British Queen Elizabeth II welcomed US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump to Windsor Castle on Friday. (July 13th)
Of all the mistakes that President Donald Trump tried to fix on Tuesday after his disastrous press conference in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he made another mistake in his calmer meeting with Queen Elizabeth (19659007) The big news of the day in Washington was Trump's review of Monday's remarks when he seemed to say that he believes Putin's denial more than American intelligence agencies' assessment of US intelligence in the 2016 elections.

"We met with the Queen, who is absolutely a great person is where she's been checking her honor guard for the first time in 70 years, they tell me, "he said.
Who said that to him? Certainly no one in Windsor Castle because it's not true, the queen, 92, is Her Majesty since 1952, at the age of 66 she is the longest reign in British history, but not yet 70 years old.
Second, the queen meets foreign dignitaries almost every week and regularly inspects her honor guard on many Zer It has met twelve seated presidents, including Trump, and pacing in shrill-lined troop-carriers is an integral part of the British royals' patronage.
British Trump critics who spent the Friday mocking Trump for his alleged faux-pas at the meeting (which caused them to ten minutes to wait to turn his back on him) were at the assertion of his unbeliever.
"Total fiction," said royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams.
It was not the only untrue story spread on Tuesday about Trump and the Queen, and Trump was not responsible for everyone.
The Sunday Times in London, another big media publication owned by Trump's media mogul buddy Rupert Murdoch, quoted an anonymous "insider" claiming that Prince Charles and Prince William deliberately dimmed Trump by refusing to meet them to be the queen.
Queen Elizabeth and President Donald Trump have finally met.
That was so outrageous – as it suggested the first and second in the series to throne express political views in violation of the British Constitution – that Buckingham Palace pushed back, denying in a statement that every prince was there should be. Since the Trump meeting was not a state visit – it was more like a courtesy visit – there were never plans to involve other royals.
In fact, when President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama first called the Queen in the palace in April 2009, just months after taking office, Queen Philip's only husband was Prince Philip 97, who has since been out of public life retired.

Speaking of Obama: His name was covered up in another crazy story that was shot on Twitter on Tuesday: The Story of "Brooch Warfare".
Allegedly, the pieces of shoulder jewelry worn by the Queen during the three days that Trump was in the United Kingdom, Trump's, in particular the American state visit brooch, was supposed to wear a vintage bauble made of a small green flower a personal gift from the Obama during her state visit in 2011.
On Thursday, the day President and First Lady Melania Trump came to the country, the queen wore her for an audience with Windsor Castle Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al Azhar.
The queen has many brooches (it's a favorite form of jewelry for her), but this was a natural choice as she perfectly complemented her green-yellow floral dress. Others believed that the brooch she wore when she met Trump, a paisley-shaped diamond doll she had inherited from her mother, who made her famous in 1952 at the funeral of her husband, King George VI Knock on Trump, although it was not clear why it was controversial: The queen has worn this brooch often.
The bottom line is that the queen does not sting in public, either overtly or subtly. It just is not done.
And sometimes a brooch is just a brooch.
Was Queen Elizabeth secretly part of this anti-Trump protest? Some say that their dress choice shows it, especially their brooches. Veuers Nathan Rousseau Smith has the story.
