Sir Kim Darroch, the UK ambassador to the US who was forced to announce his resignation after calling President Donald Trump “incompetent,” has been made a Lord by former Prime Minister Theresa May.

May on Tuesday released her resignation honors list, a tradition in British politics where an outgoing prime minister grants honors such as knighthoods and peerages (which grant the title of Lord) to people of their choosing.

The list included Darroch, who will be given a life peerage, granting him permanent membership in the UK House of Lords and the title of Lord.

Darroch became Britain’s ambassador to the US in 2016, under President Barack Obama. He continued to serve after Trump’s election but announced his resignation in July after a leak of his internal guidance to the British government provoked the president’s fury.

For those who may have forgotten what Darroch said in his memos that pissed Trump off so much let us return to my post from July 7th:

  • Describes bitter conflicts within Trump’s White House – verified by his own sources – as ‘knife fights’;
  • Warns that Trump could have been indebted to ‘dodgy Russians’;
  • Claims the President’s economic policies could wreck the world trade system;
  • Says the scandal-hit Presidency could ‘crash and burn’ and that ‘we could be at the beginning of a downward spiral… that leads to disgrace and downfall’;
  • Voices fears that Trump could still attack Iran.
  • In one of the most sensitive documents, Sir Kim writes: ‘We don’t really believe this Administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept.’

He also says that he doesn’t think Trump’s White House will ‘ever look competent’.

Yep, sounds pretty accurate to me. 

I appreciate the fact that it was Theresa May who tried so very hard to find a way to somehow work with Trump who wanted Darroch honored in this way. 

Clearly she knows he was only doing his job and describing exactly what he experienced in the most factual way possible.

    Democratic Sen. Gary Peters requests Senate investigation into Trump’s Scottish airport deal

    On Tuesday, three different committees in the House announced that they were looking into why the U.S. Air Force had been rerouting planes to a nonmilitary airport in Scotland, with crews staying overnight at Donald Trump’s Turnberry golf resort. That evening, Sen. Gary Peters—the ranking Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee—requested that the House not go it alone this time, and that the Senate also begin a formal investigation. …..

    My guess is trump either high tailed it out of NYC in a helicopter or was hiding in a closet. We know for sure he “wasn’t down there helping with his men” because there was nothing in it for him. And how could he witness Muslims dancing in the streets in NJ, if he was down there helping . DISGUSTING and an insult to all those who actually were down there helping.
