The vulgar spectacle continues to unfurl.

The UK’s “wacky” ambassador to the US is “a very stupid guy” Donald Trump has said, amid a row over leaked emails.

This came after Downing Street reaffirmed its “full support” for Sir Kim Darroch.

It’s like having Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as president.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Mr Trump’s comments are “disrespectful and wrong to our Prime Minister and my country.”

In a tweet to Mr Trump, the Tory leadership hopeful added: “Ambassadors are appointed by the UK government and if I become PM our Ambassador stays.”

A spokesman for Theresa May said that Sir Kim is “a dutiful, respected government official” and confirmed there are no plans for Mrs May and Mr Trump to hold a call to discuss relations following the leak.

Sir Kim will now no longer meet the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump as scheduled on Tuesday, the BBC has been told.

So that’s a big reward.

Why is Ivanka Trump having a meeting with Britain’s International Trade Secretary in the first place? So that she can flog her merch to him?

The Beeb adds a photo of Princess with the caption “Ivanka Trump, pictured arriving at a dinner Sir Kim was disinvited from on Monday, was due to meet the ambassador later.”

Sleazy, corrupt, vulgar, rude – we’re really ticking all the boxes, aren’t we.
