So there's going to be a big protest here to greet DT. What hypocrites these people are. Where were they when the Chinese Premiere was here? I don't 'spose any of them have heard about Tiananmen et al? Trump is here to commerorate D-Day. Something else these crets don't know or care about either. Rant over.

It may be inconsistent, but hardly hypocritical. There are protests against other state visits, though admittedly on nothing like the same scale.

Perhaps that's because America portrays itself as the leader of the "free" world, and as a long standing ally, we hope for rather better than the "leadership" Trump provides. By any measure, he's an extremely divisive figure, who deliberately whip up emotions on either side.

It's also rather silly to suggest that people who are protesting against him don't know or care about commemorating D-Day.

Is he over here to commiserate over Adolf getting beaten or the Allies winning? You know what these right wing types are like.

He thinks there were very fine people on both sides.

I've taken part in some but not all of the protests against those dodgy regimes with which the UK does business. Does that make me a bad person?

Corbyn went to the dinner for the Chinese but is boycotting Trump, ditto Khan.

Pure lefty hypocrisy.

Maybe he just felt for Dumpling Soup rather than eat with Pumpkin head.

The OP referred to the wider protests at his visit. I didn't realise we were going through "lefties" one by one, but fair comment on Corbyn.

Khan was singled out by Trump for criticism going as far back as the London terror attacks in 2017. What a friend of the UK the President has been. Little wonder Khan wants nothing to do with him.

Are you insinuating that the right are above doublespeak?
