Boris Johnson seems to be in some doubt, so let’s be clear: Donald Trump telling non-white lawmakers to “go back” where they came from is racism.
And let’s be clear about Mr Johnson too: His reluctance to whimper a word of criticism about that vile bigotry confirms the Bullingdon buffoon is totally unfit to be Prime Minister.
At last night’s hustings, he did eventually join his limp rival Jeremy Hunt in saying gosh, well, maybe what the President said wasn’t so great. But neither he nor Mr Hunt would call it racist.
Mr Trump yesterday doubled down on his bigotry, telling the four congresswomen (all but one born in the US) he had attacked that they hated their country.
Mr Trump, whose mother was a Scottish immigrant and whose grandfather was born in Germany.
Mr Trump, whose father was arrested at a Ku Klux Klan demonstration.
Mr Trump, whose Make America White Again “birther” campaign in 2008 questioned whether Barack Obama (remember him?) was born in the USA.
Now Trump’s mini-me Mr Johnson sides with this loathsome oaf at every opportunity.
And the small sect that is the Tory membership will impose Mr Johnson on the country.
What should be clear then is just how much of a disaster his premiership is going to be.
