A video from a reception at Buckingham Palace appears to show several world leaders, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and French President Emmanuel Macron poking fun at President Donald Trump in his absence.

"He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top," said Trudeau.

Funny because it's spot-on. One thing we can bank on: No world leaders get together and admire Trump's character and intellect.

Just more proof of how well respected we are again in the world.

Even that dumbass Boris was getting in on it.

No wonder Fat Nixon is running back to Washington instead of doing the customary post conference presser.

He is a ------- laughingstock.

Classic Trump power play. NATO is about the US, and as the leader of the US - TRUMP. So, they can wait until they are needed - and yes, they can squawk, but they will wait. Reminds of that time last year where Trump brushed that Euro-trash to the side so he would be front and center.

I think Liberals squawked then too. I guess they prefer to have Obama blow the French president before apologizing for the US not giving them more free money.

Also, Trump should have done the 40 minute presser in blackface to show solidarity with Trudeau. The more you liberals hold up these world 'leaders' as anything but a clowncar of failures, the more foolish you look. That is why guys like Putin and Xi laugh at NATO.

Does anybody think Trump gives a damn about anybody in western Europe laughing at him?

That's not where his fortunes lie. His fortunes and his future lay with helping Russia and their expansion into the former U.S.S.R. countries.

Trump would see this frivolity and self assuredness as a weakness to be exploited as he inches his way toward removing NATO from Russia's path to regain their former glory as a world power.

No, it's Vladimir Putin's scorn he fears . . . not those candy-assed westerners.

I think Trump has visions of his very own Trump Dynasty in partnership with Putin's new U.S.S.R. as the only two world powers left in existence and thus, in control of the entire world.

The ultimate POWER and Trump's dream of being the ultimate power-broker come true.

Remember, we're talking about a demented and deranged person who can barely disguise his motives for favoring Russia in everything he says and does.

"as he inches his way toward removing NATO from Russia's path to regain their former glory as a world power."

Seriously - what the F' are you smoking? Under Obama - Russian invaded Crimea and the NATO did NOTHING. Under Obama, Russia took over the Easten provinces in Ukraine - and NATO did NOTHING.

What does he need to remove? NATO is toothless and if you think for one second that the US should/would get involved in a shooting war with Russia due to NATO obligations over Ukraine, Latvia, etc - you are stupid beyond words.

"No, it's Vladimir Putin's scorn he fears . . . not those candy-assed westerners.

Candy-assed westerners is an accurate description. Look at Germany - 'Russia is a threat' - and then signing a deal to bring a Natural Gas pipeline directly to Germany making them dependent on Russia to keep the lights on and houses warm. Ridiculous.

The reality is that the US has no allies - we have bought and paid for puppets that will act if the price is right for them - the best interests of the US be damned. The US people spoke in the last election - we ARE SICK OF PLAYING WORLD COP. If the Germans or French want to get froggy over Russia, they can jump. We all know they won't.

It is about Trump as the leader of the only country in NATO that is actually capable of military action. At best, the Germans could clean latrines and they would probably screw that up. The French are just about selling weapons to de-stabilize the 3rd world so they can bring the US in to clean up their messes - Libya being a prime example.

Here's Biden making the most of Trump being mocked by world leaders in a new campaign video:

Joe Biden @JoeBiden

The world is laughing at President Trump. They see him for what he really is: dangerously incompetent and incapable of world leadership.

We cannot give him four more years as commander in chief.

"I care not if they love us, as long as they know to fear us". J. Caesar. It isn't just Trump, these same nations and their leaders have been laughing at us sense the moment the Soviet Union fell apart. Maybe they would not be so contemptuous if they had to provide for their own defense. At this moment we provide more than half of the military power of NATO.

The US doesn't need the military to enforce a hegemony, we have cultural power greater than any other nation in the last 1000 years. Listen to a short wave radio some night, find out what kinds of music are being played. Go to a book store, look at the literature for sell in France or Germany or anywhere else. Look on any street anywhere. How many places are they wearing American style jeans, T's or American two piece suits? There is a reason.

Give Trump another term and that will no longer be necessary. Say goodby to NATO. Trump will be busy providing half of our military power to Russia.

Congratulations on figuring out why they were mocking Trump.

Why should Trump even attend a NATO meeting, if he doesn't want to lead NATO any more?

Trump needs to just stay at home and work on getting his face to replace the four losers on Mount Rushmore.

#25 | Posted by redlightrobot Oh well, I'll respond to another American hating leftist. First their is nothing new under the sun, the Romans assimilated religions, technologies, cuisine. dress and products. So have we, yet we didn't need to conquer everything and station troops everywhere to influence the cultures of others. Your myopic view of America being a parasite is laughable. People watch our movies, listen to our music, eat out cuisines, wear out styles, and use our technologies because they want to. Certainly we have used what we have seen or brought with us, but initiation is not the theft. It is not cultural appropriation to listen to a little Bock, the Germans don't mind. Hell, I could go full dutch wear leaderhozen,white shirt and one of those wool hats and no one would care. If you like pizza, don't get a slice in Napoli- Italian pizza sucks.

Will the Dems take this to heart and realize that making fun of Trump will almost certainly put him in a place he's never been before?

Like the Kim-Jongs, he's clearly surrounded himself with sycophants who he pays to continually remind him how smart, handsome, and intelligent he is...even when he is none of the above.
