Delegates to the U.N. General Assembly laughed when Trump ticked off his wildly inflated accomplishments during his chance to address the group. Those are the lines Trump’s rally audiences in the South and Midwest love the most, the lines they cheer. The U.N. delegates didn’t cheer. They laughed.
Trump hardly ever speaks to people other than his adoring base, friends and family, or Fox news — all of whom have a vested interest in kowtowing to his fantasy world. The delegates had no such interest, and they let him know what they think of him. Not much.
