World Leaders Openly Laugh At Trump, Only One Who Doesn’t Get The Joke Is Him

Was Donald Trump successful at telling a joke Tuesday or were the leaders of the United Nations General Assembly actually laughing at him, not with him? Here’s the setup, in any event. Politico:

“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said near the start of a speech before the assembled world leaders, prompting audible laughter.

“It’s so true,” Trump continued, before acknowledging the laughter.

“I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s okay,” he said, smirking and raising his eyebrows.

Trump was apparently the only one present who didn’t get that he was making a fool of himself.

It’s unusual for a U.S. president to draw unintentional laughs at a gathering of world leaders, and Trump has long complained that foreign governments are laughing at the U.S. for what he views as weak policies on trade and other issues.

Sean Hannity will have his hands full of pillow talk tonight.
