“Shut up and drink my tea,” a smiling Johnson told them.

The journalists were unsure at first. Presumably, they were worried that laughing along with the man who’s “leveraging hatred and racism” might make them look complicit.

“Put it in your mouths,” Johnson laughed. “Do it. Do it for BoJo.”

Laughing along with the allegedly charming character, the journalists did as they were told.

“YES!” Steve Bannon shouted from a window of the house, “YOU DRANK THE TEA, AND NOW WE OWN YOU, YOU COMMUNIST LIMEY BITCHES!”

The journalists were going to ask Johnson why he was working for Bannon – one of the architects of President Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’.

“Shut up and eat this Jaffa cake,” Johnson purred, as he mushed it into their hungry mouths.

Although to be fair, not everyone accepted the confectionaries:

Stirrer

After drinking the tea, some of the journalists worried that Johnson may have stirred the drinks with his nob. The question isn’t if he’s childish enough to have done such a thing; the question is would it be any more humiliating for the journalists if he had?
