Beck, while I agree that more respect ought to have been shown to QEII by Mr. Trump, I’m sure that QEII just shrugged it off. After all, she’s been in the “Head of State” business for sixty-plus years, while he’s been in it for less than two years. She, being the diplomat that she is, I am sure that she will forgive him his transgression.
I would hope that Mr. Trump realizes that QEII has gone through a number of UK Prime Ministers; a number of Australian, New Zealand, and Canadian Prime Ministers, and eleven US presidents. She–or perhaps, her position–remains the rock upon which Commonwealth political systems are based, and she’s no slouch, constitutionally and politically. While I am sure that she greeted Mr. Trump politely, and enjoyed tea with him, I am equally sure that she was thinking, “It really is taking longer than we thought.”
Real Dopers know what I mean.
