As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video || Trump: Brexit is Good for Me

Donald Trump said in Scotland today that the vote by Britain to leave the European Union is going to help him.

It think he’s right. Even thought we tend to run on a separate track from the rest of the world, Britain is kind of our cousin country, and it will have an effect.

“I think people really see a big parallel . . . people want to take their country back,” Trump said. “I think that it’s happening in the United States. It’s happening by the fact that I’ve done so well in the polls.”

Smart of him to be there as the vote unfolded, associating himself with the result.

  1. Whether it is timing, a fluke, fate whatever critical issues have been brought to the forefront by Donald Trump, that might otherwise have remained buried. And say what you will about him — he takes the slings and arrows and he fights for this country. I am good with that.

  2. It happens in business. It happens in politics. Timing is everything. Lets all pray that Trump’s timing takes out Hillary and makes America Great Again. The Brits and Americans are all pissed off.

    • So are the Dutch, Swedes, Nordes, French, Austrians, Poles, Hungarians, Italians, Greeks, ………
      Maybe I should have just said:
      So are everyone in Europe except the elite a$$hats in Brussels and Berlin.

    • Yes. A well-known columnist said it like this:
      This isn’t a Right/Left argument, a elite vs the working class, but rather a divide between the “protected class and the unprotected”.
      The protected class doesn’t deal with unemployed in-laws or children, doesn’t worry about the cost of healthcare, and has no interaction with Spanish speaking illegal aliens. The protected have armed security guards at their place of business, watching over their children and feel secure.
      The unprotected bear the weight and consequences of every bad political move, every regulation, every dollar wasted, and have no one to protect them.

  3. gracepc is right, timing is everything.
    MrTrump’s visit to Scotland might have been a lucky coincidence, but he’s there to play it well. He saw the anger or frustration of the working middle class in the US with our elites and made it work for him.
    With all the noise made by financial markets, the political future of English leaders, the little sound of every poll taken in GB that showed a Remain majority was wrong. The polls were wrong because the voters lied to the questioners about their preference to Stay or Remain. They lied in fear of political or personal consequences for being labeled racist or worse.
    Here in the colonies, voters must be lying about their preferences, too. So many are afraid of being labeled racist, anti-everything, maybe losing their jobs for expressing the non-PC choices, or just to keep something they feel a secret. The ballot box will tell us if they were lying.

    • Great for him and the people he’ll have to hire to handle all those tourist.
      Employees who will have money to spend, of course after paying taxes, and the tourist who also spend money in local economy.
      Still will have the slugs sitting on their butts waiting for that Gov’t check and have no intention of working.

      • No, he doesn’t. Supposedly this resort in Scotland is a project of his kids and his kids will be managing his empire–I thought blind trusts were required or at least customary…

          • Yeah, Hillary Clinton is obsessed with money. She is no better than a street begger, asking her supporters to even send her
            $1.00! I heard her ask for money from her poor, some raggedy looking people, her supporters at her rallies and I could not believe it. She took money from terrorist countries and put it in her Foundation, She shouldn’t be allowed to do that. But the liberal media never talks about greedy Hillary, every night, headlines about Trump. I would vote for Trump any day of the week, instead of liar, money grubbing Hillary Clinton/ She’s crooked Hillary, thats for sure and let the Ambassador die in Benghazi, never lifting a finger to help him, when he begged and begged and begged for help and she refused him? Why? I never heard of any SOS REFUSING to help when asked? She must be crazy to do that. And she wants to be president? Forget about it. Vote Trump, he will make America great again.

  4. CONGRATULATIONS on winning back your freedom and putting Great back in Great Britain.
    God bless The Queen, your country and its people.
    Dieu et mon droit

  5. Cameron resignation speech. Very respectful and quietly strong. Clearly loves his country.

    Compare to Barack’s behaviour when someone raises an eyebrow suggesting they might disagree with him, and the temper tantrum and lecture also.

  6. You are all so exhilarated over this and I say You Brexit, You Bought It. No one knows the fallout that is coming…Simplistic things like “they took their country back” are bumperstickers…What about the financial markets (already reacting badly here), more countries leaving, for that matter won’t Sweden miss the resources Britain chucked in…I don’t think you–or I–know the half of this…

    • “…and I say You Brexit, You Bought It.”

      YOU didn’t say that…it’s an anti-Brexit meme that’s been floating around for a few months now.

    • Gee. I’m just shocked you would prefer a bunch of busy bodies in Brussels telling people what to do instead of elected officials voted in by their own constituents.

      You’re a statist. An antithesis of freedom.

    • Star, I believe that Great Britain will survive and even triumph. Despite the changes in the country since WWII, the British are still the proud people who survived the Blitz, who defended their nation and their colonies, who once had the greatest empire in history. Mr. Churchill is no longer spinning in his grave!

    • Talk about lectures. Every day we have to hear Star’s? lectures? There should be a limit to these lectures about Brexit and Trump, etc. Go join the dems websites! We are definitely not going to listen to you, thats for sure!

  7. I was listening to the BBC this morning and a young woman, described herself as college educated and a professional, couldn’t believe how the vote ended up. She then went on to say ppl like her should have had two votes because of her education and status. What a crock.

  8. The gods must be crazy…about Trump!
    Against all odds, he showed up in Scotland (where they voted in favor of the UK staying in the EU by 62% to 38% – with all 32 council areas backing Remain), and before he even had time to unpack, the world was rocked by the Brexit earthquake.
    The aftershocks are still reverberating across the globe. The next five months will be interesting, to say the least. Obama’s legacy and Hillary’s future are about to go into a tailspin, hopefully. What happens after that is anyone’s guess!

    • You sound so happy, Girly…It won’t be the big boys getting crushed if crushing is coming….More chaos, hostility, less cooperation…is it all good, as the kids say? And also–it is no accident Trump came today–it is not good luck–but then someone told him Scotland was hugely not for Brexit and he modulated, still insisting he didn’t need to ask his foreign policy people anything about it. Oh, well–five years isn’t up yet–we shall see…

      • In spite of the fact that I am not a Trump supporter, he always manages to land on his feet when the going gets rough, i.e. the Paris attack hours after Obama said ISIS was no longer a problem; the SCOTUS 4-4 decision yesterday re amnesty for Dreamers, etc.

        As for Brexit, I am 100% against the EU and globalization. Great Britain is not Venezuela. It is, and always will be, a major player on the global stage.
        Obama is full of it when he warns/threatens the Brits that they will ‘have to go to the end of the queue’ if they leave.

        Brexit will also put the kibosh on Obama’s ‘secret’ Trade deal, hopefully. Another blow to his ‘legacy’.

        We shall see, Star. Give it time.

        • I don’t know about landing on his feet–his remarks at his presser on the golf course were almost incomprehensible–how Brexit would benefit his golf course, which he remarked was often underwater from waves, how many small contribs he will get in June, no make that July probably, how he just came to support his kids in their latest golf course venture (despite a long story in the Wash Post the other day on his many personal travails with this project), let’s see what else, oh, he is doing amazing in the polls, the two suites in the Lighthouse part of the resort are uh…amazing… I don’t even remember it all–flight of ideas basically, which is a psychiatric term. Oh, and he loves Cameron, great great guy.

          • Star, I don’t want to see Trump in the WH any more than you do. However, he does seem to be benefiting from the growing populist revolution and the sins of the Clinton/Obama regimes.

            I still believe that he was never ‘serious’ about occupying 1600, only ‘winning’ the nomination.

            So far, Trump has not made much of an ‘investment’ in his
            candidacy. $50M in the primaries and $1.3M so far in the main event. He has already reimbursed himself for the Trump jet and other personal expenses. He stated this morning that he really didn’t want to, but he had to follow the rules. Whatever that means.

            When the writer from Vanity Fair interviewed him a couple of weeks ago, Trump didn’t know what ‘Brexit’ was. Unbelievable!

            IMO, Trump will be looking for the exit door before the Convention. This reality show will be abruptly cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

          • Talk about exploding heads! I would finally get a night’s sleep, on the other hand…

            Diff subj, I think Obama has backed off his threats to Britain (end of the queue, etc) bec now he says they are still our BFFs.

  9. OT. Apropos of nothing.

    For information junkies — those of us who will read anything,including placemats and cereal boxes. :)

    From refdesk.com I found this. It appears to be very useful, efficient and eclectic. It’s from the chronicle of Higher Education so some of you might know it. And no, it’s not crazy leftist liberal. I mean who doesn’t want to know about inventing the beach at Smithsonian Magazine. Essential info for sure. :

    Thought some of you might enjoy it.

  10. Personally, I’m gloating over yet another rebuke of Obama’s words and “policies”. In April when he told the UK residents they better vote to stay in the EU or he’d seat them at the back of the bus, they told HIM last night to stick to what you know – GOLF. It’s fabulous to watch Obama eat so much crow.

    • Global entrepreneurship — way out of his wheelhouse. He just wants to hang out with the New World Techies — he also wants their money and they in turn want power. The story of Silicon Valley and WDC. The story of the wealthy and the bureaucrats and the politicians. Those that have power want money. Those that have money want power. It’s a beautiful thing really. :)

      • At one point, he said Stanford “made nerds fashionable, something like that, and waited for howls of mirth. No mirth. I think he wants to be a nerd but he’s a dweeb. Big diff.

      • He wants so much to be relevant.
        We here have been on to him since day one.
        Hopefully, the next six months will be a constant failure for his policies.

        He has met his enemy and they are US.

      What amused me was how he tried to milk the unenthusiastic audience for applause after he was introduced. He kept shouting ‘Thank You, Thank You, Thank you so much’ a total of NINE times!
      He finally got them revved up to a mild roar, and then kept telling them to be seated. Such a phony!
