Leaked cables from UK ambassador describe Trump as 'inept,' 'insecure,' 'incompetent'

Breaking news! The U.K. ambassador to the United States has eyes! And they’re attached to his brain! Which functions as it should!


Cables sent from the United Kingdom's Ambassador to the United States to the British Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) describe President Donald Trump as “inept,” “insecure” and “incompetent,” a UK government official confirms to CNN. The cables were leaked to and first published by the Daily Mail.

Sir Kim Darroch, the British Ambassador to the US, used secret cables and briefing notes to warn the UK government that Trump's “career could end in disgrace,” and described conflicts within the White House as “knife fights,” according to the Daily Mail.

CNN notes that the leak may have been motivated by a desire to “clear space” for a more pro-Brexit ambassador. But whatever the reason, it’s a bloody humiliation for the wanker-in-chief.

Darroch had been riding high on the success of Trump's trip to the UK in June which largely went off without a hitch. His position with the Trump administration however now looks difficult at best. Though his memos are deeply sensitive given the source, the unflattering depiction of the Trump White House is one that will be recognizable to readers of US media outlets.

Recognizable? Yeah, kind of. Darroch is lucky, though. He can always go home to a nice soothing garbage fire that’s spreading out of control and threatening to turn his country into an ugly, dysfunctional ash heap. That’s a huge step up. I don’t know how to describe what's going on over here. But it’s way worse than anything Brexit could muster, that’s for sure.
