Hello and hi. As you may or may not know, we here in the UK have our own brand of crazy. It is commonly known or referred to as: ‘Nigel Farage.’ Nigel Farage has not been in the news much lately *does a dance while riding a unicorn* but that has meant that we here in the UK have been subjected to the US brand or version of crazy, to fill the gaping hole-left by a lack of Farage related news. We are getting plenty news about Donald Trump. So, this happened…
Donald Trump has given his first UK interview. Slowclap. Trump gave his first UK interview with former Justice Secretary Michael Gove for the Times. Gove is now working for the Times. Good grief. Well, at least I know that if I did a total Judas move, then there would still be work available for me…and work with a nice pension pot too. Oh and plenty of people would be reading the words which came from my Judas pen. Yes, I am talking about Michael Gove. Despite his bad behaviour pre and post-Brexit, Gove has landed himself a plum job at the Times. Good grief. But, I digress.
In Gove’s interview with Trump he said that the UK is “doing great” following its vote to leave the EU. What the what? Are we really doing great? The pound has fallen, EU citizens living in the UK are not sure if they can continue to work and live here in the UK and people are behaving badly saying things like they don’t want to sit next to Muslims and other foolishness. So, Trump, if you ARE reading this (and I am assuming that you can actually read) things are not so great here in the UK post the referendum on Brexit. No. No, they are not . Trump also followed up with saying that he thought the UK was “so smart in getting out.” My goodness. I may need a lie down followed by a cup of tea after reading those sage words, as reported by the BBC. Honestly.
In addition, Trump also promised a quick trade deal between the UK and the US after he takes office on Friday. Goodness. Well I do know for sure, any trade deals between the UK and US will first have to be approved by Vladimir Putin-oh, and I am not even joking. No. No, I am not.
Further, in the interview, Trump also criticised “obsolete” Nato and German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s immigration policies. Yikes. Who criticises Nato? What an idiot. Erm…who criticises Angel Merkel? What a massive idiot. Trump has just criticised probably the most influential leader in Europe. Wow. He sure does have cojones.
Michael Gove, was a pretty prominent ‘Leave’ campaigner during the referendum and is related, by his actions to Judas. Yes. Yes, he is. That being sad, during the interview with Trump, Gove asked whether the UK was “at the front of the queue” for a trade deal with the US following the Brexit vote. Trump replied:” I think you’re doing great, I think it’s going great.” Gove’s question was a reference to President Barack Obama’s comments last April when he indicated that the UK would be “at the back of the queue” if it left the EU. Trump also added, “countries want their own identity and the UK wanted its own identity, but I do think if they hadn’t been forced to take in all of the refugees than you wouldn’t have a Brexit.” Forced? What on earth is he even talking about? Furthermore, the UK does have its own identity-look, I wont even try to explain Brexit to Trump (not even if he asked nicely…I wouldn’t do it for all the roubles in Russia).
Pictured below are Trump and Gove at the interview.
Trump and Merkel
The president-elect also said that he though Mrs Merkel was the “by far the most European leader” well, at least he got THAT right. But that still did not deter him from spouting utter nonsense when talking further about Merkel. Trump described Merkel’s immigration policy as a ‘big mistake’ and added that “people make mistakes.” He also added, ” I think she made one very catastrophic mistake and that was taking all of these illegals, you know taking all of the people from wherever they came from. And nobody even knows where they came from.” What. is. he. talking. about? First of all, Germany took in ‘these illegals’ because it was the right and proper thing to do. And it wasn’t just Germany, other countries took in refugees/migrants/people too. Of course, Germany took in the largest number and they should be commended for that. Instead, Trump is criticising Germany. Am not sure who even criticises Germany…who does that? Oh wait, Trump does. One day soon, Trump will have to meet with Angela Merkel-let’s hope he is gracious and kind and proceeds to eat crow, when he does. Oh wait, there goes a unicorn.
Trump said more in his interview with Gove, but at this point, I think I have had enough of his nonsense for one day. Yes, yes I have. That is all.
