While the House Democrats were trying to “teach” the American people why impeaching the president is a good thing to do, our president was busy representing us at the two day NATO summit in London, England.
During what appears to be happy hour, the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, was caught on video along with Boris Johnson of the UK, and Emmanuel Macron of France, making fun of President Trump taking 40 minutes of questions at each of his meetings at the summit.
Perhaps they wish they were as important as the leader of the nation that has funded NATO for the last 70 years. Without the US, NATO would not continue as an organization.
These “world leaders” consider themselves smarter, better, and more sophisticated than the president, but I think it is pretty dumb to mock the person who represents the country that can make or break the alliance.
