The World Is Now Laughing at Trump, and it Is On Video

Do not take this quite as lightly as you might initially be inclined. Video can tell a story or translate truths during times when words might fail. This could prove pretty powerful.

Twitter brings us video of the world’s most respected leaders laughing at, and about, Donald Trump. This is powerful imagery. Note that Trump “friend” Boris Johnson is among the leaders yucking it up. Trump isn’t going to be able to toss this aside as no one but “deep state snobs” (whatever that is) like Macron and Trudeau. No, this is everyone, including Trump allies:

If this video catches fire and gets around, and it likely will, it can change people’s opinions, quickly, especially with someone like Trump, who specializes in creating a fictional reality where he is all-powerful, “perfect.”

Except video doesn’t lie. There is no covering this up. There is no context, or making it look less bad. It speaks for itself.

He is being mocked and Trump is uniquely susceptible to potential humiliation that can come from this experience. The only way to disempower this type of thing is to join the laughter, to laugh at oneself and demonstrate some humility, maybe even apologize. He can’t do it.

We mock him all the time, for us it is normal. But some Republicans don’t see him in this light, ever. It is possible that this is the type of thing that can change Republicans, especially the senate/jury, perhaps seeing Trump in a new light. Play this video while referring to Trump as the “chosen one,” or describing the man who can destroy careers in two sentences thumbed out on the can. Some Republicans might see him as just some fat guy behind the curtain with a phone and temper. There is very little in the world that can shake faux strength with greater efficiency than laughter.

Some Repubs are already doing the knee-jerk denial of reality, and it just doesn’t play:

I can feel it from all the way across the pond and I feel the weakness that comes about from being laughed at, being the joke, the butt. We were utterly humiliated today during the press conferences. But this is even worse, in my opinion. I can’t help but wonder if Republicans feel it, too. This is shameful, the once mighty and noble United States, reduced to a joke.

It could lead to bigger changes than one might initially think. Or we could be at war by morning.

Peace, y’all

As a spectator from Oz, we do laugh at tRump. Then we mutter a few explicitives like..”what a complete fckwit”. As for the citizens of the great US going along for the ride, we’re sorry for you.It will be just a bad dream soon enough.

Fictional reality, that’s been the total of (Trump presidency) ! Is short , it’s just another “group of lies” , as was taught by Trump’s mentor , ROY ( boy) COHN . Saying” a well told lie , is often better than the truth” . Extrapolating from that “ a beautiful story “ , is more believable than the truth . And KELLYANNE, redefined it to mean , “alternative facts “? Trumps whole life , has been fictional, always on stage . Never true , always lying , embellished , to make himself appear to be “ perfect “! But… Read more »
