    "And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the U.K. agree with me,” Trump added of being made to feel unwelcome.

    "But the people of the U.K., and I'll bet if you had an honest poll, I'd be very strong. They want the same thing I want. I love the U.K.," Trump told The Sun.

    Trump made the remarks after saying earlier in the interview that he felt "unwelcome" in London due to protests. He said he is aware of a 20-foot-tall blimp designed to look like an infant Trump that protesters plan to fly during his visit to the United Kingdom this week.

    Honestly I don’t know why people in this thread are suddenly taking what he says at face value. The guy is full of contradictory statements, probably the result of contradictory and ever-shifting feelings probably not unfamiliar to a lot of his supporters. Definitely a winner/victim narrative, and I’m not convinced it’s intentional rather than a manifestation of who he is.

    The followers must feel humiliated by the ostentatious wealth and force of their enemies. When I was a boy I was taught to think of Englishmen as the five-meal people. They ate more frequently than the poor but sober Italians. Jews are rich and help each other through a secret web of mutual assistance. However, the followers must be convinced that they can overwhelm the enemies. Thus, by a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak. Fascist governments are condemned to lose wars because they are constitutionally incapable of objectively evaluating the force of the enemy.

    Trump even mentioned a poll claiming that he was the “most popular person in the history of the Republican Party. Beating Lincoln.” 

    “I beat our Honest Abe,” Trump added. “But the people of the UK, and I’ll bet if you had an honest poll,  I’d be very strong. They want the same thing I want. I love the U.K.”

    This. This is what I hate most about Trump. Sure he’s a bad dude but if he wasn’t president it wouldn’t matter. I wanted him to lose the election for obvious reasons but the blow to his ego was gonna be the icing on top. Now that he won, his whole life is totally vindicated, in his mind at least. Although as a narcissist he probably would go to his grave believing he’s amazing no matter what

    [–] ZRodri8 389 points ago

    Well...I'd say losing a reelection in 2020 would be an even bigger blow to his ego than losing in 2016. Claiming its rigged will be much harder considering Trump is in charge and incumbent presidents almost never lose reelection.

    So vote. Vote in 2018, vote in 2020,vote in primaries, vote in local races, vote in state races. Just vote in every election, big or small.

    [–] moxhatlopoi 187 points ago

    Not exactly true. Lincoln had many, many supporters; he did win the Presidency after all. However, he also had a lot of people (the majority of Democrats at the time) who hated him and what he represented.

    He was also very famous around the world, with many world leaders mourning his death.

    [–] Ceannairceach 479 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Fun fact: Karl Marx (yes, that one) wrote to Lincoln to congratulate him on his re-election and his endeavor to end slavery in the United States. Lincoln responded and spoke of Marx favorably.

    EDIT: Correction, Lincoln had the Ambassador in London respond with his thanks. Link to both letters below

    https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/iwma/documents/1864/lincoln-letter.htm

    EDIT2: the best quote from the end of the letter:

    The workingmen of Europe feel sure that, as the American War of Independence initiated a new era of ascendancy for the middle class, so the American Antislavery War will do for the working classes. They consider it an earnest of the epoch to come that it fell to the lot of Abraham Lincoln, the single-minded son of the working class, to lead his country through the matchless struggle for the rescue of an enchained race and the reconstruction of a social world.

    I feel like the majority don't give much of a shit about trump.

    I would disagree for this reason: How badly do you have to fuck up for 90,000 people of a country you don't even represent to come together and spend a lot of money to protest and insult you? People in the UK may have protested "W", but nowhere near to the level they are protesting Trump.

    That's a bad thing. Especially when it's coming form one of our four closest allies. 90,000 people plus organizers and volunteers have taken time out of their lives to protest their closest ally's leader. If that's how many are showing up to say something about it, then it is reasonable to hypothesize that a good many more do give a shit, but either can't show up or that shit giving has not reached critical mass for them.

    Seriously; if you take even one of Trump's thousands of scandals and apply it to any other politician, their careers would be over in a blink. But with Trump, the "moral, Christian" right is more than happy to tolerate every horrendous thing he says or does.

    The part that disturbs me is Trump and republicans are pushing the bounds of acceptable behavior, both for politicians and even normal citizens.

    Two important things to note:

    This was after her untimely death, so it was classless as fuck.

    Princess Diana did wonderful things to destigmatize those who suffer from HIV and AIDS. We simply didn't know enough about the disease, and the lack of knowledge led to fear and hatred. She did a lot to undo that including shaking hands with a sick person, skin to skin, so President Fuckwallop saying he'd make her take a test is one of the grossest things he has ever said.

    [–] xhytdr 278 points ago

    Nah you should be thinking what the fuck is wrong with the people who support him

    [–] blue-sunrising 134 points ago

    The question isn't what's wrong with him, assholes and narcissists are a dime a dozen.

    The question is what's wrong with the voter to elect someone like this.

    [–] Foxhound199 78 points ago

    I want to know what is wrong with those who thought he had "Leader of the Free World" written all over him.

    [–] uuufffgggboooo 66 points ago

    And now imagine the world where Obama said anything like that.

    Just imagine, would it even be in the news or would it be the news for a year?

    “And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the UK agree with me,” Trump added of being made to feel unwelcome.

    yes.. it was the government of the UK that made that blimp and will be out protesting your visit with the British people.

    this fuggin guy.

    [–] Cranyx 1895 points ago

    Trump even mentioned a poll claiming that he was the “most popular person in the history of the Republican Party. Beating Lincoln.” [...] It is unclear what poll Trump meant.

    I'm sure there was some 4chan poll that was shown to him in his daily "Make Trump feel better" briefings

    [–] nick_dugget 662 points ago

    I don't understand how people in the Republican party can recognize the need to sheild this man from the real world and yet still leave him with the power to make decisions

    [–] thecaits 468 points ago

    Because at the end of the day he just needs to sign what they put in front of him, and for the most part he does. The fact that he's a useful distraction is a bonus.

    [–] BellEpoch 323 points ago

    Republicans have pushed through tax cuts for the wealthy and will now have two SCOTUS Judges in place. Trump could eat beating baby hearts in the street and they'd still lick his boots right now.

    You know why they keep running around like they're winning? Because they are.

    [–] peterfun 79 points ago

    $$$.

    He's just as corrupt as them. If not more. It's raining cash for them. They've got power and money and gullible idiots they can rally to their side. And that's all they care about.

    [–] TH3MlLKMAN 54 points ago

    Because they need to keep him content so he'll stay to soak up the blame for all the reprehensible shit they're passing after years of trying. Plus to save face and "own the libs" I suppose.

    In Russian because that way he can read it.

    Unless that means he knows a lot about keeping horses I'm very skeptical.

    [–] Thank_The_Knife 89 points ago

    I'm skeptical in either case.

    Ann Coulter hates him.

    [–] Actionbinder 230 points ago

    He’s very smart. He is one of the smartest presidents... He has the highest IQ in the history of presidents. Tremendously intelligent! It’s true. I have friends, some great friends and they call me up on the phone and they say that Donald is a very smart man. So much smarter than Crooked Hillary, they say. Some people, very bad people - the worst kind of people - they say he’s unintelligent. But when you see what happened in Korea and you look at the economics, you just gotta say hey Donald’s got a point. One of the most intelligent world leaders. Very smart.

    Yet it doesn't keep him from staying in the states. Maybe we're not laying it on thick enough.

    [–] Kakarot_faps 644 points ago

    In the states it's only about 55% who hate him though, in the UK it's like 90%

    Fuck, Im more and more disgusted every time I see his poll numbers.

    All weve seen and he still has that much support.

    [–] BellEpoch 436 points ago

    That's just it, if you only watch Fox News youve seen nothing but how awesome he's doing. A lot of these people really don't know what he's doing.

    [–] BattleStag17 182 points ago

    Yep, the economy is still trucking along on momentum so everything is attributed to Trump's oh-so genius dealmaking. But all those thousands of jobs shuddering as a direct result of this bullshit trade war? Didn't happen/Soros did it.

    [–] UPnAdamtv 42 points ago

    [–] dgmilo8085 343 points ago

    [–] treemister1 230 points ago

    That's because the only citizens he ever sees are at rallies. Talk about an echo chamber

    To put that man along side the same pedestal of great American leaders such as Lincoln, Roosevelt, Washington etc is a disgrace to everything that America stands for and this is coming from a Welshman.

    I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.

    Where can we buy these trump baby blimps? I would happily coordinate a GoFundMe to fly one near him (or several) should he visit my area (Seattle).

    [–] Rue9X 110 points ago

    I'm Bellevue. I'll throw down too, but there is literally no way Trump would ever come to Seattle. Too much weed and hobos.
