You cannot make this stuff up:

MSNBC’s Wallace Slams Trump’s Response To Brexit: “I'm Gobsmacked” He Discussed His Real Estate Instead Of The Vote

Nicolle Wallace: “This Is The Riddle That Is Donald Trump. Maybe Today He's Not Running For President, He's Selling Suites

AND:

CHRIS CUOMO (HOST): Break into Donald Trump's statement right now which is not something we often do but it's very remarkable at this point because of what he hasn't mentioned yet. Donald Trump has been up at the podium for about five minutes, has not mentioned Brexit, is only talking about his golf course and his other business ventures and how it came to be. Let's discuss why he would make this choice and what the implications are.

TRUMP: Blah, blah, blah, my golf course is fabulous, blah, blah, I'm fabulous, it's beautiful, it's grand it's great, blah, blah, blah...

JOHN AVALON: This is insane. The presumptive Republican nominee has the world watching on a historic day and he is doing a five minute advertorial for his golf course in great detail, talking about the beauty of the suites, how great the pars are on certain holes, not talking about Brexit. This is a summation in some ways of his campaign. He is in the right place at the right time for his message, and he blows it because at the end of the day, it's all about him. He seems to be trying to profit off a presidential run and not taking it seriously. This is trump steaks all over again after winning the primaries. It's completely insane.

ALISYN CAMEROTA (HOST): David, is that how you see it?

DAVID GREGORY: I think John understates the importance of adding suites to the lighthouse. But I totally -- I mean, look, we spent all this time analyzing the potential significance of the parallels with his own campaign. We spent all of this time highlighting parallels of the campaign and way out ahead of where Donald Trump's campaign is. I'm shocked that, even given his statements, that he didn't come out and immediately seize on the importance of this. Maybe he wanted to inject a note of caution by not getting involved. But no, this just seems like political malpractice. I'm as bemused as everyone else looking at this thinking how strange this is

The British are frantically Googling what the E.U. is, hours after voting to leave it

Britons are frantically googling the phrase ‘What is the EU’ hours after voting for the UK to leave the European Union, according to Google Trends.

The tech giant claims that ‘What is the EU’ is the second top searched for question since the EU referendum results came out.

In a tweet, the company wrote: “What is the EU?” is the second top UK question on the EU since the #EURefResults were officially announced

OMG: UK Independence Party Leader Admits His Bold Brexit Claim Was a "Mistake"


Nigel Farage backs away from the Leave campaign's signature pledge to spend £350 million of European Union money on the National Health Service.



As Britain awoke on Friday to the news that it had voted in favor of withdrawing from the European Union, voters were introduced to their new reality with a stunning admission from Nigel Farage, the pro-Brexit advocate who leads the U.K. Independence Party. Farage said that the Vote Leave campaign's signature pledge—that leaving the European Union would allow for £350 million to be spent on the U.K.'s National Health Service—was a "mistake."

"No I can't, and I would have never made that claim," Farage said. "It was one of the mistakes I think the 'leave' campaign made"

...........

When pressed by Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid, who said that 17 million people had voted to leave the EU partly on that bold promise, Farage repeatedly stalled, as he attempted to disavow the campaign pledge.

$TRUMP$: Pound going down helps business at my golf course





Donald Trump says if the British pound tumbles in the wake of Britain's vote to leave the European Union, it could benefit him financially.

"Look, if the pound goes down, they're going to do more business. When the pound goes down, more people are coming to Turnberry," Trump said Friday, speaking at a press conference celebrating the reopening of his golf resort in Scotland.

Scotland: Trump interrupted by comedian with swastika golf balls





..........

While he was speaking at the ninth hole of his golf course, the billionaire was interrupted by British comedian/prankster Lee Nelson, who held up several swastika-emblazoned golf balls and tried to hand them out to the crowd.

Nelson, real name Simon Brodkin, hit the headlines last year when he showered former Fifa president Sepp Blatter with fake money.

Trump shouted 'Get him out of here!' before security personnel led him away, while Nelson grinned to camera, saying the balls were 'available in the clubhouse as part of a new Trump Turnberry range'.

Nelson, who was wearing a Trump Turnberry sweater, added: 'Sorry Mr Trump. I forgot to hand them out!'
