Yes indeed. I wonder how many people in the UK would be bothered, though, to turn out, and stand in the street, just to see The Great Orange Wen pass by?

A few tourists, maybe, and the odd (very odd) red-neck from USAnia, but no-one else would care, would they?

Unless they were wearing one of the wonderful pussy-hats, now so freely available?

Trump stands before a podium in an empty hall. Queen says "hello" while fixing him with that trademark withering stare that says "I'm watching you."

Then watch the Trumpsters claim his crowd was the bigliest in UK history.

I get the impression Ms. May regrets the pictures of her holding hands with Mr. Trump in the White House Rose Garden.

If she wants to keep the PM job, I think it would be to her advantage to delay honoring that invitation for at least a couple of years to give us time to remove him from office. Four, at the most.

And, no, in no way would I be offended if Trump would be disinvited by your Parliment.

It seems as though The Visitation Of The Saviour Of The World to lil'ol England may still go ahead...

...unless security forces can persuade Him that His Orange Skin might be in jeopardy, perhaps.

Can't find the link at the moment, but I think it was on BBC News (and therefore True).

THIS IS BREAKING FAST

One hour ago, BBC reported Trump still was planning on visiting Britain.

Eight minutes ago the New York Times is saying it may be delayed--even canceled Report Here.

Three reasons given:

Trump does not want to see all the protests.

He got too tired the last time

He prefers having world leaders come to HIM--the almighty one.

So now that you have all those gold coaches and deluxe fancy-pants presidential suites gone empty, have you got room for-- oh, about 65 million of your former colonists who are having a change of heart?

We're going to be looking for large numbers of people to staff the NHS and pick strawberries. The only catch is you won't be able to afford to live closer than two hours' commute away from your work, or five hours' if you have to use Southern Rail.

Last September Mr. Trump released a glowing medical report and claimed that “he had better stamina than anyone else” and “bragged of his strength and endurance on the campaign trail” ( New York Times, 15 September 2016).

But then again, today’s New York Times article cited by Gramps49 mentioned that he “was visiting his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., over the weekend.” This is the jerk who criticized how much President Obama played golf ("I'm going to be working for you; I'm not going to have time to go play golf," Trump said during a 2016 event in Virginia”) -- and guess who’s spent more weekends on his various golf courses than any other President.

Inconsistency, thy name is Trump.

What on earth is the less-orange president up to? Is there some kind of trolling involved? Will the 14 July celebrations involve a revival of the guillotine?

Like I say, I think it's a game of chicken. Macron's previous coup was staging Putin's state visit at Versailles. He's good at this kind of stuff.

Also, attending the 14th of July celebrations would not involve Trump being anywhere near any protestors.

Not Trump-- ME! I'm learning "God save the Queen" in hopes she'll turn the page, wipe the slate clean, and let 65 million or so of her former colonists back in the empire. No hard feelings???

I think I am officially in a country run by Nicholas Machiavel.

I suspect “game of chicken” is right. Trump must know somewhere in the bottom of what passes for his heart that he is, ahem, not liked on this side of the Atlantic. Now he’s gone cold on visiting her Maj because people might be mean to him, Manu is needling him with another offer he’ll be too scared to take up.

Meh. Not sure about that. Much as I’m enjoying Macron’s game-playing with Trump (remember the weaponised handshake), I think we have to accept that the Leader of the Free World these days is Angela Merkel. Which gives us the consolation of knowing that even though Hillary didn’t get elected, a woman still ended up with the job.

The headline says it all: Trump Confirms London Trip. He also promises to sign a 'very powerful trade deal.' Lock up your silver, okay? And make sure he pays in advance for everything. Do not agree to bill him later!

I know where the power in that Very powerful trade deal will be. The UK will be swallowed up like a forty year old virgin.

It looks very much as if our Trade Secretary is committed in advance to some sort of deal with the Americans. Do I detect echoes of 'I will be with you whatever'?

Truly, the patients are running the mental hospital.

I wonder if Trump will actually go or if he'll send Ivanka in his place.

And I hope he remembers to make hotel reservations this time. (Actually I hope he forgets...)

I do realize that someone on his staff should have made those arrangements for him, but the fact that this wasn't done shows what an incompetent staff he has appointed.

Don't let the sons anywhere near animals, and consider investing in chastity belts for female staff. I am sure he does not know the meaning of the term 'vagina dentata' and it would be a service to the nation if you educated him.
