Indeed, though I'm not sure how The Arbiter Of Sh**holes cannot still be received by Her Majesty, however distasteful such a meeting might be to her.

Sadly, he is still Head of State of a country with which we have (or should I say had) a Special Relationship, so I guess an official state visit could still take place .

Mind you, President Cowardy-Cowardy Custard would probably cry off, in case some Nasty Brown People showed up, and insulted him....

Cry off is what he has done, apparently. Never been more jealous of y'all

Yes, but AIUI he's simply refusing to come across the pond to open the new Embassy - the proposed Official State Visit is a special treat for us (and HM) to look forward to later.

Not.

Anyway, perhaps he'll soon disappear up his own sh**hole, and spare us all some grief. Wasn't he due for a medical examination round about now?

She may be advised by her government of the UK to receive him , but her governments of a long list of countries not to, and further advised that she should tell him of the limited basis of his reception. She would no doubt do as she has for the last 66 years and follow the advice of her government.

Brief mention on the TV evening news. Apparently he's in "excellent health" despite a steady diet of tacos, McD's, diet Coke and chocolate cake.

Must be a Republican physician.

No doubt H.M. will do her duty as always, trying not to hold her nose, but the atmosphere at the State Banquet will probably be distinctly frosty.

Oh yes - made up by the Chinese, or the Haitians, or the Mexicans, or every Muslim in the world, especially Obama.....

Please God, let the Father of Sh**holes never set foot on our Fair Land. Having BoJo The Clown and his friends here is bad enough.

As this is about a state visit (or not) to the UK, the opinions of HM's other governments are of course not a factor.

I think the government must be keenly aware that being expected to take part in a ceremonial carriage drive through London from Winfield House to Buckingham Palace through streets lined with demonstrators is not something any reasonable person would wish to impose on our 91 year-old monarch and her 96 year-old consort.

As for Mr Trump himself: it has been remarked on that at no stage of his life has DJT made any significant and lasting friendships: sure, there are people who have been employees for a long time but same-level friendship seems to have been beyond him all his life. That would go so way towards explaining his crassness, insensitivity, touchiness, inability to cope with criticism and narcissism.

Put another way, what all the tweets and foul-mouthed ranting are really saying is "Why doesn't anybody like me?". Sad in a small child, profoundly disturbing in a man in his 70s who happens to be POTUS.

Thing about his latest physical is he refused to submit to a mental health eval or neurological exam. He refused to submit to a cognitive function test which people over 65 usually have on an annual basis.

[Confused] I'll be 73 in two weeks and have never had a cognitive function test -- didn't even know they exist.

Fortunately I'm cognitive and still functioning -- at least for now. [Yipee]

I recently had my first post-Medicare annual physical. While she was doing the physical exams and tests, she asked me a few memory-related questions and had me perform some really, really simple tasks (e.g., folding a sheet of paper in half). She said I had a score of 100%!

Several friends have mentioned to me that this is part of the routine for a Medicare physical.

The tests are really very simple as pointed out above. The routine my Dr gives me is to ask me to remember some words. We then discuss something else and then he asks me what were the words he asked me to remember.

Typical cognitive tests here.

Yes, I've had similar tests - mostly when I was in hospital in 2016, following brain surgery, and had a series of epileptic seizures.

IIRC, this was just about the time when the election of Sadiq Khan as Mayor of London was in the news, so the fact that I answered correctly the question 'Who is the Mayor of London?' reassured everyone that I was OK....

I wonder what The Lord Of Lies' answer would be if they asked him who the POTUS was...?
