If #Putin wanted a US president to do his bidding, it would look exactly like Trump, who puts migrant children in cages but shakes in fear before a dictator who attacked America.…
The lead-in to #HelsinkiSummit was Trump being mired in pro-#Putin rhetoric, as Gerson explains here.

The list is unsettling long and also speaks to Trump's jejune status. As evidenced during #TrumpUKVisit, he's unaware of basic geography or geographical terms.
"The president remains in total denial about Russian intentions and actions."

The fact that no one in Trump's inner circle has been able to adjust his mindset to accept this reality when he put this in motion July 27, 2016 with his shout-out to #Putin is alarming at best.

So the key @WhiteHouse access reporter from the @nytimes doesn't see today's events as #BREAKING.

That is hard to fathom.

.@maggieNYT stood with @PressSec against @Acosta during the #TrumpUKVisit.

Haberman also supported SHS after the #WHCD and the #RedHen incident. In 2017, Haberman said the cast of #Hamilton was rude to @VP Pence and that it was unseemly, as he was VP.
.@maggieNYT was primary reporter on the Hillary Clinton email beat. MH was personally bylined on 53 stories related to Clinton's emails.

No newspaper or reporter had more detailed coverage--incl the front page after the #ComeyLetter which NYT's own Upshot said cost the election.

MSM: "We had no idea."
Me: "I wrote this June 30, 2016, so..."

Trump, Terror & Brexit…
When Trump was in the UK right after #Brexit, he spoke repeatedly about how the British had voted to "take their country back."
Trump reiterated that during his #TrumpUKVisit--he warned of the UK "Losing their culture."

We had a clear preview two years ago as I wrote here:
The claims no one knew Trump's intentions are false.

He trumpeted them everywhere he went. It was shocking, but fully evident. He talked about his intent to isolate America from the world--and demonized POC in every exchange.
#Brexit previewed how that racism impacted citizens.

Tonight @realDonaldTrump is sleeping at #TrumpTurnberry. We’ve been investigating the finances of his golf courses in Scotland and Ireland. They were purchased - and renovated at a cost of tens of millions of dollars– all in cash. #OnAssignment
.@Rob_Weissman, president of @PublicCitizen, a watchdog group which has often criticized the president, says “it’s reasonable to say President Trump is getting a publicity value 100 times over what the cost of him visiting is.”
Weissman and his team at @PublicCitizen crunched the numbers and estimate that @realDonaldTrump’s golf weekend in Scotland is going to cost the US taxpayer around $1.9 mil. #TrumpUKVisit

Now we’ve got a report about the big #TrumpProtest today in London to mark the #TrumpUKvisit. @realDonaldTrump stayed away, complaining the British public had made him feel “unwelcome.”
.@POTUS managed to insult his host @theresa_may within hours of arriving, after @TheSun published this interview He slammed her #Brexit strategy, said he would kill a trade deal, and praised her arch rival @BorisJohnson #awkward
At their joint press conference, 40 miles from London, @realDonaldTrump said he’d apologized to the PM – but also said that the recording of the interview would prove it was all #fakenews.

In central London to cover the #TrumpProtest this afternoon. This is the scene currently on Regent St. March will soon begin moving toward Trafalgar Sq. Police on scene tell me the turnout is much larger than they expected.
I met Kaya Mar, an artist who painted this piece for the #TrumpProtest. He is Spanish but has lived in London for 42 years. "I'm here to show contempt for Trump," he says. "Because of his policies & the way he is behaving. It will take many decades to clean up the wreckage."
Human rights activist Peter Tatchell is here, fresh from a trip to Russia where he was arrested. "The march is a msg of solidarity to the American people who oppose Trump," he says. "Trump's regime is a menace to democracy & human rights not just in the US but around the world."

Down at the #TrumpProtest in Parliament Square. Lots of the placards are handed out by the Socialist Workers' Party, Stop the War, and Friends of Al-Aqsa (FOA). There's plenty of sheer obscenity. And large pockets where the smell of cannabis is overwhelming. #TrumpUKVisit
Some kind of song put together by the activists down at the #TrumpProtest. #TrumpUKVisit
The Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, @DawnButlerBrent, spoke at the #TrumpProtest in Parliament Square and managed to get the word "fuck" into her speech. So that was progressive and brave. #TrumpUKVisit

200,000 protesters will also do their utmost to make Trump feel unwelcome.
Even Conservative Party members want no part of the #TrumpUKVisit:

"The divisive, dog-whistle rhetoric in his @TheSun interview is repulsive . If signing up to the #Trump world view is the price of a deal, it’s not worth paying"
Bravo to May for refusing to indulge #Trump's racism.

"The UK has a proud history of welcoming people who are fleeing persecution .. people who want to come to our country to contribute .. Immigration has been good for the UK" (^ @ddale8) #TrumpUKVisit

Some interesting news developments in the U.K. today. Firstly, foreign secretary @BorisJohnson has just resigned over Brexit - 2nd senior minister in 2 days. Will @theresa_may have a govt left by Friday, to welcome @realDonaldTrump? #TrumpUKVisit
Secondly, police in #Salisbury say they are currently dealing with a medical incident involving a man, close to where the #SkripalPoisoning took place. Unclear at the moment if it’s related.
Update on Salisbury: local police say the medical incident has been dealt with and is “not part of the ongoing major investigation”. Phew!

#Antifa art activists have permission to fly a 6 metre baby Trump blimp over London parliament square for #TrumpUKvisit.
"following a huge groundswell of public support for our plan, City Hall has rediscovered its sense of humour. Trump Baby will fly!”…
Have fun, UK. Use Trump as a warm up before throwing out your own pedo fascists, not as a distraction from your #1 job.
