‘Hell no!’ Leftists freak out after CNN’s Tapper said Biden should invite Trump to Queen’s funeral

It should not come as any great surprise that the Trump-obsessed media would find a way to make even the passing of Queen Elizabeth II all about former President Donald Trump, and that is exactly the case as CNN’s Jake Tapper and his panel discussed whether he should be invited to her funeral.

The topic came up during Friday’s edition of “The Lead” as Tapper and his guests discussed the appropriate political protocol of Trump taking the trip across the pond to pay his respects to the Queen for whom he clearly had very warm feelings, and how the White House should handle the delicate situation with a man who just had tens of millions of his loyal supporters smeared as fascists and enemies of the state by President Joe Biden.

“There’s something that is just like fascinating me, which is the notion that it’s going to be basically left up to President Biden as to whether or not he brings other presidents with him to the Queen’s funeral,” Tapper said. “I mean, the U.K. has made it very clear, that’s up to the president, he is invited and he can bring whatever delegation. So obviously, Obama, you know, Carter, Bush, no-brainers. What about Trump? Will he invite Trump?”

CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jeff Zeleny responded, “We’ll see, that is a difficult question of protocol, of diplomacy, but I am told by a couple diplomatic officials that, look, Buckingham Palace is leaving up to every country individually, I mean imagine the nightmare of trying to – you have former presidents and former defense ministers, but in this case, it would be an easy solution if Trump wasn’t in the picture.”

“We’ll see what they do,” he said, noting that when Barack Obama was president that he invited former presidents Bush, Carter and Clinton to travel to South African leader Nelson Mandela’s funeral. “Who knows, maybe in the spirit of forgiving and giving, President Biden will invite Donald Trump on the Air Force One. I doubt that’ll happen but I do expect some type of a bipartisan delegation, but look, they are leaving to the White House we’re told. The White House is saying we’re not going to say anything about this until the palace makes funeral arrangements. But by Monday, they’re going to have to figure this out because the funeral time will be announced tomorrow.”

“I think that the clever move is to invite him,” Tapper said, “and see if he goes, I don’t think President Trump, former President Trump would want to be subordinate on Air Force One and I think probably he prefers his own plane anyway.”

Tapper’s suggestion of such a magnanimous and out-of-character move by Biden was received like nails on a chalkboard by Resistance Twitter.

Trump has devoted over a dozen posts on Truth Social to Queen Elizabeth II whom he described as “a grand and beautiful lady she was—there was nobody like her!…”

The politicizing of funerals is nothing new for the liberal establishment, they did the same thing when Senator John McCain died, turning what should have been a solemn service of dignity and respect into a veritable anti-Trump rally.
