And once again the Liberal Mainstream Media gets it wrong and tries to portrait President Trump as a bumbling idiot.
On Friday President Donald Trump visited England, where he met with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II. Everything went very well, but as we know, the media has to attack Trump no matter what. So a media firestorm of epic proportions began.
You might be asking yourself what President Trump did this time to upset the fake news industry? Simple, this time it was because he arrived on time. Queen Elizabeth stood onstage in the summer heat for 15 minutes Friday before she was joined by President Donald Trump and then as they walked he blocked her because he chose the wrong side to stand on. The President was fresh from a press conference where he publicly took Prime Minister Theresa May to task over Brexit, as she herself stood right next to him.
“So, as you probably know, President Donald Trump visited England on Friday. He met with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II, the latter of which was a media firestorm of epic proportions.
All because he arrived on time.
“Queen Elizabeth stood onstage in the summer heat for 15 minutes Friday before she was joined by President Donald Trump, who was already fresh from a press conference where he publicly knocked Prime Minister Theresa May as she stood beside him,” Vice reported.
“The 92-year-old Elizabeth II, in coat, hat and gloves, stood under a white awning on the Windsor Castle grounds, waiting for Trump’s motorcade. He and first lady Melania Trump eventually stood beside the queen as some uniformed Brits played ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ before joining her inside for tea.”
The BBC reported what happened correctly, though. Trump was on time.
Earlier this week, the New York Daily News posted a guide to royal etiquette, which we always get reminded of whenever the president visits the U.K. and which always reminds me why our fine slice of the earth decided to file for divorce in the 18th century.
“First, the President shouldn’t consider arriving for his appointment with the Queen at the agreed upon time as ‘being on time.’ When meeting with royalty, guests are expected to be early, according to British etiquette experts Debrett’s.”
As for the American media, the fact that they don’t roll their eyes at this sort of nonsense is beyond me. They’re generally willing to give the president a pass when it suits them, at least when it comes to the intricacies of royal protocol. It didn’t suit them in this case. I wonder why.
