Sadiq Khan slays May and Trump on UK TV...
Watching Sadiq Khan being interviewed on ITV news. If you’re not from the UK, he’s the Mayor of London, and happens to be Muslim. I mention this only because he’s recently been the subject of rude and uninformed tweets by US president trump, straight after the London Bridge terror attack on Saturday. Today, Trump again contnued to tweet in ignorance, accusing Khan of making light of the incident.
Khan, of course, mentions he’s voting Labour for investment in police services. when the interviewer asks him whether he thinks the Prime Minister should resign because of cuts to police services.
I expected him to gracefully say it’s not his decision, or perhaps agree with Corbyn. But, without missing a beat, he simply says
“I hope she won’t be Prime Minister on Friday”.
What a way to answer that question. You have to hand it to him for wit.
Also, when asked about Trump’s recent rude tweets, he states that he has little to say on the issue; during the immediate aftermath of the attack, his focus was on more important things; and he stated that he doesn’t have time to trade tweets from the US president.
I feel sorry for the US; we get someone like Khan, who is capable of acting like a grown-up and prioritising their actual job. And they get someone with no reading comprehension, complete lack of basic decency and respect, and who can’t admit that they misread tweets. And who can’t stop picking fights with people instead of sending their condolences.
