Ban the President of the United States.
That will probably happen in real life, right? If you sign a petition?
An online petition to prevent US President Donald Trump making an official state visit to the UK has generated enough signatures to warrant it being considered for debate in parliament. The petition gathered over 80,000 signatures in the last hour alone.
The petition was initially opened in the immediate aftermath of Trump’s election in November 2016 but following Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ executive order on Friday, it has garnered huge support online.
“Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen,”the petition states.
The petition also precludes President Trump from meeting with The Prince of Wales in any official capacity: “Donald Trump’s well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales. Therefore during the term of his presidency Donald Trump should not be invited to the United Kingdom for an official State Visit.”
British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn tweeted the petition just after midday on January 29:
Since posting Corbyn’s tweet, the petition has crossed the threshold needed for it to be debated in the British Parliament and currently boasts more than 140,000 signatures beyond the 100,000 required to trigger a parliamentary debate.
These people are such children.
That is what we have in the Western world now.
A bunch of grown-up children.
Outside of anything political, it is disgusting to see grown adults throwing tantrums like babies.
