Politics Talk. And there goes the special relationship...UK Ambassador makes disparaging remarks about Trump

via BBC
The Trump administration has been labelled "inept", insecure and incompetent in leaked emails from the UK ambassador to Washington.

Sir Kim Darroch said that the White House was "uniquely dysfunctional" and "divided" under Donald Trump.

But he also warned that the US president should not be written off.

The Foreign Office said the leak of the memos to the Mail on Sunday was "mischievous" but did not deny their accuracy.

The White House has not yet responded to the revelation of the contents of the memos, but it could test the so-called "special relationship" between the US and UK.

In the messages, Sir Kim said: "We don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction-riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept."

He questioned whether this White House "will ever look competent".
Story here. 

A few things.

1.  Talk about the pot calling the kettle!  The Brit govt has looked anything but stable...functional...efficient...with regard to its dealings with Brexit.

2.  If the Brit govt does not recall their own ambassador then we know that the views expressed are held by their leadership.

3.  Hate the policies.  Hate the direction that they're leading the country but don't hate the man.  It was vile and despicable with the way that Obama was treated (and still is to a certain extent) and the same applies with Trump.

4.  Who can the Brits label as their friends now?  They're in essence pissing on the EU, they obviously have no love for the US....who do they count as friends?  Who will stand by their side?  With statements like this it seems like only Democrats in the US, our media and the elite will stand with them.  By chance or by calculation they seem to want to split US support.

This is just a terrible visual for them.  It's a shame that it came out but I'm glad it did.

Truth is cleansing.  It's not always pretty but its cleansing.  We now know the truth of how the Brits feel about us.

There goes the special relationship.  Its been dying for awhile and this will probably be the knife into the heart of it to end the misery.
