Default UN laughter was a sign of respect

People around the world are starting to get it. They are understanding why Trump was elected. I foresee other countries following Trumps lead.

That's the saddest attempt at covering for Trump I've seen in a while.

"No! They were saying Boo-urns. Boo-urns!" -Amb Nikki Smithers, probably.

What do you think they were laughing at? He was making a factual statement about our economy.

The Fed chairman was saying the same thing about our booming economy today. They raised rates AGAIN! They only do that when there is a positive economic forecast.

That's why they never did it under Obama. We had 32 quarters over 8 years with only one hike. Now THAT should have been laughed at, or cried about?

No, he tried to boast his administration had done more than any other in history in the same timeframe, an oft-repeated talking point of his. He didn't mention the economy, and nothing specifically factual.

Well he has done a hell of a lot in a short time frame, more than most I believe. The economy is a big part of it.

And I believe I'm the smartest poster here.

But that doesn't make it true.

**** in one hand and put your beliefs in the other, and see which one fills up first.

With Obama doing that, it's the former.

Those who are in the choir he is singing to think that.
Donald Trump’s speech to the UN was met by widespread laughter, and diplomats have confirmed that their delegations were laughing at — not with — the US president.

“Sometimes, when we see a behavior or listen to arguments or notions that seem so far-fetched, unreasonable, or insane, there is almost natural reaction of laughing,” one Latin American diplomat said, speaking anonymously so he could speak freely.

The diplomat added, “It is not laughing at a good joke, but a nervous laugh, or a bad joke turned laughable precisely because the guy who tells the joke doesn't realize how bad it is.”

Laughter filled the UN General Assembly room on Tuesday after Trump said his administration “has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said in an interview on Wednesday that those in attendance were laughing because they "loved his honesty" and stressed that the diplomatic community respects the president.

"He's very good at knowing his audience," she told Fox News.

But diplomats themselves described the speech as awkward and out of place.

“His words in the opening part of the speech were clearly addressed to [a] domestic audience,” wrote one European diplomat in a message that noted that other world leaders do the same. “But as he did it in the Trumpian way (bragging ridiculously about being one of the best administrations in history) people in the audience reacted how they reacted.”

“What would resonate well at a political rally in America sounded a little awkward at the UN General Assembly,” the diplomat added.

Trump used the speech on Tuesday to hail the importance of sovereignty over multilateralism and to bash those countries that might stand in his way — all while appealing to his own American electorate.

“He doesn’t have any concept of diplomacy,” one Asian diplomat said, though the diplomat added that Trump’s undiplomatic diplomacy has “worked well toward North Korea.”

Ahhh yes because those Latin American countries are doing so well we should care what they think.

Why can't the Left enjoy Trump's economy?

This hatred is toxic
