It was a laugh

It was a laugh that was heard around the world. It was also a laugh that the world or at least its leaders had at the expense of President Trump.

Beginning his speech at the United Nations General Assembly this week, Trump didn’t appear to expect the humorous interlude as he laughed into a recital of his achievements in office to date.

There was no serious stumble, but a short pause, perhaps taking in what was happening. Within seconds, twitter lit up.

Not ling after, television news networks were running clips of an old quote from Trump- `they are laughing at us’- in reference to the Administration of President Obama.

The response was clear: The President screwed up. Worse, his fragile ego was under attack.

And in the words of his wife, First Lady melania Trump, the President is not to be trifled with: `as you know by now if you attack him he will punch back 10 times harder.’

The world has become very familiar with the Trumpian punchback. It’s been a signature of his Presidency since day one

Remember the controversy over Trump’s inauguration crowds in January 2017?

He can’t.

Speaking at the CIA’s headquarters the day after, Trump told the gathered intelligence officials: `I made a speech. I looked out. The field was- it looked like a million, a million and half people.’

But Trump’s crowd was noticeably smaller. His surrogate, Kelly Anne Conway, backed Trump and his spokesman Sean Spicer, saying that the White House was presenting `alternative facts’. But a lie.
