      On each of the main news outlets, they each asked protestors why they are protesting Trump's visit.

    That just annoyed me, haven't those protesters got anything better to protest against? Like housing problems? The stranglehold finance has on the motor trade in the UK? Payday loan companies that have over 3000% interest? Anything. But no, its somebody else's problem that gets people protesting. I bet some took a day off work to protest too!

I think you are spot on.

They will never protest at the lack of housing or for anything which actually impacts British people because nobody is going to give them a pat on the back for it.

It'sjust a nice day out to London for people who have been conditioned to hate Trump (even though they can't articulate why).
Of all the heads of state who have had a state visit to the UK, Trump is way down the list of despots and tyrants, but those leaders weren't as juicy and cool to protest.

The world seems a bit upside down at times.
