Maybe, because the snippets of his being laughed at, of the Germans and others smirking at his various pronouncements about Germany being beholden to Russia, went viral.

The numbers of those who actually watched his entire address would not be noteworthy or noteworthy compared to other Presidents' addresses to the UN Assembly, I'm betting. dWi Bush's addresses to the UN after 9/11 were probably much more watched if you consider for how long each viewer tended to tune in for.

Dr. Mark Jefress said that it was the strongest speech in UN history. Mark Levin said that the speech was spectacular. What is the matter with these people? I guess for a political rally or a comedy routine, it was OK. He was speaking to the leaders of the world. They could care less of how great he is and all that he has accompolished, which is all in his narcissistic mind. He has managed to make this nation the laughingstock of the world.

His UN speech was lifted straight from his incessant campaign rallies, albeit without the yelling, and he certainly doesn’t “play it for laughs” when he lies about his 2-year accomplishments to the thunderous applause of the loyal loafer-lickers.

Critics here of the President don't even listen to the speech, or they would know the laughter was related to a Trump witticism about the smattering of elitist snickering about his undeniable claims of economic revival in the U.S. The laughter, once again, was reaction to a Trump joke. Leftists and those liking the results of poverty and genocide in every Socialist endeavor worldwide will (without fail) misrepresent what they hear from other Leftist lunatics.

He said that he did not expect that reaction. What he did expect was a standing ovation and guess what....he did not get it. He must have thought that he was at a rally with all of his supporters. What an idiot.

The phenomenal generosity of President Trump to address the United Nations is remarkable. They have the nerve to set up "human rights" agencies actually headed and directed by identified terrorists. They have the nerve to promote the very Socialist genocides and failures Trump addresses. No one can claim President Trump is a coward. He puts the truth of their hypocrisies and failures right in their faces and challenges them to become human again.

Please clue me in on what the "joke" was. A comedian does not looked shocked when he tells a joke, people laugh and the says he did not expect that reaction. Nice try, though.

Trump's strong and disciplined honesty is like the JFK and Stevenson directions to exposure of UN weakness to various tyrannies in the early 1960s. The same Democrat and Deep State influences opposing Trump today are the same evil forces leading to the killing of JFK. Democrat Communists killed JFK and Democrat Communists want to kill Trump today.

Trump's speech was ridiculed in the appropriate manner. He just isn't taken seriously by other world leaders. Even within his closest circle people are preventing him from turning his tantrums into a crisis of global proportions. What I like about Trump is his actual transparency, the more he tries toreassure and convince and boast about his superhuman taslents. The fake news smokescreens and the blatant, arrogant lies. They show his true character, and no amount of tax cut bribes, or pandering to religious nuts will ever endear him to the majority of Americans. Trump is the first POTUS of the Disunited States of America.

There was some amount of laughter from his typically over heated claim that his Administration has done more than about any other in two years than blah blah blah. That laughter was clearly derisive.

He then said he didn't expect that reaction. There was stronger laughter at that comeback. The nature of that laughter is difficult to decode - I think some of it was still mocking and some was in response to his off the cuff comment. Then he said of the initial reaction, that's okay, though. That got laughter again along with some applause.

His reaction to the initial, clearly mocking laughter was far more adept than I ever would have expected from someone apparently of that personality type.

What really should provoke derisive laughter is Ill Duce Trump starting his address with this idea that the US is going to leave other countries alone, followed by 30 minutes or so on his intent to have the US bring certain other countries to heel.

There are major, threatening conflicts now with both Russia - cyber both ways, overt and proxy military, sanctions - and with China - tariffs, S. China sea contestation - and with the EU - economic and cultural - and the world is in the early stages of being more at risk than anytime since the Cuban missile crisis or during some of the partially reported nuclear threats by the US (or near nuclear weapon errors) since the Cuban missile crisis, imo.

I think I got a slightly different take on it all.
Trump isn't being taken seriously he's being tolerated and patronized as you would with a dotty old relative. Nod and smile don't agitate the old guy.
Trump didn't expect that response because he took it as a positive reaction. They couldn't be laughing at him surely?

Well there was definitely audible applause after his "but that's okay," so there went your typically clueless, excessively partisan blather-hypothesis.

Applause does not fit into your "take" on it.

So I guess to you the Trump joke was "In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country," because that is when the snickers started. Then outright laughter when he said "so true". He then said he was surprised by the reaction to even more laughter.

The look on his face was not calm and reminded me of the look he had while he was being roasted at a correspondent dinner.

But your "take" was that he was a total fool being laughed at. Remember? My observation was that, regarding his last comeback, he was being somewhat witty, and got applause for it.

It appears you don't know or understand your "take" on events.

if he were attempting to raise a laugh he wouldn't say he didn't expect that reaction, and of course that's very strange not actually just humorous. Trump doesn't have a real grasp of reality it seems
