Our President is wrapping things up in England on the heels of a state visit. He was invited by the Queen when the Parliament could not find the manners to do so after we had the Prime Minister over for a nice visit.
Queen Elizabeth honored him with a formal reception at her palace, a trooping of the line, a lunch, tea, and a state dinner. Got to exchange ideas with Prince Charles. What a treat!
That is the royal treatment. Thank you, Queen Elizabeth.
The political establishment was not so appreciative or civil. They insulted our President, a kid from Queens (get it, the Queen, the kid from Queens), who returned the fire.
They insulted him by refusing to invite him to address Parliament. Small-minded insult, but an insult nonetheless. They had some staid, understated protests. Small, intimate affairs.
President Trump is not one to suffer an insult and leave it unanswered, as the American media and opposing politicians can attest.
I want to notify the British nation, except for the Queen, that as an American I find this insulting of my President to be churlish behavior.
We have a “special relationship” meaning we came to the rescue of England twice — World War I and World War II. In addition, we did the heavy lifting on NATO, the Cold War, and the War on Terror.
President Trump is over there for the 75th anniversary of the landings at Normandy that had a huge impact on the safety and security of the Home Island, no?
True, we had some differences including the American Revolution and the War of 1812 — nasty bit of business burning the White House. But, we got over it.
Still, insulting my President is churlish and inexcusable.
That’s all I have to say on the subject. Well, wait, one more thing — I want Melania, as our First Lady, to have a tiara like the royals.
Perhaps as a peace offering, the English Parliament should find a nice one and send it to her? Elegant stroke, no?
Something along the lines of the famous Cambridge Lover’s Knot pearl and diamond tiara is what I had in mind. Take a look at the picture above. Wouldn’t Melania look wonderful in this number?
But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. God save the Queen! Think seriously about the tiara idea. It could be huuuuuuuge.
