His poor partner...
There were only the two of them on the mountain flying in the euphoric, bitter air, looking down on the hawk's back and the crawling lights of vehicles on the plain below, suspended above ordinary affairs....

I read about this as well. It is so sad, and we had just been talking about him and his partner and the documentary. I think it was quite sudden. I wonder if they will still do the movie they're talking about?

From what I heard on the radio, it was very sudden/unexpected.  He died like a day before his birthday.

According to the Times, his spouse says it was a blood clot in his leg that traveled to his lung.

OK, seriously, I never thought I'd ever have anything good to say about 45 or Mrs. 45, but I do think that yellow gown Mrs. 45 wore to Blenheim Palace was stunning. Just beautiful.

A friend posted part of the London anti-Trump demonstrations taken from her office window just now.

I wish whoever is pouring would dump some hot tea--some very hot tea--right in 45's lap.

How many heads of governments has he insulted? There's Justin Trudeau, and now Theresa May ("she didn't listen"--as if the Prime Minister of Great Britain was a naughty child who didn't do what she was told). I'm pretty sure Emanual Macron is on that list, and I think Angela Merkel is on it, too. And they're our allies.

There is also "Little Rocket Man."

But NEVER Putin. Never the one who controls the only thing T cares about, his money.

I want to see the baby 45 in his diaper, flying over Parliament!  Good crowd, though...

Do you think Trump will talk about this with Putin when they have their date on Monday:

Meanwhile, Trump says the 20-foot-tall angry baby blimp flying in London makes him feel 'unwelcome'.
I didn't even notice the baby has a phone to tweet on until I saw this photo.



But does Donnie even contemplate for one second, why there are mass protests against him in Britain today?
Does he consider even one tiny reason people might dislike him?  No, he never contemplates or considers.

What an embarrassment for the United States to have our friends in Britain protesting against our President.
Thank you for doing so, but it's an absolute disgrace that the need is there.

I saw one woman with a sign that said Love America, Hate Trump.
The first part is hard right now, the second is a no-brainer!

"Trump's visit spurred other activists to create their own political displays. One artist carved "Fuck Trump" into
a crop circle that was reportedly visible on Trump's flight path to British Prime Minister Theresa May's country estate."
The first word was written in the Russian language.
