Trump roundly booed and hissed at during Davos conference

White supremacist in chief Donald Trump is embarrassing the United States right now at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Showing up with nothing but his racist brand of 1920s isolationist politics, his presence has been contextualized by other world leaders as a selfish and dangerous bully in the same tier as “leaders” like Vladimir Putin. During a question and answer session on Friday, Trump was asked … it doesn’t really matter what he was asked, as he was going to say what he would say regardless. He began to lament how popular with the media he’s always been. He doesn’t understand why he’s always been so popular—maybe it was how much of a cartoonish wealthy brat he was and is, and how desperate and active he’s always been at courting press in any tabloid and in any medium, anywhere. But Trump cannot talk about anything without attacking it, be it human, animal, plant, mineral, or noun.

Campaign Action

It wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how fake the press can be—as the cameras start going off in the background.

Self-fulfilling prophesy much?

That statement brought uncomfortable laughs, that were very quickly overtaken by hissing and boos from the predominantly human audience. Watch the video below.
