Farage The Brown Nose Cowboy

When a family trying to cross the Channel in an inflatable boat earlier this week drowned after it capsized near the French coast, pundits were out in force, trying their best to concentrate on people traffickers and not blaming the poor souls who had just lost their lives. But one foghorn of hatred was missing: there was no sign of Brexit Party Oberscheissenf├╝hrer Nigel “Thirsty” Farage. Had he overslept after a long session?

We did not have to wait long to find out. Although there are still restrictions on entering the USA due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Nige has managed to not just enter the country, but make his way to Arizona, where Combover Crybaby Donald Trump was holding another of his no-mask potential superspreader rallies, although this one was out in the open, reducing the virus transmission risk. Yes, Mr Thirsty was there too.

Not only was he there, he gave a speech. And in the competition to kiss arse, he out-brown nosed Piers Morgan by a country mile. “I’ve come to America, to bring the Brexit message, that you can beat the establishment [like Trump isn’t the establishment] … that is what Donald Trump did. He beat the pollsters, he beat the media, he beat all the predictions, and here’s the worst bit, they’ve never forgiven him for it”. There was more.

Rather a lot more. “They have spent four years trying to delegitimise him. Four years of the Russia hoax [wasn’t a hoax], four years of a false impeachment [not false]. Most human beings, under that barrage, would have given up. This is … the most resilient, the bravest person I have ever met in my life”. Brutus Moriatus, this man is a bit of a crawler.

Could it get worse? Don’t ask. “When you vote next week, you are not just voting for who the President of the United States of America is, vital though that question may be, you are voting for the leader of the free world”. Bloody hell, is Angela Merkel on the ballot?

It got yet worse. “You are voting for the only current leader in the free world who has got the guts to stand up and fight [how many deferments did Trump get to avoid serving his country?] for the nation state [total crap], to fight for patriotism, to fight against globalism [anti-Semitic dog whistle there]. You’ll be voting for the only leader in the western world with the real courage to stand up to the Chinese Communist Party”.

And that really is weapons grade bullpucky. When did Trump raise a finger about the treatment of Uighur Muslims? When did he say boo about Hong Kong? When did he even mention that China is a totalitarian state, as in there is none of that freedom? He didn’t.

And then it was barrel scraping time. “You’ll be voting for decency [sex pest, bully, psychopath, probably a crook], plain speaking [ranting and rambling]. and a man who in four years hasn’t just cut your taxes [he hasn’t cut most citizens’ taxes at all], hasn’t just improved the economy [seen the markets in the last 24 hours? No, thought not]”.

All that brown nosing, and d’you know what? The worst part of it is that, whatever the outcome of the Presidential Election, Trump won’t give a damn about him. Farage is just being used, like the whole of the GOP is being used right now.

Maybe he got some maximum strength mouthwash out of the deal. He’ll need it.

The orange racist's record surely can't be as bad as you say. Otherwise, what would Frommage find to admire about him?

To paraphrase the Brexiteers......."if you like it so much, why don't you fuck off there!"

Mr Thirsty will have to go into isolation after his return from the US of A.

I trust all readers will dutifully report any breach on his part to Mr Plod.

It's a wonder he didn't have his head so far up his arse, that would end up being mistaken for a coloured immigrant he despises.

We used to mock Blair for being a grovelling poodle to George Bush, but Farage surpasses him by pushing grovelling sycophancy to the extreme!

A sad and pathetic man.

At least Blair could do more in 45 seconds than Farage, Trump and Johnson all put together
