Since we all deserve a bit of a mental palate cleanser…
Theresa May at this Trump press conference is like your aunt trying to pretend that your racist uncle didn’t say the n-word in the middle of family dinner.

Per the Washington Post:
LONDON — A squad of “babysitters” in orange jackets pumped helium into a giant “Trump Baby” balloon and let it soar above Westminster Abbey on Friday, kicking off a day of large, peaceful and often mocking protests against President Trump’s visit here.
Although there were rallies across Britain, the largest was in central London. In the slowly moving throng, there were “drag queens against Trump,” “families against Trump,” “trumpeters against Trump” — you name it.
Police did not give an official estimate of the crowd size. Organizers claimed more than 100,000 were on the streets.
The demonstrators looked like London: urbane and liberal, bringing their kids and dogs along. Many signs were handmade and droll. “Special relationship? I want a divorce.”…
In the interview with the Sun, Trump grumbled about the protests. “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London,” he told the paper. “I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
This was welcome news for the organizers of the blimp.
“It’s worked spectacularly well. We’ve basically run him out of London. He’s got the message: He’s not welcome here,” said Leo Murray, the brains behind the Trump Baby project…

This is hilarious. The Queen acting like she’s training one of her dogs as Trump struggles to master the art of walking. pic.twitter.com/M7tNwJFlOX
