Queen Elizabeth & Donald Trump spoke on the phone about… something

ROYAL ROTA Her Majesty The Queen and President of The United States of America at State Banquet, Buckingham Palace, London, England, UK

Independence Day is almost upon us. It’s the day the Americans celebrate our liberation from an oppressive, out-of-touch colonizer named King George III. Unfortunately, Americans are currently feeling “oppressed” by a faceless virus and I’m sure many people will be partying their asses off this weekend. Ugh. Why can’t everyone celebrate Independence Day like me, by sitting in front of a fan with a cat and watching TV? Anyway, I didn’t actually know this was a thing, but apparently the Queen usually speaks to the American president on or around Independence Day every year? Is that a thing? The Queen is trying to make it sound like a thing:

What’s interesting is that the White House’s version of this phone call was to explain it as “The president wished the Queen a happy birthday, marking 94 extraordinary years.” The Queen’s real birthday was in April, and her fake birthday (Trooping the Colour) was two weeks ago, which she celebrated with her own private little parade at Windsor Castle.

The White House also claimed that Trump and the Queen spoke about the pandemic and they “discussed close cooperation on defeating the virus and reopening global economies. The president and the queen also reaffirmed that the United States and United Kingdom stand together in our special relationship and will emerge from this trying time stronger than ever before.” Yeah, probably not. Trump’s response to the pandemic has been an unmitigated disaster and for that alone, he’s seen his approval rating drop significantly. Meanwhile, the pandemic has shown how unnecessary and out-of-touch the Queen really is. She’s barely done a thing, barely even provided moral support to the nation, and people are already writing the obituaries for her reign.

Anyway, I find it strange that the White House and Windsor Castle have two completely different explanations for the subjects of the phone call. Pretty sure that means that Liz and Bigly were actually talking about Prince Andrew and how Trump managed to fire the US Attorney in charge of the Southern District of NY, the same guy who was pursuing an on-the-record interview with Prince Andrew as part of the SDNY’s far-ranging investigation into Epstein and his accomplices.

    That picture of Trump in the white tie is one of my favorites. The tux isn’t even fitting around his gut. He looks fat and miserable, like a cranky waiter.

      Remember Nancy “…..Obese, they say” LOL
      I love that lady! don’t always agree with her but my goodness, she knows how to handle orange man

    • FicklePickle says:

      Nothing about that tux is fitted properly. The waistcoat isn’t supposed to go lower than the jacket, the jacket sleeves are supposed to let an inch of the shirt sleeves show at the cuff, the coattails are too long for him, the shoulders are weird, the trousers give tailors 80s flashbacks…UGH.

  2. Juls says:

    So Dump did the Queen a favor. What did he get in return?

    • Becks1 says:

      He already got it – his big state visit with all that pomp and circumstance.

    • anon says:

      “In Andrew’s name I would like to show our appreciation for firing that pesky AG Berman. Well done, Mr Trump. Give your pet Barr a big pat on the head.You know I love good dogs!”

      “No problem, Betty, can I call you Betty? Now, can you do me another favour? Can I buy Scotland?…”

  3. Marjorie says:

    My favorite pic is the one where they left the doggie dish on the floor next to Bigly.

  4. Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

    What a great accomplishment. The White House made a phone call to a person who has nothing to do with setting economic policy, enacting trade deals or reopening borders. They wished her a belated happy birthday and then congratulated themselves for making a single phone call that was not a complete international embarrassment.

    The Queen’s version: Congratulated them on their “Independence” during a global pandemic and they missed the joke/insult.

    • Livvers says:

      After hearing how he treated Angela Merkel and Theresa May on phone calls, I am convinced he said something insultingly patronizing to the queen. That’s his version of ‘on his best behaviour.’ He probably told her she looks good for her age, or complimented her for ‘being so sharp, not suffering from dementia like a lot of old people.’

      • Cynthia says:

        You’re giving the queen too much credit here. I bet she would take these as compliments 🙁

  5. Livvers says:

    I think the discrepancy about what the call covered means the queen had a script from Boris she was meant to get through (the British call description), but Trump got distracted and decided to wish her Happy Birthday and go on and on about how old she is (a generous description of the actual call transcript in case a source in the WH leaks details about it).

  6. Aurora says:

    Hopefully Harry’s green card papers don’t get “lost”.

  7. ABritGuest says:

    Britain is desperate for a trade deal with the US seeing as it looks unlikely that Britain will have a trade deal with the EU by January. She probably will be kissing Trump’s (or hopefully a new president’s) ass a lot this year.

  8. Tour malinn says:

    Of course they spoke about Epstein and Andrew. They have nothing else in common to talk about.

  9. Prairiegirl says:

    So she’s called four leaders of the Five Eyes plus the French, then?

  10. aquarius64 says:

    Some of the British tabloids alleged Berman was fired because of the Epstein case. If the queen and Trump talked about Andrew that led to a call to DOJ that’s wrong.

  11. Betsy says:

    Given Carl Bernstein’s reporting, I wonder just how many different ways he insulted her. I know love for her isnt riding high on this website right now, but I’m not pleased with the varying ways in which he’s insulted our allies, usually women.

    But given the pedophile issue – Trump’s own and her son – perhaps it was about that. Though I think that would be a private, non-noted call.

  12. Bella DuPont says:

    So glad to see the leaders of the UKKK and AmeriKKKa speaKKKing. It would be interesting to know if the mentioned Black Lives Matter at all. 🧐

  13. Kat says:

    I wonder if they spoke about China and what the queen’s opinion is on the HUAWEI stuff in Britain . Her prime minister has gone back and forth a bit.

  14. Original Jenns says:

    One, Trump totally brought up Andrew, if only to say he’s innocent and how terribly he’s been treated and he’s doing everything he can to fix it. That’s the kind of garbage he’d brag about to Petty Liz.

    Two, ” I find it strange that the White House and Windsor Castle have two completely different explanations for the subjects of the phone call.” I quote this just to say I read it as White House and WHIITE CASTLE, and I thought it was so funny, until i realized my brain filled in something else. I still think it works.

  15. L4frimaire says:

    They made this post seem like it was a good thing the Queen spoke to Trump. Was this supposed to reassure people or appeal to whom exactly? Trump is acting like he’s determined to completely wreck the republic and burn the White House on the way out. I just don’t get the point of this, I really don’t.

    • FicklePickle says:

      Well, that does seem to be his MO with his businesses. Run them into the ground repeatedly while siphoning off as much money as he can to sock away for himself and his family…he’s just not great at plausible deniability and cover-ups.

      Oh, God, THAT’S what he is! A somewhat competent corporate raider!

  16. Lowrider says:

    Betty Windsor and her staff are just FILTHY! Just disgusting people all around.

  17. MissMarierose says:

    That call was probably just her wishing him and all Americans a Happy Independence Day. Then the next 15 minutes were just Trump talking about himself and lying his ass off about how “great” he is and how “well” he’s doing.
