That’s it, ladies and gentlemoles. It’s time to switch off the internet, dive into a bunker, and prepare for the end. For two nuclear blond bombshells of hatespeech have collided to destroy the planet and everything that we hold sacred. And as if it couldn’t get any worse, they found one another via a lethal combination of Twitter and the Daily Mail. The inevitable march of human progress, eh.

Donald Trump, a US presidential candidate who wants a “total and complete shutdown” on Muslims entering America, has found a cheerleader for his views. Yes, it’s Britain’s very own “respected columnist” Katie Hopkins!

Here he is on Twitter, excited about his new friend:

And here’s her reply:

You guysss!

And here he is again...

All this online loving (or, more accurately, hating) is a result of Hopkins’ Mail column praising Trump’s stance.

“I hear cries that he is a blithering idiot. I have often been called a deranged fool. But if this were true you could ignore me, ignore us, imaging the two of us shouting naked at the rain.

“It's because we articulate sentiments repressed by the politically correct consensus that we have a voice.”

She also agrees with Trump's suggestion that London is dangerously multicultural:

“My family is not keen for me to be in the capital.

“Some friends will no longer come to London.”

They probably don't come because you've been let loose in the capital, Katie. Ah well, at least you have a new best friend to play with now.

I'm a mole, innit.
