Benji Hyer: Westminster Attack

Here is what we know so far.

At the time of writing, four people have died and 40 people have been injured in a terror attack near the Houses of Parliament.

In this exclusive W!ZARD News report, Benji Hyer explains what we know so far, and expresses his opinion on the condemnable reaction this horrendous terrorist attack.

There were many who, in the midst of this cowardly marauding attack, came rushing to help the injured; there were others who have tried to score cheap political points.

Terrorism looks not just to kill and cause physical harm, but to generate mayhem and a degree of disorder that rocks a city to its foundations. However: order, values of freedom, liberty and democracy will prevail.

Trump shook Abe’s hand like he might rip it off but snubbed Merkel when she offered hers; he is weirding out America’s allies, and was outclassed bigly by Merkel, who exposed him as the petulant, misogynistic buffoon that he is.

It’s no surprise; comparing the intellectual acumen of Merkel with Trump is like observing the difference between the ocean and an inflatable backyard pool. He sounded like an imbecile next to Merkel, who actually understands diplomacy and foreign policy; he’s totally in over his head. The body language and obvious discomfort, hostility and resentment between Trump and Merkel looked worse than the painful Obama-Netanyahu dynamic; he couldn’t stand to even look at her!

Donald Trump, once again, focused on the issues that he campaigned on: trade, immigration control, military strength and manufacturing jobs. Angela Merkel, on the other hand, focused on the benefits of globalism, openness to refugees and the need to negotiate a “safe and secure solution for Ukraine”. Afterwards, Trump wrote on Twitter that “despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel”. He then went on to lecture her and other European allies on NATO duties.


When I asked listeners: Is Merkel now the leader of the free world? one listener, Max from Texas replied: “If Merkel is so great, why did she mess up the refugee situation? And, another thing. Would it hurt her to learn “English’? Most German citizens speak or understand English at least a bit. Incredible that she needs interpreters to follow her everywhere while…
