There must be some rule that leaders of the my-country-first club wear absurd hairstyles. Of course, we see Donald Trump and his unique do, but then we notice the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s just-out-of-bed look, one filled with nightmares and monsters. The two men talked last night at the NATO Summit, but afterward something startling happened.
POTUS tweeted about a good meeting with Johnson. After that though, the situation went over the cliff of doom:
‘Enjoyed my meeting with Prime Minister @BorisJohnson of the United Kingdom at @10DowningStreet last night. Talked about numerous subjects including @NATO and Trade.’
French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte were laughing at Trump’s expense at his behavior at the summit. POTUS tweeted positively about Johnson, but was it before he saw the video that went viral?
The men appeared oblivious to the idea their conversation might be captured as they joked out in the open. They were definitely making fun of Trump even though they did not use his name.
In it, Johnson asked why Macron was late:
‘Is that why you were late?’
Macron shook his head yes and Trudeau responded:’
‘He was late because he takes a … 40-minute press conference at the top. (Reference to Trump’s long press conference)’
Then, Trudeau said:
‘You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.’
Early Wednesday morning, Trump called Trudeau “two-faced,” so he had probably seen the video by then. Take a look at it, and see what you think:
‘.@JustinTrudeau, @EmmanuelMacron, @BorisJohnson,, and other VIPs shared a few words at a Buckingham Palace reception Tuesday. No one mentions @realDonaldTrump by name, but they seem to be discussing his lengthy impromptu press conferences from earlier in the day. (Video: Host Pool)’

There was limited press access, and the person recording the event only caught pieces of their conversation. The White House had no comment.
