Amazing! Nigel Farage was allowed into US on a special exemption because the Secretary of State for Homeland Security deemed it ‘in the national interest’. HAHAHAHAHA! WE’RE SO SORRY, AMERICA BUT HE’S YOURS NOW

Great get by @ashcowburn for @Independent. Department of Homeland Security confirmed the exemption:

In normal times Dept of Homeland Security granting an exemption for a friend of the president to attend a political rally on grounds of ‘national interest’ would be totally outrageous overstepping of all possible lines. But who are we kidding? Both US & UK so far beyond ‘normal’
