Donald Trump is a joke to the world. Worse, he has become an embarrassment to the country after his continual emotional outbursts. Even our closest allies have been making fun of him, and one prime minister was down right hilarious.
One of the president’s first acts was to pick a fight with the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in their introductory phone call. Trump even called the it “the worst call by far.”
A political editor at a TV network leaked the audio, which caught the Australian prime minister mocking Trump. Supposedly, the event with reporters was off record and closed-door.
Turnbull mimicked Trump about “the fake polls,” according to USA Today:
‘The Donald and I … we are winning in the polls. We are! Not the fake polls. We are winning in the real polls. You know, the online polls. They are so easy to win.’
The prime minister then went on to talk about the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia:
‘I HAVE THIS RUSSIAN GUY. BELIEVE ME, IT’S TRUE, IT IS TRUE.’
After the leak of Turnbull impersonating Trump, the prime minister became slightly embarrassed himself. However, he did not defend his impersonation.
No one considers the Austrian prime minister a professional comedian, but he certainly didn’t do a bad job with his Trump material. It seems, Australia’s 9News reported, that the prime minister joked about his meeting with the president last month. Apparently, Trump was a rude three hours late for their New York meeting.
Britain’s editor of Mashable, Anne-Marie Tomchak, took to Twitter to ask an important question:
‘Wonder how Turnbull’s next call with Trump will go after this?’

After the leak, Turnbull told a Melbourne talk-radio station that his comments were supposed to have been “good-humored roast.” Of course, Donald Trump does not take kindly to being the butt of a joke. Certainly, he will not appreciate Turnbull mocking him.
Sadly, what the president does not understand is that he started the whole thing himself with that first unfortunate call.
