Remember in the run-up to the Brexit referendum, when Barack Obama popped over the pond and gave vocal support to David Cameron’s Remain campaign? And how all the gammon-faced ‘Brexiteers’ frothed at mouth, indignant that the American President had dared to get involved in British politics?
Donald Trump is visiting the UK at the moment. Before he had even landed, he had this to say on Brexit and the recent Chequers draft white paper which led to walking gaffe machine Boris Johnson and David “Four Hours of Negotiating in Two Years” Davis to resign from the Cabinet:

I look forward to Davis, Johnson, Farage, oily nose-first rectal probe Piers Morgan, and MP for the 1870s Rees Mogg and the rest of their ilk throwing their toys out of their pram at his interference in the same way as they did when Obama had the audacity to pass comment (when asked).
Which of course they won’t. We all know why. We all know what they are, and we all know what Trump is.
