Yes, you read that right. He really and truly has.
"At what point," the leader of our nation asked in his statement concerning his withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Accord and from any pretense of moral leadership on the issue of climate change, "do they start laughing at us as a country?"
I think Mr. Trump intended that as a rhetorical question. However, the answer is actually quite obvious.
They've already started. They started last November when we elected a joke to be our president. It started when we picked a man whose ignorance of the issues he would face and even of his own country's Constitution was nearly total. It started when the United States chose as its leader a man who nobody in his own world of business took seriously, and who has been making a laughingstock of our nation ever since.
You are the reason the world is laughing at us, Mr. President. And you can stop the laughing at any moment. Just a one-sentence note to the Secretary of State, Mr. President. That's all it will take. And Dick Nixon even left you an example of how to word it.
Hey. You're going to have to do it anyway and probably sooner rather than later. Why make the world laugh at us any longer than necessary?
