Theresa May passed her comments at the Jordan Museum in Amman, Jordan. She was standing up, but may as well have been lying on the floor begging for Donald Trump to walk all over her [Image: Joe Giddens/PA].

Did you ever think you’d see the day a UK Prime Minister would admit the American President can insult us to his heart’s content, and we’ll still support him blindly?

That is what Theresa May did in her press conference today. It was sickening.

Asked what she thinks about President Trump spreading hate speech on Twitter, and what she would do about it, Mrs May spoke at length about Britain First – despite not having been asked for her opinion of that organisation. We know it is “hateful”.

Eventually she came to the point, saying she works together with the US, she is not afraid to say when they have got something wrong, and retweeting Britain First was wrong.

Brilliant! So what was she going to do about it? Nothing.

Asked if it is acceptable that Trump tweeted that Mrs May should stay out of his business, she evaded, saying she wants the UK-US relationship to continue because it is “good for the world”.

It’s not proving very good for the UK, though, is it?

She admitted that Trump’s state visit would still go ahead; the invitation has been extended and accepted.

There was more evasion when she was asked if she would sack a minister who retweeted a far-right group’s propaganda – she said she had “absolute confidence ” that none of her ministers would do that. Even Boris Johnson?

She wouldn’t say how she felt when she saw Trump’s retweets. She said: “Just to be clear, I’m not a prolific tweeter myself, as you may have seen, and that means I don’t spend all my time looking at other people’s tweets. But when I feel that there should be a response, I give it. And I have given it to President Trump’s tweets.”

Has she even seen the offending messages? Her responses suggest not.

And what she did say was so diffident, she might as well have lain supine on the floor and begged Mr Trump to come and walk all over her.

Look at her comments about the UK’s relationship with the United States:

“It’s an enduring relationship that is there because it is in both our national interests for that relationship to be there. And as prime minister I’m clear that-that-that relationship with the United States to continue. I think it is in the interests, both of the United Kingdom and of the United States and of the wider world.”

Waffle.

Trump can be as racist as he likes. He can spout know-nothing nonsense about UK affairs all he likes.

The UK government will do nothing about it because our prime minister is so weak, she might as well be his kitten.

A kitten that has been thoroughly de-fanged and de-clawed, of course.

She is utterly unfit to govern the United Kingdom and should be packed off to the states to be Trump’s serving-maid – if he can be bothered with her.
