The Guardian reported earlier this month that Trump has told May he does not want to go ahead with the state visit until the British public supports it.
The comments, made in a phone call, would seem to put the visit on hold indefinitely.
He's obsessed with "winning" and being accepted as a big deal by powerful and wealthy people. This has to sting because the British monarchy is the ultimate symbol of this.
That's a long wait for a train don't come
May is imploding and taking her party with her. She isn't really the asset she was just a month ago after forcing an election that did not go the way she thought it would.
EDIT: Over use of words.
There was NO LINE at our Roswell location 30 minutes ago.

Fucking hell georgia dems. What the hell is it gonna take to get out and vote?
A fucking GOP candidate body slammed a reporter and still won, I have my doubts anything will change
Surprise. Trump does not give a shit about terrorism. He just knows he can use the brown variety as a cudgel. I guess just being able to say Islamic terrorism does not imbue you with some magic power to defeat it.
Oh no, t_d has comments. They'd like to point out just how fast the motive was determined for this attack, as if pointing out hypocrisy is worse than killing innocent people.
Sounds suspiciously similar to the leaking being more important than the info being leaked.
TD Poster: "It's Muslims, we already know it's Muslims, why dig deeper? Muslims. Called. It."
it's a white 'non-muslim' (for the semantic asshole that knew exactly what I meant, but couldn't find a substantial, constructive argument to put up against a fucking joke, so they pointed out something irrelevant because that's all they could come up with) guy
TD Poster: "Uh, excuse me, they determined that REALLY fast. How is this not suspicious?"
EDIT: Context for idiots
surprise surprise, when white people do it, conservatives stop talking.
"I prefer sailors who don't die."
Well, we are dealing with a guy who bragged about surviving his own personal Vietnam War during the 90's (avoiding STDs from women). Now that's a true American hero.
It's sad that Trump would take Fathers Day to tweet lie about his "approval rating" instead of the seven US Sailors who died.
Fixed it for you.
I'm on the "trump is a tool" train with everyone else...but he did tweet about the sailors. He did it yesterday. And what does father's day have to do with anything?
We shouldn't hate on the guy over verifiably false things when there's so much real stuff we can be calling him out for. It ruins credibility.
Isn't Julius actually a sympathetic character in the play? My interpretation of the play was they killed Caesar on baseless assumptions and everything is worse for everyone.
Yes, the killing of Julius Caesar was a horrible mistake and an interpretation of the play is that it's a condemnation of violence against political rivals.
These are the same guys who think Born In the USA is a patriotic song.
But do you think that American conservatives would bother to look into the context? Of course not. They see a politician character getting killed and assume that the play must be celebrating the assassination of politicians.
Rosenstein is a Trump appointee, and is in charge of the Russian investigation because Sessions had to recuse himself.
Rosenstein is the only person who can fire Mueller, and Rosenstein has indicated that he will not.
Trump is now attacking Rosenstein, which likely means Trump wants to get rid of Rosenstein, in order to get rid of Mueller.
Saturday Night Massacre II, here we come.
Since some people have asked, the Saturday Night Massacre refers to when Nixon wanted to fire the Special Prosecutor who was investigating him.
Nixon ordered the Attorney General to fire the Special Prosecutor, and the Attorney General resigned in protest.
Nixon then ordered the Deputy Attorney General to fire the Special Prosecutor, and the Deputy Attorney General also resigned in protest.
Nixon then ordered the Solicitor General to fire the Special Prosecutor, and he did it. That was Robert Bork. Later Ronald Reagan, in his fucked up wisdom, thought Bork deserved a seat on the Supreme Court.
Aright but can we just agree if Trump goes through with a Saturday Night Massacre scenario, we're gonna call it the "Bowling Green Massacre"?
Did he tell Lester Holt on a nationally televised interview that "he was preparing to fire FBI Director Comey regardless of recommendations from the attorney gene...
Yes, alienate the House republicans you need on your side to have ANY chance at preventing impeachment. Brilliant strategy, sir.
Let's just recap the absurdity here. House passes shitty bill that will boot 23 million people off health insurance with no debate or scrutinty and before it even gets a CBO score. Then they all gather outside the WH for a press conference to declare how great they are while they drink shitty piss beer. Then they meet behind closed doors and he tells them their bill sucks. Then that private info is leaked to the press because they all hate his guts. This is a goddamn soap opera. Except it's not just for harmless entertainment, millions of American lives and financial futures are at stake. Fucking idiots.
It makes me wander if Trump has ever really created any of his own success? I'd think if you plucked an average guy or gal off the street and placed them in the White House, they'd be doing a better job then Trump. How can you so consistently alienate so many key political allies, for no conceivable purpose or gain, and think you'll accomplish anything?
I used to be worried about his intentions; now I think his ineptitude will save us a great deal of heartache in the end as he struggles to accomplish anything that isn't signing fake executive orders. Turns out he was never a player in either Russia or business, only a useful pawn.
I'm with you. Also, if you're Putin and are planning on getting Trump elected to fuck with the US, would you really want Trump to know about it? I would think Trump himself would be the last person to know. That way he won't accidentally slip up and tweet something incriminating. No, Putin's too smart for that. He'd likely go through people close to Trump. Like Jared. Or Flynn. People who can be depended on to keep a secret. And he likely wouldn't be giving any American agent of his the full picture so that even if they were questioned their stories wouldn't match up. This is all stuff out of the KGB playbook, and Putin is a master at it. Trump is too stupid and unreliable to be a willing agent on this whole thing.
He's had business dealing with Russian mobsters through his real estate empire. I believe he may have been in their pocket due to financial entanglements long before his latest campaign.
I want to believe.
Do not push for impeachment. If impeachment is premature, the fucker is untouchable. He's a fucking idiot; his hubris will provide all the rope needed for him to hang, and the longer he hangs on the more of the GOP goes down with him.
She also said confidently multiple times that Trump would NEVER be president. I want Trump gone as much as the next guy and I actually like Pelosi, but she doesn't have credibility on this.
I'll believe it when I see it; this fucker is a cockroach.
Trump has criticized America's free press more often than he has criticized Russian election interference. Heck, Trump has criticized beauty pageant contestants more often than he has the Russian election interference.

Criticism of Russia for historic election interference:<crickets>
This huge underlying problem just goes unnoticed in this whole shit storm. This should never ever happen and this is not a partisan issue.
I can't even find any words to describe the people who think this is a liberal issue, you are basically killing your own democracy by ignoring this issue.
To quote a Supreme Court decision:
"Debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide-open, and that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials."
William J. Brennan, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 1964).
Just the one about beauty pageant contestants? I definitely thought there would be more...
Trump isn't the problem. He is a symptom. The problem is at this moment the Republican party. I used to think the Democrats were just as fucked. And maybe they are. But right now, the number of republicans that are allowing this shit to continue, in their name, is insane.
At the end of it, I'm really hoping Gorsuch shows some backbone and character when this inevitably goes to SCOTUS. Think of the comments about loyalty that would be made then...
Democrats are fucked, but not "just as much". If the Republicans had elected and then given laughable amounts of loyalty to anyone else they could have kept up the illusion of both parties being the same. But as it stands, they elected a bigger threat to our country than ISIS. And they continue to stand by him somehow..
This is my thing. Did the Dems do some shady stuff? Yes. Was Clinton a perfect candidate? No. But to pretend that she would be "just as bad" as Trump is so stupid. He's flagrantly violating the constitution and breaking campaign promises every single day. The false equivalence is laughable.
