So recall that once upon a time Theresa May invited Trump to the UK for a state visit. Then that invite got downgraded because it was clear the formal procession through London was going to be a sea of protestors.

But! Trump was still invited, and he was going to make a “working visit” instead in 2018.

Not any more. He’s been disinvited because he tried to start a Twitter war with Theresa May after she disapproved of him retweeting British white nationalists.

So to summarize, the President caused a major diplomatic breach with one of our closest allies purely because he’s a belligerent racist idiot who likes to stir up trouble.

Let’s not forget that Trump – with the power of the world’s largest economy at his back, master of tens of thousands of government workers at his beck and call – started the Tweet war by rebuking some random woman in the south of England who has a grand total of six followers.

The media that was “speculating” about Tillerson were the New York Times and CNN, which wrote articles parroting what Trump administration officials told them what was going to happen.

Then CNN wrote an article saying no, this was just Trump manipulating the press into reporting Tillerson was fired in order to browbeat Tillerson.

As Josh Marshall and others have pointed out (though, ahem, not in these words) - how goddamn stupid do the NYT and CNN have to be to keep falling for this crap? Trump is using them to push his own agenda, then pulling the football away and calling the bogus stories he planted “fake news.” And they keep taking the bait.
