Fox News host Sean Hannity took to the streets of London on Friday to interview British citizens protesting President Donald Trump, who was in the city meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II.
Hannity asked the protesters to list specific reasons why they were protesting Trump, a question that exposed the absurdity of the protests — and as Hannity said: "You can't make this stuff up."
What did the protesters say?
- "It's been hot this summer for a reason, you know what I mean? ... I think [Trump] is promoting climate change."
- "I'm here for all the hate Trump exudes. Yep."
- [I'm here] to protest against the Trump administration and everything it stands for." When Hannity asked this woman for specifics, she said: "I'm...I'm OK not being interviewed."
- "I think a lot British people are more intelligent than the Americans are when it comes to voting."
- "I think [Trump] represents everything that's toxic about western culture and western history."
- "I don't like his policies." When Hannity asked for specific, this man said: "All of them."
Some of the most common answers Hannity received were that Trump is a "racist," "homophobe," and "xenophobe." Others alleged that he has committed human rights abuses. However, none of the protesters were able to provide Hannity with a specific Trump-implemented policy they took issue or disagreed with.
More about the protests
The protest, which featured the infamous "baby Trump" balloon, received widespread attention in the mainstream media. CNN reported that organizers estimated 250,000 people turned out for the protests. However, other reports show the crowd was much smaller.
Meanwhile, thousands more are protesting in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Saturday. Law enforcement dealt with a tense security situation earlier in the day when a glider breached a no-fly zone over the area where Trump is staying.
More from The State:
The glider carried a banner reading "Trump: Well Below Par" over Trump's Turnberry golf resort in western Scotland on Friday night to protest his environmental and immigration policies. Greenpeace, in a statement, claimed the protest forced the president to take cover, saying "as the glider appears overhead the president can be seen making for the entrance breaking into a trot."
The environmental group said it had informed police about the stunt 10 minutes before the glider arrived.
Authorities said the group committed a criminal offense, the State reported.
