World leaders joking about Trump behind his back is making everyone’s day better
In all honesty we weren’t especially looking forward to the NATO summit in London, mostly because we weren’t invited.
But then we saw this clip of world leaders appearing to joke about Donald Trump behind his back and now we’re thinking they should get together more often. A lot more often.
This is quite the video from the CBC showing Trudeau, Macron, and Johnson discussing what appears to be Trump. pic.twitter.com/QDgIXwEwlk

Boris Johnson: “Is that why you were late?”
Justin Trudeau: “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top. Oh, yeah, yeah yeah. He announced …”
Emmanuel Macron: [inaudible]
Trudeau: “… you just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”
Literally everyone: [laughs]
And just a few of the things people were saying about it.
Can’t get over this video, both for the fact that POTUS hates the thought of anyone laughing at him and for the fact that he long used “other countries are laughing at us” as an attack against his predecessors. https://t.co/j2zmF27vBK

This happens at every NATO summit with Trump. Every G7. Every G20. The US President is mocked by US allies behind his back. pic.twitter.com/FWncEM7jVs

Oh My God.
I knew this happened.
But I’ve yet to see it up close.
Trudeau, Macron, Johnson, Rutte and Princess Anne in Buckingham Palace, openly mock Trump.
Cannot wait for this to be The Crown Season 8. https://t.co/ZuHIxwy8ta

You’ll probably have spotted that the world leaders were also joined by Princess Anne, fresh from this A+ Trump snub which is even better.
The Queen chastising Princess Anne for not greeting Trump and Anne not giving a single shit is the mood we all need to take into today pic.twitter.com/W5cCFlq2Ui
