Tell him you have other plans that day

Shame on Theresa May.

(I’ve never liked that phrase – “shame on ___.” But I’m afraid it’s going to become indispensable in our new reality.)

She is refusing to tell Donald Trump to forget about that state visit. Well she damn well should tell him that.

US President Donald Trump’s planned state visit to the UK will go ahead no matter how many people sign a petition against it, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday.

More than a million people have so far called for the visit to be cancelled.

The petition, if accepted by Parliament, will force MPs to debate the motion: “Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom.”

However, Theresa May insisted the visit would still go ahead, no matter how many people signed a petition against it.

It shouldn’t. I know it’s a very big deal to cancel a state visit, but what Trump is doing is a much bigger deal – which means that the fact that canceling is a big deal is all the more reason to cancel.
