I am sure many Brits would love to have a leader like Trump. The ones who opted for Brexit, for example.

the self-loathing brits that wish their culture to be washed away by an EU on the other hand...

Where'd you get that frame of reference from....self perceived superiority....we don't all come from the set of Downton Abbey!!!...anyway....I'm reasonably certain many in the world expected better from a US Presidential office holder but that expectation evaporated rather swifty when he started talking!!

Comfort is not relevant! If 't be true thou believeth the tabloid news, then thou hast a false sense of what is very much going on.

I love telling Americans that if they were sensible, they would petition the British to take them on again as a colony until they are ready for self-government.
