Tories Queue Up to Blast Trump

May on Trump:

“I see no equivalence between those who propound fascist views and those who oppose them. I think it is important for all those in positions of responsibility to condemn far right views wherever we hear them.”

Other Tory MPs and ministers have been somewhat more direct:

Can’t wait for the state visit…

Trump Condemns “Evil” Racists, KKK and Nazi “Thugs”

Now Abi Slurs Cancer-Stricken John McCain

Shock hackette Abi Wilkinson has got the attention-seeking bug. Fresh from calling for a 100% inheritance tax earlier this week, she has now written a really quite unpleasant piece for the New Statesman about John McCain, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. Headlined “This is no time for civility towards Republicans – even John McCain”, Abi writes:

“Increasingly, I’m coming round to the idea that incivility isn’t merely justifiable, but actively necessary… It’s unpleasant to wish that John McCain was dead—but is it illegitimate to note that, had he been unable to vote, legislation that will kill tens of thousands of others might have been blocked?”

Charming, and also doubly stupid. McCain last night torpedoed the Obamacare repeal bill.

She trolls on, quoting Engels and John McDonnell on “social murder”, comparing McCain and other Republican politicians to killers:

“In normal murder cases, few people would even begin to argue that killers deserve to be treated with respect. Most us would avoid lecturing victims’ on politeness and calm, rational debate, and would recognise any anger and hate they feel towards the perpetrator as legitimate emotion.”

This article is obviously complete drivel. It is designed to shock, to seek attention, to outrage, to get clicks. Abi is the left-wing equivalent of Raheem, Milo or Katie Hopkins, she doesn’t really have anything clever or interesting to say and probably doesn’t believe her own BS, but knows there’s a short-lived career in writing nasty, clickbait comment pieces. Sad…

Maitlis v The Mooch

Emily Maitlis interviews the new White House comms chief Anthony Scaramucci, who says he has no idea about chlorine chicken but there will “100%” be a UK-US trade deal. Worth a watch…

Mensch Claims Steve Bannon to Be Executed For Espionage

With Heat Street now at a dead end, Louise Mensch has a new online enterprise called Patribotics, strapline “Exposing Vladimir Putin’s War on America”. Her latest story headlines that Fox News Under FBI Counterintelligence Investigation:

Specifically, Sean Hannity is on signals intelligence co-ordinating his pro-Trump message with organs of the Russian state, such as RT, Sputnik, Wikileaks and Julian Assange

Her sources also tell her that Trump’s White House chief strategist is facing the death penalty for espionage. Guido admittedly hasn’t been following the whole Trump/Russians thing that closely. So this is shocking news given he hasn’t even been charged. The site has a lot of other conspiracy theories which Guido has not had the will time to read. Guido has his own conspiracy theory – her whole site is actually a Russian false flag operation to discredit all the Trump / Russia conspiracy theories as crazy…

UPDATE: Co-conspirators point out that Louise reckons President Trump too faces the executioner. Huge if true…

Trump Meets Putin

Very enthusiastic smile and handshake from Theresa May when she met Putin at the G20 today. Trump’s handshake extended to a manly grab of the arm and a friendly pat on the back. All smiles…

Trump Trolls Khan

Readers of this site will know that Guido can hardly be described as a defender of Sadiq Khan. But Trump has gone off the reservation – deliberately misrepresenting Khan’s words and then doubling down on his baseless attack on the mayor of the capital city of his closest ally. Imagine if the British PM had behaved in this way towards the New York mayor after 9/11. That sound you can hear is the collective facepalm from the PM’s aides…

Trump Names and Shames Nato Under-Payers

Awkward faces all round as Trump named and shamed Nato under-payers this afternoon…

Trump in Mar-a-Lago Situation Room

Alt-Reality Alt-Right Off the Trump Train

The alt-reality alt-right are off the Trump train – you could say they’ve been triggered. It is the Donald who changed his mind:

Number 10, the LibDems and Labour moderates support Trump, Corbynistas and UKIP are condemning him…

Trump Bombs Assad Airbase

The US has launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at the Syrian air base used during this week’s gas attack. President Trump said in a statement:

“It is in the vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.” 

Number 10 said:

“The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the airbase was “almost completely destroyed”. At least four Syrian soldiers were killed in the strike. At last the west stands up to Assad…

The White House have released the new official portrait of the First Lady. Second airbrushing story of the day…

Trump to CPAC

Bannon and Priebus Live at CPAC

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon outlining his worldview of “economic nationalism” at CPAC. With some choice words for the “corporatist globalist media“. He reiterates Trump will not moderate his policies and tells his audience to hold him accountable on his election pledges. “Every day is going to be a fight…”

Both Trump Petitions to Be Debated Monday

The Petitions Committee has decided to merge the pro and anti-Trump state visit petitions and hold a single Westminster Hall debate on Monday:

To all Members

The Petitions Committee has scheduled the following debate in Westminster Hall on two petitions relating to a state visit by President Donald Trump…

Monday 20 February
Motion: “That this House has considered e-petitions 171928 and 178844 relating to a state visit by President Donald Trump.”

Petition 171928 ‘Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom.’ 

Petition 178844 ‘Donald Trump should make a State Visit to the United Kingdom.’

Bit of a cop out…

Trump / May Press Conference in Full

Just four questions, no major disasters, very warm words from the President on Brexit. May will be happy with that…

Trump v Laura K

As the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg questions President Trump on torture and Russia, he looks to Theresa May and jokes:

“That’s your choice of question? There goes that relationship.”

Yikes!

May Meets Trump

The President meets the Prime Minister on the steps of the White House:

Trump tells May “it’s a great honour to have Winston Churchill back”:

Theresa May Speech to Republican Retreat

“Majority Leader McConnell, Mr Speaker, Distinguished Members of the Senate and Representatives of the House.

I would like to thank Congress and the Congressional Institute for the invitation to be here today. The opportunity to visit the United States is always special. And to be invited to be the first serving Head of Government to address this important conference is an honour indeed.

I defy any person to travel to this great country at any time and not to be inspired by its promise and its example.

For more than two centuries, the very idea of America – drawn from history and given written form in a small hall not far from here – has lit up the world.

That idea – that all are created equal and that all are born free – has never been surpassed in the long history of political thought.

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
