President Trump tweeted some well-deserved shots today at London Mayor Sadiq Khan, to include saying that Khan “has done a terrible job” and that he has been “foolishly nasty” to the president of the United Kingdom’s “most important ally.”
He added that Khan is a “stone cold loser” and that he reminds the President of the “very dumb and incompetent” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, but that the London Mayor is “only half his height.”
This little episode can surely be filed under “poke the bear …”
Khan had penned a noxious op-ed in the far-left London fish wrap, The Guardian, on Sunday ahead of Trump’s arrival for his visit to England. Boiled down, the editorial criticized the President as a 20th century fascist, declaring it “un-British” to “roll out the red carpet” for him as a “divisive,” far-right racist.
On his way to the U.K. aboard Air Force One, Trump went online to respond in kind in a double-barreled tweet.
In his first tweet, the President said: @SadiqKhan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly “nasty” to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me……”
He followed that up saying, “….Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!”

Minutes later, the President and his entourage landed at Stansted Airport and then headed to Buckingham Palace for a lunch with Queen Elizabeth, then on to visit Westminster Abbey, a stop for tea with Prince Charles at Clarence House, then in the evening, back to the Palace for a state banquet.
Bill de Blasio and Sadiq Khan do have much in common in that their respective cities are a mess and they both seem more interested in getting attention and furthering their political careers than managing their jurisdictions for the good of their citizens. Both mayors also are known for their anti-Trump ways, so there is no doubt that the President does indeed pair them in his mind as losers.
It would be rather humorous to see the two of them side by side, as de Blasio stands at 6’5″, while Khan is reported to be 5’6″ tall.
