National embarrassment/president, Donald Trump, is in the United Kingdom, making a mockery of the United States, spouting racist bile, and riling our allies. Dustin’s covering the politics. I’m covering the inspiring Together Against Trump National Demonstration that’s taken over the streets of central London and beyond. Tens of thousands were anticipated to turn up for this protest march, and among them were Ash Sarkar, the communist heroine who called Trump fanboy Piers Morgan an idiot to his face, and a dedicated batch of babysitters who wrangled a massive Trump baby balloon.
Anti-Trump Coalition organizer @AyoCaesar, speaking live from protests in London: "Donald Trump has gravely misjudged the temperature in this country… He will no longer be able to comfort himself with the lie that he is well-liked by the British people. He's despised" #DNlive pic.twitter.com/goLxSesgzU— Democracy Now! (@democracynow) July 13, 2018

Large protests underway in London as Pres. Trump meets with Prime Minister May outside the city. One protester's sign reads "Feed him to the Corgis," a reference to the Queen's favorite pet. She's had many over the years. Her last full-bred Corgi passed in April. #KOMOnews pic.twitter.com/cYKpb5wjCs— Cayle Thompson, KOMO (@CayleThompson) July 13, 2018
As you can see, I’m taking the US Embassy’s advice to lie low today… As a dual citizen, I love my country, but I detest the hate and lies the current Republican leaders are spewing. Sewer politics.💩 #London #TrumpVisitUK #LibDemsAgainstTrump #TrumpProtest pic.twitter.com/G5ASK7U6yu— Sarah McIntyre (@jabberworks) July 13, 2018

An English marketing agency carved "F-ck Trump," in Russian, into a crop circle along Trump's helicopter route to London tomorrow.

Thousands across the UK take part in protests on Donald Trump's first day here. From Cardiff, to London to Scotland, the message was clear - he is not welcome here with his racist, divisive policies#TrumpUKVisit #RegentsPark #BlenheimPalace #Cardiff pic.twitter.com/64rHMuUdQE— Jordon-Lee (@JordonLee) July 12, 2018
