Boris Johnson Has A History Of Insulting US Politicians

The former mayor previously expressed admiration for the U.S. in numerous instances, but has also not missed a chance to slam the country’s notable politicians.

Britain’s new foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, is known for his controversial comments for politicians. But apparently, it is not only the politicians of the United Kingdom he has a beef with.

President Obama who had previously appealed to the U.K. to remain part of the European Union, has come under fire from Johnson, who called him “hypocritical”. Johnson said the United States never allows itself to be governed by any other international organization, and thus questioned why the president of the U.S. urged the U.K. to remain under the pressure of EU.

In other instances, commenting on Donald Trump, Johnson claimed he was “ignorant.” He also added that he would love to take him around London, but did not want to unnecessarily expose Londoners to the risk of meeting the orange-faced business mogul. He has also stated that he doesn’t want to visit New York due to the risk of bumping into Trump.

“It is time to think of supporting Hillary, not because we necessarily want her for herself but because we want Bill in the role of first husband, said Johnson in a column for the Telegraph, writing about Hilary Clinton. “And if Bill can deal with Hillary, he can surely deal with any global crisis.”

“How could I possibly emit the merest peep of support for a woman who seems to have acted out the role of first lady, from 1993 to 2000, like a mixture between Cherie Blair and Lady Macbeth, stamping her heel, bawling out subordinates and Frisbee-ing ashtrays at her erring husband?” he also wrote.
