My goodness – Trump was rude to the queen?  Our leaders should respect the customs and protocols of other nations just as we expect them to respect ours.  What on earth...

    LONDON Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nations capital on Saturday a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city. While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international medias attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons. The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red MAGA hats and U.S. and U.K. flags -- as...
