Hey Donnie: They're laughing at you, not with you

Hey Donnie: They're laughing at you, not with you

Look, of course Donald Trump was going to be an embarrassment at the UN General Assembly. There was no way anything else was going to happen. But this?

He honestly doesn’t seem to get that they’re laughing at him, and he doesn’t know how to process it.

He’s gone to the UN to hold a campaign rally, because that’s all he knows how to do. And he can barely do that, as he stumbles over words and phrases.

To those afraid that Trump is some evil genius: no, he’s not. He’s a laughingstock. And he’s being played by all and sundry, to the detriment of our country. Ply him with some insipid words, tell him he’s wonderful, and he’ll bend over backwards for you, to hell with the nation’s interests. He has no interests except his own. He’s a moronic soi disant Louis XIV. In his mind there’s no difference between the state and himself.

The world wasn’t laughing at the US under Barack Obama. It was marveling that a nation with a dark racial history could produce and elect such a figure. But now? Oh yes. The laughter is ringing out, and it’s dark mockery.
