President Donald Trump launched his official state visit to the U.K. Monday.

Although he was greeted warmly by the older Royals and is expected to dine in Buckingham Palace tonight with his family, Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, formerly an American actress, appears to be avoiding the President.

Ahead of his visit, the president insulted Markle, saying that he hadn’t realized she was “nasty.” During the campaign, Markle had said she’d move to Canada if Trump got elected.

He also insulted London’s Mayor, Saddiq Khan. The President has also signaled he approves of Brexit, a vote that has largely been seen as the reason for the political defeat of former Prime Minister Theresa May.

On Monday, CNN chronicled all the public figures Trump managed to insult ahead of the official visit, with a penchant for describing them as “nasty.”

“And in true Trump fashion and before he even touched down the president took jabs at everyone from the London Mayor to Meghan Markle, the former American actress who married Prince Harry last year during the 2016 presidential campaign. The Duchess vowed to move to Canada if trump were elected,” Brooke Baldwin observed. “And in response Trump told a British paper over the weekend — quoting him here, “‘I didn’t know she was nasty.”

On Monday, The Washington Post reported that White House officials are frustrated with chief of staff Mark Meadows, over his management style and his failure to communicate vital information to both the public and his colleagues.

And the frustration reportedly goes deeper than his contradictory claim over the weekend that the administration will not control the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our previous letter also noted that the campaign’s use of the work constituted an implied and false endorsement of Mr. Trump. It also noted Mr. Collin’s express and unequivocal statement that he wants no affiliation whatsoever with The President or the Trump campaign."

Nicolle Wallace takes down conservative Peggy Noonan’s anti-Kamala Harris hit-piece: ‘You don’t know jack-bleep’

Conservative Peggy Noonan issued a sexist hit-piece on Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend that called the historic vice presidential nominee "frivolous."

"She's facing the kind of criticism that's going to sound familiar to a lot of women," said MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace. "In a column in the Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan writes this: 'For her part, vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris is -- when on the trail -- giddy. She's dancing with drum lines and beginning rallies with 'what's up, Florida!' She's throwing her head back, and laughing a loud laugh, especially when whether nobody said anything funny. She's the younger candidate going for the younger vote and happy warrior vibe but coming across as insubstantial, frivolous."
