      To perhaps shed some light on this for non-Britons, Jayda Fransen is the deputy leader of a group called Britain First.

      Put it this way, even the Daily Mail think that Britain First are a bit extreme.

        Appears all the tweets had video ... Trump links all redirect to a twitter censorship page.

          Oh god, every time I hear that utter fucking mouth breather, she makes me want to self-mutilate my ears. I mean, could we at least have some well spoken bigots? They've always got to be badly-dressed mockney wankers for some reason.

              This was clearly a well-calculated ploy by the president to steal attention away from his next most recent calamitous insult.

                  I thought the tweets were to set the record straight with the MSM. But with Donald, tweets can be a diplomatic tool as well asking leaders of allied countries to shut up. hey, who needs a secretary of state.

                    He is piling up embarassement on embarassement
                    On the other hand, if he achieves to antagonize even UK (with its special accross the Atlantic relationship mindset) that would be quite an achievement

                        Especially when the tweets tend to go a completely different than flesh-and-blood SecofState.

                        It will be interesting to see how much of a realpolitik-driven threshold foreign leaders have to being ranted at.

                          Apparently Britain First announced they'll be holding their annual conference in Coventry - it seems of the 1.9 million people they tricked into 'liking' them on facebook, 45 have said they'll going.

For the American members: he (and that Britain first woman) is basically using something that you'd find on Worldstar...
