U.N. Responds to Trump with Laughter

President Trump addressing the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly

Today, Trump’s past comments about how America is being laughed at, finally came true. During a speech to the UN, as Trump spoke about nationalism, patriotism, and his “accomplishments” to the United Nations General Assembly, he quickly failed at his attempt as a statesmen, and instead became an unintentional stand-up comedian bragging that: “In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.” With that, the laughter began, but didn’t stop there, seemingly losing his place he said, “America’s… So true.” got far more laughter, to the point where Trump was forced to pause to let the laughter die down.

“Didn’t expect that reaction but that’s ok.” He smiled, and at that the laughter boomed through the assembly along with derisive applause.

For several years, Trump has suggested under previous administrations that the world was laughing at us; in one of his many past tweets that have returned to haunt him, he tweeted in 2014, “We need a President who isn’t a laughing stock to the entire World. We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect!”

By January of 2016, according to the Washington Posthe had already said 103 times in some form that, “The world is laughing at us.”

Whether he was accurate about the world laughing at us under President Obama—spoiler, he wasn’t—with Trump as our Head of State, the chickens have come home to roost, and they’re making a lot of noise.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
