#1 boasted that 'America is back'.

Back to Obama insulting England to set the tone for the 'alliance'.

I guess his 'diplomats' delivered the rebuke; maybe Joe didn't know?

#3 He was clueless.

The US President used his diplomats to express 'great concern' over the conflict and 'strongly urged' Britain to 'stay cool' and reach an agreement, even if that meant making 'unpopular compromises'.

But the US President has ordered his officials to issue a rare diplomatic rebuke to the British Government for its continued opposition to checks at Northern Irish ports.

Yael Lempert, charge d'affaires at the US Embassy in London, told Brexit Minister Lord Frost the UK's stance was imperilling the peace process. She had been ordered to issue the diplomatic rebuke, known as a demarche, a step rarely taken between allies, The Times said.

They are often issued alongside a summons for the country's ambassador to attend the Foreign Office.

Shades of returning the Churchill bust.

#4 The Presidium at Kalorama doesn’t like the UK. The Brits in Kenya were mean to their forebears. Plus they are just racist.

#5 Good grief! Is there anyone that this incompetent is not willing to alienate?

What possible interest does the US have in northern Ireland? Even Irish-Americans like me don't care anymore.

#7 "So... Boris! I caught the highlights when Sampras beat you. Agassi with you, wasn't it? Say, are you here as part of the Olympic committee? Where is this again?"
