British Ambassador Criticizes ‘Clumsy and Inept’ Trump Administration in Leaked Memos

Diplomatic cables sent from the United Kingdom’s ambassador to the United States back to London describe President Donald Trump as inept, insecure and incompetent, a UK government official confirmed Saturday to CNN. While foreign envoys of all nations are often candid in classified dispatches back home, there are periodic episodes when such assessments leak, causing great political embarrassment. Months of efforts by the ambassador, Kim Darroch and his diplomats to build ties and trust with Trump and his political acolytes will be undermined.


Diplomats are masters of discretion, subtlety and finesse, when meeting face-to-face with dictators and tyrants they are courteous, polite, and well diplomatic. Remember when Donald Trump convened his first full Cabinet meeting since taking office and the heads of very major government agency lavished praise on their boss? That’s how diplomats treat even the most ruthless heads of state, they must swallow their tongues and their pride. A diplomat would address the Antichrist himself as worthy opponent of the Almighty, and as the distinguished ambassador of Satan.

The British government released the following statement:

“The British public would expect our Ambassadors to provide Ministers with an honest, unvarnished assessment of the politics in their country. Their views are not necessarily the views of Ministers or indeed the government. But we pay them to be candid. Just as the US Ambassador here will send back his reading of Westminster politics and personalities.”

Ambassadors are the epitome of civility and discretion when interacting with foreign officials, but when reporting back home to government officials they are expected to be brutally honest. I’m convinced that there isn’t a single foreign ambassador who hasn’t told his superiors back home that Trump is a fucking moron who’s clueless about geopolitics.

Journalists aren’t diplomats and it’s incumbent upon them to be candid and unbiased when reporting on the Trump administration. And as for opinion columnists and bloggers, we are free to render our opinions, and my opinion is that Trump is a pathological liar, serial predator, blithering idiot and life-long racist.

Trump on ‘Killer’ Putin: ‘Is Our Country So Innocent’? Trump is Spot On!

“President Donald Trump said he respects Vladimir Putin, and when an interviewer called the Russian leader `a killer,` Trump said the United States has many of them.`What do you think? Our country`s so innocent?` he told Fox`s Bill O`Reilly in an excerpt released by the network.”


Donald Trump doesn`t speak in the language of diplomacy, he speaks his mind bluntly in black and white terms. He paints in broad strokes, and there are only primary colors in his palette — no shades of gray.

Twitter was custom-made for Trump`s speech, don`t expect his ideas and philosophy (such as it is) in policy papers. American politicians and foreign leaders need to accept the reality that Trump doesn`t do nuance or introspection.

Not to put too fine a point on it but Vladimir Putin is a dictator, however I do respect his patriotism and his strong and decisive leadership. What is wrong with anybody with a modicum of integrity and intelligence respecting Putin`s good qualities?

Liberals, of all people, should applaud Trump`s rejoinder when when Bill O`Reilly referred to Putin as a “killer.” Indeed, is America so innocent? I`m cognizant that Putin was the former head of the KGB, but former President George H W Bush was the former head of the CIA. The litany of crimes against humanity committed by the CIA is no less deplorable than those perpetrated by the KGB.

Trump on Putin:

I respect a lot of people, but that doesn`t mean I`m going to get along with him. He`s a leader of his country. I say it`s better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all over the world – that`s a good thing.

What the hell is controversial about Trump`s assessment of Putin? Instead of demonizing and provoking a leader who is sitting on top of a nuclear arsenal that can destroy the world many times over, we should be seeking to work with him whenever our aims and goals align, such as in the war against international terrorism.

Many of Trump`s policies are misguided, but his desire to build a good working relationship with Putin is not!
