Man who endorsed ‘Trump University’ endorses Boris Johnson
Boris Johnson enjoys the support of some interesting characters. He’s recently won the backing of the man who promoted ‘Trump University’ – an establishment that was to education what Donald Trump is to presidenting.
Trump, Trump it up
President Trump is known for throwing his weight behind many infamous ventures. In the past he’s supported:
- Trump Titanic.
- Trump Asbestos.
- Trump Eldorado.
Speaking about the endorsement, Johnson said:
I think it’s fan-fibbling-tastic, actually. People will look at the Trump presidency and be assured that they’ll get more of the same from me.
Trump himself said:
Boris is going to make a great tsar – truly.
When it was explained that ‘Boris’ just had a somewhat Russian-sounding name, Trump added:
Of course, an endorsement from Trump doesn’t necessarily mean a candidate would be a disastrous PM. It does mean that 99.9% of the time, obviously – especially when a politician has a political record as woeful as Johnson’s.
In ordinary circumstances, the approval of such an unfavourable figure might have worked against him. Not in this instance, however, as the next PM of Great Britain will be picked by the handful of weirdoes who still pay Tory membership fees.
Donald Trump's endorsement of Boris Johnson is more significant than it looks. Yes he's just one xenophobic old guy with no idea what it's like to grow up poor in Britain. But remember to become PM Johnson only needs to convince a few thousand Tory party activists. https://t.co/VoClQR8qHw

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
