After some of the comments London Mayor Sadiq Khan made in the aftermath of the most recent terror attack in his city, we can all agree he’s gone off the deep end.
Well, we have one more comment to add to the list.
Khan is calling on the British government to cancel a state visit from President Trump. All because the President called out the mayor!
“I don’t think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for,” Khan said in an interview.
“When you have a special relationship it is no different from when you have got a close mate. You stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they are wrong. There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.”
Yeah, well, some of the stuff Khan said was wrong. And Trump called him out on it.
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

Trump also tweeted this. But Khan is acting like everyone should ignore this…
Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!

Huh? Sounds like Trump is doing just what Khan described earlier…
Many are claiming that the President’s “no reason to be alarmed” tweet took Khan’s comments out of context and that the mayor was referring to the increased amount of police that would be patrolling the streets.
Khan’s spokesperson said Sunday that he wouldn’t respond to Trump’s tweet, saying he had “more important things to do.”
“He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump’s ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police — including armed officers — on the streets,” the spokesperson said.
This may be true. But Khan also said that he still believes London is one of the safest cities in the world.
Also, after three terror attacks so close together, and after just having the military patrol the streets, why would anyone be alarmed by the extra security?
We’re just saying, something isn’t adding up.
This isn’t the first time Khan has called on the government to cancel Trump.
He wasn’t a fan of Trump’s executive order barring refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S., even calling the order “cruel”.
And he felt like that was enough of a reason for Trump to be denied a state visit.
This guy needs to either get his head on straight or the people of London will get rid of him in the voting booths.
