President Sissy von AnusMouth is having a bad week. He’s gone from being the most hated man in America to possibly being the most hated man in the world. Not only is he forcing Congress to include his dumbass border wall in all negotiations for possible immigrant reform, but during a Thursday meeting, he went full Jeff Sessions and let all his racist ass hang out, calling some black and brown countries “shithole countries.”


So Donald Trump was supposed to head across the pond for a U.S. Embassy dedication in London, but at the last minute he pulled out and did what he always does when things don’t go his way: That’s right, he blamed the black man’s administration.

“Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for ‘peanuts,’” Trump wrote on Twitter late Thursday. “Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!”

Or, perhaps, Trump finally got the memo that London doesn’t fuck with him.

“President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and action the polar opposite of our city’s values,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a statement released on Twitter.

Trump knows that he’s not welcome in London, and probably didn’t want to deal with the hordes of people who were planning to show up to protest his visit. Not to mention that the U.S. ambassador to London tore the president’s lame excuse out of the frame.


“The new embassy is not just bigger, it is better and capable of meeting the complex challenges of the 21st century and beyond. It is the most secure, hi-tech and environmentally friendly embassy that the United States has ever built,” Trump’s ambassador to Britain, businessman and New York Jets owner Robert “Woody” Johnson, wrote in Britain’s Evening Standard newspaper.

And here’s how the Washington Post described Trump’s concerns about the new location:

Yet its “off location” Trump described is by design. The sprawling 450-acre compound south of the Thames River, fixed on a hill and surrounded by a moat and other security measures, fulfills security requirements that embassies be isolated from other buildings and 100 feet away from roads to avoid car bombs and other attacks following the al-Qaeda embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998. The old embassy is located in a bustling area of central London flanked by buildings and has struggled to keep pace with rising staff levels there.

“Security concerns after September 11 meant we had to move to a location that could better protect American citizens and our British neighbours,” Johnson wrote.


But we get it: Trump blames everything on former President Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or Democrats. This is what he does whenever anything doesn’t go his way.

It’s even better than all that. Here’s the announcement for the plan of the new embassy:

“This has been a long and careful process,” said Ambassador Robert Tuttle, who has led the search for a new site. “We looked at all our options, including renovation of our current building on Grosvenor Square. In the end, we realized that the goal of a modern, secure and environmentally sustainable Embassy could best be met by constructing a new facility. I’m excited about America playing a role in the regeneration of the South Bank of London.”
