Who Is Newly Elected Prime Minister Boris Johnson? | NBC News Now

About the author


  1. I can’t believe the brits didn’t learn from the USA. Idiots, guarantee he can’t make brexit happen: Theresa May is twice the person he is.

  2. Congrats England! You took your country back from globalism and open borders. Much respect from the USA

  3. can we just let boris johnson be his own standalone bad leader? these trump jokes are getting out of control

  4. Guess the US isn't the only superpower that is tired of fake news, political correctness, and in general, promiscuous snow flake liberals

  5. So Theresa May is England's Hillary Clinton and Boris Johnson is England's, Donald Trump…

    Keep it up Libs! MAGA/MEGA!!

  6. "I'm a center right progressive modern conservative"… I'm even more confused about British politics than ever before

  7. God speed may you be as blessed as we are here in the U.S. Stay the course. The media hates the real people fighting for the people.

  8. Boris has to be related to Trump

    Both born in New York

    Same policies

    Both conservatives

    They even look similar

    Both embarrass themselves in public

    Only differences might be age and accent

  9. Trumps message is heard around the world, Boris is just the first. Cant wait for the French and Canadian elections! Best ramp up the FAKE NEWS.

  10. I'm not a Boris fan but the yanks in the comment section need to know he's no dummy. He is bumbling, likeable, personable, disarming, charming, funny, ambitious, crafty, cunning, deceitful, scheming, conniving, ruthless. This man is Intelligent enough to be very Dangerous, so I suspect he'll go far.

  11. he was a great mayor to our city before it was taken over by an actual islamist, he will be a great prime minister too

  12. Boris 'the kipper' blojob, prime minister by defaulr. Compare and contrast blojob's outrage at the blair-brown transition with his own accession.

  13. We’ve got Boris
    Super Boris
    I just don’t think you understand
    He needs to buy a comb
    He’ll help the Brits get a home
    We’ve got super Boris

  14. We wish you success, but a question about the situation of some of the following people accused them of terrorism in direct and indirect ways and they are innocent Are you looking to reconsider

  15. The very stable genius who took England into Brexit, how's that going again Britain? Another right wing boob.

  16. I didn't know who this guy was (mainly cause I live in the US and don't follow UK politics for clear reasons). So I went to the ever infallible Wikipedia and it says this:

    "Johnson is a controversial figure within British politics and journalism. Supporters have praised him as an entertaining, humorous, and popular figure, with an appeal stretching beyond traditional Conservative voters. Conversely, he has been criticised by figures on both the left and the right, who have accused him of elitism, cronyism, dishonesty, laziness, and using racist and homophobic language. Johnson is the subject of several biographies and a number of fictionalised portrayals."

    So in other words, he's Trump…no I mean…he's literally identical from every possible angle to Trump, like as if someone just cloned Trump and shipped him over to the UK….in fact tbh it even LOOKS like it too. lol

  17. No, 10 DS is not the equivalent of the white house. The PM is not the head of state only the head of Her Majesty's Government. Buckingham Palace would be a better equivalent

  18. As a Briton, I can confirm that this is an inept and superficial report. Boris is basically the British version of Trump: he has a public facade of a bumbling incompetent, but in reality no dirt sticks to him and he can maneuver like an F16. In addition, Boris is one of the most well educated politicians in the world and he has the legendary Rees-Mogg as his right hand man. I can't wait for the inevitable joint press conference with Boris and Trump.

  19. Congratulations, Britain, for electing Vivian Rook in Reality. Yeah, you know, that whole “Years and Years” TV show. Water off a duck’s back, huh? Imbeciles! You deserve those Concentration Camps, and I hope they are very bad ones.👎

  20. I see you Brits learned a lot from your TV show about the near future called “Years and Years,” you learned how to elect a dangerous right wing lunatic like Vivian Rook in real life. I guess those English accents just make you Seem to be intelligent, right? Yes, I figured that out.

  21. Some people in these comments… 😂 Allow me to break this down for everyone: WE DID NOT VOTE FOR BORIS JOHNSON! That’s not how our government works. The Tory party voted for Boris Johnson when Theresa May resigned. And even in elections, we don’t vote for our prime minister, we vote for MP’s to represent our area and the party with the most MP’s elect a prime minister.
