Boris Johnson Was Mistaken for Donald Trump in New York

By Gary Cutlack on at

London mayor Boris Johnson has said that he's "genuinely worried" about what might happen to America, the rest of the world and even our part of the galaxy should Trump wangle his way into the US presidency, but that's not the worst of it.

Johnson says he's been mistaken for Trump, telling ITV’s The Agenda programme that: "I am genuinely worried that he could become president... I was in New York and some photographers were trying to take a picture of me and a girl walked down the pavement towards me and she stopped and said, 'Gee, is that Trump?' It was one of the worst moments."

Which makes it sound like Boris is only worried about Trump becoming president because it would mildly inconvenience his UK lookalike, and not for any of the billions of other reasons why giving Trump an army might be a bad idea. [RT]
