Business Report: The background on Boris

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Theresa May, the new prime minister of Britain, has named Boris Johnson her foreign secretary.  Here are some examples of the former London mayor's gift for diplomacy.

In 2002 Boris Johnson called citizens of the Congo picaninnies. In 2006 he wrote that Papua New Guinea was a nation of cannibals. Boris Johnson once said the only reason he wouldn't visit parts of New York was the real risk of meeting Donald Trump.

Another time, he said Hillary Clinton had a steely blue stare like a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital. Boris Johnson said Vladimir Putin is a tyrant who looks like Dobby the House Elf in the Harry Potter movies.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Britain's new head… of diplomacy.
