So long as Donald Trump remains president of the United States, America will remain the laughingstock of the world. Don’t believe us? These Nordic prime ministers prove it.
The prime ministers threw shade at the president’s recent international trip with a nod to the now infamous orb of power picture that was snapped and then went hugely viral.
The Nordic prime ministers of Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Iceland were photographed joining together placing their hands on a football reminiscent of the image of Trump joining the king of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud at the opening of the Global Center for Combatting Extremist Ideology. The viral image made for several hilarious memes and good laughs within the Twitter sphere.

The image is hilarious and is a direct jab at our orange president. However, it stands as a prime example of the fact Trump is an embarrassment among world leaders. With Trump speaking at the G7 Summit, you had world leaders standing behind him appearing to smirk at his comments. You also had the newly elected French president snubbing him when greeting other world leaders. Then there was the whole incident with Trump pushing past the prime minister of Montenegro in a literal example of Trump’s “America First” policy.
Furthermore, with the recent comments from German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Europe can no longer rely on a Trump-led United States and her refusal to back down from those comments, it’s evident what world leaders think of Trump. He’s crass, he’s undiplomatic, he’s a goon, he’s a clown, he’s a buffoon, and he’s not someone they want to work with. All we can hope is that they understand that although Americans did elect him to the highest office in the nation, not all Americans want him as their president.
