On Monday 19 September, much of the world’s attention was drawn to the funeral and laying to rest of Queen Elizabeth II in London. It was a ceremony the likes of which has not been seen since the deaths of her father, George VI, in 1952, and Prime Minister Winston Churchill, in 1965. But as the vast majority of global leaders took their place in Westminster Abbey for the service, a former president was taking to his self-created social media site to mock the man who defeated him in the last United States elections.

What did Trump say about Biden’s funeral seat?

Despite the solemn nature of the occasion, former US president Donald Trump thought it was a good idea to poke fun at the position of Joe Biden’s seat in the 14th-row of the grand abbey. Some would suggest he may still be a little bitter about losing out to his political rival in 2020, but I’d not be inclined to believe that the 76-year old could be so childish at a time like this.

“This is what’s happened to America in just two short years. No respect!” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform on the same day as the funeral was taking place. “However, a good time for our President to get to know the leaders of certain Third World countries,” he added.

‘If I were president, they wouldn’t have sat me back there — and our Country would be much different than it is right now!” he concluded, for the time being.

OK, it would appear that I was wrong. Talk about understanding the meaning of ‘respect’.
