Donald Trump won’t be able to travel to Scotland for Joe Biden’s inauguration

President Donald J. Trump departs the White House

My initial dream was that Donald Trump would go to Mar-a-Lago for Christmas and simply never return to the White House. Like, he would just sit in Florida, in his diaper, for a month, pouting and rage-tweeting and being phased out of the government. But Trump returned to the White House after Christmas and he’s been doing… all of that. Rage-tweeting, pouting, committing election fraud, trying to blackmail government officials and living in a state of delusion. Today’s election certification in the Senate is very important for many reasons. One of those reasons? I suspect that after today’s certification, Trump will actually start making a plan for where he’ll go for Joe Biden’s inauguration. Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon has already said that Baby Fists isn’t welcome at his own golf course:

Donald Trump will not be allowed to visit Scotland to play golf during Joe Biden’s inauguration, Nicola Sturgeon has said. The US president, who was overwhelmingly defeated in November’s election, is reportedly considering travelling to his Turnberry golf resort to avoid Mr Biden being sworn into office. But Scotland’s first minister stressed it is illegal to travel in or out of the country without a valid reason and said: “Coming to play golf is not what I would consider to be an essential purpose.”

The White House has repeatedly refused to say what the outgoing president will do when Mr Biden is inaugurated on 20 January, prompting speculation about whether Mr Trump will attend the ceremony. But Prestwick Airport has been told to expect the arrival of a US military Boeing 757 aircraft previously used by Mr Trump on 19 January, according to the Sunday Post.

Asked about speculation that Mr Trump could travel to Scotland in order to avoid the inauguration, Ms Sturgeon said: “I have no idea what Donald Trump’s travel plans are, you’ll be glad to know. I hope and expect that – as everybody expects, not everybody necessarily will hope – that the travel plan immediately that he has is to exit the White House. But beyond that I don’t know. We are not allowing people to come in to Scotland without an essential purpose right now and that would apply to him, just as it applies to anybody else. Coming to play golf is not what I would consider to be an essential purpose.”

Heheheh. Sturgeon was responding to questions about a report which appeared in a Scottish newspaper, which is that people in Scotland were being told to prepare for Trump’s arrival around January 19th. The thing is, his Scottish golf courses have been shut down during the pandemic, and Scotland just announced even stricter new lockdown measures, which will be in effect for months probably. So, anyway, some industrious reporters contacted the White House to see if Trump really wanted to run away to Scotland to avoid Biden’s inauguration. The response:

“Anonymous sources who claim to know what the President is or is not considering have no idea. When President Trump has an announcement about his plans for Jan. 20 he will let you know,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a written statement. The White House followed up with a second statement, attributed to press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, that the reports of a Trump trip to Turnberry were “not accurate. President Trump has no plans to travel to Scotland.”

Yeah… a denial like that means only one thing: Trump HAS talked about going to Scotland and there probably were some plans being made. But I think in the end, he probably wouldn’t have gone to Scotland. No, he’ll want to go somewhere to soothe his little loser crybaby ego. He’ll go to Florida or maybe his New Jersey golf course. That’s my guess.

    I mean, it’s not Sturgeons decision, as much as I’ve enjoyed her rather blunt statement. It’s up to Westminster to make decisions who can cross the border afaik and I don’t see Patel or Johnson interfering.

    Once he is in Scotland there is not much she can do either, as he will retain diplomatic immunity.

    It’s a fun story though.

    • Diana says:

      I agree, Pilot.

      But, for a quick minute I will fantasize about Trump *and* Melania arriving at Prestwick Airport on 19 January and being carted off to jail.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Wouldn’t his diplomatic immunity end at 12 noon on the 20th, though? At that point he’ll just be a regular U.S. citizen.

  2. M says:

    I’m sure he’s planning to travel in the near future, but it’ll be to somewhere the US doesn’t have an extradition agreement in place. He will run like the coward he is when the time comes.

  3. Abby says:

    the caption made me think for a sec the inauguration was going to be held in Scotland,hehehe

  4. booboocita says:

    I’m developing a girl crush on Nicola Sturgeon. From her public scolding of Cain and Unable for the Scotland leg of the Choo-Choo Train tour, to the blunt denial of entrance to Giant Orange Crybaby, my girlfriend is KILLING it. She has zero Fs to give and she’s determined to protect her country during the pandemic. Yaaaaas, kween. Slay …

  5. Sayrah says:

    Don’t care where he’ll be as long as he gets out of our house.

  6. LightPurple says:

    My understanding is that the request for the plane to land at Prestwick. has been denied.

    • Christina says:

      With that and the Mar A Lago neighbors making sure that he legally can’t stay there longer than two weeks, the only big Trump properties left are New York and New Jersey, lol.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      He could go to his property in Ireland thou.

      I grew up not far from Prestwick and have been to Turnberry (before he bought it) – its a beautiful area and the hotel is stunning. I hope that he is forced to sell it.

  7. Mac says:

    Apparently troops are already on the ground “preparing the site.” This is just another Trump grift to overcharge the US government for hotel rooms at his failing golf resort. He has no plans to go to Scotland.

  8. Riley says:

    Scotland is my second home – I lived in Glasgow for grad school. I’m about as Scottish as Hilaria Baldwin is Spanish, but I do hold a special place in my heart for it. That being said, Donald – STAY THE EFF AWAY FROM SCOTLAND! I definitely don’t want him in the US either, but if he stays in Florida that’s good enough for me, no need to taint the rest of the US or Scotland with your orange stink.

  9. Jaded says:

    He can’t stay at Mar-a-Lago for more than 7 days due to the 2 agreements he signed when it was turned into a member’s only club and a historically designated building. Because Don The Con is not the owner anymore, he has to abide by the agreement which states that members cannot stay more than 21 days in 7 day increments, nor can he turn it into a hotel. His Palm Beach neighbours are already up in arms about him breaking the rules (no surprise there…) and have legal counsel lined up to fight the righteous fight with him. He’s going to be treated like a pariah everywhere he tries to go unless it’s a red state.

  10. Trake says:

    Well, I’ve noticed the Trumps are holding hands much more lately so I guess Trump won’t be led by his mushroomy-chodish dick to golf club/strip club porn star circuit. Melania must have read the riot act.
    Anyway, as far as Scotland, Trump won’t go. Besides, they have a lot of work to do finding a primary home post White House since potential neighbors anywhere in the world will revolt.

    • Oh-Dear says:

      I am kicking myself for perpetuating a conspiracy theory but….if there is a fake Melania, that looks like her in this pic. Her mouth sits differently and her cheeks are wider. Plus, is Melania known for big puffy coats?

      • CatJ says:

        Yes, this is the Faux Melon-ya. She was also on the trip for the rally in Georgia.

      • Christina says:

        @Catj, I THOUGHT she was too short and that it had to be faux-lania! She also smiled too much in the pics 😂

      • SomeChick says:

        That is totes Fauxlania. Face is all wrong, nose is less pointy, and she’s smiling.

    • Lady D says:

      It’s that actually genuine smile that give Fauxlina away every time.

  11. SomeChick says:

    Seems like it might be a bit cold for golfing in NJ at the moment. So perhaps a week in Florida, then either move on, or dig in and attempt to just stay there anyway, despite the rules.

    I’ve long suspected that he’d have no part of anyone else’s inaguration. Loser.
