    I'm not in London but I'm pretty sure this tweet about tremendous crowds of well-wishers and people who love the USA greeting Donald Trump today isn't strictly accurate.

    Fox News, meanwhile, is reporting on the protests, but claiming they include a lot of Trump supporters as well as opponents.

    Trump supporters are joining the protests?
    As it's unlikely there are many Trump supporters in the UK, that's very probably Fox talking bollocks, but perhaps his supporters have realised he's a cunt and joined the more sensible part of society that realises he's a twat.

    I don't know if there's anything that could make Fox etc. report on Trump's visit honestly - even if he got shot, they'd claim the gunman must have been a disgruntled Brexit supporter who was aiming for Theresa May.

    They had a 21 gun salute for him, but unfortunately they all missed

    I doubt he's even really in the country tbh. I think he's at home playing hungry hungry hippos and the whole 'state visit' is being done with photoshop.

    That would explain his incongruous series of tweets about board games being better when they were made in the good old US of A, as well as the abrupt withdrawal of US funding for hippo conservation efforts.

    He went on and on about adoring crowds of thousands in his joint press conference with May this afternoon.

    There were a few of the usual MAGA types today, some of whom ended up hiding in Wetherspoons.

    If you're getting upset about a couple of litres you're going to be inconsolable after reading this:

    Yes. I was up there from 11:30 and there were several people maybe a half dozen with US flags spread out throughout the crowds of determined anti Trump protesters.
    A bit of street debate going on too. The Moon on the Mall only seemed to be letting in ex edl faces.

    Pretty much the designated fash pub in the area now. The Red Lion is also one but it's tiny so no good for the cops to corral any group in.

    So does everyone mind. The Moon Under Water has been a traditional place for lefties to gather after rallies and talk bollocks for a while. It's a shame to see it turn out like this.
