Anti-Muslim Bigot & Demagogue U.S. President Trump Slimes London Mayor After Terrorist Attack

The city of London just experienced a rampage by three Islamofascists who murderously drove a van into people, then attacked bar-goers just enjoying life, with long knives, killing seven people and wounding 48, 18 grievously enough to be listed in critical condition.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq  Khan, a Muslim, naturally spoke to reassure the citizenry and to vow that terrorism wouldn't intimidate the people of London. One thing he said was this:

“You will see an increased police presence today, including armed officers and uniformed officers,” Khan said on Sunday, June 4th. “There is no reason to be alarmed by this.”

The U.S. president, rather than showing solidarity and support, instead attacked Khan in a thoroughly dishonest fashion.

Trump deliberately distorted what Mayor Khan said by pretending he was telling people not to be alarmed by terror attacks (which actually would have been fine if he had said that):

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’” Trump verbally ejaculated.

The mayor’s office responded to Trump's gratuitous attack that  Khan “has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police — including armed officers — on the streets.”

Thus the mayor took the high road, saying he had more pressing matters to attend to than to respond to Trump's slur. He's right- getting into a pissing match with a dishonest skunk like Trump is a bad idea. (Witness the fate of the other Republicans who ran for president against Trump. Trump's entire strategy was to personally insult them in juvenile terms. And it worked. Then he did it to Clinton, who won, but lost, because under the rules of the World's Greatest Democracy, sometimes the person with fewer votes wins.)

But Trump wasn't through. He launched another attack on Khan in reaction to the statement from the Mayor's office that responded to Trump's initial assault:

“Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!” Trump tweeted in his usual dignified fashion, perhaps sitting on the toilet at the time.

Trump has been holding a grudge against Khan since 2016, when Khan declared Trump "ignorant" about Islam (a factually true statement) and was quoted in  Time magazine saying, “I’m confident that Donald Trump’s approach to politics won’t win in America.”

So Trump went on British television to issue an ominous threat: "I think they're very rude statements and frankly, tell him, I will remember those statements,” Trump growled.  “They're very nasty statements.”

I'll tell you who makes nasty statements... well I don't have to, do I?

FUCK Common Decency!
