They were laughing for him!
“They loved how honest he is,” [U.N. Ambassador Nikki] Haley said. “It’s not diplomatic and they find it funny. ... When he goes and he is very truthful, they kind of were taken back by it.”
“All day yesterday, they were falling over themselves to get a picture with him, to talk about how great his speech was,” she continued. “They love that he’s honest with them and they’ve never seen anything like it, so there’s respect there. I saw that the media was trying to make it something disrespectful. That’s not what it was ― they love to be with him.”
Delusional lunacy is truth when spoken from the mouth of the Ruler. The art of the courtier is not dead.
