U.K. Ambassador to the U.S. Kim Darroch resigned from his post Wednesday after leaked diplomatic cables exposed his anti-Trump attitude and the White House announced they planned to stop working with him.
In whining about President Trump’s response to the Ambassador’s comments, CBS Evening News mourned for Darroch’s resignation and defended his comments. “Sir Kim Darroch's resignation came after days of unrelenting criticism by President Trump, who said he would no longer work with the British ambassador,” bemoaned senior foreign affairs correspondent and Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan.
Viewers could sense the disdain as Brennan reported on the actions of the Trump administration and the resulting comments from Darroch and the outgoing U.K. leadership:
In a statement, Darroch said, "The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like." Prime minister Theresa May said she regretted that decision and hoped it won't prevent other diplomats from being candid.
