NIGEL Farage this afternoon branded Jean-Claude Juncker a “fool” after the EU boss extraordinarily threatened to promote the break-up of the US in retaliation for Donald Trump’s support for Brexit…
Addressing the annual conference of his centre-right European People’s Party (EPP) in Malta, Mr Juncker said he would campaign for Ohio and Texas to leave the US if Mr Trump did not change his tune towards the EU…
Reacting to the speech Mr Farage, who has become a close personal friend of the US President, told express.co.uk: “Juncker has made a complete fool of himself.
“He clearly does not understand the difference between the EU and the United States of America. One was formed by consent while the other is being imposed.
“The US is an organically formed nation with a single language and similar culture while the cultural and linguistic differences in the EU are immense.
“If this is what Juncker calls diplomacy, he needs to take a long hard look at himself.”

He is a fool if he thinks Texas is going anywhere! Now maybe if he tried California……..
I say Juncker should come over and try. It will be fun – much like the movie BORAT.
‘Come and take it!’, as the saying goes.
Rush already made the observation that the Dem’s would never let California go. Not when they have a lock on those 55 Electoral College delegates.
America what’s left of it at the end will be located in Texas.
As it turns out, the total Calif. POTUS vote count/EV are low compared to other States ( except Texas ).
It was the Ohio bit that made me laugh.
Welll mostly anyway..
Texas won’t leave the Union. No, she’ll exercise her Sovereignty.
We should help the Dutch speaking Flemish achieve independence from the French speaking Waloons. They want to get out of Belgium anyway which is why Belgium had no government for a year.
BRAVO, NIGEL….WELL DONE, SIR!
Fascinating how people of the EU think it is similar to the US and can be broken apart…
I don’t recall the EU member states fighting a Revolutionary War/War of 1812/Civil War to coalesce their Union.
That’s a great map, but the bottom is cut off.
I would love to see Mexifornia secede. Without their 55 electoral votes it would be much more difficult for any dem to win the presidency.
This guy can’t even hold the EU together.
To Juncker’s credit, I’d bet the Democrats would sooner let Ohio leave the Union than they would California.
Texas would become the 12th largest nation in the world by economy. Roughly comparable to South Korea, Russia, and sitting between Canada and Australia.
Or 28th of 192 by size.
He is an idiot.
California, NY, and MA.
Well he did say “Austin, Texas” but it’s still an idiotic line of thought…. we might wish we could slice libtard Austin out of Texas and the USA but it ain’t gonna happen.
As for mentioning Ohio in this context, that was so idiotic that it was clear the guy doesn’t know anything outside the confines of his tiny Luxembourg homeland.
Candy is dandy but Juncker is drunker.
Does Junker realize that the ONLY REASON his Muslim friends were able to tear Yugoslavia, and then Serbia, apart was because of the US military….and that we STILL have troops there, as the moment we leave, people will try to repair the damage we did (and are still doing) there.
We went in there because these holier-than-thou Europeans found they didn’t have a military and therefore could not fight the Serbs themselves – and that is still the case.
