Please note if you’re an American visiting London in the next few days, the U.S. Embassy has issued an alert. You are advised to be “aware of their surroundings.” Also, “keep a low profile.” Donald Trump is in town and that means trouble. The absurdity and yet the necessity of this tells you everything you need to know about life in the time of Trump.

To be sure, huge demonstrations are planned over the next three days, and Trump is actually avoiding London for most of his time in the U.K. From Huffington Post:
- “Cities across the United Kingdom are expecting protests to reach gargantuan levels on Thursday and Friday. British police are preparing for the biggest mobilization of forces since 2011, police chiefs told The Guardian.”
