Oh, look, a camera. Better think of something quick…I forgot who I am and what this building is. Nailed it.

For your “Excellent comebacks” files, this item from the Buzz Feeds: Former UK Independence Party leader (and still a member of the European Parliament, which he doesn’t even like, so he’s like a Trump cabinet member) Nigel Farage was spotted at the Ecuadorian Embassy Thursday, although he can’t for the life of him seem to recall why he might have been there. Farage, we learn,

spent around 40 minutes in the building and left at noon, accompanied by Christian Mitchell, the head of operations at radio station LBC, where Farage hosts a regular show.

Approached by BuzzFeed News as he left to get into a car waiting round the corner, Farage said he couldn’t remember what he had been doing in the building.

Asked specifically if he had gone to the Knightsbridge building to meet with [Julian] Assange, Farage said: “I never discuss where I go or who I see.”

Well isn’t that a fine spotted dick to put your toad in the hole! Looks like Mr. Farage has been listening to Steve Martin from 1979:

Buzzfeed carefully notes,

There are no known links between Farage and Assange. However, Assange was seen as pro-Donald Trump during and after the US election, and Farage has grown close to the American president and visited the White House last month.

So if Farage wasn’t there to see Assange, what was he doing at the Ecuadorian Embassy? We have a few ideas:

  • Attempted to stir up populist anti-immigrant sentiment among llamas and guanacos, because fuck those murdering vicuñas. They may look friendly, but they’ll spit on your heritage. In a grosser way than llamas and guanacos do, even.
  • Annoyed embassy staff by repeatedly insisting he was at the embassy of Equatorial Guinea.
  • Actually met with Assange, but they both spent the entire 40 minutes saying each other’s names with progressively more ridiculous, nasal French accents. “Ass-onnnnnnnjjjjjjhhhh!” “Fuh-Rohhhhhjjjjjjjzzzzzzhhhhhh!”
  • Didn’t see Assange at all; actually met with Alex Jones and chose location just to freak everybody the fuck out.
  • Tried to convince Ecuador to leave the Organization of American States, a controversial decoupling with the catchy nickname “Ecxit.”
  • Actually met with Assange, commiserated over what a twat that Trump fellow turned out to be.
  • We had some other jokes about why Farage was at the Ecuadorian embassy, but we forgot them. They were really funny, too.

    Yr Wonkette is ad-free, and supported by generous donations from our readers. We would also like to clarify that we have nothing against vicuñas, nor indeed any camelid.

    Update/correction: Thanks to a careless glance at Wikipedia when Rebecca asked me what the hell Farage does now that he’s the ex-leader of UKIP, I mistakenly told her he was a member of Parliament, when in fact he is a member of the European Parliament. We have updated the article; Wonkette regrets the error.

      Nigel first tried to pull the old “I should ask you the same thing, buddy,” but the photographer was like “Well, I’m a photographer that works in the area. I know that you are from the UK, so it is a lot weirder for you to be here.”

      And then he was like “Yeah, I don’t remember what I was doing in there.”

      Jenny Beth Martin, a co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, said on Thursday morning that she’s not happy with the House Republican bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, arguing that it will increase health insurance costs even further.

      “If it passes the way it is presented right now, the hard working taxpayers of this country will be forgotten once again,” Martin told CNN’s “New Day” after saying that the House bill will prompt health insurance prices to “skyrocket.”]

      • WeaselPoo

        ABC News this week talked with North Carolina resident Martha Brawley, a 55-year-old woman who cast a ballot for the first time in her life for Donald Trump. Brawley says that she voted for the president on the hopes that he could bring down the cost of health care — but she’s been appalled so far by what she’s seen from the Republican Congress.

        “I voted for Trump hoping that he would change the insurance so I could get good health care,” she told ABC News. “I might as well have not voted.”
        Of course what Ms. Brawley “might as well have” actually done, was to have paid attention to the last eight years of ACA repeal votes by Republicans, and 20 years of Republican opposition to ANY national government health plan, BEFORE VOTING FOR LESS CARE AT GREATER EXPENSE!!!!

      [Associated Press | 8 Mar 2017 | by Robert Burns
      WASHINGTON — A senior U.S. general on Wednesday accused Russia of deploying a land-based cruise missile in violation of “the spirit and intent” of a nuclear arms treaty and charged that Moscow’s intention is to threaten U.S. facilities in Europe and the NATO alliance.

      “I don’t have enough information on their intent to conclude other than they do not intend to return to compliance” with the treaty, he said. “Absent some pressure from the international community and the United States as a co-signer of the same agreement,” there is no logical reason to believe that Moscow intends to end its recent violations, he added.]

      • Teecha

        He’s such an arse. When he was there claiming none of the other MEPs knew what work was and they all have done real and useful jobs- all he’s ever done is be a stockbroker and then twatted around Brussels claiming expenses.

    • richardgrabman

      Small countries like Ecuador have to fight to preserve their independence from US hegemony with the weapons they have, not the weapons they want. It’s irrelevant whether or not Assange is a terrible human being, or Farange is a
      racist pig. The US makes common cause with some pretty terrible people itself and always has. Assange and Farange’s motives may not be completely aligned with Ecuador’s but leaking this kind of information protects the interests of a lot of smaller, weaker nations.

      • erm, pretty sure it is just the hedge fund money and not the hegemony.
        These “leaks” have done nada squat zilch to protect lil countries from big ones. And considering how Russia is now merrily swallowing up smaller, weaker nations, it might actually actively hurt them!

        • richardgrabman

          That’s reading something in that I don’t see evidence of. As it is, hedge fund investments are a BFD in the Ecuadorian elections right now (the conservative candidate is a hedge fund manager). My musings were more based on Wonkette’s open antipathy towards Assange, focusing on his alleged sexual predation, when it seems more based in his role in undermining Hillary Clinton’s campaign (alleged). It seems what’s overlooked is that Clinton was seen as a much bigger threat to Latin America than Trump, who is merely a boob and racist.

          Besides, Ecuador (and the rest of Latin America) would welcome more business ties to Russia.

      Basically it’s Brit for “Tea Party”: appealing to the populist and politically unsophisticated while blowing racist doggie whistles like all get out.

      Farage was caught working with the BNP(who don’t bother with doggie whistles), but I can’t find the source right now. This is something tho:

              To be honest, I haven’t really seen right-wingers anywhere in (Western) Europe denying evolution – for all their complete detachment from reality, most of them still base at least some of their policy in science-based facts.

            • C4TWOMAN

              It might be a more of an American thing? I’ve heard the European fascist parties do a better job in delivering on some of their promises to the workingclass, so it’s not all just cycnical anti-immigrant posturing.

              Re:evolution
              Now that said, the UKIP is at least pandering to anti- intellectualism:

      The media is giving way too much lip service to the CIA distraction stuff, and between that and the health care bullshitting around, I’ve had it. There’s some great reporting going on just chipping away at all these Russian connections, but no one in a position of power is moving on it any time soon. Shit, the GOP is taking this wiretap and wikileaks garbage more seriously than anything else, so now they’re just feeding themselves their own distractions.

      I’ll be back to see if anything comes out of the March 20 hearings, but otherwise this is a waste of my fucking time.

UKIP has only one member of the BRITISH Parliament, and it’s not him (actually a former Conservative who is on the moderate wing of UKIP and doesn’t get on with his ex-leader and his Trumpist-fascist buddies).

      • Bitter Scribe

        Didn’t he used to be a British MP? (Too lazy/repelled to look it up.)

        • Nope, he couldn’t get a plurality even in the most racist, backwards district of England. (European Parliament is elected by proportional representation). UKIP’s only ever MP is a defector from the mainstream Conservatives.

        He made no secret that he was an agent provocateur, and a very successful one.
        Of course, after he broke his promise to step down post-referendum (and also keeps getting invited back to lead the headless chickens at UKIP) I’ve lost any respect for him in that regard. Another idiot falling for his own myth.
