President Donald Trump recently retweeted anti-Muslim videos that went above and beyond the usual crap he retweets. We know he’s racist, xenophobic, and a bigot; however, the videos he retweeted were beyond that. They were abhorrent.

The videos were originally tweeted by Jayda Fransen who is the deputy leader of Britain First, which is an organization that is basically the British version of Trump’s “Make America Great Again.”

When Trump retweeted those videos, countless numbers of people worldwide criticized the president for doing something so blatantly racist. Among those who criticized the president was Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May. In a statement released by May she said:

‘It is wrong for the president to have done this.’

After that, Trump took to Twitter and told May to mind her own beeswax, basically.

[email protected]_May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!’

No, we are not doing “just fine.” Please, help us Prime Minister May.

After his tweet, May actually spoke to reporters during her trip to Amman, Jordan and reaffirmed her criticism of Trump’s actions. She said:

‘The fact that we work together does not mean we’re afraid to say when we think the United States have got it wrong and to be very clear with them. I’m very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do.’

BOOM.

With a state visit in the works for Trump to visit the U.K., May was also asked if that invitation was still open. She responded:

‘An invitation for a state visit has been extended and has been accepted. We have yet to set a date.’

Trump won’t get it. However, a good friend or ally, such as the U.K., will tell you when you’ve made a wrong move. It’s like the friend who actually confirms your butt does look big in your new pair of jeans. A good friend doesn’t let you get away with horrible transgressions, such as retweeting horrible, racist videos that spread hate and divisiveness throughout the nation and the world.
