The United Nations General Assembly literally LOL’d at Trump’s claims that he’s doing a good job
Today, Donald Trump gave his second speech of his presidential term before the United Nations General Assembly. In it, he made some pretty lofty claims about the success of his administration, as he is wont to do.
More specifically, he told the Assembly, “My administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
And then the Assembly literally laughed in his face.
Like, not even just chuckles. They full on laughed at him. It’s not like he didn’t deserve it. Obviously that claim is asinine and entirely untrue. But can we take a moment to appreciate the fact that the most diplomatic people on the planet were all together in one room and were incapable of being diplomatic toward this guy? Because that’s what just happened.
Also, let’s direct our attention toward one of Trump’s 2014 tweets, which was directed at then-President Barack Obama, who, by the way, was never openly laughed at by the United Nations.
OK, well, now that we’ve seen that, let’s LOL together at the jokes the internet is making about this. Because typical Trump news is about things like racism and family separation at the border, and this is more like a hilarious scene from a sitcom. It’s a nice break, having something so light to read about, don’t you think?
But, you know, only light in comparison to the usual headlines. It’s actually pretty embarrassing and kind of a national low point.
That was the only part of the speech that got a laugh from the entire assembly, but pretty much the whole thing was treated like a joke.
And world leaders were definitely not amused by his America-first agenda.
Weirdly, Trump seemed to take it all in stride, even joining in on some of the laughter. That’s not his usual reaction to criticism, which kind of makes it seem like maybe he didn’t understand they were laughing at him, and not with him?
Anyway, he’ll probably rage-tweet about it later. Make America Great Again, amirite?
