Piers Morgan Called For Donald Trump To Help With Brexit – And He Seems To Have Responded

The opinion nobody asked for.

As you’ll no doubt be aware by now, British politics is so broken that last night a government motion was defeated by members of the government who had been told by the government to vote for the government.

Sounds confusing? Well, it is.

Thankfully, Piers Morgan has offered up a solution which absolutely nobody asked for – bring in the Donald.

This far-from-rousing Twitter appeal accompanied by a picture that looks like a seven-year-old meeting Santa Claus for the first time was met with the grace and civility we’ve all come to expect from Twitter.

But Morgan’s appeal looks like it may have worked – up to a point.

Just hours later the president tweeted: ”My Administration looks forward to negotiating a large scale Trade Deal with the United Kingdom. The potential is unlimited!”

Again, Twitter stepped up to the plate.

On a more serious note, there are concerns Trump may be harbouring a bit of a desire for a no-deal Brexit after it was reported he met face-to-face with Nigel Farage earlier this month.

The former Ukip leader was attempting to win his backing for a no-deal Brexit and compared leaving the EU with the denuclearisation of North Korea – because they’re so very similar, obviously.

The conversation took place at the Conservative Political Action Conference (Cpac) in Washington, an event involving conservative speakers, The Daily Telegraph reported.

“I was talking to him about Vietnam, where he had said that a bad deal was on the table so sometimes you have to walk. That was the exact quote from Trump.” Farage told the newspaper.

But the Atlantic’s David Frum pointed out this might not be int he best interest of the UK. In a tweet he wrote: “President Trump has since 2016 urged the UK into a no-deal Brexit with a view to wrecking the European Union and forcing an isolated, vulnerable UK to accede to US trade demands.

“He has hit the UK with steel tariffs. Trump may be Piers Morgan’s friend, but he’s not Britain’s.”

Anyway, regardless of all that, what’s really important is that someone has noticed a remarkable similarity between Donald Trump and the infamous and probably not real Sasquatch.

Confused yet? You should be, and there’s no indication things are going to get better anytime soon.

Oh, if only it was 1930 again...
