, and in the moment. Like who was kept waiting at his first meeting with the Queen of our closest ally. Really, Donald. There’s video of Her Majesty standing patiently waiting for your helicopter to arrive. The British didn’t miss it when she checked her watch. It was live on the BBC.

You’ve got to hand it to the British press, though. They were circumspect in their reporting of the incident, saying it wasn’t clear if Trump were late or not. It’s pretty clear from the Queen’s demeanor and actions that he was. Then, like a guest that won’t leave no matter how many times you yawn, he drug out his scheduled 15 minute meeting to more than an hour. Regardless of what you think of the monarchy, and how a President of the United States should behave with a royal, it’s always a faux pas to keep a 92 year old lady waiting. It screams “I’m a jerk!”

After keeping her waiting, he went with her to review the guard. It’s not polite to walk in front of a lady, Donald, especially when she’s the Queen. (Remember that incident at the White House, when he got out of the SUV and left poor Melania to get out on her side alone and walk around the truck, and try to catch up with him?) Look at that picture. She’s not amused, to paraphrase one of her predecessors. It’s a good thing the monarchy is only ceremonial these days, otherwise Trump might find his passport no longer valid in the United Kingdom!

Trump is a self-absorbed dolt, rude, and a liar.  And President of the United States of America. Aren’t you proud of him? #MAGA (make America groan again)
