Great Britain, you may have heard, has got a problem on its hands.
While Britain’s message is undoubtedly clear — that the EU is, in fact, not its cup of tea — on the same side of the pond, presumptive Republican presidential nominee and at-large blowhard Donald Trump tweeted a perplexing one:
Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2016
The Donald seems utterly confused, since Scotland voted 62% to 38% to remain in the European Union. But what would a presidential nominee know about foreign affairs, amirite?
Twitter came to correct him with a quickness:
@realDonaldTrump Scotland voted IN you moron— lily (@lilyallen) June 24, 2016
@realdonaldtrump Scotland voted Remain, you weapons-grade plum.— Sue Perkins (@sueperkins) June 24, 2016
@realDonaldTrump SCOTLAND VOTED TO STAY, YOU WITLESS FUCKING COCKSPLAT!— Tim Footman (@CulturalSnow) June 24, 2016
It’s the cherry atop one of the most ill-timed foreign trips a presidential nominee has ever taken in American history, which doesn’t even begin to explain the lunacy of why Trump’s even out there in the first place: a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a golf course he built that’s reported to have lost millions.
