Multifarious flop-follower Jacob Rees-Mogg has disowned Donald Trump because of the Republican Presidential candidate’s potty-mouthed outpourings.

Presumably the billionaire wasn’t genteel enough for the Member of Parliament representing the century-before-last.

Some, like John Crace (whose article on the subject is excerpted below) say this should come as a relief to the loudmouthed moneybag, because of Mr Rees-Mogg’s penchant for championing clinkers.

But then, it seems Mr Trump doesn’t need anybody’s help to make a fool of himself.

The Donald Trump groping tape did have one immediate effect in the UK. It caused MPs Iain Duncan Smith, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Michael Fabricant to start backtracking on their support for the Republican presidential hopeful.

One might ask what it was about Trump’s racism, tax avoidance and proven mendacity the three Tory MPs had previously found so irresistible, but better that one sinner repenteth etc …

Trump might secretly be relieved that Rees-Mogg has dropped out; in the Conservative leadership election, the Somerset MP managed to back the loser time after time.

First he backed Boris Johnson. When he dropped out, he switched to Michael Gove. When the Tories decided Gove’s future lay in writing newspaper columns, Rees-Mogg bet the house on the completely useless Andrea Leadsom.

Mind you, Trump seems more than capable of losing the election on his own. He recently told a rally in Florida to make sure they voted for him on 28 November. The election is on 8 November.
