DONALD Trump protesters have been branded "an embarrassment to themselves" for attacking the President's trip. Liam Fox said today that the protests across Britain yesterday, which have continued today, didn't reflect the hospitality and kindness of the British people. Speaking just after the US President jetted up to Scotland last night to spend time at his resort in Turnberry, the International Trade Secretary implied the demos were not the way to welcome him to Britain. He told BBC News this morning: "The President has his own way of expressing himself and I don't think the protesters were an embarrassment to the Government. "I think they were an embarrassment to themselves." He went on: "I think that when you have the President of the United States, the leader of the free world being greeted with signs that say 'go home, we hate you', I don't think that reflects the good manners and hospitality of the British people." In his sensational interview with The Sun, Mr Trump said he felt … [Read more...] about Donald Trump protesters branded ‘an embarrassment to themselves’ ahead of more mass demonstrations

If scientists engineered the polar opposite of Donald Trump, a bizarro-world version of the rage-tweeting, fancy-living, drama-stirring mogul-turned-president, their lab might produce Gwen Graham. The former stay-at-home mom who hopes to become Florida’s first woman governor is almost everything Trump is not. She is a serial hugger, a frequent crier, a penny-pincher who buys her clothing at Target, an animal lover who posts pictures of her dogs and bunny on Facebook. The only organization she’s ever run was the PTA at her children’s school; the only time she’s spent in the public eye was as a one-term Democratic congresswoman. She’s a self-described nerd who hooks her granny-style glasses around her belt loop, an earnest consensus-builder who works so hard to find common ground that her ex-husband is her campaign treasurer. She listens. She empathizes. She exercises. She worries about her PolitiFact ratings. She’s so eager to learn that I watched her … [Read more...] about Do Democrats Want an Anti-Trump, or Their Own Trump?
