Have you heard about the British Ambassador to the U.S. yet? His name is Kim Darroch, and he created a huge controversy. In his work with the U.S., he came to some unfavorable feelings for President Trump. That’s actually allowed. What isn’t ok is that he let these feelings turn into bias when he advised the rest of the British government.
Now that his bias has been leaked, he feels the need to resign. After the leak, President Trump completely refused to continue working with Darroch, insisting that he will only entertain ambassadors who are capable of objectively working together with our country. It’s a pretty reasonable statement.
Here’s the problem. Darroch’s anti-Trump-ness did not make him a rogue with the British government. Even after the leak, Theresa May and her entire cabinet unanimously stood in support of Darroch. You see, they don’t care that he’s biased. In fact, they welcome it, because his bias helps him fit in with the rest of the British government.
That’s the deeper problem here. Whoever replaces Darroch is unlikely to be any better. The entire United Kingdom is suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, and it’s going to hurt their international standing. If you think what you just read is bad, watch the video. This runs deeper than you think.
