Trump protests are 'embarrassing' and 'cringeworthy,' overseas Republican leader says

Source: CNBC

The thousands of people in the U.K. preparing to protest against President Donald Trump's visit have lost the plot, the chairman of Republicans Overseas told CNBC Thursday.

Anti-Trump protests are scheduled to take place Thursday and Friday while the U.S. president is on a working visit to the country -- one that includes meetings with the prime minister and Queen Elizabeth II. Protestors have promised a "carnival of resistance" that will include a 20-foot inflatable baby balloon resembling Trump flying over the London skies.

"Some of these protests are quite embarrassing and cringeworthy, specifically the balloon," Drew Liquerman, told CNBC's Steve Sedgwick, adding that he respected their right to protest.

Meanwhile, Digby Jones, a former director-general of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), also told CNBC Wednesday that he thought it was "disgusting" that the Trump baby balloon was being allowed.

I believe the Trump baby balloon is driving Mr. Liquerman to drink.

3. And herein lies the rub.

All these overseas protests are not Democrats, Liberals, Hillary-Lovers, sore losers of 2016, snowflakes. Or just contrarians to The Base. And so many of them! And often echoing the protests of the Homeland.

You have independent opinions that show multitudes abroad have issues with Trump. The Base has a choice to 1) Ignore them, 2) Dig in deeper and love Trump even more in ratio to the hate expressed, 3) Stop for a second and wonder about the motivations of European and British protesters.

7. embarrassing' and 'cringeworthy,'

The encapsulation of the past 19 months. The degree of e&c is proportional to that base cult which is equally so.

28. Why am I not surprised...

If that's the face of the Rethuglican party overseas, no wonder they're protesting in droves. They look like the guys who couldn't find a girlfriend in college and are still pissed about it. Well....if you weren't such a drooling, fucking idiot, maybe that wouldn't have been the case.

Meeting a few people and shaking hands and touring the estates...is "working" to dt. We'll remember that the next time he claims he's "working' at mara_Fk off or bedminster. If ONLY we could all work that hard. Imagine the outrage on fox were Obama met w this type of stuff. It'd be grounds for Congressional....i dont know what.

30. This "overseas Republican leader" just finished his junior year of college! Deep bench...

He's probably 20 or 21, and getting an undergraduate degree in International Relations in a joint program with William and Mary (U.S.) and St. Andrews (Scotland). It's called a BA in the US and an MA in Scotland, but still an undergraduate degree. I think he's try to confuse that issue (to his advantage) on his LinkedIn (etc.) page:

https://www.linkedin.com/in/drew-liquerman-75aab3112/
https://www.drewliquerman.com/

He mentions that it's an "Honours" degree, but that also means something different in Scotland. Students don't need to qualify for the "honours" path, and in fact, students are encouraged to take that path, since it provides additional depth and specialization. So, another Republican weasel trying to puff up his credentials (beyond the real achievement of securing a place in the well regarded William and Mary/St. Andrews IR undergraduate degree program).

Last summer, he interned on the US House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform under Trey Gowdy. (Gag.)

Again.

Nothing more embarrassing, cringeworthy, and disgusting than a whiny nazi.
