There has been shock amongst diplomatic circles this morning after a leaked memo written in crayon from the US Ambassador in London revealed that a Trump appointed diplomat can read and write.

“It took us by surprise.” A spokesman for the Foreign Office told The Rochdale Herald.

“We’d all assumed that the US embassy in London was communicating with the White House with poorly coloured in pictures and emojis via Twitter.”

“To find that there is somebody in Trump’s government who can actually write stuff down on a piece of paper and, more shockingly, that there might be somebody in Washington DC who might be able to read it has rocked us to the core.”

The leaked memo which reads “Everybody luvs u here Mr Precedent. We cant weight for u to cum bak again sooon *sic*. Wish there was a Trump hotle in London because there grate. All hail Trump.”

Previous memos leaked to the Guardian newspaper during the Bush administration were just crudely drawn pictures of the Middle East on fire.

“This is a serious development in International affairs. We now have to assume that there is somebody in The White House who might be reading things to President Trump.”
