The White House on Tuesday announced President Donald Trump and the First Lady had accepted an invitation to meet with Queen Elizabeth II in early June, for his first official State Visit.


As usual, the White House's announcement contained a "Royal Mistake," as People magazine noted. But the really royal mistake came hours later, early Wednesday morning, when the President of the United States accused British Intelligence of spying on him.

Citing far right wing conspiracy theorist Larry Johnson, who has accused former First Lady Michelle Obama of making a racist slur against white people, and former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry of rape via doctored audio, President Trump tweeted a supposed quote from One America News (OANN), a right wing media outlet more extreme than even Fox News.
