Trump walks in front of the Queen, sparks outrage

Donald Trump and the First Lady are about to have tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

On Roe v. Wade: Trump said he understands why women would be concerned about whether his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, would be the deciding vote on whether to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 45-year-old decision legalizing abortion.

Trump replied: "I think I could have". According to reports, the Queen was seen checking her watch often at while waiting for him.

Spoiler alert: it seems that Trump's White House aides neglected to brief the President on the most important tenets of royal etiquette.

As the Trumps were meeting the queen, the indictment of 12 Russian military officers for hacking the Democratic National Committee was handed down by the USA attorney general.

Trump will not be meeting Queen Elizabeth's eldest son and William's father Prince Charles, the heir to the throne. The indictments are part of the ongoing special counsel probe into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation - a probe regularly denounced by the president. She is not known to show anger in public, and the only times most people have seen her show unbridled glee is when one of her racehorses performs extremely well in a competition.

Prior to his arrival in the UK, Trump scorched her policy towards the European Union divorce in an interview with The Sun newspaper that shocked Britain's political establishment. He told Mr Morgan: 'I get along with him great, yeah. That's also where Richard Nixon met Her Majesty in 1969.

Although there were advance calls in Britain from some quarters to cancel the meeting between the queen and the Trumps, that was never going to happen. Priceless photo w Trump blocking her. And yes, the balloon was even approved by the City of London.

The teatime meeting with the queen lasted less then an hour; afterwards, the Trumps were scheduled to depart for a weekend in Scotland where the half-Scots president (on his mother's side) owns two golf courses.
