Trump Demanding Golden Carriage Ride Is Further Proof He’s Scrooge McDuck
President Donald Trumpis apparently demanding to take a ride in a golden royal carriage when he visits England later this year, because of course he is.
To be fair to Trump, when dignitaries officially visit Britain, its standard for them to take a carriage ride from theHorse Guards Parade to Buckingham Palace.
But, there are many reasons why its a bad notion to do so. President obama, for example, did not take the carriage ride.
Its easy to understand why Trump would want to ride in the carriage, which is super swanky 😛 TAGEND
Its common knowledge Trump is preoccupied with all things gold.
Gold apartment, gold Easter eggs, gold Oval Office draperies, golden showers you name it, Trumpwants it in gold.
But there are legitimate reasons set out above Trump shouldnt demand to take a ride in the golden carriage.
So, back in 2011, Obama did not travel in the official carriage. Instead, he took his highly-protective armored limousine.
The chairmen crazy limousine protects Americas leader from bullets, chemical attacks and even a small bomb.
Thats generally comforting if you care about the safety of the president of the United States.
Safety is especially important because Trumps U.K. visit is very controversial.
Over 1. 8 million people signed a petition calling for Trump to not be granted a formal nation visit to the United Kingdom.
Because of that petition, the British Parliament had to debate the issue, ultimately deciding to repudiate that request.
