Trump : The laughing stock of the world

Drop file here to send
For the rest of the world, President Donald Trump’s America is a laughing stock, not a leader.

That was the takeaway from Trump’s speech to the 2018 United Nations general assembly. Trump opened his speech the same way he opens his campaign rallies, TV interviews, and probably conversations with every visitor he meets: “In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”

The response from the leaders assembled in the room? Laughter. The entire world literally laughed at the US president – and they weren’t laughing with him. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/sep/25/trump-laughingstock-un-general-assembly

Trump being forced to pause amid laughter at the 2018 UN General Assembly address was borderline embarrassing. It's a shame that we have somebody like him leading and representing us on global platforms amongst such intelligent and competent leaders

If a person were a poorly educated narcissist who depended on his ultra-conservative speech writers to come up with howlers like ”ideology of globalism,” he would do exactly what Trump did, give the same congratulatory talk that got him the same chuckles when he addressed the Boy Scout Jamboree during his first year in office and then launch into a hate-filled attack against those nations that do not treat him fairly. Donald is forever that kid who feels that he is getting less than he deserves.

I agree, in fact, he is not growing into the office any more than he did his role on The Apprentice. He spews the same sort of bilgewater that turns on his “base” with some expectation that he will ultimately be taken seriously as a world leader.

As a liberal I, rather unsurprisingly, didn’t care for President Trump’s second UN speech. But I also don’t underestimate its effectiveness. If you look at responses on social media, like say Facebook, you’ll find his supporters loved it. Of course, they take the speech at face value. All the president has to do is say something and, for Trump voters, it’s true. So if I were to list the misleading, the half-truths and the outright lies in his speech Trump voters would merely yawn and feel that I just don’t get it.

Apart from his risible opening boast he publicly exhibited his ignorance of the world outside his supporters bubble. The UN GA is NOT his idiotic base. It is not a Trump rally.

Of course, he entirely missed the point that isolationism, nationalism, “patriotism”, and protectionism were the scourge of nations in the last two centuries. No wonder the Europeans weren’t impressed. They had 200 brutal years because of these things and want nothing like it again.

Before the General Assembly, Trump claimed that his administration had accomplished more than all other Presidential administrations. The reaction? Diplomats openly laughing at the President of the United States. That never happened to Obama. We really have become the laughing stock of the world, and that is no laughing matter.

Thank you, leaders of the world for letting Trump hear the laughter of people who serve their people by recognizing and performing their duties.

Will he ever realize that his one-dimensional view of the world is not what other people are seeing?

Trump squandered an opportunity when he had the world’s attention. Rather than some bold initiative or a reasoned assessment of international affairs, Trump did what he always does. Make everything about himself—that’s why he got laughed at.
