News Item:  London suffers a terrorist attack.  Trump twists words.  The UK is also
holding a general election on June 8th.

"Enough is enough" said Britain's leader.

Her police cuts when Home Secretary are partly responsible.  "She should resign,"
said her opponent the Labor Leader.

Within 8 minutes of the call to the police the terrorists were dead.  Some Londoners
also fought them off pelting them with chairs and bottles.

The Muslim Mayor of London asked the public not to be alarmed when they notice an
increased police presence.

Hillary Clinton praised the mayor and the emergency services as did the Acting US
Ambassador in London.

Donald Trump's take relied on half-truth.  He tweeted, London Mayor says not to be
alarmed when seven people are dead ...

Out of context and not what the Mayor meant but that's trademark Trump.

Numerous tweeters castigated Trump.

Undeterred he doubled down blaming mainstream media.  His antennae work about
as well as those on Grandpa's old TV.

Trump continued to use the incident to push his travel ban for Muslims now before
the Supreme court.

A president without grace is like a cat, without whiskers -- unaware of the limits of his
forward path ... in trouble!
