    Trudeau and other leaders laughing at Trump's behaviour. Should we be worried? If so, should we be worried:
    a) that NATO appears so divided?
    b) that NATO leaders are so childish as to mock the leader of the country that contributes most to the common defence?
    c) that Trump is such a childish parody of a leader?
    d) all of the above?

    Irrespective of their opinion on Trump you'd think they'd have a bit of gratitude for America spending the gold and committing her sons to defend their lands... allowing them to have generous welfare programmes ...

    I suspect this will play very well with the Isolationist crowd in the heartlands.

    Trump is not America.

    He's a here today, gone tomorrow politician.

    It is possible to laugh at him without laughing at Americans. The biggest debt we owe them is for 1941-1945. Trump has no bearing on such things.

    Its hardly necessary to mock Trump, he does it well enough himself.

    Don't upset the nutter. He's reaping what he has sown, he's almost a parody of himself. I saw he called Trudeau "two faced", this from the man who is all smiles and big mates with world leaders then attacks them by tweet when he's on the way home.

    America only ever does things that are good for America. The "allowing generous welfare programmes" is a right wing American lie they tell themselves to hide the fact that they could afford the same but have a dysfunctional health system to line the pockets of those on the make.

    A reference to the black face and the white face perchance?

    Probably not - way too subtle for Trump.

    Hey! Many Americans hate Trump (impeachment is a-coming) and insulting him doesn't mean a rejection of America. :)

    It’s practically impossible not to treat Trump’s behaviour with derision.

    It's really not looking good for his re-election.

    But hey - Boris denied they were taking the p*** out of him so it must be true.

    It was like Goggle Box but with the PMs talking about Trump. And if we are honest, all of Johnson's peers are talking about him in the same way.
    None of these politicians are winning power through through the profundity of their ideas. They are winning power through sowing discord and using populist methods to whip up half the country against minorities. Last time that happened it didn’t end well. I see Johnson seeks to stop the Supreme Court and Parliament overriding the executive as part of his manifesto. If he gets a majority be prepared for what you are unleashing. It won’t be pleasant for very many.

    Problem is - as soon as he wins the election Jonhson will be on a plane to Washington to kiss his a**e

    All this pathetic play acting to try and fool the electorate that he doesn't want to be involved with him.

    God - I hope we don't elect this lot.

    If there wasn't an election next week, Boris would be all over Trump. Even Boris recognises that Trump is toxic at this time and that any overt support or endorsement will work negatively against the Tories. Apparently he's one of hardly any who didn't plan a one to one meeting with Trump while he was here which is rather different to his former bum licking performances.

    I see he's copped a strop now and gone home early, expect a series of mardy tweets over the next few days.

    Trump has become a caricature of himself.

    Surely the US electorate will get shot of him next year.

    Note to self:
    Check if Johnson is with Trump 19th December.

    You'd think so, wouldn't you. You'd think we'd be glad to see the back of Johnson, Gove, Rees-Mogg and the like but I suspect we're getting them back next Thursday. :(
    Labour have certainly upped their game round here. It's been a safe LibDem seat for decades but the popular incumbent retired after losing to Labour last time and his replacement isn't really hacking it. The place is awash with Labour posters and boards.

    Not condoning their alleged behaviour.
    But hey, Trump's never mocked anyone, has he? ;):D
    And some of his 'victims' (such as that disabled person) were in no position to fight back.
    If you don't like the heat.....

    Once again, Trump has made it all about him.
    And the media exacerbates that by making it headline news.
