The BBC thought British Prime Minister Theresa May would trash President Donald Trump; instead, she pays him the best compliment possible — twice.
When asked if she thought Trump was “a child or a stable genius,” May grimaced at the question, and commended Trump for acting in America’s best interests.
“What I make of him is somebody who is taking decisions on what he believes is in the best interests of the United States,” May said. “The United Kingdom government and I will take decisions here on what we believe is in the best interests of the UK.”
BBC reporter Andrew Marr then restated the question to May: “In the States, there are quite serious questions being raised by some people about his mental state. Do you think they’re serious?”
Prime Minister May replied: “No. As I say when I deal with President Trump, what I see is somebody who is committed to ensuring that he is making decisions in the best interests of the United States.”
May, a liberal member of the Tories (the U.K.’s conservative party), has criticized Trump in the past, but said she’s looking forward to working with him to further U.S.-British relations when he visits the United Kingdom soon. “He will be coming to this country,” May said.
Predictably, liberals blasted May on Twitter for supporting the U.S. president.

Theresa May was asked about Trump’s mental health amid relentless media attacks slamming his mental fitness to be president.
The coordinated attacks on Trump’s mental health appear to be a sign that the media is pivoting away from the “Trump-Russia collusion” narrative after a year-long investigation has yielded no evidence of collusion.
President Trump will visit U.S. ally Britain despite vocal opposition by anti-Trumpers like Sadiq Khan, the Muslim mayor of London.
In June 2017, Khan said the British government should cancel a planned state visit by Trump because he’s upset that Trump had criticized his lax stance on terrorism.
Trump slammed Khan on Twitter for blithely telling Londoners there’s “no reason to be alarmed” after an Islamist terrorist attack at London Bridge killed 7 people and injured 48.
While the mainstream media is acting like Trump’s comments came out of the blue, Khan previously said Europeans must get used to terrorist attacks because it’s “part and parcel of living in a big city.” Meanwhile, bigger cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo don’t have weekly terrorist attacks. Just sayin’.
In contrast, Trump vowed: “We will win this fight against terrorism. We will destroy ISIS and we will protect civilization.”
Khan has always been an apologist for Muslim terrorists. In 2002, Khan defended 9/11 terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, who confessed to being a member of Al Qaeda.
In 2001, Khan was the lawyer for the Nation of Islam and successfully overturned the High Court’s 15-year ban on its anti-white, anti-Semitic leader, Louis Farrakhan.
In Sadiq Khan’s London, most police do not carry firearms. Terrorists and other criminals use guns, but cops aren’t allowed to. That’s why eyewitnesses said they saw unarmed police running away from the terrorists on London Bridge, leaving citizens to fend for themselves. Let that sink in.
