She’ll be gone before the end of the year but in the meantime, Theresa May is covering herself in: Denial.

Theresa May has reshuffled her cabinet, presumably in a bid to make us think she is serious about running a government after her disastrous performance in the general election.

The full list of cabinet appointments is here if you really want to look, but only two names seem important at the moment.

The first is Tory backstabber-in-chief Michael Gove, who returns as Environment Secretary. Mrs May was quizzed on this choice by Beth Rigby for Sky News, and you can tell from the tone of the questioning that the reporter had already decided this was a prime minister who was hanging on by her fingernails:

The other is Jeremy Hunt, returning like a contagious illness to the Department of Health in what many have already taken as a signal that, if she achieves nothing else, Theresa May wants to be remembered as the PM who killed the National Health Service and permanently harmed the well-being of the nation.

Reporters are now referring to Mr Hunt openly by his unflattering nickname. If you are offended by strong language, please do not play the following clips:

Twitter has responded to the appointment in its usual charitable way:

In other news, US President Donald Trump has told Theresa May in a phone call he does not want to go ahead with a state visit to Britain until the British public supports him coming.

The British public has responded in typically British fashion. This is just one example:

In fairness, it seems Mr Trump should be used to this kind of language as it appears to have been used about him, already, by at least one prominent US citizen:

Already, just days after the general election, the future is looking brighter…

… although it appears to be brighter orange.
