A more animated time

Remember that time Trump went to meet with Obama during the transition period? And came away raving about what a great guy he is and what rapport they had and how much Obama liked him? Now he’s doing it about the queen. He thinks the queen liked him.

Mind you, he hadn’t previously spent years insisting the queen was born in Kenya and shouldn’t even be the queen, so that commonality is missing. But the rest is unpleasantly reminiscent.

The US president, Donald Trump, has boasted about having “automatic chemistry” with the Queen during his state visit to the UK.

Trump, during an interview with Fox News, said people had noticed how well he and the Queen had connected.

He said: “The meeting with the Queen was incredible. I think I can say I really got to know her because I sat with her many times and we had automatic chemistry, you will understand that feeling. It’s a good feeling. But she’s a spectacular woman.”

He thinks she liked him. He thinks that wasn’t her trained skilled ceremonial politeness to any head of state she’s required to schmooze with, he thinks it’s personal. Dude, if it were personal you wouldn’t get any closer than Hoboken.

“There are those that say they have never seen the Queen have a better time, a more animated time. We had a period we were talking solid straight, I didn’t even know who the other people at the table were, never spoke to them. We just had a great time together.”

Are there. Really. Are there really those that say they have never seen the Queen have a better time? I’m gonna go with “no,” because what are the odds? Unless he just means that everyone in his retinue said that, in which case it’s literally true because they have never seen the queen have any kind of time, better or worse or indifferent, on account of how they don’t hang out with her. But if he means people who actually know the queen and see her having times, then no. They don’t say that.
