The moment Trump realized they were laughing at him and not "with" him. Priceless... Karma chant everybody!

Serrano: "Common courtesy??"

I suppose you'll be saying the laughter over your comment was intended, too.

commanteer: "27 downvotes to DangoBango for saying he's rather live in the US than Iran. Makes me ashamed to have even one upvote in this group."

Be ashamed for cherry-picking, not getting any up votes... which I'm pretty sure you don't have anyway.

bass4funk: "No, been always direct, unlike a lot of world leaders."

No, not direct. Just plain old stupid and mentally unstable. Huge difference.

"Our President is telling it like it is..."

No, he's either lying or mentally unable to tell when he is telling untruths. If he's "telling it like it is", why did he claim to be saying "best in our history" for laughter? You tell a joke for laughs, not facts, and your man Trump, whom you called various negative names until he won the Republican nomination, including "lunatic", is not at all renowned for telling facts. In fact, he's told the least number of facts of any president in history. THAT is a fact. THAT is telling it like it is.

You think that people posting antisemitic tropes and suchlike is the fault of Democrats?

Yup.

Brilliant when the mask finally slips, Bass.

No, been always direct, unlike a lot of world leaders.

Your leader is on the world stage, giving fascist speeches and still you bang on about liberals. 

Our President is telling it like it is, finally and for once we don’t have to hear some idiot President going around apologizing and still have people laugh behind our backs, won’t do business with us, line their pockets, screw us over and think they can make the deals and call the shots over us. I’m happy we have a President that is aggressive on the world stage like I hoped and expected from him and not leading from behind.

Even Iran today comes across as reasonable and just - and that's saying a lot, given its situation.

Iran and their leaders sounding like their usually manic self, nothing new, more rhetoric and like the President said, they don’t denuclearize, we will squeeze them with the maxim and heaviest sanctions and they’re already bending.

I thought Trump handled the mocking laughter about as well as could have been expected really. Was probably surprised that people off-message hadn't already been thrown out of the rally. My guess is when he get's back to watching Fox for most of the day he'll start getting back into character, then start making mental voodoo dolls, then he'll start stabbing 'em on twitter.

Look how that turned out.

About as badly as could was predicted. Who could have guessed electing an inarticulate moron would have turned out poorly?

Only insecure school-children worry about being laughed at.

Glad we can both agree that Donny is just a angsty schoolboy. Look at him sulking :D 1:49. Who cares if people laugh at you, right? ;)

Please permit me to translate....I speak a little Sixth Grader....

America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.”

"You know that little statue we have in New York harbor, I believe its called the Statue of Liberty - disregard it - we don't want your huddled masses.  We want to be like that great country who's leader I so admire - Russia - Russia for Russians and America for Americans...and if they can interfere in our election again to help me, that would be great...."

Another incredible moment in his incredible speech:  "We recognize the right of every nation in this room to set its own immigration policy in accordance with its national interests, just as we ask other countries to respect our own right to do the same — which we are doing. That is one reason the United States will not participate in the new Global Compact on Migration. Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens."

"We want white immigrants - you know, like my in-laws.  If your skin is darker than that, sorry we're closed....and a shout out to David Duke up there in the balcony"

The following was absolutely classic:  "Virtually everywhere socialism or communism has been tried, it has produced suffering, corruption, and decay. Socialism’s thirst for power leads to expansion, incursion, and oppression. All nations of the world should resist socialism and the misery that it brings to everyone."

"We don't want socialism, communism, or democracy - we want totalitarianism - just ask my best buddy, Vlad the Great..."

This was an epic take no prisoners address to the UN by PDJT.

Prisoners - you know, like Manafort, Gates, Papadapolous, Cohen, Flynn, and soon the Great Orange Inmate himself...

No doubt Nikki Hayley is scanning the videos to see who laughed and will be soon announcing that they will not be forgotten.

People laughing at Trump today reminds of the moment people called out a Casceua(?) rally, the  Romanian leader, who was visibly shocked that anyone said anything against him.  And he ended up being executed.  But think about it - the leaders of the world laughed out loud at the President of the USA because of his deluded beliefs and lies.  And he seemed shocked.  How out of touch is this fantasist?

"We need a president who isn't a laughing stock." - Donald Trump in 2014

Though for some reason GoTrumpers used to knock President Obama when he read from the teleprompter, I'm glad Trump used one at the UN. He appears to be getting better at reading from it. Can you imagine how much MORE of a laughingstock Trump would have been had he winged it like he does at his beer hall rallies. Picture him making a finger gun while saying boom boom in front of the world's cameras.

With a fragile ego, I'm sure Trump now wants to sanction the world for laughing at him. AT HIM.

Yeah because getting laughed at by others long after elementary school is like really important.

"We need a president who isn't a laughing stock." - Donald Trump in 2014

Trump was just parroting the GOP talking point of the time, and now the GOP is defending Trump who's literally being laughed at. Typical Republican hypocrisy. Completely in line with a supposed party of family values that unwaveringly supports a philandering conman.

@texaggie We reject the ideology of globalism, 

How many multinational, i.e. GLOBAL, corporations originated in the US and have their headquarters in the US? How many countries in the world have US military bases? How many countries does Trump have properties in? Are all those multinationals going to stop doing business outside the US? Is Trump going to sell his GLOBAL holdings?

Socialism’s thirst for power leads to expansion, incursion, and oppression.

Does this mean when the US invaded Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and oppressed people there it was socialist?

@Gremlin.Gaijin

Well the US has destroyed Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria...

The US has been financing/arming directly or indirectly most (all?) of the terrorists in the Middle East (and elsewhere).

Both America and Israel have complete disregard for "borders or the sovereign rights of nations". The US recently announced they'll remain in Syria even after the elimination of ISIS.

So, you're saying that America and Israel are currently financing all of the terrorism, and other armed conflicts, IN THE WORLD?

Here's how the Orange Idiot will probably change being laughed at from being a negative, to being one of his greatest achievements - even if only in his own mind.

He will simply (yes, simply) tell himself, and anyone who will listen, that he has made history (again) by being the first President, ever, to make members of the United Nations General Assembly laugh at ANYTHING. Not only that, he did so simply (yes, I know) by Humbly pointing-out to everyone that he is doing a really great job (probably better than any other President, ever).

As of 25 September 2018, 140 Member States have paid their regular budget assessments in full.

The USA WAS NOT one of them.

Hahaha. People would know this if they hadn't gone to a university that focuses on agriculture to the exclusion of literacy, logic, and critical thinking.

Really poor move, dude. We don't attack people for where they go to university or the field they chose to go into. If (hypothetically speaking) a troll on here presents themselves as being from a particular school, we don't mock people for being from that school - we mock the troll for being a troll.

Agriculture is a fine field to study or work in, and has zero bearing on a person's literacy, logic, or critical thinking. Few college courses even study those things directly, and arguably none can be learned entirely through a class, whatever its topic is.

We criticize people for what they do, not for who they are. To do otherwise is to embrace the Alt-Right's ideology.

@serrano UN corruption and globalism. 

Some posters frequently link to videos financed by Putin and featuring politicians supporting a white supremacist agenda like Nigel Farage and spokesmen for white supremacy like Tucker Carlson. They use terms like 'globalism'. Is this what you mean:

Globalism is sometimes used as a synonym for globalization, but usually with overtones of xenophobia, anti-immigration, anti-Semitism (i.e., International Jewish conspiracy) [63] and general conspiracy theories.

It's a definite possibility. Trump consumes a lot of Fox News and Breitbart, and is surrounded by an echo chamber, so it's likely he rarely hears anything more than slightly critical of him, most things just supporting him.

I read this is what happened to Bush jr. as well. He was so isolated from the real world and the real news, that he had no idea how the people really felt about him for a long time.

This speech outlines a way through the morass of international politics, UN corruption and globalism. There's so much positive stuff here. Speaking on sovereignty, patriotism and the nation-state as the vehicle for human freedom. You can see the EU struggling now after years of globalist governance. And a year after his first UN address, we see such progress. The steady positivity coming out of North Korea is building a path for tyrants to amend their ways. The new and fairer trade deals with Mexico and South Korea are paving the way for other countries like Canada and the EU to make deals, which will ratchet pressure on China and also Iran. This President is a wonder to behold, speaking for Americans unapologetically and exposing the failed ideologies of socialism and globalism.

Shame on those who laugh at Trump, they should all be locked up.

So I always here that the world is just stroking trump’s ego. Yet today liberals are overjoyed at some laughing. So which one is it, I haven’t heard that laughing at someone is an ego stroking technique.

Give it a little time, Trump, as he always does, will turn what anyone else would clearly see as a humiliating put-down, into a glowing endorsement of what he said.

Our man-child President takes his third-rate lounge act to the UN - and get's laughed out of the house.  Surprise, Surprise...

And these are the folks laughing in front of his face, multiply it by 100 to get all those laughing behind his back - you know, like "Anonymous" and all the rest of the Republican Resistance in the White House....

Funny how Trump (&others) always demonize Iran, but the Kingdom ( read medieval autocracy in camels clothing) , not only gets no slaps of disapproval - it gets a totally free pass from successive US regimes.

S.A abysmal human rights records, it's belligerence, it's bullying, it's terrorist support(often de facto), it's military intrusion into sovereign states sounds just like the rhetoric Trump aims at Iran. One is good - One is bad. lol.

Trumps personal politics and affiliations surely have great play here.

These days, when the US sneezes, everyone turns away to avoid the infectious spray.

The cure is isolation. Put the rogue nation in quarantine until the illness passes.

The symptom received laughs because of it's failure to comprehend the bigger world out there. Like a mindless virus, it attacks, spreads and eventually causes total shutdown.

Trump: We reject the ideology of globalism

You manufacture in China, import foreign workers into your resorts, brought your wife's family over via chain migration, and get your financing from Germany.

This is so bizarre. Iran was in compliance with the prior nuclear agreement, at the same time, Trump is praising Kim Jong Un who has done virtually nothing.

"Confronting multilateralism is not a sign of strength. Rather it is a symptom of the weakness of intellect - it betrays an inability in understanding a complex and interconnected world," he said.

If you think that other world leaders disrespecting your leader enough to laugh at him in the UN is not a big deal, you're deluding yourself. And look at what they laughed at - his claim that he's done more than anyone.

Exactly. When the self-proclaimed "greatest president the US ever had" brags about his own achievements, chances are he's gonna be laughed at. What else should ppl do, cheer & clap? This wasn't a Trump rally.

"I didn’t expect that reaction, but that's OK," he said.

"Confronting multilateralism is not a sign of strength. Rather it is a symptom of the weakness of intellect - it betrays an inability in understanding a complex and interconnected world," he said.

He's absolutely right. Still, there is some hope of co-operation:

Remaining members in the nuclear deal - the UK, China, France, Germany and Russia - say they will set up a new payment system to maintain business with Iran and bypass US sanctions.

Well regardless of what you think is happening or who is doing it, I like the results. As do many others. 

A lot of people are ignorant.

Maybe the last guy should have done it like this. everyone loved the world apology tour though.

World apology your is an odd euphamism for helping restore US leadership after Bush II ran it into the ground.

No reason to laugh at a guy who is delivering you pallets of money, right? Just stroke his ego and get some more cash

The "giving you pallets of cash for no reason" is a trite falsehood comservatibes love pushing. How about Trump suspending US-ROK war games because Kim stroked his ego? What did Trump get in return? The intelligence agencies say not much.

Conservative "logic" is hilarious.

Yeah because getting laughed at by others long after elementary school is like really important.

If you think that other world leaders disrespecting your leader enough to laugh at him in the UN is not a big deal, you're deluding yourself. And look at what they laughed at - his claim that he's done more than anyone. Do you really think other leaders are negotiating at him beyond a placating level? Do you really think he can negotiate effectively with people who feel that way about him?

Nope. This is just one more delusion of the right. When world leaders negotiate with Trump, they are simply blowing enough smoke up his a$$ to keep him distracted, while they negotiate around him altogether either with other Americans in the background, or with other countries, bypassing the US altogether.

No, I am talking about making fun of Trump at the correspondents dinner. That made him go from wanting to run to actually running. (And winning!)

And I was talking about the nature of time. You know, how 1999-2000 was long before that correspondents' dinner.

Why was Obamataking the piss out of Trump? Oh, yeah, because Trump was pushing that vile birthed nonsense. Funny how you guys think it's appropriate for Trump to punch back, but condemn Obama for having done so. More of that conservative "logic."

We want to be isolated from any country that is rude enough to support their leave laughing at the UN (that we pay for btw)

We being the intellectually deficient people that defend Trump at every turn. The rest of us that don't have to remind ourselves to breath want nothing to do with that nonsense.

Very presidential, and why the US is becoming more and more isolated. Keep that "logic" coming.

if Obama could have kept his mouth shut there wouldn’t even be a President Trump, right? But he had to go for the cheap laugh, didn’t he?

So now Obama is responsible for Trump wanting to become president. Funny given Trump wanted to run way back in 1999-2000, which, if you know anything about how time works, was long before Obama called out Trump for Trump's repulsive birtherism.

A thin-skinned, temperamental, intellectually deficient president is definitely good for the country. Just ask Trump supporters.

How many multinational companies have headquarters in the US?

And here are liberals siding once again with brutal regime leaders instead of the duly elected President of the United States. 

Pointing out a fact is not siding with brutal regime leaders against the President, it is pointing out a fact.

So, it's completely acceptable for the president to side with brutal regime leaders - Putin, Kim - over the US, but not for anyone else. Got it. Sound conservative "logic."

Lets send them some more pallets of cash, to find more terrorists and nuclear research, huh?

Yeah, why would the US give a country back that country's cash in exchange for a freeze on that country developing nuclear technology that leads to nuclear weapons? That's just stupid. Instead, the US should pull out of the framework that froze the development and watch as other countries take the lead. More conservative "logic."

"Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction," Trump told the gathering in the green-marbled hall. "They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations."

Comedy gold. How can anyone take this charlatan and his nonsense seriously?

"The 1953 Iranian coup d'état, (known in Iran as the "28 Mordad coup") was the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh on August 19, 1953, orchestrated by the intelligence agencies of the United Kingdom (under the name "Operation Boot") and the United States (under the name "TPAJAX Project"). The coup saw the transition of Mohammad-Rezā Shāh Pahlavi from a constitutional monarch to an authoritarian one who relied heavily on United States government support to hold on to power until his own overthrow in February 1979."

It is if you are the president trying to give a speech in front of other world leaders. It indicates that you are an idiot. World leaders don't laugh at each other unless one is acting like an elementary school student.

All Trump said was he would reject globalism and put American interests and patriotism first.

You either didn't read the article or have literacy issues.

The relevant part of the article:

Trump, who begins his political rallies with boasts about his economic record in less than two years in office, used the same rhetoric before the crowd of world leaders and diplomats, telling them he had accomplished more than almost any previous U.S. president.

That sounds like a U.S. President doing his job to me. Why others wouldn't get on board with that is only because they hate America and want to see it drowned in communism and anarchy.
