Donald Trump makes a fool out of himself over Brexit
From Huffington Post
Donald Trump is not getting the warm Scottish welcome he was hoping for.
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee arrived in Scotland on Friday to officially open his new Trump Turnberry golf resort. Protesters greeted him with golf balls emblazoned with Swastikas — a symbol synonymous with Nazi Germany — at the opening of the course.
Trump also faced a backlash after tweeting that people in Scotland were “going wild” following the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
Many Scots are angry at his tweet because most actually voted to remain inside the EU.
All 32 council areas and a total 62 percent of Scots backed the UK to remain in the EU, according to the BBC. It was in contrast to the U.K. as a whole, which voted 52 percent to 48 percent for “leave.”
Dozens of Twitter users branded Trump a “moron,” “weapons-grade plum” and “idiot” — including British pop star Lily Allen, TV presenter Sue Perkins and comedian Peter Serafinowicz.
Sure Donald may personally benefit over Brexit but it isn't going to help the people in Great Britain and Scotland, who actually had a say over it.
Now the voters in GB are having next morning remorse over it:
"Even though I voted to leave, this morning I woke up and I just — the reality did actually hit me," one woman told the news channel ITV News. "If I'd had the opportunity to vote again, it would be to stay."
Guess Brits are low information voters like the Sarah Palin worshippers. Speaking of Sarah Palin I will have my thoughts on her and her attitude towards Brexit on Monday.
