Britain’s ambassador to the U.S. is out of a job. Sir Kim Darroch has resigned, saying he couldn’t do his job after those diplomatic cables surfaced, in which he called President Trump “inept” and “incompetent.” Before the resignation was announced, Trump called Darroch a “very stupid guy” and a “pompous fool” and said the White House would no longer deal with him. Other diplomats told the New York Times it “could have been any of us” who wrote those cables. NY TIMES
Special relationship, indeed.
