WATCH LIVE: UK Parliament debates whether to invite President Trump for official visit

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/02/watch-live-uk-parliament-debates-whether-to-invite-president-trump-for-official-visit/

The United Kingdom’s Parliament is debating right now on whether to formally invite President Donald Trump to the country for an official state visit.

On one side, anti-Trump MPs argue that Trump’s past statements slamming the free press, his own intelligence agencies, and the NATO alliance — not to mention his past racist and misogynistic remarks — mean that the U.K. should not invite him for an official visit.

Pro-Trump MPs, meanwhile, have argued that the U.S.-U.K. alliance is too important to allow for personal distaste of Trump to jeopardize it.

Watch a live stream of the debate below.

Pence says that when the media plays "fast and loose" with facts, there WILL be consequences

Pence: Trump supports free press but will call out false reports. USA! #MAGA!



U.S. President Donald Trump believes in a free and independent press but he will not hesitate to point out flawed reporting, the U.S Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday.

"Rest assured the president and I both strongly support a free and independent press but you can anticipate that the president and all of us will continue to call out the media when they play fast and loose with the facts," Pence told a news conference at the NATO headquarters in Brussels.

"When the media gets it wrong, President Trump will take his case straight to the American people to set the record straight," he added.

Kayleigh McEnany: Trump fans know what he meant about Sweden because they watch Fox News, too

“There is a case to be made that there is some sort of link between the refugee entry into Sweden and the rise in crime,” argued the CNN contributor, who worked as a Trump surrogate during the campaign. “Look, some people might dispute that and say it’s linked to changes in Swedish laws, but there has been an increase in violence.”

She then cited terrorist attacks in other countries, including Germany, that have been linked to refugees.

“He has a case to be made, and I understand the way he structured his sentence might have not made it clear to some — but it was clear to others,” McEnany said. “I was at the rally, actually, and the person next to me said, ‘Oh, he’s talking about something that happened last night on Fox News. So, to some people it was clear, to others, it was not.”

McEnany then referred to claims by filmmaker Ami Horowitz, whose work was featured in the Fox News report the president apparently cited, to claim that refugees were responsible for rapes and other violent crime in Sweden.

Donald Trump



Abusive Stepfather Of The Constitution

Forty-fifth president best known for being so self-obsessed and insecure that he is undoubtedly reading this entry right now in order to find out what we have written about him. Trump, who at this exact moment is most certainly scanning these very words to satisfy a deep-seated, omnipresent, and uncontrollable urge to know what everyone thinks of him at all times, took office after a largely unanticipated Electoral College victory over Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. Having spent decades as a businessman, real estate mogul, and television personality before his presidency, Trump suffers from such a severe inferiority complex that he immediately pored through this feature for his name and is, without a doubt, currently perusing this passage with the desperate hope that we offer him some form of praise and validation. Considered to be one of the most unorthodox leaders in modern American history, Trump is the first U.S. president to have no prior political or military experience and is assuredly livid at present as he reads over the closing words of this entry that characterize him as a fragile, incompetent individual who, despite continual public displays in which he attempts to project the opposite air, is widely regarded as a mere pretender who has rarely if ever succeeded on his own merits.

Trump hires guy to find nominees, rejects them all because they were "critical" of him in the past



Early on, the Trump organization reached out to longtime Republican operative Elliott Abrams for help selecting nominees for cabinet posts and other appointments. Abrams reportedly brought long lists of nominees only to have the president and his staff veto them because they had said something critical of Trump in the past.

“Mr. Abrams’s experience has become a case study in the challenges Mr. Trump still faces in filling top positions a month into his presidency. Mr. Trump remains fixated on the campaign as he applies a loyalty test to some prospective officials. For their part, many Republicans reacted to what happened to Mr. Abrams with dismay, leaving them increasingly leery about joining an administration that cannot get past the past,” said the Times.

“Many tough things were said about him and by him” during the campaign, Mr. Abrams said in an interview with the Times. “I would have hoped he would have turned toward just hiring the most effective people to help him govern rather than looking back to what we said in that race.”

PALM BEACH, FL—Saying that the noisy group was really getting on his nerves, Mar-a-Lago country club member Walter Forsyth reportedly complained to the management Thursday about the obnoxious U.S. cabinet meeting seated at the next table. “I just wanted a nice, quiet dinner, but this rowdy table of high-ranking government officials keeps rudely shouting about classified policy initiatives,” said Forsyth, adding that more than a dozen raucous aides and advisors had pulled up chairs to a table that was clearly only meant to seat six. “I didn’t pay all this money in membership fees to have these insufferable officials barge in and take over the entire dining room with their piles of sensitive documents spread out everywhere like no one else is even here. I’m just trying to enjoy the prime rib, and they’re on their phones loudly talking to some foreign leader. This is the same disrespectful group, of course, that was yelling about North Korea in the spa.” At press time, a waiter was politely asking the party to take their conversation about the Iran nuclear deal into the bar area or the lobby.

British Parliament will do the math: Documented misogyny + vulgarity equals no official State Visit?



British Parliament will debate on Monday whether the government should rescind its invitation to President Donald Trump for an official state visit.

A petition to Parliament calling for the invite to be withdrawn has amassed more than 1.8 million signatures as of Sunday, far surpassing the 100,000 signatures needed to prompt a debate in Parliament.

“He should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen,” the petition reads, citing Trump’s “well documented misogyny and vulgarity.”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan agrees with the petition and said Sunday Trump should be denied due to his “ban on people from seven Muslim-majorities countries” and his decision to block refugees from entering the United States, the Associated Press reports.
